Project Manager at the Improv

Dec 9, 2019 12:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Get ready to apply Improvisation techniques as a project professional. Regardless of your role: Project Manager, Change Manager, SCRUM Master, Product Owner, Business Analyst, Program Manager, or Subject Matter Expert, you will benefit from Using Applied Improv as a means of establishing Healthy Communication within your teams. This is not Improv in the sense of comedians at a nightclub in Los Angles. This Improv in the sense of getting ideas to solve unknowns and define abstract ideas in concrete deliverables. You know, the stuff we do every day. We often host workshops, requirement elicitation sessions, lessons learned meetings, iteration retrospectives, and project kickoffs. This presentation will help you bring life to those meetings (ceremonies?) Applied Improv is a way of approaching a conversation that helps facilitate a growth mindset, generative thinking, and building a team whose members feel included and heard. Using the principles of Applied Improv, you will learn how to energize your meetings, workshops and requirements elicitation sessions. You will find new ways to interact with your stakeholders to create a growth mindset, increase participation, discuss feedback, and suggest improvements. Just as Improv implies creative thinking, Applied Improv has defined practices to encourage generative thinking.
