Scrappy Project Management

Too much project management education--including what you find on bookshelves at stores--is dry. Seemingly impractical and irrelevant. I'm constantly on the lookout for people who are practical and inspiring voices on helping us get better at leading teams and delivering projects.

In this episode, I'm excited to introduce you to Kimberly Wiefling, author of a number of Scrappy Project Management.

In today's discussion, Kimberly will help us understand what it means to be scrappy--and why it's important. We'll talk about some of the predictable and avoidable pitfalls that plague our projects. You'll learn what her Project Success Scorecard is and how it can help you and your team. Kimberly will share insights on dealing with risks and assumptions AND why she recommends you never say No, even to the most ridiculous demands.

Kimberly is as fun as she is brilliant. Learn more about her work at Wiefling.com.
