Mastering the Art of Project Management. Earn 2 PDUs!*
Projects are managed in a world of certainty. Innovation is managed in a world of uncertainty. However, there are opportunities to combine these to create projects that integrate the uncertainty with the certainty. Well-managed projects are successful because they work within their constraints, meet their stakeholder requirements and utilize their resources effectively. But despite our best efforts, projects always encounter some problems, issues and challenges that challenge us in realizing this level of success. Reserve your seat for our Heavy Weight PM Speaker Series and earn 2 PDUs!* PM FORUM: "Mastering the Art of Project Management" with Michael Stanleigh; CMC, CSP, CSM. This presentation is about knowing when to use new, creative and different approaches throughout the management of your projects to manage these issues, concerns and challenges. Innovation is used to stimulate creative ideas and concepts to improve and/or broaden how you manage your projects. In this presentation you’ll learn how to generate ideas and use various innovative techniques to help motivate and energize project teams. You’ll gain an understanding of how to use innovation to think creatively to overcome project challenges. You’ll leave with the tools, processes and techniques required to begin mastering the Art of Project Management. BIOGRAPHY: Michael Stanleigh has a reputation for helping businesses get to the root cause of their problems and generating effective solutions.
