Project management skills are essential in litigation support to respect deadlines and deliverables. Similar to juggling many balls at once and the trick is not to drop one, two, or more. Get advice from experts on managing expectations - the key to success is not always known - but the key to failure is certainly trying to please everyone.

Questions Kathy will ask speakers:
- What are some of the most difficult expectations you have had to deal with and how have you dealt with them?
- Do you have any time management strategies you can pass along? How can you effectively prioritize to meet demands?
- Can or should a plan-B be offered when a deliverable is impossible ?
- What advice would you give to someone about managing expectations?
