April 2018 Dinner Meeting

The Future of New: Tools and Techniques for Designing and Leading Complex Change

CCRS Category: Leadership


We live in a time of unprecedented change, and project and program managers operate more and more in automated environments with ambiguous problem statements, conflicting stakeholder priorities and complex solutions. We need new tools, techniques and approaches for delivering successful projects.

In this engaging discussion, Tim will explore a practical set of tool and techniques he uses and has gathered from other project managers around the world to drive complex change. We will talk about mindset, and where project managers get off target in driving complex change. We will look at some fun examples and share some best practices. Feel free to bring your own favorite tip, trick or tool.

It is time for us to redefine the role of the project manager and project team, to evolve the competencies needed to manage large implementations in commerce, transport, healthcare and all areas where new is the norm. After all, projects begin and end with people.
