Dear Luis,

To me the best presentation was "Mastering the Art of Humanness in Project Management: Serving Others Through Powerful Communications" from Dana Lynn Bernstein. As i already had the opportunity of express here in this forum communication is the base of project management, build relationships, care with others, build empathy and yet for many of us the skill more difficult of training. So is never to much to discover or learn with others strategies to overcome these obstacles.

I agree was a very relevant presentation and delivered very well
I think that the presentation from Antonio Nieto-Rodriguez, The Project Economy - Why Projects Are the Future was the best. And these are my reasons:

1. The data about the projects, operations and project management was very compelling.
2. The report that says that 80% percent of today's project management task will be eliminated by 2030 because of AI, was also very shocking - I didn't know it.
3. The project canvas is an interesting tool, didn't know it neither.
4. The project manifesto is interesting too. I'll have to cross-check with the project principles in PMBOK 7th draft.
5. The look of other triple constraints has a lot to be explored.

The other conference that I really liked was the Using the Disciplined Agile Toolkit to Choose Your WoW by Mark Lines.

The keynote speaker Cara Brookins was really good. I just finished watching that as I missed the opening of the XPO.

It showcased project management without any of the fancy acronyms, processes, or anything PMBOK related. Her story is powerful and motivating.

I also enjoyed The Project Economy presentation. I finally understand what is meant by that term. I have the handouts downloaded and need to review the Project Manifesto more.

While Cara's presentation was certainly inspiring, there was a definite willing suspension of disbelief to enjoy it. As I joked with one of my virtual colleagues yesterday on a Zoom coffee chat, in some places, using your pre-teen to work ridiculous hours on a professional construction job might be considered child endangerment and child services might have got involved.

Kiron,

In theory the presentation is inspirational, but for the majority of the Europeans that accomplish is just a manifestation of the american dream, we can, do it your self, we know that the american dream is possible but for a few lucky ones.
As you imagine to make an house in Europe we need the permits of the city, and those permits are only provided if the drawing plans
(like architectural design or the building construction or the electrical plan etc.. are signed by authorized experts in construction and supervised by them like an architect, civil engineer, electrical engineer.

The only way to squeeze out meaning of the presentation is to focus on the history of will, preservation and effort.

Even today I find myself thinking about the subject and how the children's work can be related to the theme called unstoppable team, first they are children, second they are part of the same family, are very different characteristics from common teams.

Dear Kiron
Thank you for sharing your opinion with us

In Portugal the exploitation of child labor is a crime :-)

What about the lesson learned from this situation for team management?

We have very similar opinions :-)

For me storytelling has a pedagogical purpose ...
Or can the lessons be taken for absurdity? :-)

Even though this was not a "team" in the sense we normally think, they did exhibit a number of the characteristics we would look for including:

1. Everyone having a voice
2. Ego-less contribution
3. Shared goals and tying of individual purpose to team purpose
4. A (very) challenging and compelling vision
