Have you ever faced resistance from stakeholders or sponsors when trying to practice good project management? Have you ever worked in organizations with little project management maturity, but had to deliver value anyway? Learn how you can use stealth project management to deliver value through good project management practices even when stakeholders resist. This presentation will involve scene reenactments of actual situations that many project managers face in dealing with resistance to project management methodologies.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
(1) describe common scenarios project managers face in low-maturity organizations with stakeholder resistance to, and misunderstanding of, project management methodologies;
(2) apply different techniques to overcome resistance from stakeholders in order to deliver business value through project management practices.
