Does your project team gel well? If not, can you really achieve success? Project success is tough to achieve as complex scope needs to be completed within compressed schedules and tight budgets. Another major challenge is the heterogeneous mix of project teams in terms of Age, Geography, Culture, Ethical outlook, etc. Ignoring cultural differences in teams is a recipe for disaster. Effective Project Leadership demands investing time in deeply understanding cultural factors, clear communication and complete transparency.This engaging webinar will help you understand key challenges, and walk you through a proven, practical six-step approach used across four continents to lead project teams to success.
The purpose of this webinar is to provide practical experiences from using the PMI Ethical Decision Making Framework (EDMF). The webinar begins with the background and genesis for the EDMF, and an overview of the tool and the steps required. Next, the webinar summarizes the research design, collection and analysis process. Participants were asked identify an ethical dilemma, preferably in a business environment, and use the steps in the tool to evaluate the alternatives. Analysis includes what the participants did well, and what they struggled with. In final parts of the webinar, there are recommendations for further use of the tool as a structured mechanism to stop and think before acting in a rash fashion.
