User group meeting

Let's face it - every project isn't perfect. You make the perfect project plan, you execute with excitement, and before you know it you've completed 50% of the work with 20% of the work remaining. How do you manage the 30% gap? At first thought, you may want to ignore the overage and cross your fingers that somehow everything will be just fine. You may also want to try and cut some corners internally to stay off the clients radar.

While transparency is a major component of project management, especially in agile and lean methodologies, it's not always the easiest. As project managers, fear can take control of our decisions to communicate effectively with our clients. Fear clouds our ability to be forthcoming with issues as they arise, focus on moving forward with viable solutions, and ultimately negatively impacts respect and relationships with clients and team members

This month, Project Manager Monica Quintana will talk about:

  • Identifying fear and overcoming it
  • Having empathy
  • Creating and maintaining healthy transparency with your clients and your teams
  • Formulating the right approach to communication
  • Gaining client respect as a professional consultant before, during, and after difficult conversations

Pizza and socializing starts at 6:30 p.m.

Discussion and presentations start at 7.

At 8:30 we'll head down to Renegade Brewing Co to continue hanging out

The meet-up will take place at Open Media Foundation, just south of Downtown Denver. 700 Kalamath St. Denver, CO 80204
