About the Program

Projects fail. Anyone who has never managed a failing project has never faced challenges and will likely be unprepared to deal with one. Whether your project or someone else's, failing projects offer unique challenges. Can you recover your failing project? Sure, but not easily as you have likely become part of the problem. Do you even recognize that it is failing? Recovering someone else’s failing project is much easier, though still not always simple. Why is the project failing and are the stakeholders ready to discuss and accept the changes that might be necessary to save the project?

Matthew Weaver will address the challenges (and opportunities) facing project managers when their projects fail or when they are assigned a failing project. He will facilitate discussion on the warning signs, the do-not-cross breaking points, the first steps, and sustaining actions to save a failing project.

About the PM Industry Insights

PM Industry Insights is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.

These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc. 

Both PM Industry Insights and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
