Project Management Best Practices

October 26

Gain an understanding of project management best practices to avoid the top causes of project failure.

Despite decades of research confirming common causes of project failure, 50-70% of projects still fail, depending on the surveys you examine. According to the Project Management Institute and others 10% or more of every project dollar is wasted at a rate of $1m every ten seconds. Until organizations value project management and adopt a continuous improvement mindset, this problem will not go away. This topic examines project management best practices to avoid the top causes of project failure. Adopting or strengthening these practices will improve project success over time. This material is critical for senior executives, managers, PMO leaders, and project managers seeking to enhance business and project success.
