Project Organizing for Tackling Grand Challenges in Emergent Markets

presentation
by Nuno Gil

Lessons from Brazil’s Social Housing Movement This webinar will illuminate novel forms of project organizing to tackle grand challenges in emergent economies. So ,shed light on novel forms of project organizing to tackle socio-economic problems that are so complex, uncertain, and difficult to resolve that they can often seem intractable, with an emphasis on developing countries. Drawing from extensive fieldwork on the emergence of participatory social movement organizations that nest self-governing project teams to tackle the housing crisis in São Paulo, Brazil, Nuno will share how organizations can harness the power of self-managed projects to unleash cooperation, creativity, and adaptability without compromising internal organizational cohesiveness. A key insight Nuno will share is how to create a virtuous architecture of participation: one where by leveraging managerial control to build order inside the self-managed project teams, the organization builds capacity for the projects to contribute to spontaneous self-organizing activities, the result of which increases the beneficial effect of self-governing projects. Nuno will discuss implications to private and public-sector organizations which are willing to consider establishing autonomous project teams in the pursuit of solutions for grand challenges.

The knowledge within an organization is critical to its success, including how it runs successful projects. Yet many organizations struggle to manage, store and transfer knowledge effectively. Ed Hoffman and Larry Prusak have been studying and practicing knowledge management since the field first emerged in the early 1990s. In this Podcast Club, they will share their perspectives on how knowledge management started, how it has evolved, and where it is heading as we move into the future. How will it affect – and by affected by – the future of work?

Helping Project Managers Develop Ability in Managing Uncertainties and Ambiguities in Their Projects

presentation
by Anna Wiewiora, Peter O'Connor

Project managers are regularly confronted with complex and ambiguous situations in their projects. Ambiguities in projects impact decision making, evoke negative emotions such as stress or anxiety and can have long-term consequences on job satisfaction and burnout. The webinar will present findings from three interrelated studies on managing ambiguities in projects. We will present a catalog of ambiguous situations in projects, including types of ambiguities and specific examples of ambiguities in projects. We will outline and discuss individual, organizational, and situational conditions affecting tolerance of ambiguity, and provide a range of recommendations and strategies for managing ambiguities in projects. Findings from these studies were drawn from the established literature on ambiguities and uncertainties in projects, data from interviews with experienced project managers, and a longitudinal survey with 275 project managers.

Climate Change and the Evolution of the Project Management Profession

presentation
by Efrosyni Konstantinou, Jenny McArthur, Rob Leslie-Carter, Vedran Zerjav

One of the most significant questions for the future of the project management profession will be our position in relation to huge, complex, and overwhelming environmental and societal problems that cannot be resolved by any organization, government and individual alone. Those problems are often referred to as Grand Challenges. The climate crisis is a prime example of a Grand Challenge with an increasing urgency that needs to be addressed if societies around the world are to survive and prosper. Up to now, project management as a profession has been key for ‘getting things done’, and as such is likely to be a key part of the solution for climate change and other such Grand Challenges.

Ask Us Anything - DE&I at PMI: From Foundation to Integration

presentation
by Megan Speight

In this installment of the Discover PMI – Ask Us Anything Series, we aim to put diversity, equity, and inclusion in the center of what we do. Because we are a global community, by nature, PMI, is diverse. Our community is made up of individuals from all walks of life, and varying industries, backgrounds, and regional locations. Something we don’t take for granted. While we have for a long time honored our diverse community, PMI’s intentional work in this space started with discussions by the board at the end of 2019 asking what more can we do to honor our community? In 2020 we formally gathered an internal Core Team that laid the foundation for this program. Throughout the course of the last two years we have set a strong foundation for PMI’s presence and journey in this space. That foundation is solid and we are moving to integrate this work into all parts of the organization. Learn more about DE&I at PMI and how you can make an impact as we work towards an equitable future.

The Effect of IT Project Managers’ Mental Construal on IT Project Risk Management Activities

presentation
by Angel Hernandez

Prior research suggests that information technology (IT) project managers (PMs) often fail to take adequate steps to manage project risks and that this may contribute to the high failure rate associated with IT projects. In this presentation, I will discuss PMI-funded research that explores how IT PMs’ mental construal affects four key IT project risk management activities: (1) risk identification, (2) risk impact assessment, (3) risk response planning, and (4) risk response enactment. This research contributes to our understanding of IT project risk management and suggests ways for improving IT project risk management practices

Center Stage Podcast Club: The Global Future of Talent

presentation
by Jill Diffendal, Tammy Ashraf, PMI-ACP, Matthew Kohut, Ronit Avni, Cali Yost

Disruption is affecting so many aspects of how organizations operate, including how they hire and manage people. Technology, especially during the pandemic, has accelerated new ways of working that enable organizations to broaden their talent searches, while giving educated workers opportunities regardless of their geography, and offering employees flexibility to better balance work and life demands. At the same time, organizations as well as consumers are placing more value on diversity, equity and inclusion, spurring changes to both policies and workplace cultures.
