Colin D. Ellis joined us on the call today, taking your questions including:
I am often asked how I would handle a person on my team who is reluctant, or resistant, to participating on the project. I would be interested to know how you and our community members would respond to this inquiry.
~ From Deb
Do you have any recommendations for managing the close out of one set of projects while another set of projects is kicking off? I find that my focus gets pulled towards the new projects like a shiny object and I forget to schedule the outstanding items related to closing out the old ones since they no longer have relate-able deadlines.
~ From Christina
How do you keep stakeholders interested and focused on the project at hand? Notably, stakeholders who are spread thin across a multitude of projects and the one in question is just one of many?
~ From Krysti
