A sea change in project management practice and principles is already well underway. The roots go back as far as knowledge created and discovered in the early 20th century, but received a tremendous shot in the arm when the Agile Manifesto and Principles leapt into the world from its crèche in Snowbird, Utah. Commerce changes the world, drives both war and peace, and projects both move the initiatives of commerce forward and actualize them in organizations and in society. Simultaneously over the last 125 years, the populations we deal with have become increasingly well-educated, sophisticated, driven by their curiosity and need for self-expression and at the same time various forms of democracy and people based leadership and governance have evolved within governments large and small. In the late 20th century, the forces of globalization and climate change have increasingly destabilized organizations and markets of all sizes. We live in an era where—as so many times in the past—change is a fact of our daily lives and the rate of change is increasingly. Meanwhile, the world of the mind geometrically expands, informs more complex products and service delivery while interacting with the effects of globalization and climate change in a self-reinforcing loop. We cannot manage—or more accurately—lead projects in the way we have in the past. Attendees at this presentation will learn about: • The context driving changes in project management. • A range of emerging approaches to project management. • The key thing project managers must address as new approaches to project management enter their professional context. • Pointers for learning more and flowing with the changes emerging in the field.

As Digital Transformation efforts sweep across Government and Corporate America, many enterprises are finding that the results of their Digital Transformation efforts are much less than expected. A recent survey of one hundred Digital Transformation efforts internally measured using various criteria reported thirty percent of those efforts were deemed “successful.” Corporations are finding that a key area of difficulty is analyzing the organization and how it needs to function in the digital world. Analyzing an organization today using standard techniques is little more than looking at the organization chart and “looking” for inefficiencies. In fact, the “traditional” organization chart tells us very little about how the organization actually functions. This webinar will present and describe some innovative techniques that can be used in analyzing how organizations need to address organizational transformation to provide successful digital transformations, beyond just technology change. As a group, these techniques are described as part of B. (Business) I. (Information) O. (Organization) Transformation – BIO Transformation.

No one loses weight just by wearing gym clothes or acquiring gym equipment. Likewise, dressing an organization with new technologies and exotic tools is not enough to achieve the expected benefits.
