Presentation Details:

When I’m asked what I do, my answer is, “I manage expectations.” Managing expectations seems to encompass all the responsibility a Project Manager has on a project. Project expectations have their foundation in communication that typically occurs during an upfront process; possibly the sales process, but not always.

The PM may or may not have been present or taken part in that communication. The client representative on the project may not have been present for that communication. And who knows what interpretation of the communication anyone left the conversation with? Tranquilo! You always have the Statement of Work, right? Of course you don’t. So, what do you do?

This discussion will explore some of the reasons why a clear, concise SOW is not always available when the PM begins work and what might be done to avoid meltdown and total project failure.

Talent Triangle Category: Leadership

Byrnes-BrettBrett’s project management career in the healthcare industry began as a Project Leader in the development of single-use, disposable medical products for U.S. and European surgical-suite applications. His work emphasized client product requirement definition; translating requirements to technical function and design for manufacturability; project scope definition; and project task monitoring/controlling for product and project quality assurance. After 8 years of progressive learning experiences that included a brief stint as a Sales Consultant for a Durable Medical Equipment provider, Brett completed his MBA in Global Business Strategy at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Brett currently works as a Project Manager in Implementation Services for a patient-to-payment hospital software solution provider.
