Improving a Project Manager's Well-Being

Jul 1, 2019 1:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

The profession of project management can be stressful and to perform at their very best (and increase the chances of project success) a project manager must ensure that they are looking after their own wellbeing. This presentation will give attendees practical skills and exercises they can use to increase their levels of wellbeing and authentic happiness.

Improving Project Flow Through Careful Dam Placement

Apr 4, 2022 1:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

The goal of our project execution engine is to deliver value to the organization. But we often don’t manage them that way. We have learned in our factories to balance the capacity of the various steps in our processes and to limit the flow of jobs into the system. We see the inventory build-up and risk becoming obsolete before it can be consumed. Why, then, do we treat our projects differently? In this session we will talk about ways to meter the input to the project execution system to maximize the value of our output and dramatically reduce value lost to work that goes stale. The core of the system is having a list of prioritized projects ready to execute and pulling when there is capacity to start another one. In an ideal world this will mean that we never need to trade priorities of the running projects - we’ve only put as many into the system as we can execute efficiently in parallel. But the world isn’t ideal and there will still be conflicts between the running projects - though many fewer than before. When conflicts occur, we often prioritize ineffectually. We’ll talk about principles that can lead us to wiser decisions when choosing when and whether to give a project with a problem a boost.

Improving Project Performance Through Assessments

Jul 29, 2015 1:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

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

In the Digital Fray, Don’t Just Converse. Collaborate Inclusively.

Jul 27, 2020 5:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
webinar

With the move online, we could just begrudgingly endure the meetings and emails. Or, we could build trust, inspire team cohesion, and drive astonishing impact. When we move from in-person work to virtual (or hybrid) work, our communication frequency, structure, participation, and even content change. We risk wasting time in misunderstanding, false-agreement or rework. The Four Discussion Disciplines (4DDs - integrity, courtesy, inclusion and translation) are practices teams can use on email, in meetings, or in posts to address this. In this session, Katrina Pugh (Columbia University, New York, NY) and Chivonne Algeo (Monash University, Melbourne, Australia) will discuss how to lead the 4DDs with your teams, across your organization, and with partners to improve meaning-making and relationship-building.

INAUGURAL CENTER STAGE PODCAST CLUB EXPLORES PROJECTS DISRUPTED: INNOVATION=KNOWLEDGE+UNLEARNING

Oct 28, 2020 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
webinar

Join three of our Center Stage podcast guests for a provocative dialogue on how knowledge coupled with unlearning enable innovation. Guest Larry Prusak highlighted the true competitive edge of knowledge, “When you have a project team, it matters far less what an individual knows. It matters greatly what the team knows.” Does this threaten the value of a project manager? Both Larry and guest Barry O’Reilly caution against knowledge becoming stale. Larry says, “Refresh the knowledge you have. Always be open. Always be learning.” But Barry believes you may have to throw some of what you know in the trash: "It’s…the inability to unlearn existing mindsets and behaviors that were effective in the past but now are maybe limiting your success." What does this mean for adhering to methodologies when faced with uncertain requirements, divergent stakeholders and evolving delivery methods? As Peter Temes points out, there is often a tension between managing for efficiency and managing for discovery. Does managing for efficiency hold you back from finding innovative ways of working?

Increase Knowledge Retention through Agile Techniques

Sep 28, 2020 1:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

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.

Increase Speed and Effectiveness of Digital Transformation Teams

Feb 9, 2022 2:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Influence and Lateral Leadership Across Cultures

Jun 3, 2015 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

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.

Innovation - Art of Science Learning

Mar 3, 2016 1:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

This webinar follows the research conducted by Harvey Seifter and his team and speaks to the benefit of having creativity and innovation infused into STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). This method of learning which utilizes the arts shows tremendous gains. The research displays the process of using innovative visual displays of information for creating visual roadmaps. Participants will see how arts based learning can increase collaborative behavior and innovation which makes for healthier projects.

Innovation Narratives and Leadership

Jul 5, 2022 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
webinar

Managers construct narratives of innovation and ascribe themselves with informal roles such as leaders and champions of innovation (Sergeeva, 2016; Sergeeva and Green, 2019; Sergeeva and Liu, 2019). They are expected to create and communicate innovation narratives for both internal employees and stakeholders. The presentation discusses the crucial role of innovation leaders in stimulating and promoting innovations in projects and organizations. The processes of narrating and leading are connected and are important processes in project organizing. These processes are increasingly recognized as essential for successful delivery of projects/megaprojects that impact policy-making, strategizing, the economy and society as a whole. In this webinar, you will learn about Innovation narratives and leadership, and processes of leading and narrating. Key definitions and examples will be discussed. The presentation is based on longitudinal research studies in innovation and project management research.
