The Great Escape from the prison camp Stalag Luft III is widely regarded as one of the most audacious and daring escape attempts of the 20th century. But as an event in March 1944, set in dire circumstances, what actually happened? How was the escape planned and executed? How did it get around numerous obstacles in a habitat designed to be escape proof? How was the project tracked? In todays world, business people are grappling with numerous obstacles in planning and executing projects in a climate of rapid changes. What can be learned from this event and put into practice today? This AudioCD recording of a live presentation analyzes how the escape was planned and executed as a project. Everything in Stalag Luft III was set up to prevent escape. The project planning and preparation were hindered every day by new obstacles. The environment was ripe for a project failure. Yet the escape committee (project team) was able to organize itself and remove each obstacle it faced. The escape committee overcame continuous difficulties and ran the project in an agile fashion. Paying attention to how historical projects and emerging technologies of the past solved complex problems of the day provides some very valuable insights into how to solve today's more challenging business problems.
