Has This Ever Happened to You?

Even if you've never worked on a project like this, you've probably seen others like it. Everyone's working, but every week the little schedule slips pile up a little bit higher. It's time to counter "death by little slips" with a dose of urgency.

If you're trying to solve this problem with your current team, or even if you're just trying to keep it from happening to you, this course can help inject a much-needed sense of urgency when it's really called for—without stressing everyone out. The trick is to model that urgency with small changes in how the team is run, and talk everyone into better ownership of those critical daily deadlines without demoralizing people who are already working hard.
