"Analysis is the study of a problem prior to taking some action."
Tom DeMarco

Worry Management is the ability of the Project Manager/Leader to identify and manage the attention given to elements of the project that can cause the project difficulties. Successful Project Leaders are able to properly manage these concerns, issues, and “fires” that routinely confront a project team in the pursuit of effectively completing their project.

This course provides Project Leaders with the tools and techniques which will help them to catalog a worry (e.g. issue, risk, assumption, etc.) for later consideration, to develop a plan to address the worry, and to marshal assistance in the execution of the plan to dispose of the worry and to move on.
