Upcoming Webinars

Phileas Fogg: The Around the World Project Manager

May 22, 2019 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Phileas Fogg is the protagonist in Jules Verne's novel, "Around the World in 80 Days," and proves that the project management process works in a voyage to beat all other voyages! Listen to how Phileas used the project management processes that we use every day to navigate various (and dangerous) risks in order to get what he thought would be the greatest reward - a successful trip around the world. However, at the end, there is a snag, and it looks like he doesn't make it! The project team seems to have an answer. But, is it good enough? No spoilers here - just good project management work.

The Secrets to Developing a Culture of Candor

May 22, 2019 1:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Virtually everyone agrees that projects benefit significantly when team members and key stakeholders speak up to ask questions, voice concerns (early!), and provide honest feedback. It’s that candid feedback that helps teams arrive at better decisions and sometimes avoid all-out calamity, but the truth is that oftentimes team members (even PMs) don’t feel free to speak up. In most organizations people are hesitant to speak up because they don’t want to make waves, go against the grain, ask “stupid questions”, or be viewed as difficult. Indeed, most organizations don’t have a culture of candor and their projects and project results certainly may suffer as a result. A key challenge that Project Managers and organizational leaders face is how to develop a culture of candor. It’s easy enough to say but hard to do. This presentation shares specific techniques that project managers and team leaders can use to build a culture of candor within the team. We’ll explore best practices that will help leaders not just talk the talk but walk the walk as well with their teams.

The Agile Enterprise is a new type of organization. A collaboration-based environment where some of the ‘command and control’ roles are not only obsolete but also can be a roadblock for the Agile transformation. The natural fear of change combined with protecting privileges or the job itself resulted in labelling as ‘Agile’ roles that are not only not defined in any Agile framework but are also the core components of the “waterfall” approach.

Are you facing increased competition, shortened product life cycles, and rapidly changing customer needs and interests? Welcome to the new reality. In order for teams and organizations to succeed within this new reality, it requires that their leaders and employees become more agile. But, agility is not something organizations can incentivize for coerce. Agility must be unleashed and empowered. This is easier said than done.
