Developing a Proven Influence Mindset to Improve Project Delivery - Nov 2020

Member Free/ Non-Member $5

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!

Grow Your Skills

It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
