Throughout the life cycle of a project, there will be countless surprises … most of which will cost someone money.  How much time and energy do you waste on a project arguing over which “bucket” should fund the solution?  This session will begin with audience polling on a number of different project scenarios to illustrate differences of opinion as to how the resolution of each scenario should be funded.  Those differences will then be aired and debated through a facilitated discussion, with an ultimate goal of illustrating why front-end planning for – and management of – risks and contingencies is critical.
