ResTech Seminar Series: The Accidental Project Manager - Ben Hatton

Thu, 27/06/2019 - 14:00 to 15:00

Have you found yourself unexpectedly responsible for a seemingly easy project that turns complex?  Do you wake in a sweat from a nightmare of herding cats on the sloping deck of the titanic?  Congratulations, you're a project manager!

This seminar will round up the most useful and least effort practices* for the accidental project manager, as told by reluctant occasional project manager Ben Hatton from UNSW IT.

Some death-by-powerpoint-slide titles might include:

Your side-gig as a project manager
Who are you?  Who do you need?  Who's the leader?
If you plan to execute, will you execute to plan?
Show, don't tell
Meeting expectations the easy way
Be agile without Agile
Make good decisions
Make tough decisions

Come for the practical advice, stay for the Dilbert cartoons.

* the most important one being to avoid the job in the first place, obviously.

This is a free seminar. No registration needed.
