We all have experienced unpleasant or difficult solutions. What differs for an uncomfortable solution is that the experience is isolated and temporary. Toxic and challenging environments are problematic on a sustained basis. The complication is not getting through the next meeting or the next morning, but about making it through the year. And the next. And perhaps the one after that. Successfully doing so draws on a range of skills and abilities. We have to assess what is going on. We have to know what available strategies exist to manage—or at least to cope. We have to weigh the potential benefits with the consequences. Ultimately, we have to choose when to act. Sometimes we also have to decide when not to act. If you’ve been confronted with a difficult and toxic environment—or you fear encountering one in the future—this is a presentation that you won’t want to miss.

The evolution of the web has meant a considerable shift in how tools are developed, how teams work, and how the projects are managed. The days of waterfall are long over, and the stringent rules of Scrum and Kanban don’t necessarily apply either. For a team working in the collaborative web3 space, we needed something new. In this talk, I will explain my approach to managing teams and projects in the web3 universe. I’ll explain how deeply ‘iterative development’ has impacted the teams, but also the planning process. Buckle up!
This webinar is about Open Government and the Adaptive Public sector, and it is hinged on Power Skills on the PMI Triangle. Public sector initiatives can originate from citizens, but if a government is not open there will be no recognition for civic space, and it might be impossible for citizens to have a voice in what the government does. Open government creates the necessary framework for civil society and the public to be able to make input in governance; enabling citizens to hold leaders accountable via open data, while preventing wrongdoings on both sides. This webinar will provide insights into the concept of open government and explain why it is a precondition for advancing an adaptive public sector. Lessons will be drawn from Estonia’s openness-by-design, and some testimonies shared during the recently held Open Government Partnership Summit.
