Improving Project Performance Through Assessments Projects Can be Made More Successful by Understanding What is Good and Not Every organization can improve how projects are managed. The question is what components of project management should be improved and specifically, what should change. In any problem solving situation, the root cause of a given condition must be known so that a real solution can be identified and proven assessments can be used to both uncover the root causes and also to form the basis for identification of specific improvement actions. This seminar addresses these topics. A free assessment tool is available and time for Q&A is included. The attendee will learn: • What types of assessments are appropriate for projects and for organizations • How assessments can be used to surface improvement areas and strengths • A process to employ the assessment to allow students to do it right away • How multi-dimensional solutions are defined and implemented Focus Audience: Management, Project Sponsors, HR, Quality Leads and Project Managers Format: Lecture, Examples and Industry Experiences Duration: 50 Minutes + 10 Minutes for Q&A Take-Away: Free Assessment Vehicle and Descriptions of Comprehensive Assessments Speaker: Industry Expert and Seminar Developer
Educators are continually searching for techniques to improve knowledge retention, especially during the pandemic. Research shows that poor knowledge retention exists because teaching typically follows a traditional waterfall approach, which studies show to be ineffective. The “learn and forget” style of rote learning should be discouraged. Employers are frustrated as they find themselves retraining new hires on concepts that should have been learned in schools. Employing agile techniques in pedagogical practices increases knowledge retention. Delivering a course in order of importance, with constant stakeholder collaboration, and adapting the delivery based on feedback increases learning and knowledge retention. Also, educators should use a test-driven development approach with continuous planning and frequent feedback to improve learning and satisfaction.
Modern leaders and managers increasingly recognize the importance of being able to influence people over whom they don’t have formal authority. Because authority is becoming an ambiguous concept, contemporary leaders can no longer simply tell others what to do, particularly when facing common issues such as: - Working across departments in a matrix and flat structure, where authority and responsibility are unclear. - Working across cultures in multi-site or multinational organizations. - Managing projects across national boundaries. - Managing cross-functional and cross-cultural teams located in different countries. - Trying to get ideas accepted upward and across organizations.
