In the 1990s, NASA launched a programme of missions under the banner “Faster-Better-Cheaper”.
Mike will show how NASA was both doomed to fail (why project management theory says “faster, better, cheaper” is impossible),
yet found a way to triumph. More important, he’ll explain the
powerful insight that can allow you to achieve “faster, better, cheaper”
in your projects and your life, and really get more for less.
Think about how it would feel to understand how someone is thinking:

Mike offers you practical advice to help you thrive and capitalise on organisational change.
Understand why change often catches us unawares and leaves us
shocked and in a state of denial. Learn how to challenge your own
assumptions and the rumours that can get in the way of informed
decisions, by asking yourself powerful questions that will give you a
deep insight into the changes and how they affect you.
Making decisions should be easy: yet it isn’t.
We often feel ill-equipped to “take the plunge” wondering:
“is my analysis is sound”, and “how much to trust my intuition?”
Let Mike be your guide to these tricky issues and also show you the traps, pitfalls and biases that often lead others into catastrophic errors.

easy to apply, very good speaker.”
