Failure to learn from mistakes--and from each other--can cost organizations dearly. Learning and adapting are hallmarks of good project management and of functioning organizations. Making mistakes is not a problem--it's how we learn.

Before you submit your project plan for final approval, you'd better check it over. Learn the steps for cross-checking a project plan.
Establishing a “program approach” allows leadership to control performance across multiple projects to achieve maximum efficiency and ensure alignment to strategic goals. The “Intelligent Project Management” model (iPM) provides a fully integrated approach utilizing smart controls, greater visibility of performance data and ensuring people have the right capabilities to support delivery.
The webinar is the first of two lessons and will provide an overview of an Earned Value Management System (EVMS).
For decades, leaders and managers have been trained to think and act on upon the assumption that employees and customers are rational beings. Motivational, organisational and structural approaches have been developed on the premise that people know what is good for them and that they behave accordingly. Therefore rewards, bonuses, job promotions as well as punishments have been designed to make sure people understand and achieve goals. However, there is strong scientific evidence that this approach is not just irrelevant but dangerous because it does not accept humans as they are: emotional, irrational and primarily focused on their survival. Management styles need to change and modern leaders have to reconsider their approach. This webinar provides both the evidence for the need to change and directions on how this should happen. Prepare for the holistic brain leader!
Communication is the medium through which one articulates vision, strategy, change and feedback.

If they fail to articulate that effectively, it could lead to unintended consequences.
