Recognize and Recover Troubled Projects
The Nonprofit Village presents:
"Recognize and Recover Troubled Projects"
Sometimes, despite our best intentions, projects and programs fail. Whether it is a campaign, a fundraising event, or a computer system implementation, sometimes things don’t go as planned. What can be done to get it back on track? Is it even worth saving? If you do get it back on track, how can you be sure it won’t happen again? First step is to recognize the signs. Second is to step up and take action. Finally, learn from the experience. Walk away with tools and techniques to assess the status of your own projects and help them stay on track.
In this session, participants will explore:
• Common symptoms and indicators that trouble is ahead
• Strategies to rescue a failing project before it is too late
• Proactive strategies to reduce the risk of project failure in the future
A light breakfast will be served.
