This problem is way above my pay grade. How can I get it resolved?
If you've ever watched a project fall apart because critical information didn't get to the right people at the right time—or at all—you know how frustrating it can be. The answer may be simple and straightforward, but if time is wasted hiding the problem or spreading blame, minor issues can turn into major messes. (We won't even contemplate the major issues.) Sometimes, people don't even realize that there is an issue; why would anyone care about a little 3-day delay, right?

It doesn't have to be that way, if you get the right information to the right people, soon enough for them to do something about it. Your teams need constructive ways to "escalate" issues (especially messy and critical ones), so tough decisions can be made quickly. You need an escalation process.

This course explains the importance of issue escalation processes and the many ways they can help your team, beyond just faster issue resolution. You'll avoid project sinkholes, and your customers will be in the loop on all the important issues, without people hitting the panic button unnecessarily.
