Discover how to gauge your stakeholders’ tolerance for risk, assemble a risk plan, build a risk register, and maintain project continuity as risks crop up.

Discover how to build rapport, set mutual expectations, communicate, connect, overcome conflict, get work done, and grow the team. Also included is a look at the top five challenges managers face in leading remote teams and helpful solutions that will get your team on track.

Along the way, Bob McGannon, PMP, shows how to ensure your scope, risk, and change approaches are in sync; recognize warning signs when integration goes awry; and plan the simultaneous integration of multiple projects and customer deliverables.
