Managing uncertainty in digital projects
Hosted on July 9, 2020
Learn about the strategies we’ve used to navigate ambiguity and achieve success in digital projects.
About the Webinar
In Managing Uncertainty in Digital Projects, a panel of our Engagement Management leads have a discussion about strategies we’ve used to navigate ambiguity and achieve success. They discuss common points of uncertainty in projects like knowing when to pivot, finding stakeholder consensus, and staying effective while being distributed. They also share some of our own best practices and examples of challenges that helped mold our perspective on how planning, collaborating, and confident decision making can be the key to finding the right path forward.
This is part of our ongoing webinar series on tackling design and technology challenges.
