Then she will review findings from a large scale study done to compare predictive and agile methodologies. An unexpected and interesting finding is that combining predictive and agile practices into a hybrid approach can produce good outcomes.

Following in the footsteps of a seminal book The Black Swan by Nicholas Nassim Taleb, I will demonstrate key failures of traditional risk management and stakeholder management practices in projects where extreme unknown unknowns are concerned. A special attention would be given to explaining how identification of Black Swans and planning the response for them is different from the traditional techniques we apply with tractable risks (known unknowns). More importantly, I will address the Project Management Principle of „Embrace Adaptability and Resiliency“ in the 7th edition of Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) as the fundamental, if not perfect, remedy to negative impacts of Black Swans that we need to apply for the benefit of the project and its stakeholders.

For decades, leaders and managers have been trained to think and act on upon the assumption that employees and customers are rational beings. Motivational, organisational and structural approaches have been developed on the premise that people know what is good for them and that they behave accordingly. Therefore rewards, bonuses, job promotions as well as punishments have been designed to make sure people understand and achieve goals. However, there is strong scientific evidence that this approach is not just irrelevant but dangerous because it does not accept humans as they are: emotional, irrational and primarily focused on their survival. Management styles need to change and modern leaders have to reconsider their approach. This webinar provides both the evidence for the need to change and directions on how this should happen. Prepare for the holistic brain leader!

Neuroplasticity is the function that the brain has to create new pathways and synapses, allowing us to transform our life, learning new things and navigate through change. Otherwise said, we can reprogram our brain to change our behaviors, our life to overcome our brain basic ‘survival’ function that causes us to resist change. Join us to learn how to reprogram your brain and set yourself up for success!

'Human existence must be a kind of error. It may be said of it: "It is bad today and every day it will get worse, until the worst of all happens."'
