During this meeting, we will continue to discuss the book and have a moderated chat about what we found interesting, striking, or even controversial so far.

He is also championing transformational change within his business, with partners and in the wider supply chain.
Grant will set out why and how he believes the profession needs to change, the potential prize available to us and share insights into his journey so far. Although his challenge is focused on the construction industry, the insights will be applicable to every sector that aspires to transition towards data driven project delivery.
Michael Lewrick, the author, will join us to answer our questions and share further insights about the book with us.
Outline of subjects you will cover:
Learning from lessons of the past projects is essential for organisations and projects to prevent mistakes from happening over and over again. Lessons Learned repositories are identified as important Organisational Process Assets (OPS), and evaluating the lessons in such repositories in key stages of the project is strongly emphasized in the PMBoK. However, many companies fail to implement successful lessons learned programs and cannot convince PMs and project teams to spend their scarce resources for learning.
This workshop will be an extended version of Bruce Gay's April 15th webinar for the PMI UK Chapter.
In the current business environment, project leaders must look beyond the foundational knowledge of managing projects and embrace more innovative practices and methodologies. Design Thinking enables project teams to solve business problems by following an iterative process and focusing on their customer’s or user’s standpoint. It is another method that can be added to a project leader’s toolbox to help manage risk, customer expectations, and to ensure stakeholder alignment.
If you are a leader, manager or in a PM position where influence is key, you may well be:
What you are looking for is the how-to’s. How to influence more people, more of the times. Techniques and tools that work consistently that you can learn easily and, effortlessly.
Change is now an understatement! However, we are not defined by external events and changes. We are defined by our chosen responses.
If you want to learn about a map that will guide you in your personal development journey. If you want to drastically expand your communication abilities. If you want to be a leader of transformation and a great facilitator of your teams to embrace change. Then these will be a couple of hours well invested.
During the seminar we are going to learn and discuss the Neurological Levels Model of NLP. It’s one of the most effective Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) tools to influence learning, communications and change.
