The UL Approach to Risk & Stakeholder Management

On November 1st, the Chicagoland Chapter of the Project Management Institute held the 3rd annual Project Development Day Event in Rolling Meadows, IL.    The title of the event was “Going beyond the Triple Constraints”, and there were 4 tracks of educational programming offered.    I was the track lead for track #3 covering stakeholder management, procurement, and risk management, and I was responsible for getting 7 speakers from a wide variety of application areas, including IT, manufacturing, construction, and transportation, as well as project management consulting firms that specialized in everything from Lean Six Sigma, public speaking/leadership principles, and strategic planning.    During the next week, I intend to give summaries of the presentations that were given at the PD Day Event.
