How can you lead projects to double the impact in half the time? We asked ourselves that simple, but provoking question in May 2015. The aim? To rethink the way we lead projects and change that fact that only 30% of projects today succeed. Since then, 3 universities, 17 pilot projects and over 1850 dedicated project practitioners have experimented with and co-created what is today known as the Half Double methodology. A methodology not only based on the latest research, but on what works in practice. Suited for a reality characterized by complexity, chaos and uncertainty. A methodology providing you with the principles, methods and tools you need to capture the potential of your projects.
This is in the fourth installment in an 8-part webinar series, A Billion Dollar Project Health Framework, presented by Uri Galimidi. The series covers an advanced yet practical framework which Project Managers can use to assess the health of their projects. The framework consists of eight key project management areas. This webinar covers An Executable Plan and will include: · A description of the key risk factors within the project management area · Guidelines for assessing when to raise the “Red Flag” for each risk factor · Guidelines on what to do with the Red Flag once you have it raised · Real-life case stories illustrating the risk factor and its impact on your project.
As project managers, we strive to learn from our past experiences, and we guide and teach others to do the same. We leverage approaches such as lessons learned to fine-tune the methodology, all to make each project better than the last, and sometimes we succeed. However, when navigating the domain of the unpredictable, these traditional lessons learned often “come up short” for advice, hence the need for a different type of lesson that I call “strategic lessons learned.”

An organization that isn’t failing at anything is either paralyzed strategically or dangerously unaware of what’s actually going on. Indeed, successful organizations often fail more than faltering ones, but they leverage the experiences into positive stepping-stones.
