The key distinctions between successful and failed projects have not changed over time, and likely will not change in the future. Advances in tools and technology have largely been a distraction, and only recently are thought leaders in the business world coming around to talk about what’s really important. With all that, though, there remain many projects that fail to deliver as expected.

In this talk, Jim will show how we are slowly making progress (in some circles), and expose some of the shiny objects that have kept us from focusing on what is important over the years.

From this foundation, he will describe the core elements that project leaders and team members alike can focus on, today, to dramatically improve their environment, culture of interaction, and approach to delivering value on projects.

It's summer in BC and we hope you're enjoying the warmer weather. Hope you can join us for the upcoming dinner at the Four Seasons Hotel. We are thrilled to have Casey as our speaker. He will discuss how to build intrinsic motivation within your team and why it's important. This might just be the extra special oomph your team needs!
