Level:  Introductory

It is commonly known (and unfortunately accepted) that the majority of IT projects fall far short of meeting expectations, and many are outright failures.

Most failures are not due to technology problems, technical incompetence, or dereliction of duty. Instead they result from neglect of certain team practices for any groups of diverse individuals thrown together to cooperate in a technically complex effort.

This session provides practical, easy-to-implement techniques to improve project outcomes.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to recognize and diagnose organization and team dysfunctions that impact success
  • Techniques for improving personal and team effectiveness in enterprise data projects
