If prob­lems are pop­ping up unex­pect­ed­ly around your com­pa­ny’s projects, prod­ucts, and peo­ple, those, my friends, are red flags. Miss­ing them is tan­ta­mount to an acid bath for your orga­ni­za­tion. The thing is, if you don’t know what you’re look­ing for, they’re kin­da tough to spot. 

So how do you spot a red flag before it bites you on the ass? And once you see it, how do you get out of the heat? 

Dig­i­tal Project Man­age­ment Train­er, Rachel Gertz, shares dozens of sub­tle and more obvi­ous clues red flags leave as they stomp through your process, projects, teams, and clients. Then she gives you a help­ful plan to min­i­mize each flag’s throb­bing pain so you can regain your dig­ni­ty. As you learn to read the tracks, you become a skilled red flag hunter. You’ll start spot­ting them in the wild before they attack. 

This lit­tle pock­et­book is great for doc­u­ment­ing your own red flags, too. Make notes and add your own treat­ment plan to keep you and your teams sharp and ready for the most can­tan­ker­ous red flags this side of the Milky Way. 

We’ve got you covered.
