Fast Tracking Project Concepts - 1 PDU

Nothing is worse (or better) for a senior project manager or business analyst than being handed a project that is: strategic, very large, and way outside your comfort zone in complexity. These projects will sometimes roll around the halls of big companies for months while they struggle to gain sufficient momentum and clarity to really move forward with a sense of purpose and direction. Let’s say one of these career-bruisers/-builders is yours? What do you do next?
