Workshop 3: Warp-Speed Project Wrangling
Adele Shakal, Cisco
Bring your wildest projects to this workshop, facilitated by an experienced technical project manager, and let’s wrangle them together!
Some basic project management techniques can quickly allow IT teams to be more efficient and effective. The big question is “What are we trying to do?” and a short list of the most useful follow-up questions can help all involved to better understand and define a project’s scope, time, cost, stakeholders, governance, and communications needs.
This collaborative session will allow participants to speedily apply appropriate and effective management techniques to their own real-world projects.
