Clear Communications on Project Teams: Send Lawyers, Guns, and Money
Presented by Ken Hanley, KTH Program and Project Management, Inc.
All the research and academia and lectures aside, it comes down to two things:
1. Am I understanding?
2. Am I doing everything I can to make myself understood?
The world we work in isn’t so complicated as to require complex theorems and formula and lectures to figure it out: Ken will talk about the ‘basic stuff’, the day –to-day blocking and tackling of understanding and being understood that’ll make our work days better and more effective.
Through stories and anecdotes, advice and cautions (“Whatever you do, don’t do this dumb thing I did!”), questions and questionable quotes, Ken will take us through an hour of the ‘try this’ and ‘don’t do that’ that’s he’s learned over twenty years of working with PMs and BAs, and the people that PMs and BAs work with.
