    About the Presentation

    In a perfect world every conversation would be easy, but in reality, some don’t work out the way we’d like them to. Did you ever think, "Why did I say that?" or "I should have said this." In this 45-minute, highly interactive workshop, you will be introduced to strategies to get more out of your interactions with clients, project team members, and other key stakeholders. Using fun improvisational activities and group discussion, you will practice thinking on your feet and quickly getting to the point.

    About the Presentation

     

    When managing a project within your own organization, or a client’s, a project manager may encounter stakeholders with priorities that do not align. For instance, one stakeholder may view a project as a necessary investment, while another may view the project as a waste of time and money. If those priorities are competing, this can have a negative effect on the project’s outcome by causing delays, excessive frustration, or even project failure.

    About the Presentation

     

    When organizations are ready to adopt Agile at the enterprise level, people are resistant to organizational changes and have a fear of change due to loss. The organizational change could not take effect if management ignores people’s fear of change. The workshop uses Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) to help audience recognize signs of fear and understand what caused the fear. In addition, the workshop will practice on how to use both self-actualization and NLP Logical Levels of Change methods to deal with the fear due to changes.

    About the Presentation

     

    The Standish Group has published its annual CHAOS Report on the state of software development since 1994. The Report is often cited as a key metric for the industry's performance and progress and draws much attention.

    Analyzing the long-term trends provides an interesting perspective. On average only 29% of projects “succeed” and 23% “failed”. Over the past two decades, there has been little change in these headline results.
