September 2015 Dinner Meeting

People or Process: Which Has the Greater Effect on Project Success
People or Process, as the name implies, looks directly at the role of people versus process in a project's success or failure. Process is a needed component of any project, but does not obviate the need to work with people. A project manager's ability to not only manage, but lead and inspire is often the dividing line between an initiative's success and failure. Unfortunately, the trend over the last fifteen years has been to focus on process and reduce project management to a checklist of tasks. This has created a culture that diminishes the value of a project manager with people skills.
By the end of this presentation, attendees will understand the importance of balancing people and process, where to focus their efforts, and tips on inspiring people to excel at their jobs.
