Project Managing Smart Communities - Understanding the Ecosystem to Show Return on Investment in Private and Public Sector

Strategic and Business Management

How can we show stakeholders the money for their smart cities and communities projects - demonstrating value for your organization and professional practice?  Linking the project scope to the stakeholder ecosystem is one approach that has been provided measurable ROI.  This presentation will provide a PMP based approach to delivering a $1.05 - to - $1.00 return on capital for a citywide project at a $10B budget local government; and to staying on budget and schedule while enhancing the scope of a high pressure smart technology for a $50MM - $100MM value building project.  Participants will receive a framework deliverable with resources and tools to assist in supporting Smart Building/City/Community related projects.  

Chris will be presenting with contributions from a global team, including Adugna Sime, Dalton Oliveira, Surya Dev Prakash, and Ulrich Norbisrath.
