Speaker: Bill Blackburn, Academy Leadership Facilitator, US Navy Commander (retired)

To be effective, Project Managers need to lead through influence, not authority. That is not easy under the best of conditions. 2020 and the COVID 19 pandemic threw us all into a crisis and a world of uncertainty! No one knows when it will end. No one knows what the world will look like then. And no one knows the personal impact/hardships we may have to endure personally for ourselves and/or our families. How do you lead under those circumstances???

This practical, action-oriented presentation/discussion will concentrate on three areas of focus any leader can bring to their day-to-day routines that will better enable them to keep their team(s) engaged, motivated and less stressed.

We will look at how Clear Expectations, Communication and Empathy can enable you and your team to deal more effectively with uncertainty, stress and delivering your desired results.

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion, attendee will be able to:

  1. Participants will learn why leaders need to lead differently when facing a crisis and an environment of uncertainty.
  2. Participants will learn how focusing on setting clear expectations, increased communication and bringing empathy can improve their leadership effectiveness.
  3. Participants will leave with specific actions and strategies that they can immediately implement with their project teams.

Agenda:
6:30 pm – 7:00 pm Networking
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm Speaker Presentation and Q&A
8:00 pm – 8:30 pm Breakout Boxes

4/29/21 Accelerating Value Delivery with the Disciplined Agile (DA) Toolkit

Seminar Description:

What organizations do you admire? Fear? What makes them special? Companies like Amazon, UPS, Netflix, and Spotify differentiate themselves with “lean and mean” IT solution delivery. They typically do not use a canned agile method or framework. Rather, they have figured out ways of working to streamline their business, take advantage of market opportunities, and adapt quicker than their competitors. This is what real business agility means. In this talk, Mark Lines, co-creator of Disciplined Agile shows how the DA toolkit can accelerate your value delivery and free you from “methods prison” while doing so. 

PDU's:  1.5 Technical

5/4/21 - Project Leadership: You Cannot Manage a Project to Success

Webinar

5/4/21 - Project Leadership: You Cannot Manage a Project to Success

You cannot manage a project to success; you must lead a project to success. Over the past 40 years, as project management tools and methodologies have evolved into a proscriptive “discipline,” we have become overly focused on project administration, training and certifying project managers in their ability to report on the easily quantifiable metrics of schedule and cost. Projects are not about things; projects are about people. This presentation describes the critical responsibilities of the project manager in leading the team through vision, motivation, communication, action, focus and tenacity, i.e., leadership. The key question is: how do you acquire/develop project leaders?
