Upcoming Webinars

Learning While Doing Projects

Feb 1, 2023 2:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Modern work can be complicated, and economic pressures require businesses to improve continuously.  The need for innovation, distributed teams, and competitive and regulatory pressures drive an organization to improve and learn constantly.  Learning throughout the project is not something that should be the focus of only the Agile approaches, such as scrum.  From experience, it is not motivating for a team to burn their metaphorical hand on the same familiar stove burner.  A team with recurring failures of the same type differs from how to improve morale or grow competencies.  Failures may not be fatal if these are used as opportunities to learn.  Failure is not motivating when nothing new is learned or experienced.  In this webinar, we will discuss learning opportunities, things our project can do to encourage learning, and what things we do that discourage learning and growth.

What motivates Generation Y to work on projects? Young professionals are increasingly looking for a specific work environment characterized by opportunities for learning, meaningfulness and achievement. Projects outcomes offer the kind of work environment that fits the expectations of young professionals quite well. In this session, we share our findings from the research project, The Future of Project Work, and discuss what motivates young professionals to work on projects. Young project professionals are specifically attracted to this work, as projects fulfill their needs for autonomy, learning, purpose and social connections.

Sustainability-Focused Project Leader: Why We Are Uniquely Placed To Deliver the Sustainability Transformation

by Antonio Nieto
December 21, 2022 | 60:04 | Views: 6,844 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.58 / 5

Bringing a sustainable future into our grasp relies upon the successful execution of thousands of well-conceived projects. Project management and project leaders are critical in achieving more sustainable practices. Executives must provide them with more flexibility in managing projects, moving past the traditional “iron triangle” of project management — managing time, budget, and quality. Sustainability cannot be achieved simply through rigid planning and traditional project targets. Project managers must be unleashed to reach these goals innovatively. CEOs should empower a new kind of sustainability-focused project manager to lead organizational transformation. The Project Management Office (PMO) can play an important role when analyzing new project ideas. It should develop new guidelines for sponsors and managers to increase the focus of their projects on such sustainable outcomes and benefits.
