How to Break Through Project Barriers and Get the Work Done

August 7

Learn practical techniques for evaluating a project situation and then applying the proper communication, conflict-resolution techniques.

No matter how many projects you have managed or been a part of, there are always barriers and challenges which pop up you didn’t expect or never dealt with before. Heraclitus said, “If you do not expect the unexpected, you will not recognize it when it arrives.” The first step every project must take is to consider the potential risks for the effort and analyze each for impact and likelihood. The next decision is to figure out which risks merit a prevention or mitigation plan and to develop these and integrate them into the project plan. The third action is to develop a generic risk plan, which will serve as a guide to dealing with unexpected risks or barriers that arise. Successful project teams avoid panic by being ready to act and are flexible enough to modify their project plan to accommodate the new reality. No matter your title or the type of projects or extra assignments you work on you will be able to anticipate, act, adapt, and annihilate barriers to project success.
