Topic:  "Lessons Learned from Great Projects in History."

Summary of Event:

Presented as part of the Baldwin Wallace University Center for Innovation and Growth’s Kerzner Lecture Series.

Focusing on International Project Management Day’s 2015 theme of sustainability, speaker Chris Wright will present an impactful presentation designed to illustrate that the fundamental challenges, obstacles, and constraints faced by projects of yesteryear are not much different than what project leaders face today. While technological advances and innovation have changed how project management is employed, many of the lessons learned from these great projects can serve as valuable insight into today’s projects.

Chris will provide insight into several of the greatest endeavors in history, including The Panama Canal project, through the lens of sustainability and modern day project management. Participants will not only gain knowledge of a historical event, but also learn how some of today’s “great” projects are not so great in comparison. Riveting and fascinating alike, this presentation will further promote the importance of integrating key lessons learned in every project.
