Overview

Many of us work in specialized industries. That makes us susceptible to tunnel vision, group think, and missing out on best practices from unrelated fields. Tunnel vision is where we are restricted by cognitive biases that negatively affect our decisions. Group think is where a team’s thinking is so alike and uniform it is trapped into making wrong decisions, or fails to see solutions that a more heterogeneous group would find.

We can learn transferable skills by examining project workflows from completely different businesses. That involves hard work called Thinking. The PM Lens is a tool that Project Managers can use to understand the Iron Triangle for their business. This is a powerful tool to use during Project Integration.

Running successful projects is like conducting an orchestra. Symphony conductors have excellent project management and leadership skills. This webinar examines six project management skills Conductors use, and suggests tips to incorporate them into your own skills inventory. The Presenter uses the PM Lens to gain insight to four unrelated businesses:  symphonies, commercial construction, military operations, and air force fighter pilot training.
