Tools and Techniques: From Vision to Reality: Negotiating Desired Outcomes
Synopsis: Getting results is the goal of project managers. The process of making this happen starts with defining a purpose, forming a vision, and working through mission and goals to deliver outputs, preferably outcomes desired by the customer or client. In practice, many steps are missed or skipped, and stakeholders resist. This session traverses the journey from vision to reality, defining terms, sharing examples, and illustrating how negotiating skills are crucial to the process. The net outcome for participants does not require learning a whole new process; rather you come to embrace accountability as a vital tool and adopt a mindset about key concepts and techniques that make you more complete—and immediately effective—as a project manager.
