Are you tired of hearing “it’s not possible”? Maybe you’re more familiar with “it won’t work”. You may have gotten into the habit of saying it yourself as you review requirements and project plans. In a world where all we hope for is optimism, it surprises most people to learn that this sort of negative approach isn’t bad at all. It turns out that it’s the best thing for a project as long as framed the right way.

In this session, we’ll explain why and how to use this type of pushback from the tech experts and development teams to start your projects off right. We’ll work through the reasons why this type of thinking needs to be embraced in order to jumpstart projects the right way – by directly addressing the development hurdles that are wildly apparent to the tech team, but not to leadership.

The goal is to improve communication and understanding that a techie’s concerns are good for projects. Just as the strongest steel is forged by the hottest fires, the toughest questions can build the best project plans.
