Senior Leaders’ Expectations on Project Management - New Insights from Harvard Business

Aug 30, 2021 10:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

As the number of projects in organizations skyrocket, understanding project fundamentals and fostering project management skills have become essential. Leaders have too many projects with too little visibility into them, and they lack the project oversight and delivery competencies to untangle them. In a recent survey with Harvard Business Review, we wanted to look at the current challenges faced by senior leaders when dealing with projects and project management, as well as their expectations for the future. The results, combined with other case studies, will help us better understand how organizations are using projects now, where they are finding success with projects, and where they are struggling. The session will help project managers translate their hands-on know-how up to the leader’s-eye view.

The COVID-19 pandemic forced many teams to start working remotely. Even for those who are used to working in virtual environments, the events of 2020 have accelerated the intensity and changed the pace. The pandemic has changed how remote working is perceived, and has most likely changed forever, how virtual teams interact. With the importance of emotional intelligence (EQ) in leading project teams, it becomes more important while working remotely. Team members may feel isolated and this may contribute to reduced productivity. The leader may also feel the loss of control and could suffer from emotional disconnect. But these situations can be managed effectively. This webinar outlines basic the steps that you can take as a leader of project teams, to ensure that your teams remain engaged and highly productive.

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: My boss just asked me to head a project to change our product to be more environmentally friendly with regards to carbon emissions, but I don’t think he has thought it through.
