Project and Program Turnaround

January 25, 2017 12:00 PM EST (UTC-5)

Platform: Adobe Connect
Capacity: 1500
Duration: 60 min
Presenter: Tom Pavelko

Unfortunately, about one out of four development programs fail. Sixty-five percent of those that survive do not achieve all their goals.  

A development program or project in trouble is distinct from a program encountering typical development difficulties. Each day its performance seems to be worse, even when team members do not think it possible. A program or project with this problem can appear to be in free fall.

Tom spent many years at a major aerospace company leading the successful recovery of important development programs. He experienced firsthand what causes programs to stop achieving performance, cost, schedule, and quality commitments. He refined ways to evaluate these programs, reorganize them to achieve their commitments and resurrect the morale of the team. Tom strives to lead these teams to enter a high state of productivity that he refers to as being “on step”.

This webinar will pull from the concepts of his new book, “Project and Program Turnaround”. Attendees will walk away being able to identify the essential fundamentals to execute a program turnaround effectively. These include identifying the critical accomplishment that must be achieved next, assigning each program responsibility to one person, capitalizing on colocation and face-to-face communication, recruiting problem solvers, establishing team member commitments, using team accomplishments to propel high team morale and more. These are necessary to get the program team on step and successful.

The guidance provided is applicable to all program or project genres, including nonprofit work, education, medicine, investment management, municipal management, construction and more.
