This is taking the entire topic of Stakeholder Engagement into new directions. We are moving beyond defining if the stakeholder is an advocate or an adversary, and trying to understand what is driving their position. Understanding the stakeholder’s organizational, and personal, culture is helping project evaluate the stakeholder perspective. This “Cultural Intelligence” of the project manager can greatly improve the effectiveness of the Change Management aspect of a project.

We stand on the verge of the 20th anniversary of a curious date: one where, for many reasons, the world didn't end. Y2K was a global project of immense proportions, as organizations literally raced against the clock to prevent their information systems from failing as the rest of the world celebrated the dawn of the new millennium. For the most part, they kept going. This webinar takes a retrospective view of the Y2K project, one of the largest coordinated systems efforts that the world has yet seen; it offers an alternative perspective and far more insight into the management underpinnings of how to manage an effort that was complex, diffuse and world-wide. Join Peter de Jager for a look back at a global incident that monopolized the activities of nearly all IT departments through the 1990s. He'll explore what we've learned, what we still have to figure out, and what we are perilously close to once again forgetting.
