Working on social good projects has always propelled individuals and organizations with the satisfaction of giving back but also created the much necessary positive impact for the society, resulting in community development and growth. The year 2020 has been the darkest in the history, among many adversities that hit mankind, COVID-19 has been the deadliest. The need for creating connections (and retaining the existing ones) has never been that immense before not only to learn how to survive but to transform, to adapt and more importantly keeping a tighter grip on our sanity by helping each other and providing that feeling of togetherness in the wilderness.
This webinar will start with defining the 3Rs of listening: relate, reflect and reshape as a technique for you to gather valuable customer insights. We will use this feedback to introduce the value proposition canvas as a tool to analyze your customers’ pains and gains. Once you understand the customer problem, it is time to identify the product features that will address the problem. In the end, you will be able to build the link between your customer, your product and your project, to better position your organization for a successful delivery.
When you belong to a toxic team, you can almost feel it in the air the moment you step onto your floor. It’s immediately draining. During this webinar, we will walk through our emotions first.

We as Project Managers consider ethics as our guidelines on how to deal in different situations, the new technology comes with big opportunities and challenges at the same time. Algorithms, big data, Artificial intelligence, social media, process automation create ethical dilemmas.

In this presentation, we will present the solution for organizations to make the balance between the efficiency and to deal ethically with the people.

Agile: the silver bullet in the training class that will deliver "twice the scope in half the time" only by a shift in the "mindset" and throwing out centuries of knowledge. The reality is that transformations as disruptive and complex as Agile adoption are neither new nor that different from other enterprise transformations, some even called such changes “revolutions” - like mechanization, automatization and even the last century introduction of a new tool called "computer" in the workplace. Management science, Psychology, Organizational Change Management and Risk Management are just a few of the sciences that studied and found ways to support cultural changes at the enterprise level. This webinar is a reflection on how Agile can use past knowledge and also contribute to the "mindset change" required to survive in a highly competitive and continuously changing economy.
The reality is that change is hard, and good change management is harder. We often describe change management as a process, when in reality is guiding and supporting difficult transitions through painful, messy and awkward emotions. This presentation explores what change management really requires, and how to think about preparing for it effectively.
A project leader of a functional team, in late 2020, may encounter external stakeholders that may negatively affect aspirational guidelines that all PMs must strive to achieve. By nature of this type of organization, a PM has little or no formal power. How does a PM maintain the position of being fair, being factual with stakeholder raising conflict, defending himself/herself in a responsible manner, and respecting those stakeholders bringing negative (perceived or real) risks? In the process groups of initiation and executing, I plan to share also two to three examples from projects in the ASIC supply chain business experienced in the past (good, bad, ugly) in the in the initiation and execution areas.
Business as usual is dead. In this volatile and shifting market landscape, the only constants are change and technology.

Join Mr. Husain as he discusses his perspective to develop a transformation roadmap in the age of disruption.
