Requirements are a key driver for any project and there is a direct relationship between the accuracy of requirements and the outcome of a project. In many cases there is a direct link between scope and requirements, hence requirement definition impacts project scope. Every project benefits by having a well-defined project scope that helps define boundaries for the project, the primary outcome/goal/deliverable to be achieved and success metrics (what does "done" look like") We'll discuss how Design Sprint methods can be used to help project managers and teams at-large ensure alignment between current problem/challenge, scope of work and requirements for the project overall.

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.
Every project is subject to constraints. This webinar will consider the constraints faced by one government agency, how they are generalizable to all government projects, the constraints imposed by government, and possible approaches to overcoming these constraints. If you work in government, or have an interest in government (surely everybody does!), this is the webinar for you.
Project managers need to balance people, teams, process, product, and a host of other things. The people/team part of the equation (especially the team part) often falls through the cracks - it’s harder to quantify, and the guideposts are few and far between. Getting a team working well together can be like herding cats - just when you think you’ve got them all going the same direction, another one wanders off. Social intelligence (a kind of sideways look at emotional intelligence) can help us herd those cats effectively, keeping the project as well as the team together. It gives us some clues to understanding and managing the connections between people, most particularly those we work with on a regular basis.

Rescheduled: Strategies for Developing the Most Sought-After Leadership Qualities: Developing Effective Leadership Habits
This is in the eighth installment in an 8-part webinar series, Strategies for Developing the Most Sought-After Leadership Qualities, presented by Uri Galimidi. This series focuses on eight critical leadership skills that will help Project Managers become more accomplished professionals. The webinars are informed by the latest in the science of leadership and include practical strategies and approaches to build the skills and behaviors covered by each webinar. Professor Laurie Santos of Yale University says that knowledge is less than 50% of our transformation journey to become better leaders. Building leadership skills and qualities requires deliberate practice over a sustained period of time. In this webinar, we will discuss the neuro-science of habits and how we can use this knowledge to develop sustainable effective leadership habits that will serve us for the rest of our careers.
In an agile world, team members are empowered to make important decisions within the context of the behavioral architecture, without having to ask permission from supervisors or managers. But these supervisors and managers are coming from a lifetime of learning how to succeed in a hierarchical world, so they will need to leave behind those ingrained lessons. In order for agile to be successful at scale, leaders will need to change.
