When is it OK to be Red? Tools for the Project Manager

When Is it OK to be Red?  Tools for the Project Manager

Join us for an Expert Insights Webinar
3:30 – 4:30 p.m., Thursday, March 31, 2016

PProject Managers may fear red – the color used on a status report that indicates the project is not going as planned. This webinar will ease your fear of red. Hear examples of when red in a project has saved a company from making bad decisions. Learn to choose strategies that change your project team’s culture to accept red and how to manage stakeholders through the red. Discover tools you can start using that same day.

Even if you are not a project manager, these strategies can be applied to help you build a department culture that acknowledges when processes are failing and use it as an opportunity for improvement instead of blame.
