The COVID-19 pandemic forced many teams to start working remotely. Even for those who are used to working in virtual environments, the events of 2020 have accelerated the intensity and changed the pace. The pandemic has changed how remote working is perceived, and has most likely changed forever, how virtual teams interact. With the importance of emotional intelligence (EQ) in leading project teams, it becomes more important while working remotely. Team members may feel isolated and this may contribute to reduced productivity. The leader may also feel the loss of control and could suffer from emotional disconnect. But these situations can be managed effectively. This webinar outlines basic the steps that you can take as a leader of project teams, to ensure that your teams remain engaged and highly productive.

On the date of this webinar, it will have been just over a year since the world went over the edge of the COVID-19 cliff—and found our reality ever-changed. Plunged into a disaster that few saw coming (although the threads and warnings were out there), we have struggled to adapt and cope ever since. For project managers, how project work has been coordinated and delivered has been significantly transformed. We have had to innovate on the fly, figuring out strategies to plan, coordinate and engage teams that are not just distant, but facing their own challenges. There have been successes and victories, and there have been challenges and roadblocks. This webinar serves as a much needed review of lessons observed, that hopefully we can all learn from.

Lean-Agile Procurement (LAP) is a new and exciting simple approach for procurement. Imagine sourcing an ERP system in just four weeks by having three competitors cocreate their proposals simultaneously in the same room over two days.
