Not all projects are created equal. Next to those awesome projects where everything is perfect, including the end product you deliver to the client, there's also the projects you hate and wished you'd never taken on. During this talk, I'll tell you about some of the projects I've been on that were all but perfect and how I handled them, or should've handled them.

To be honest, this was by far the worst talk of the conference. I don't know Stefan, but he seems like a person that knows a lot more about leading or consulting in a project. The repetitive pattern of all the project samples made me feel very uncomfortable.

@Erik: I agree this was not my best performance ever. While the talk consists mostly of stories, I only had about 2 hours notice before doing this talk, so I did not have much time to prepare and get into the right mindset. I missed some of the cues that I had made for myself and talked too fast. I apologize that made you feel uncomfortable.
