Watch in your own time OnDemand


How do we get support, and quickly, from the high-level decision makers for our project?

Gaining a clear decision or directions from the Board can sometimes be a frustrating or long winded process. Gaining support can sometimes be one of the biggest hurdles to starting or continuing a project.

This interview will explain ways to not only get the Board or decision makers to provide timely guidance but also become an advocate for your project. The audience will learn about the Board's expectations, level and type of information required, timing of reporting, format of presentations and likely questions to be asked.

The audience will walk away with an understanding of the details decision makers need in order to make a quick judgement, provide clear direction and have ongoing confidence in the project.
