I conducted two 3-hour sessions entitled “Yes We Can:  Team Building as a Means to Re-Align a Project”.
Content:  Project recovery missions are probably one of the most difficult challenges a project manager may face. Alone a project manager cannot handle such a situation. It takes a team to do so. The workshop will show why and how team building can be an effective and efficient mean to re-align projects gone astray.The presentation  can be  viewed and downloaded here.

Impressions of the 2 workshops can be viewed in my online photo album.
