Virtual Event via Zoom |


If Projects always went according to plan, Project Leaders would have nothing to do. We would be able to lead our projects forward in two hours per week. We would check in with our team members, get universal thumbs-ups, and publish a status report with nothing but good news!

Since that never happens, it's time we admit "RISKS & ISSUES AREN'T JUST FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS!" That's why the world needs Project Leaders because we know that Projects rarely go according to plan, and we spend the vast majority of our 40 hours each week navigating Risk and Change to #GSD. Conquering Risk and Change is what we do!

So why is it that when we ask CEOs how well their organizations navigate Project Risk and Change, the answer is unanimous…"Poorly!"

Join J. Scott, Founder @120VC, creator of the Transformation Accelerator, and author of "The Irreverent Guide to Project Management, An Agile Approach to Enterprise Project Management," and "It's Never Just Business, It's About People," on a journey that will demystify Risk and Change. Learn several practical, proven techniques that will have your stakeholders feeling like "YOU HAVE EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL," even if your Project is a veritable dumpster fire!


Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the Project Leadership Value Proposition.
  • Conquering the 3 different types of Risks (Potential, Actual & Imminent).
  • Learn why nobody is actually managing to the Critical Path & how to correct it!
  • Learn How to eliminate Actual and Imminent Risk by managing to the Critical Path.
  • Learn How to Master the Concept of Project Team Demand Management – The Missing Half of Project Success.
  • Learn how to master Change by not trying to manage it.
Disclaimer: This presentation is not for those afraid of heights, don't think Saturday Night Live is funny, aren't interested in developing mad skills or crybabies! The session will be conducted in a remote region of the Zoom universe with no access to the "Waaaambulance"!


Target Audience:

If you are a Project, Program, Portfolio, Product, Scrum Master, Organizational Change Manager, Operations, or HR Manager, you were hired to achieve transformational results and enable the team to get sh*t done.

"Jason Scott is a dynamic speaker that is passionate about Leadership. I have heard him present on several topics over the past 3+ years, drawing in both new and seasoned project managers. I have recommended him to speak at meetings for several local Southern California PMI Chapters. Not only is he a great speaker, but his follow-up after the meeting is always timely as he treats his audience with the utmost priority." - Deby Covy, PMI Los Angeles | [email protected]

"Jason has been a guest speaker in my project management courses at USC Marshall School over the past five years. He is an informative, enthusiastic and inspiring speaker who is a pleasure to work with. Jason has a great sense of humor which helps him captivate his audience. His personal stories help him to enrich the subject matter and connect his content to the audience. I have always appreciated that he engages with my students and motivates them to participate in his talk. He is clearly a thought leader in project management and empowers his audience with tangible learning points and tools." - Murat Bayiz, Professor of Clinical Data Science and Operations Management at USC - Marshall School of Business | [email protected]

"Jason Scott is a provocative and evocative speaker. His highly engaging and irreverent style leaves listeners more than just informed or even enlightened. It leaves them altered. Jason has an ability to cut through normal corporate-speak to the heart of the matter in a light and fun way, while lacking no clarity about what is at stake. Organizations and individuals who hear his message will be better because of it." - Mark P. Murphy, CEO of Advisor to CEO's, Inc. | [email protected]
