February 2018 Book Club Intro: Implementing Positive Organizational Change - A Strategic Project Management Approach
Introduction webinar for the February 2018 Book Club Selection, Implementing Positive Organizational Change: A Strategic Project Management Approach by Gina Abudi
The 80/20 Principle, also known as the Pareto principle, states 80% of your outputs are derived from 20% of your inputs. In other words, the majority of the tasks you get done or products your produce are a result of only a handful of activities. This presentation is designed to give you five rules to make better decisions using this principle. You will start to realize how few decisions are actually important, and when they are essential, default responses are already in place. Also, this process will help you determine what is working (double down) and what is not (change early).

This webinar will focus on developing project teams with the ability to share and collaborate turning ambiguity from a deficit to a vehicle that allows your assignee's to produce added-value deliverables. We start this webinar by describing the current situation in how disjointed teams directly contribute to project failure. The effectiveness of a games model, through use of project-based simulation, is then characterized. The basis of this webinar is then illustrated through a number of situational real-life exercises performed. Lastly, we discuss the expectations of this approach, listing some of the lurking pitfalls of this method.

When we talk about talent management, we often identify the work that organizations take on to develop and ensure availability of the skillsets and capabilities that they need to thrive in the future. That is all well and good in ensuring the organization has the competencies it requires. In this day and age, however, we all need to be responsible for our own talent management. We need to be identifying and building our own talents to ensure we are positioned for the roles we want in order to succeed and thrive. This webinar provides you with the grounding and guidance to manage your own talents, and take charge of your own career.
