  • Description

    If a zombie outbreak happened tomorrow, would you be ready? What happens when you find yourself in another death-march project or client? We learn the most valuable and long-lasting lessons when we face and overcome impossible situations, and what is more impossible than a zombie apocalypse? Using disaster preparedness as a backdrop, we will demonstrate the importance of root cause analysis, process analysis, risk mitigation, project scoping, business rules, and implementation planning as foundations for overcoming impossible project challenges. You will learn how the same warning signs and steps needed to survive common disasters like storms can help you develop survival skills during critical project phases. In reverse, you will learn how your IT project skills can be applied to daily situations to improve your competency and have a better balanced life.
