Project managers understand that the increasing level of complexity of the project environment, the more likey a project can become a troubled project. For this very reason employing best practices in project management are critical in keeping all the checks and balances in place. Expertise in implementing a solid governance framework guiding the processes and the roles each team member plays not only ensures a successful project delivery, but allows for a strategic project plan that can ultimately set an organization apart from its competitors. When effectively employed, sound project management techniques improve collaboration among all stakeholders. Experienced project managers are experts in leveraging their own communication talents with the appropriate tools in place to navigate and reduce the inevitable rise of some sort of trouble looming in most project settings.
To do this I’m sitting down with industry insider, Mark Hall who is an executive with 20+ years experience applying Project Management Best Practices to business operations in the Aviation and Semiconductor industries.
