Event on 2015-09-16 17:30:00
EVENT DESCRIPTION: One of the most unpredictable elements of project success and value realization is people; the “human factors” that can influence the timeline, scope, budget, teamwork, stakeholder satisfaction, and the adoption and utilization of project outputs (which are the necessary prerequisites for value creation).  But while traditional project management processes help to increase the chance of project success, they are often times insufficient when developing plans to address the various stakeholder management expectations and change adoption needs required to facilitate value creation. Today’s well-rounded, forward-thinking project managers understand that good project management rely not just on managing requirements, but also on managing change and ever-evolving stakeholder needs.
