Workplace change has never been at a higher rate or faster pace than now. PMOs, leaders and their teams grapple with multiple disruptions, from mergers and acquisitions to restructuring, pandemics, and digital transformations. In today’s dynamic environment, being successful in change is not about being perfect; it’s about being fast and effective so you can move on to the next task or issue—the speed of execution matters. Adopting one 80/20 action to address common project challenges is the best strategy. It gives you 80 percent of the results in 20 percent of the time. In this upbeat and interactive session, we will discuss how you can apply the 80/20 rule to focus in on one action to navigate the tasks and common situations that Project Managers typically encounter during a transformation project.
Change and conflict go hand-in-hand. We need to understand and embrace how change can create conflict and how, as leaders, we need to address and manage that conflict. This webinar will provide you with ideas that will help you embrace the positive conflict that drives change and build your willingness to engage and manage conflict. The webinar touches the following concepts: the change process, pain vs. gain, change threshold, the change curve and strategies for managing conflict.
In the next five years, the world will see more projects than ever. The reconstruction of the economy, healthcare, social care, and society at large after the devastating global pandemic crisis, will be unprecedented in human history. According to McKinsey, Governments’ have announced $10 trillion in reconstruction funds just in the first two months of the crisis, which is three times more than the response to the 2008–09 financial crisis. These are millions of projects, which will need millions of project managers. However, despite this positive outlook, significant trends will put at stake the project management profession that we have learned to know in the past 40 years. We should consider these signals as an urgent call for profound change in our practices and a much needed in our competencies. A small price to pay compared to the unique opportunity that the project management profession has to lead what I call our new world driven by change.
