December PMSIG Virtual Meeting – Open Forum – Assumptions, Dependencies, and Risk

Moderated by Jon Bach

Register for this event

For this session of the PMSIG, we’re opening it up to our favorite experts in Product / Program / Project Management…


This will be an open forum to get your tips, tricks, and techniques around 3 topics important to all of us – assumptions, dependencies and risks.

Jon Bach will be our usual facilitator and host, collecting ideas, stories, and questions from you as our audience.

You can attend as a silent participant, of course, but we’re hoping you’re willing to share something specific if you can around these topics:

Assumptions: They say never to assume anything. How can we do that when assumptions are economical and practical? We can’t question everything, so what kinds of things SHOULD we question about our projects that are likely to go wrong?

Dependencies: Something can’t get done unless something else happens first. How can we increase the probability of alignment and motivation of delivery across teams?

Risk: Risk is the LIKELIHOOD of something bad happening to our projects, and the IMPACT if it does. What useful ways have you used to manage or mitigate common project risks.

As we build this community of practice for Product / Program / Project Managers, we’re hoping this kind of forum will be insightful and useful.

Mark your calendar for December 8 at 6 pm to join this interactive live session!
