Risk Champions – The Role of Project Managers in Building Strong Organizational Risk Management Cultures
Many organizations focus on governance as an important part of organizational risk management, and rightly so. But, a common mistake that is made is that organizations depend on risk management policies and procedures to control risks. Policies and procedures do not manage risks. People manage risks. Many project managers have to operate in an environment where risks are not understood and where reporting of risks to executive management is seen as an admission of impending project failure. How can project managers influence managers and stakeholders to become risk management champions? This webinar will discuss some key elements to building a strong organizational risk management culture and focuses on the role of project managers in influencing this cultural change.
If you work in a multi-project environment as a product developer, engineer, or R&D expert, then the notion of multi-teaming is probably familiar. Most likely, you have key people assigned to multiple projects at the same time. Planning and managing these resources efficiently is almost impossible. Key resources themselves are challenged with fragmented work, time pressure, lack of focus, ambiguity, a constantly changing environment and, above all, dissatisfied project managers. These skill groups serve several projects in a non-dedicated way. They switch from project to project based on demand. They’re between a rock and a hard place. In this webinar, Jan Willem will show you how resources should be managed in order to make multi-project environments successful. *The mobile experience for this live webinar is not currently supported.

Shaping your Intercultural Project Leadership: How to Leverage Cross-Cultural Challenges in your Project
Intercultural gaps threaten many projects. National cultures, job cultures, enterprise cultures, generational cultures: any gap in those components can lead projects to face culture clashes…and additional problems. Yet, project managers can not only actively manage those gaps, but also leverage them and thus extend leadership skills. This webinar will highlight which levers project managers can use to identify and proactively manage intercultural factors within the project, and suggest practical ways to develop an intercultural leadership style which can be effective both at personal and team level.
