Helping Project Managers Develop Ability in Managing Uncertainties and Ambiguities in Their Projects
Project managers are regularly confronted with complex and ambiguous situations in their projects. Ambiguities in projects impact decision making, evoke negative emotions such as stress or anxiety and can have long-term consequences on job satisfaction and burnout. The webinar will present findings from three interrelated studies on managing ambiguities in projects. We will present a catalog of ambiguous situations in projects, including types of ambiguities and specific examples of ambiguities in projects. We will outline and discuss individual, organizational, and situational conditions affecting tolerance of ambiguity, and provide a range of recommendations and strategies for managing ambiguities in projects. Findings from these studies were drawn from the established literature on ambiguities and uncertainties in projects, data from interviews with experienced project managers, and a longitudinal survey with 275 project managers.

A project leader of a functional team, in late 2020, may encounter external stakeholders that may negatively affect aspirational guidelines that all PMs must strive to achieve. By nature of this type of organization, a PM has little or no formal power. How does a PM maintain the position of being fair, being factual with stakeholder raising conflict, defending himself/herself in a responsible manner, and respecting those stakeholders bringing negative (perceived or real) risks? In the process groups of initiation and executing, I plan to share also two to three examples from projects in the ASIC supply chain business experienced in the past (good, bad, ugly) in the in the initiation and execution areas.
