May 27, 2022 | 60:00 | Views: 2,727 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.49 / 5

There is a missing skill in how project managers approach problems especially in the pharmaceutical industry. Most project managers do one of two things before solving a problem. The first instinct is to review the problem regardless of how it is presented then jump straight into a solution. However, this can lead to solving the wrong problem and only realizing the wrong problem is being solved after it is too late. This leads to restarting the entire problem-solving life cycle or implementing a solution for the sake of “just doing something”.

Scaling Agile beyond software development is a challenge because most popular Agile frameworks are conceived by software developers for software developers. In many cases, ‘scaling’ is done by returning to Lean Six Sigma practices, the very approach that Agile has tried to improve or even replace. Kanban is a Lean Six Sigma practice used with great success in manufacturing for almost 100 years. It is mistakenly considered as part of the Agile ‘umbrella,' and although it can be very successfully used in an Agile environment, it has built-in limitations that can significantly impact the most important Agility value: adapting to change. In this webinar, the presenter will share his practical experience with Kanban in manufacturing and software development projects.

In this installment of the Discover PMI – Ask Us Anything Series, we aim to put youth on the path to success by incorporating project management skills into their daily lives. In 2019 the PMIEF Board of Directors approved a strategic plan which runs through 2027 which narrowed the scope of the PMIEF to enable youth through partnerships with Youth-Serving Nonprofits (YSNPs).

Oftentimes, when employees hear the term "diversity, equity and inclusion," they immediately think it is solely the responsibility of human resources. It's not. As project managers and members of PMI, we strive to be good shepherds of the resources in our care - including the diverse group of people on our teams. To do this, and to realize the greatest benefit for our projects, we need to ensure our teammates feel safe to bring their unique experiences and best self to their work. By incorporating human-centered design /design thinking methodologies into your leadership toolkit, you will be able to lower some structural barriers to success. Through a mix of storytelling, statistics, and practical activities, this webinar will guide you to becoming a more aware team leader so you can move beyond having a diverse team and into having a high - functioning, engaged and inclusive one.

Leadership in projects is dynamic and alternates between actors. This presentation on the award-winning study of leadership reality in projects and its resulting theory of balanced and horizontal leadership outlines project-specific approaches to leadership. These include temporary appointments of horizontal leaders, as well as the dynamic assignment (i.e., the balancing) of leadership authority to the best possible leader in different situations. To that end, it outlines a framework including recently identified types of leadership and their situational contingencies. This includes the five events that make up horizontal leadership in projects. These are nomination of team members, identification of potential leaders, selection and empowerment of leaders, empowered leadership and its governance, as well as leadership transition. Moreover, the presentation addresses the coordination of these events through the socio-cognitive space, and the dynamic assignment of leadership authority to the best possible leader at a time, which is known as balanced leadership.
