We have witnessed the dawn of a new era of advancing technology. In the mid-1990s, fundamental research exploded and placed the foundation for advancement as well as the commercialization of products. That was history and now the creation of another technology race, somewhat like what we experienced during the Internet era, but moving faster and larger in terms of potential $$$ dollars. Quantum technology has created a global race that has resulted in multiple commercial product lines that have already begun to see real-world business application. The forecasted culmination of just three areas of quantum technology could grow by 4 or 5 times by 2025. It sure looks like a sci-fi flick! Gartner projects that by 2023, 20% of organizations will be budgeting from quantum computing projects. Time to get ready.

Mindfulness in Project Management: Harnessing the Power of Awareness for Clarity, Calm, and Cooperation
What does it mean to be ‘Mindful’? How can one apply the practice of Mindfulness to enhance the performance of their project team(s) – and, while we’re at it -- ourselves? Mindfulness is nothing new, but in our age of constant digital bombardment, endless distractions, and paralyzing mind clutter, it’s more important than ever for PMs, leaders, stakeholders, and team members alike to be able to apply Mindfulness – awareness (and acceptance) -- to what we think, feel, and therefore do (or don’t do). In this webinar, participants will be introduced to Mindfulness as an invaluable Wellness concept, as well as a management approach and (daily) practice for enhancing project team performance, individual calm, and the overall wellness of any organization.

This is in the second installment in an 8-part webinar series, A Billion Dollar Project Health Framework, presented by Uri Galimidi. The series covers an advanced yet practical framework which Project Managers can use to assess the health of their projects. The framework consists of eight key project management areas. This webinar covers the Project Leadership Team and will include: · A description of the key risk factors within the project management area · Guidelines for assessing when to raise the “Red Flag” for each risk factor · Guidelines on what to do with the Red Flag once you have it raised · Real-life case stories illustrating the risk factor and its impact on your project.
This webinar explores where these lines blur, how to make sense of them, and how to think about our projects and they can—and should—relate to strategy.
For some of us, the lowly Lessons Learned is one of those ‘have to do’ items in the Project Management artifacts folder. Some of us push it off, forget it, rush it, or minimize it. If used correctly, it becomes the ‘primer’ for your next project. We will see how it will save both time and money. Over time your Lessons Learned will switch from issues to must haves.
Project plans are still being built based on guesswork, and those plans and associated schedules become “locked” as the deadline the project must deliver against and the number of people needed to do the work. As a project manager, you must avoid falling into that trap.
