PM Happy Hour: How to be "The Wolf" - Taking over broken projects
with Kim Essendrup, PMP & Kate Anderson
Join us on Tuesday, March 21 as the renowned PM Happy Hour podcast duo of Kim Essendrup & Kate Anderson discuss "How to be The Wolf." In a collaborative and interactive session, Kim & Kate will offer their expertise on how to achieve success when taking over broken projects.
A natural stage in a project manager's professional development is when they become the 'fixer' - the one called in to take over or fix 'broken' critical projects. This is hard, stressful work, and you may wonder why you get (or keep getting) the 'dirty' jobs. But these assignments mean your management team has confidence in you. Embrace it!
In this talk, Kate and Kim will talk through how to approach taking over broken projects, and walk you step-by-step through the remediation process. Kate and Kim share their experiences, tips, survival strategies, and even a couple horror stories that will help you get through it alive.
Kim is a PMP certified project manager, TEDx speaker, and PMI Authorized Training Partner with over 20 years of experience managing projects, programs, PMO’s, and the resulting emotional trauma. As CEO and co-founder of RAIDLOG.com and a partner at the PPM consulting firm Kolme Group, LLC, he also has an unnatural fascination with project management tools.
