Project Success Trifactor: Transformational Leadership, Organizational Change Management, and Project Management

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

In OCM, the most common mistake is to focus only on transitioning to the new systems or processes and not on the people. People are the single most important factor that drives successful change adoption. Organizations that fail to deliver their strategic initiatives often find the lack of stakeholder involvement and engagement counterproductive. Stakeholders view proposed changes through their beliefs and perceptive filters. During this session, learn the difference between change and transformation and why the latter is preferred. You will also learn about the different leadership and OCM practices to engage in through the project phases and which to avoid. Learn how to move from the abstract to the “why” and then on to the concrete “how” we’re going to change and drive successful project outcomes.

Maximizing Organizational Resilience Under Institutional Complexity in Interorganizational Projects

by Ralf Müller, Linzhuo Wang

The design of governance systems of collaborative relationships should aim for resolving institutional complexity, which further improves organizational resilience for IOPs. By adopting a sequential qualitative-quantitative approach, we conduct research based on empirical evidence to address the issue of resilience of IOPs under institutional complexities. Consequently, this research broadens the perspectives of earlier studies by proposing a shift from focusing on operational conflicts to institutional conflicts and has identified a dynamic stakeholder engagement strategy toward improved resilience. This novel perspective is better aligned with practical reality and provides a comprehensive theoretical framework of governance for improved resilience in the face of institutional complexity.

In a bid to embrace agile trends, organizations are rushing to implement agile practices rather than adopting an agile mindset. In this interactive session, Dr. Helen Uzamere will elucidate the difference between "Being Agile" and implementing agile practices, such as Scrum, XP, Kanban and demonstrate why an agile mindset, not practices, drives successful projects.
