Keynote Synopsis

The Dark Arts of Project Management 

Successful journey from start to finish of a project is not linear, clean, forecastable or easy. Your interest is to deliver the project on time, on budget with a smile on everyone’s face, but others have conflicting interests.

Armed with your System Development Life Cycle (SDLC), a planning tool of your choice and the innocence that always comes at the start of a project you think you are set to go. Then the plan that you have worked so hard to perfect shows a flaw, falls behind schedule or budget, gets amended or completely thrown out all together. How do you minimize these occurrences and provide the best chance to survive the project intact.

This presentation will start with the Top 10 Keys to Success which include Communicate, Communicate, Communicate; Managing Change and Expectations; Pace, Perfection and Price – pick 3? We will then discuss how to become a Master Magician covering topics such as Winning at Politics; Control others through Influence; Communicate & Motivate and why you need to Market the Project.

While it takes less than 8 hours to learn how to use a tool to manage a project it takes a lifetime to learn the art of successfully running a project. This presentation will focus on the Soft-side of project management, having fun with the topic and using audience participation to share the community’s intelligence.
