Session 3:  Leveraging the Early Warning Signs of Project Failure (and Success)
Tuesday, July 27, 2021
12:15 pm – 1:15 pm

Project metrics are of four kinds: 1) trailing indicators that reveal where we are today, 2) leading indicators that extrapolate into the future in an attempt to tell us where we will end up, 3) Early Warning Signs (EWS) that provide a forewarning of impending project challenges or failure, and 4) delivered business value.  Traditional project management methodologies emphasize trailing indicators (such as actual cost, schedule variance, cost variance, utilization rate, and others) and leading indicators (such as Earned Value and Planned Value).  Unfortunately, numerous studies reveal that traditional project management often fails to deliver expected business value.  It is apparent we are not measuring the right things.  In this presentation we will explain why the key to project success is tracking the Early Warning Signs of project disfunction, how to monitor them continuously and how to leverage strategic project intelligence to implement a systemic approach to effective project management, and success. 

Who should attend:
Experienced senior project managers
PMO directors
