How to Acquire & Exercise Project Authority

Dan Vickers, PMP. Program & Project Manager at CS STARS.

Have you ever heard someone say, "I have all of the responsibility but none of the authority”? Without the proper authority it is difficult to bear the responsibility for a project, yet this is what we are asked to do many times. As a Project Manager we are responsible for our projects. By virtue of that responsibility we can assume the authority we need for our projects. In this session, we explore various ways to assume authority on a project and how to exercise this authority.
