PDC 2018 - Day 2 Evening Keynote: Kevin Kidney - Project Delivery in the Age of "Phoenix"

Topic: Project Delivery in the Age of "Phoenix"

The delivery of large complex projects is difficult under the most advantageous winning conditions. In the current era, where the transformation of pay administration initiative (Phoenix) within the Government of Canada is in the news on a regular basis, organizations are asking a question about their own current and proposed projects: "How can we prevent being a "Phoenix?". The presentation will focus on the various lessons learned identified through independent audits of the project, and the strategies that can be employed on your projects to better prepare your client to be successful. Some examples will be explored from recent personal experience of project challenges in the age of Phoenix.
