Nurture a Healthy Team, to Ensure a Toxic Free Scene, at the PMO

Don’t we all want to be on projects where you look forward to going to work, solve the day’s problems, enjoy good laughs with colleagues, celebrate events, and then go home with a smile? And repeat over again the next day. Unfortunately for a lot us, we have experienced the total opposite because of shrinking budgets and increasingly aggressive project schedules. We end up dreading going to work, face unsolvable problems, witness once congenial colleagues turn into dysfunctional foes, then go home feeling totally crushed. Our presenter Ron Lee has experienced both of these extremes while working on projects. He looked back on his career and wants to share some of the governance tools and techniques that can be effective on fostering a functional and cohesive project team.

Ron Lee is a Professional Engineer and Senior Project Manager in the Infrastructure Engineering Group at SNC-Lavalin Inc. He is a UBC Civil Engineering graduate and has applied his engineering and project management skills delivering transportation improvement projects for the past 30 years. In 2002, he joined SNC-Lavalin to work on the Owner’s Engineer team of the Sea-to-Sky Highway Improvement Project to enhance the safety and reliability of the highway ahead of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. He has also worked on bid pursuit as well as design-build delivery teams on P3 projects across Western Canada.
