Communication is the building block of business relationships. The communication can range from face-to-face meetings, conference calls, emails and presentations. In all such scenarios it is vital for the Project Manager to get his/her message across to the audience.

A September webinar by Roberta Fernandez with the AtKisson Group covered the basic concepts of the Compass framework and ISIS Method (the 'what'). This followup webinar will address the 'who and when' in determining how to use them. These tools can result in better understanding, clearer decisions, a stronger consensus, more well-developed plans, more effective strategies and implementation programs, better measures of progress, and thus, a great deal of real and specific change to make our world more sustainable. ISIS and Compass are not the tools that PLAN or implement the project, but that bring the sustainability conversation front and center in the project’s beginning.
Leaders become great leaders by their ability to connect with and empower others. The startling truth is that more than a quarter of employees are at high-risk of turnover. What’s worse is that one-third of those at high risk for turnover are talented, motivated employees who exceed performance expectations. Your top crew!
The webinar is centered around Ethics, the PMI code of ethics and the roles and responsibilities that the practitioners, project & program managers need to understand and appreciate when engaging in the domain of international development
The identifiable and relative complexity of the project or task affects the risk assessment also. This often nebulous quantity can be measured with some degree of accuracy within a single corporate environment. The speaker has developed a theory, a mind-map representing that theory and coded an analysis tool that adjusts to the user’s environment. Part one of the webinar will be a discussion of this model, part two will be a demonstration of the off-line, but operational project complexity model.
This moderated panel-style webinar will discuss how we can optimize our innovation processes, in our organizations and more importantly in our heads. Innovation is a choice, or rather a series of choices we make in every moment of our lives: how we choose to learn and imagine and take risks and gain insights, how willing we are to systematically update our own thinking. Moderators will also share insights so that attendees come away with information about how to apply their own unique innovation challenges, and how we will lead others to be their own best innovators.
Change and conflict go hand-in-hand. We need to understand and embrace how change can create conflict and how, as leaders, we need to address and manage that conflict. This webinar will provide you with ideas that will help you embrace the positive conflict that drives change and build your willingness to engage and manage conflict. The webinar touches the following concepts: the change process, pain vs. gain, change threshold, the change curve and strategies for managing conflict.
How much time do we waste thinking about, avoiding or worrying about conflict and what does that do to your work environment? Conflict does not generally go away unless you actively manage it. In the webinar, we will explore how to have productive conversations and provide you with a framework where you can be successful in winning a resolution.
Agile teams are all about high bandwidth, cross-functional communication. But, we can get really jumpy about conflict. Creative conflict is where the good stuff is in product development and innovation. Come learn about how effective conflict engagement deepens consciousness and what we mean when we talk about consciousness and software development. Jean’s style is dialogic, so expect to interact!
Re-invigorating the body of knowledge and searching for a step change improvement in construction labor productivity, CII kicked off the Construction Productivity Research Program in 2007 with Research Team (RT) 252. The primary objectives of the program were to identify and validate one or more initiatives, techniques, or methods that, if implemented, would result in a breakthrough improvement in construction productivity. Construction productivity was defined in three components: 1) direct work rate, 2) labor productivity, and 3) rework rate. The team was structured in five phases over a six year period with specific phases dedicated to the mechanical, electrical, concrete, and steel trades. This webinar will introduce the outcomes of each phase of the program as well as present the master deliverables in the “Construction Productivity Handbook” and the “Best Productivity Practices Implementation Index (BPPII)”.
