Earth Day 2018: End Plastic Pollution. Wear Green and Get a Free Drink!

Registration has been closed, but onsite registration will be available.

About the Presentation:

Have you ever delivered a project that was on time, on budget and met all stated objectives but your business partner or client still wasn’t happy?
Have you had to lead projects that did not meet your organization’s standard for top prioritization, however, these efforts were still regarded as highly valuable and must-haves in order to “future proof” the organization?

This session will help project delivery leaders to better understand that point of critical mass when a business leader needs a key initiative to happen in order to move an operation from one operational state to the next; this insight will enable project and program managers to reach beyond the objectives documented in a project charter and really help business partners to realize their true desired state

During this session, participants will discuss:

  • What business partners and customers truly expect from a Project Manager
  • How the current economic landscape has changed the definition of project success; requiring “more with less” from everyone, including Project and Program Managers
  • How to expand traditional Project Manager skillsets to keep pace with the evolution of the role and growing business customer expectations
  • Key project delivery techniques that will increase project success and establish you as a project delivery expert

The primary objective of this discussion is to provoke Project Managers to broaden their focus beyond the traditional project success (time/cost/scope) and to incorporate stakeholder expectations/project value into their efforts to deepen the likelihood of success and establish professional differentiators from their peers.

Key success themes for the discussion include:

  • “Mind your CTQs”: understanding what’s important to your project’s customer and stakeholders will allow you to be a part of the solution
  • Be an “agent for change” and not a “keeper of the old flame”
  • 5 key components to delivering a successful technical implementation with minimal institutional expertise
  • Career and growth benefits to taking on the complex and new projects
  • Review a real-life Case Study
