Friday Flicks: PW&WCBA speaker Don Mann, Former Member, SEAL Team Six

So... as a Project Manager or Business Analyst, you may face a lot of challenges over the course of a day, but few of those are life-or-death. For Don Mann and other members of the Navy Seals communication, planning and clear goals really are matters of national importance.

In this video, see a quick clip of Don Mann speaking about the aftermath of the mission to take out Osama Bin Laden:

So what can a project manager learn from the Navy SEALs?
When starting a project, make sure the mission is clear and the target well identified.
Teamwork is of the utmost importance and everyone needs to be working together towards the same goal before you start.

Fast Company wrote on the subject as well saying "The Navy SEAL raid on Osama bin Laden's compound was the ultimate lesson in project management."

Mann will be presenting "Inside SEAL Team Six: My Life and Mission with America’s Elite Warriors" at PW&WCBA this September where you will have the opportunity to learn about these topics and more.

As a member of SEAL Team Six for over eight years and a SEAL for over 17 years, Don Mann worked in countless covert operations. Mann is the author of the autobiography Inside SEAL Team Six: My Life and Missions with America’s Elite Warriors. When Osama bin Laden was assassinated, the entire world was fascinated by the men who had completed the seemingly impossible mission that had dogged the U.S. government for over a decade. SEAL Team Six became synonymous with heroism, duty, and justice. Don has been motivating people in all walks of life with his inspiring talks on “Combat Mindset” and “Turning Macro Goals into Micro Goals”.
