Final Summary of PMI EMEA Congress 2019 – my 3 top Lesson’s Learned



My day 2 at #PMIEMEA18 started with the offsite tour to the BER – Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg, originally planned to open in October 2011, the airport has encountered a series of delays and cost overruns. It was amazing to see how a team is pushing boundaries, embracing change to fix a project that is gone so wrong. “Three things that you think can contribute to the success of the project ?” asked one of our congress attendees to Thomas the project manager of the BER – airport project. The answer

  1. Proper planning
  2. Enforce accountability
  3. Have the will to get it done

A walking tour of the BER - Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg an unique learning experience to get the feel of the project at the site. For more insights on the offsite tour to  BER airport read the blog Project Management to the Rescue

Back in Berlin convention center I attended the session “Digital Transformation: Leading Organizations to the Promise Land” by Dan Lefsky, the key to succeed in a digital transformation program is not technology, but to do with culture said Dan. Dan’s tips to a successful digital transformation were

  1. Strong communication
  2. To go digital be digital
  3. Automate, measure and decide

Now that I have some tips to lead successful digital transformation, I wonder how the project teams of the future would look like? They would be tech savvy, would need flexibility and empowerment, value human interactions, global perspective, bite size knowledge and prefer work life balance- says Muhammad A. B. Ilyas, Mohamed Khalifa in their session Reforming Transfer of knowledge on the projects of the future. So how would be the transfer of knowledge be like for project teams of the future

This interactive and innovative session transformed us from transferring knowledge through documentation, presentations to interesting techniques like

  1. Emotional seismograph
  2. Celebrity interview
  3. Project Archeology
  4. Passive Analogy
  5. Healing the wounds

Keeping with the theme with the “projects of the future” I look forward to the closing key note by   Inma Martinez - "Developing Creative Approaches to Artificial Intelligence in the Workplace in the Times of Accelerated Digitalisation" on the final day – Day 3 of the #PMIEMEA18.

Keep watching this space for insights of the final day of #PMIEMEA18, alternately keep following me and my team .@KarthikPMO, @Em_The_PM and myself @priyaPatra for more
