The Questions You Should be Asking Your Project Team

Jun 6, 2017 11:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Project Managers normally use the same questions to understand the current status of their project and tasks assigned. We get so used to asking the same questions that it becomes a habit: What's the status on this? How are we getting on? Perhaps it's time to look at some other questions to assess the health of your project. Are you team members happy? Are they able to do their work without being impeded by others? What are they most looking forward to in delivering this project? During this webinar we'll explore the questions that you should be asking as a Project Manager to determine the real status of the project.

The Future of Project Management: Agile PM is the Forefront of a Larger Change

Jun 7, 2017 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

A sea change in project management practice and principles is already well underway. The roots go back as far as knowledge created and discovered in the early 20th century, but received a tremendous shot in the arm when the Agile Manifesto and Principles leapt into the world from its crèche in Snowbird, Utah. Commerce changes the world, drives both war and peace, and projects both move the initiatives of commerce forward and actualize them in organizations and in society. Simultaneously over the last 125 years, the populations we deal with have become increasingly well-educated, sophisticated, driven by their curiosity and need for self-expression and at the same time various forms of democracy and people based leadership and governance have evolved within governments large and small. In the late 20th century, the forces of globalization and climate change have increasingly destabilized organizations and markets of all sizes. We live in an era where—as so many times in the past—change is a fact of our daily lives and the rate of change is increasingly. Meanwhile, the world of the mind geometrically expands, informs more complex products and service delivery while interacting with the effects of globalization and climate change in a self-reinforcing loop. We cannot manage—or more accurately—lead projects in the way we have in the past. Attendees at this presentation will learn about: • The context driving changes in project management. • A range of emerging approaches to project management. • The key thing project managers must address as new approaches to project management enter their professional context. • Pointers for learning more and flowing with the changes emerging in the field.
