Turning Crisis into a Project

As Project Professionals we long for control – so when a crisis impacts our project, we can feel that we should have a plan. Everyone wants answers – “what should we do?” “how should we respond?” – the reality is that sometimes the crisis could never have been predicted or planned for and that the team feels helpless.

This session shows how a simple framework can be used to navigate from being totally overwhelmed by a crisis right through to actually turning it into a project. As Einstein once said, “At the centre of every crisis is an opportunity waiting to be seen”.
