    Getting Unstuck – Keeping Your Plans Moving Forward

    You've been drafting and socializing your project for months. Key players are on board. You've reviewed the entire project with senior leadership for final executive sign-off and… nothing. There's lots of discussion and review, but still no progress. The project is stuck! You're stuck. Now what? Whether you have a specific project or a large scale initiative, this session will show you the tools, techniques, and approaches for getting your plans (and you) "unstuck" and back on track.
