Brian_MunroeBrian Munroe, founder and CEO of MTI Learning and President and Chairman of the Board of PMI’s Troubled Project Specific Interest Group, shares with us insights he presented at the PMI Global Congress on his methodology for effectively and efficiently planning and executing the entire project rescue process

His presentation was nominated by the Troubled Projects Community of Practice.

He will describe the Rescue My Project methodology as well as its similarities to and differences with other methods that are being used. Brian says that as project professionals we have often tried all the tricks and tips to bring a troubled project back on track. However, as project complexity increases, so too does the root causes of the trouble and often a “back to basics” rescue approach needs to be initiated. He believes that as organizations become more receptive to their project managers looking for assistance we need to develop the skills required to assist these same organizations in project recovery to avoid total failure.

Brian is a seasoned leader with extensive project management experience. He is an international speaker and trainer on project rescue. He is a dynamic, engaging speaker, passionate about recovering troubled projects. Brian has led many projects in a wide variety of sectors and regularly conducts Project Rescue consultancy services for his clients.
