Keynotes on Leadership, Organization Change, and Running Projects Successfully
Keynotes inspire and educate. They set a theme or tone for your event. We work hard with event organizers to tailor our keynotes to engage and enliven your audience. Keynotes can be matched with track sessions or workshops to fill out an event or drive a corporate agenda. Since it is impossible to describe all the combinations and customizations for a presentation, please do not hesitate to reach out and we can help you get the perfect combination for your event.
Many organizations have only one methodology for running projects. However, nearly all organizations perform a variety of projects—deploying hardware, developing new products, changing internal processes, and running custom projects for customers. Some methodologies are much better for specific styles of projects. Therefore, organizations need a portfolio of processes that matches their portfolio of projects and their culture. Phasing, critical chain, agile all have valuable attributes that can be applied in specific areas.
The fate of a project is often sealed long before the first person is assigned or charters, contracts, or SOWs are written. Experience with auditing dozens of projects and doing root cause analysis projects has shown that corporate decisions, not project decisions, have a very larger effect. This presentation, designed for executives, PMO managers, and senior project managers, focuses on a number of techniques learned while recovering projects that greatly improve the chances for success. It introduces the concept of guidance teams that get involved with the project at the customer inception stage and follows the project and team through to its completion.
