October Special Event October 14, 2015
Do you ever wonder why projects get into such trouble so often and so quickly??
Do you ever wonder why playing by the rules doesn't work every time??
If so, don't miss out on this great opportunity to hear answers and insight into these questions!! Rick Brenner, principal of Chaco Canyon Consulting, will be giving a one day workshop, worth 8 PDUs, on Wednesday, October 15th on 10 Project Management Fallacies: The Power of Avoiding Hazards.
Most of what we know about managing projects is useful and effective, but some of what we know “just ain’t so.” Identifying the fallacies of project management reduces risk and enhances your ability to complete projects successfully. Even more important, avoiding these traps can demonstrate the value and power of the project management profession in general, and your personal capabilities in particular. In this program we describe ten of these beliefs. There are almost certainly many more, but these ten are a good start. We’ll explore the situations where these fallacies are most likely to expose projects to risk, and suggest techniques for avoiding them.
October Monthly Luncheon October 15, 2015
Join us on Thursday, October 15, 2015 as we welcome Rick Brenner to speak about Managing Projects in Fluid Environments!
He will also be the guest speaker at our October Special Event the previous day, Wednesday, October 14. See above for more info on that event!
Rick Brenner is principal of Chaco Canyon Consulting. He works with people in dynamic problem-solving organizations that are making products so novel or complex that they need state-of-the-art teamwork and stronger relationships among their people.
This program is especially valuable for people involved in projects that are operating in dynamic environments. It is of special interest to those managing projects that are not regarded as mission-critical for the enterprise. Leaders, executives, managers, project managers, program managers, and project team members can all benefit.

Hey! Still looking to get your PMP certification?
A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition should be used as a study reference if taking the PMP® exam. Though the Fifth edition is very similar in many ways to earlier editions, the test is based only on the Fifth edition and using an earlier version may not cover the changes that were made.
