Managing Upwards

I am collaborating with Bob McGannon to develop a workshop for the PMOZ conference in Canberra (August 10-12) – Avoiding Project Manglement: Advising Upwards. The workshop brings together three streams of thought; my work on stakeholder management, a collaborative paper with Ken Farnes, From Commander to Sponsor: Managing Upwards in the Project Environment (PMI Denver 2008) and Bob’s work on Intelligent Disobedience.

The workshop will provide a forum for those interested in developing new techniques for managing the expectations and perceptions of important senior managers. The three components of the workshop are:

If the workshop is as successful as we hope, the ideas will roll forward into a new book planned for 2011.
