Today’s organizations are looking for tomorrow’s leadership team. As a good project manager the next step in your career could very well take you to this next level: senior leadership. This interactive session will put aside the skills and knowledge you need to have to be a good project manager and focus on what you need to be a great leader.
Over the course of the day we will explore the gaps between our skills, knowledge and professional attributes and those of famous and local leaders. In the process we will be develop our new professional strategic plan. Topics, discussions and exercises will include: strategic planning, Key leadership attributes, leadership styles, how leaders think and work, understanding the business, communicating like a leader, messaging like a leader and more. This workshop earns you 8 PDUs.

When organizations implement Scrum (Agile), they usually experience challenges because Scrum is a framework, not a complete solution. Adding practices from other frameworks, such as PMBOK and CMMI can seem overwhelming.
When teams see Agile as a complete process solution (rather than a process framework), then the missing practices add cost, schedule and quality risks back to the project. Teams moving from Waterfall to Agile don’t eliminate risks, they transfer them. When risks are not assessed or mitigated, they become problematic, even chaotic.
This seminar contrasts CMMI, PMBOK and Scrum, and shows how to treat all three as toolboxes to run a successful project. This workshop earns you 8 PDUs.
Earlybird pricing ends 3/5. Registration closes 3/22.
