Saturday Session: April 26, 2014
A Billion Dollar Project Blunder.
Presenters: Uri Galimidi

Registration is open

This is probably the largest project failure in history. The question is: Could anything have been done to save this project, and if so, by whom. In this session Uri will first present the background to this project as outline by Steve Kroft of the CBS program 60 Minutes. We will then delve into a group discussion of the root causes of this failure and what would you have done if you were the project manager on this project. But more importantly, we will discuss the lessons we should learn from this failure and the take-aways we should apply to our own projects at work.

This 4 hour workshop will put aside the skills and knowledge you need to have to be a good project manager and focus on what you need to be a great leader.
