Jun 30, 2022 4:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Although they may appear to be competitors, Agile and Lean Six Sigma have the same objective: supporting the organization’s priorities by achieving customer satisfaction. Lean Six Sigma has a very mature approach to process improvement: DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control). This approach can certainly be used for a successful Agile transformation. The webinar is based on the author's experience using the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC framework for Process Improvement for software development projects with a focus on D (Define).  

Innovation Narratives and Leadership

Jul 5, 2022 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)

Managers construct narratives of innovation and ascribe themselves with informal roles such as leaders and champions of innovation (Sergeeva, 2016; Sergeeva and Green, 2019; Sergeeva and Liu, 2019). They are expected to create and communicate innovation narratives for both internal employees and stakeholders. The presentation discusses the crucial role of innovation leaders in stimulating and promoting innovations in projects and organizations. The processes of narrating and leading are connected and are important processes in project organizing. These processes are increasingly recognized as essential for successful delivery of projects/megaprojects that impact policy-making, strategizing, the economy and society as a whole. In this webinar, you will learn about Innovation narratives and leadership, and processes of leading and narrating. Key definitions and examples will be discussed. The presentation is based on longitudinal research studies in innovation and project management research.
