    Project HEADWAY: Rethinking PM Education
    Aug 23, 2018 3:00:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
    Presenter: Mark Mullaly
    For all that we know about education, and all of the training providers that exist, the training landscape for project managers is surprisingly uniform. There are introductory courses. There are certification programs. There is the school of hard knocks. And there is… not a whole lot else. But if we’re serious about project management gaining traction, we need to develop beyond the basics. This presentation explores what it takes to develop the whole project manager.

    Change Management using The Living Organization Approach
    Sep 5, 2018 2:00:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
    Presenter: Vitaly Geyman
    In today’s Volatile Unpredictable Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) environment, leaders that want to deliver extraordinary results, require a fundamentally different approach to change management.

    What Is Wrong with Benefits Realization?
    Sep 13, 2018 3:00:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
    Presenter: Dmitry Ilenkov
    Too often we think of project management in the context of "doing projects right", but it does not really work. We have to do the right projects first and make sure the desired outcomes do contribute to the company strategy realization. Benefits realization management (BRM) can be a good solution to align project management with company strategy. There are some common mistakes, which companies make in BRM, and some action points to avoid them and improve the situation.

    Intrinsic Motivation: Team Mastery for Managers
    Sep 18, 2018 3:00:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
    Presenters: David Kachoui, Kimberly Johnson
    Much research and many popular books have been directed toward understanding the pursuit and achievement of mastery. A common understanding has emerged that mastery is more directly dependent upon the amount of time devoted toward deliberate practice. In mature skill areas, mastery can require 10,000 hours or more of deliberate practice. An organization or team filled with members who are committed toward achieving mastery is both desirable and elusive regardless of the industry or field. The key to achievement of mastery on an organizational or team level is individual motivation. Historically, most motivational research and advice has focused on extrinsic motivation. Recently, research has focused more and more on the power of intrinsic motivation. Intrinsically motivating teams can seem complicated and even contradictory. However, understanding the practical sources of intrinsic motivation can help managers apply the principles to real-world situations and increase their team’s drive to achieve mastery.
