The very nature of project management brings conflict. We constantly see
conflict over resources, scope, approach, deliverables, roles, and priorities.

Conflict is often dreaded - but it doesn't have to be. Managed well, conflict improves project success.

In this session a model of conflict management will be provided, along with some tips and tricks
for more effectively managing conflict as project manager.
