Beyond the Triangle: Delivering Value in an Agile World
Webinars
2019

As project managers evolve their practices – to shorten the sides of the triangle (as agile does) or expand the triangle (to include benefit realization), projects can become a strategic asset for an organization rather than an operational tool. Blaize will develop these concepts using research on hybrid methodologies and benefits realization, showing how a project manager’s influence can extend well beyond go-live.

Effectively Dealing with Workplace Disrespect

Paul Pelletier
Effectively Dealing with Workplace Disrespect
Webinars
2019

Disrespect happens. No matter how we reinforce expectations for workplace respect, every workplace encounters those who become workplace nightmares. If ignored or handled badly, bad behavior can devastate a project, team or organization like a wildfire. If handled early and effectively, relationships and workplace culture will be enriched. This makes disrespect management critical – it takes skill to effectively avoid arguments, clarify misunderstandings, deal with disputes, and repair relationships. Simply put - disrespect requires intervention and direct conversations.

The keynote provides leaders with tools for approaching and resolving disrespect issues before they become full-blown conflicts. Participants will learn how to assess the situation early, maturely and how to change the context of the conversation. The keynote helps leaders use direct conversations to take the initiative to confront the problem. Critical to disrespect management, participants will develop strategies for changing the context of conflicts from negative to positive, from disrespectful to appropriate. Participants will learn how to turn a disagreement into an opportunity to provoke learning and enrich relationships.

Effective Negotiation using the Self-Leadership Model
Webinars
2019

Negotiation is a critical aspect of project management. Whether it is mitigating conflict between project members, persuading major stakeholders to reduce scope creep, convincing them to accept scope changes that have budget implications, or simply getting your team on board for a tight deadline, negotiation is truly everywhere. This 4-step Self-Leadership Model is a proprietary methodology that gets deep into the psychology of any negotiation and shows how you can come out on top. This will be an interactive workshop, where the participants will not only be able to walk out with actionable tools, but also have the opportunity to apply the model to their own negotiation scenarios on the spot.

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

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.

Project Communications and Stakeholder Risks: Gaps in Both Predictive and Agile Development Approaches
Webinars
2019

It’s been repeatedly stated that 80+% of project managers’ time and effort is invested on communications (and Stakeholders) Management, however when it comes to proactively dealing with project risks, some project managers under-estimate, if not totally forget, the criticality of Communications and Stakeholders Management.

This is true for both predictive/Waterfall and agile/iterative development approaches. The former lacks keeping communications alive, while the latter suffers from a robust overall end-to-end action plan.

This results is multiple unknowns/issues happening during the course of a project life cycle which in turn leads the project team into chaos.

In this session, we explore the ways project managers can tackle the risks from communications and stakeholder management at the very beginning stages as well as over the course of project life cycle.
