Project HEADWAY: Making Steering Committees Work - Strategies For Better Governance


This presentation is supporting material for this video.

Here's a well known fact that we don't like to say out loud: steering committees don't work. For the most part, they don't perform their role the way they should. As a result, executives often micromanage endlessly or else abdicate their authority entirely, project managers get mixed messages, project teams get frustrated and rework abounds. Part of the challenge is in how steering committees and governances structures are (or, sometimes, aren't) designed. And part of the challenge is how, despite the design and intent of the governance structure, it all falls completely apart in practice. 

This webinar lifts the lid on project governance to explore what is supposed to be happening, why it isn't occurring, and what to do about it. Join Mark Mullaly as he explores the challenges associated with designing effective project governance structures. He will explore what steering committees are supposed to do, why they often don't, and what you can do about it. Make going to a steering committees the highlight of your month, not the thing that you dread most. Here's how.
