Please join Dr. Steve Mackay, EIT Founder and Dean of Engineering, to gain an insight into guerrilla project management tools and the successful use of these in real engineering projects.

Some of you may have been trained in project management techniques (e.g. using the acclaimed PMBOK), which can work. In using Guerrilla tactics, you can seriously enhance your classical project management techniques and achieve incredible outcomes in your next project. The world is a considerably more uncertain place, and flexibility and adaptability are becoming key elements in managing any project.

This presentation will give you these guerrilla tools - in which to really nail your next engineering project into the extreme success category! Real life examples of engineering projects where these tools have been successfully applied will be demonstrated.

Guerrillas operate with minimal (and often inferior) resources and are incredibly flexible. This means operating at a low cost with minimal overheads, being extremely action oriented and very elastic. This is the essence of great project management.

The challenge when you are running a project is that you establish controls, build in a hierarchy of managers and established ways of doing things. This can be dangerous as it runs counter-intuitively to individual's initiatives which is the driver of guerrilla project management.

A few obvious examples are to avoid fixed assets; subcontract out where possible. Battlefield communications need to be responsive as you need accurate information and the ability to communicate quickly and effectively with all staff. Especially between staff working in the field to the top level managers. Show your troops the way – ensure your commanders are always in the heat of the battle – to ensure all your key project managers are in the field encountering the real problems occurring.

Give your troops in the field responsibility and measure them immediately on their successes. Avoid multi-layered chains of command as this bogs a good project down.
