A02-PM Appetizer: Dealing with Project “Yellow Lights”

A02-PM Appetizer: Dealing with Project “Yellow Lights”

Today we have another PM Happy Hour Appetizer episode!

What’s an appetizer?

These are short format episodes (10- 15 minutes) in between our main shows where we hit on short, informative topics. These topics are too small to fill up a full show, or we want to see if there is enough interest from you, our PM Happy Hour listeners , to turn them into full episodes. So, if you hear an Appetizer and think, “they should make a whole meal out of that!” please let us know and we’ll be happy to do that.

We all run into those little “Yellow Lights” on projects ? those moments when you think, “wait a minute? that’s not right.” All too often, we “floor it” and try to get through the light before it gets red – only to end up in a head-on collision!

Today, we take a lesson from Mahan Khalsa’s great book, “Let’s Get Real or Let’s Not Play” for how to handle these critical moments when we realize that something is definitely not right.


We are going to be moving to a membership model! Of course you will always get your PM Happy Hour podcasts, but what if you want more? PDU’s? PDU’s reported for you to PMI? Bonus content? Webinars? Personal Q&A sessions? Yes! We are working on developing a new Membership for PM Happy Hour listeners. More to come on this in the next month ? if you are interested and want to know more when we have it ready, please sign up for our waiting list here:
