Be Better with Better Delegation in Agile

Ever feel overwhelmed...or at least wonder how you're going to get it all done? Almost everyone is a giver of work tasks and a receiver of work tasks. If you live in an agile world, you think more about backlog creation and backlog execution...and not so much "delegation", at least in the typical sense. But even with projects and backlog items, there can be many other work items (or life items) that also need to get done. The delegation, either giving or receiving, is a key component to getting all this work done.

All Member Meeting: Developing a Proven Influence Mindset to Improve Project Delivery

Project managers (PMs) typically have little to no authority or asset ownership beyond the charter, placing a premium on influence-based leadership. But how do PMs develop an influence-based leadership mindset? By exploring how influence works in a similar environment - the military! Military leaders have been achieving do-or-die, risk-laden projects for millennia…through influence! The Influence-based Leadership Mindset was distilled using a 3-round Delphi technique with seven senior military leaders-turned-successful project managers, providing attendees with a mindset proven to increase team performance!

Breakfast Meeting: Project Manager As Change Leader: Engage Project Managers To Improve Change Outcomes!

A recent Gallup study identified 2 of the 3 major reasons organizational projects fail (technical, individual, and stakeholder) are related to people or change factors. Oftentimes, organizations rely solely on the change professional to address these factors. In this engaging hands-on session, we make the case for why project managers need to be personally invested in organizational change in their project efforts.
