Offered by IAG Consulting (REP 2858)
Duration 1 hour 1 PDU or 1 CDU 1 Cat A Free

So you’ve been assigned a complex,
poorly defined project concept
So now what?

Nothing is worse (or better) for a senior project manager or analyst than being handed a project that is: strategic, very large, and way outside your comfort zone in complexity.

These projects will sometimes roll around the halls of big companies for months while they struggle to gain sufficient momentum and clarity to really move forward with a sense of purpose and direction.

  • Let’s say one of these career-bruisers/-builders is yours?
  • What do you do next?

This session is about the tactics of early-stage project intake and clarification – getting clarity efficiently.

Learning objectives:

  1. Inside the project intake process – why is intake so dysfunctional?
  2. The action plan – simple steps that drive project clarity and milestones that deliver benefit.
  3. Targeted result – time tested deliverables that work

So What is Flawless Consulting?

Consulting relationships with our clients are considered
Lateral Relationships.

  • A lateral relationship in management is a link between people working with the same organization without a direct level of authority over each other.
  • The power balance in lateral relationships is always open to ambiguity – and to negotiation!

When a consultant gets resistance from a client, sometimes we aren’t sure whether to push the client harder or to let the issue go.

  • Flawless Consulting is about addressing and managing this kind of ambiguity.
  • Flawless Consulting is about methods and techniques, but the consistent message is that each act that expresses trust in ourselves and belief in the validity of our own experience is always the right path to follow.
  • And    Flawless Consulting Teaches us that Each act that is manipulative or filled with pretense is always self-destructive.

Specific Session Topics Include:

  • Understand and practice a model for having greater influence.
  • Develop commitment from others.
  • Negotiate more effective and enduring working agreements.
  • Effectively deal with difficult people and situations.
  • Develop business partnerships that work.
  • Get better use of your expertise.
  • Avoid no-win situations.
