Transformation, Digitization, Automation, Commercialization, Initiatives, Services, Solutions, Products – What happened to Projects? And, what happened to Projects Managers who find themselves competing with Scrum Masters, Product Managers, Delivery Managers, Solution Managers, Initiative Managers and other roles that seem to be flavors of the year in today’s dynamic world.
As a Project Manager, do you find yourself being a central coordinator of schedules, tasks, reporting statuses and EVM’s and wondering who is actually managing scope and making timely tough decisions causing your projects to be “red”.
Come join me as I share my experiences and practical techniques on how you can as a PMP be relevant and be in the driver’s seat as you lead projects ranging from technical to transforming business models powered by strong communications and guided by business outcomes versus activities and how you can make your projects that are “red” smelling like roses!
