24 August – Lausanne #PMI® – The Business Case for Ethical Leadership & Decision Making

24 Juil

In our current times, there’s not a single month, week, or even day without a new case of individuals or organizations disclosed as using the system or worst infringing it for their sole benefit, to the expenses of others.

When infringing the system, the case is pretty clear, when you break the Law, you’ll get punished. If ever caught.

Organizations are facing a constant and growing challenge on most of the markets regarding their ethical practices, societal responsibility, the integration of sustainable development trends and their contribution to the overall welfare.

Millennials are choosing the organizations they will work for (or with in fact) based on their reputation.

Ethics, workplace situations, sustainable development and social responsibility are becoming the cutting-edge Value differentiator in today’s market and having a clear strategy addressing these dimensions is the key success factor which will make the difference between surviving or disappearing. As Simon Sinek says, “People do business with you, not because of What you do, but because of Why you do it.

9 August – Webinar – Burning Bridges #PMI® – Costly Mistakes Arising from Unnecessary Errors

19 Juil

Lessons learned from real life situations to share tips on how professionals can guard against unnecessary mistakes

Professionals working in the field of project management are often exposed to stressful situations and frustrations caused by a wide variety of challenges ranging from unrealistic expectations, stakeholder resistance, or constantly changing priorities. The reactions to these challenges depends greatly on the individual, their experience, and capabilities. One thing that is certain is professionals could employ different techniques in dealing with organizational or team stressors, some positive, and others negative.

Burning bridges results in irreparable damage to relationships and often in hind sight may not be necessary.

Unfortunately, even the most seasoned professionals are sometimes susceptible to committing a major mistake or taking an action that could ultimately be detrimental to the organization. Given that all projects are about relationships, one of the most common causes of mistakes is due to misalignment of relationships. As project, program, and portfolio managers react to these misalignments either fix them or to deal with frustration, there is a major risk that the action could ultimately result in burning bridges in terms of relationships with stakeholders, sponsors, customers, or organization. Burning bridges results in irreparable damage to relationships and often in hind sight may not be necessary.

This webinar lead by Philip Diab explores the concept of burning bridges through a series of scenarios based on fictionalized accounts and stories. The session will draw upon lessons learned from real life situations to share tips on how professionals can guard against unnecessary mistakes leading to burned bridges. We will also discuss potential techniques and actions to be used in avoiding some common mistakes.
