Manage episode 307768551 series 2822167
In this episode, Nick Hopkins tells us about the difficulties of running projects in organisations that believe their people are empowered, but in reality decisions are funnelled trough a small group of people.
He also tells us about running projects the deliver changes the stakeholders don't want, and how to work around resistant stakeholders.
This interview is part of Pragmatic PMO’s “Scary Scars Shared” series, in which Ken BurrelI asks Real Project Managers to share in around ten minutes the lessons they have learned from managing projects, so that the whole project management community can learn from their experiences.
Sharing short, sharp, project lessons interviews like this is just one of the pragmatic pointers recommended in Ken's book “Learning lessons from Projects: How it works, why it goes wrong, and how it you can do it better”, available from http://bit.ly/KensLLBook
