Can The Zombie Apocalypse Help You Survive Your Projects?

Presented by Hans Eckman

Wednesday October 16th at 6PM
7000 Central Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30328

(location details provided below Eventbrite link)

About this presentation:

If a zombie outbreak happened tomorrow, would you be ready?  What about if you start a death-march project?  We learn the most valuable and long lasting lessons when we face and overcome impossible situations.  Using disaster preparedness as a backdrop, we will show the importance of root cause analysis, process analysis, risk mitigation, project scoping, business rules, and implementation planning as foundations for overcoming impossible project challenges.

  • Learn how your PM, BA and process improvement expertise can be used to decompose even the most challenging situations
  • Discover why situational awareness and problem definition can have the biggest impact to project success or failure
  • Leave with a way to apply and refine your skills outside work while building a plan to survive 3 days, 3 weeks or 3 months
