Bridge To Tomorrow: Five Competences Driving Project Management Success

CCRS Category: Strategic

Overview:  This presentation is a journey through the competencies that project managers have leveraged in decades past, and what is needed to move forward. We live in a time of unprecedented change, and project and program managers need new skills, new vocabulary and better tools for operating in an automated world. Tim will present five competencies driving change in project management. In this engaging talk, Tim will explore the nature of individual competence and project success. Does one drive the other, and how do we mentor, train, hire and evolve higher functioning project managers? Tim is on a quest to redefine project management for a new age, and this talk may even challenge your core assumptions about project management!
