Warm up a project team and bring out the best in each participant. Prepare your people to anticipate and navigate the heat of project pitfalls.

In this training session, participants advise a recently finished project–an IT roll-out of a new system. The catch? Nobody's satisfied. The project failed to deliver as expected; the potential value was insufficiently tapped and there were overruns. In teams, participants revisit the project to identify the issues, deliver better results and maximize business value while balancing diverse stakeholder needs. The challenges are universal. The lessons are as memorable like the burn of a hot pepper. Help your company learn from mistakes long before the stakes are too high by playing Celemi Cayenne–the secret ingredient for securing project success.
