Session Abstract
What would you do if you had one year to complete the largest project of your life? Where would you begin? What questions would you ask? What resources would you rely on? What processes and procedures would you want to use to ensure that your project was successful?

Now ask: What if you treated the next year of your life as a project?

A few years ago I was at the lowest point in my life: deep in debt, just out of a divorce, and a single dad. My business was failing – along with the economy – and I didn’t know how I’d ever recover from my self-created mess.

I needed something, anything, to back away from the edge and get my life moving in a new direction. I believed that all I had was project management. I held that assumption because I’d written five books on project management, delivered project management seminars for over a decade, and consulted for organizations across the globe.

So I asked: What if you treat the next year of your life as a project? It was a challenge to press on, an opportunity to learn and to grow, and a commitment to try just one more time.

I’m not a psychologist, a Zen guru, or some New Age zealot. I’m a man that’s learned and applied some universal truths to get what I want into and out of my life. If I can do it, you can too. Let me show you how.

In this hands-on course you will learn how you can treat your life as a project. You’ll create requirements, project plans, discover immediate actions to execute, identify the constraints that are anchoring your ambitions, and much, much more.

Discover the 7 Steps of Intrinsic Motivation
What would it mean to your stakeholders, project, and career if you could consistently get 40% more productivity and commitment from your team members? Do you think that it’s possible? Studies by Dr. Robert Hartman have shown that workers (team members,
clients, stakeholders, etc.) withhold, on average, 40% of their capacity. He also discovered how to release that 40% latent reserve through “intrinsic validation”.

If you could release that 40% latent reserve…
• How much more successful would your projects be if your team members gave you 40% more than they are currently?
• Do you think your quality and performance would increase?
• Would your team’s communication and cooperation be enhanced?

In this presentation, you will learn why extrinsic motivation may not work in the 21st century and how you can use the principles of R.E.S.P.E.C.T. to lead
better.

You will discover:
• The 3 Dimensions of Value
• How value generation is the key to all success
• 7 Steps to Intrinsically Motivating people
• The important truth to getting 40% more

**This session will be worth 1 Strategic PDU (Category B, self-report) until 11/29/2020!**

Many organizations are faced with project execution and experience high cost overruns and challenges to deliver the anticipated value. In working with many clients and reading study after study a root cause points to requirement issues. It could be missing requirements, too many requirements, conflicting requirements, or multiple interpretations of the same requirement.

In the end this challenge and struggle relates to how organizations are making and communicating decisions before, during and after projects. Decisions need to be made with the right information available at the right time.

In this session, Kupe will be discussing Decision Making. One of your main responsibilities is to help others make better decisions, and to make decisions yourself. If decisions are not made during a project nothing can get accomplished. Easier said than done right? Making a decision, especially when there isn’t consensus can be interesting to say the least. However, there are tools that can be used to help facilitate decision making – tools that will lead you and the team to the right decision. After this session, you will look at your role in a whole new light.

Session Objectives
• The Importance of Decision Making to increase the success of projects
• When you need to make decisions and the tools to help make them
• How you help others make decisions

“If you want something done ask a busy person to do it.” That’s a favorite chestnut when it comes to time management. As project managers, we are busy people: constant demands from stakeholders, team and client meetings, reports to create, and analysis of what’s happening in the project. Project managers know that it’s all about getting things done; there’s no value in reports, meetings, and emails if they don’t create results.
In this presentation, Joseph Phillips will share some proven time management techniques to get more done in less time. We’ll explore some tools that you can take back and apply immediately to your work. Invest one hour in this session, utilize the tools, and then reap the rewards.

Schedule your time now to attend this fantastic presentation.

Session Abstract:

Change management is nothing new to the project manager. A process for change is a standard requirement for any project large or small and having a process in place helps to manage through the many challenges of change including resistance from stakeholders. The project change process is similar to the processes of organizational change. The process must be well thought out and the effect of change anticipated. The impact of major changes within an organization can be substantial and in many cases, destructive, requiring the leaders to carefully develop their strategies for change. The main focus of that strategy is to create a change ready organization where the team members and employees understand why change is necessary, how it can affect the future, and why it is important to support and embrace change. This presentation addresses the effect of change within an organization and offers suggestions about how to plan for change, how to involve the entire organization, and how to minimize the fear and anxiety generally associated with change

Session Abstract

Change management is nothing new to the project manager A process for change is a standard requirement for any project large or small and having a process in place helps to manage through the many challenges of change including resistance from stakeholders The project change process is similar to the processes of organizational change The process must be well thought out and the effect of change anticipated The impact of major changes within an organization can be substantial and in many cases destructive requiring the leaders to carefully develop their strategies for change The main focus of that strategy is to create a change ready organization where the team members and employees understand why change is necessary how it can affect the future and why it is important to support and embrace change This presentation addresses the effect of change within an organization and offers suggestions about how to plan for change how to involve the entire organization and how to minimize the fear and anxiety generally associated with change

Session Abstract:
In risk, it's not just about the tools. It's about how you deploy them. It's about how you bring others into the risk conversation. And it's about how you affirm that you know what you're doing and where you're taking your project. In this session, Carl will drive home the power of clarity and metaphors in taking the risk management story to the next level, and he’ll talk about the importance of language, and how to craft risk terminology that's meaningful for you, your management and your team. Carl will share how a single clear rule can avoid cataclysmic events and how poorly structured rewards can create more risks than they cure.
