"Leadership and Governance within Demand Management" presented by Eric Klein, General Manager of Demand Planning, Delta Airlines

The PMI Atlanta Governance Forum has established a premier collaboration and networking experience for Project/Program Managers and those involved with PMOs – to share challenges, trends, leading practices, and thought leadership.

Governance practitioners typically include members from strategic, corporate, and operational management. Attendees will find this forum beneficial and should gain invaluable, just-in-time insight for existing business challenges.

Presentation

Klein-Eric-2-squaredEric will speak about the core values and a clear set of unifying behaviors that provide a solid foundation for Delta’s culture. Eric will walk through examples of how to put these core values to use. Each of us has the opportunity every day to be a leader in how we represent our organizations, how we handle difficult and unpredictable situations, how we use our resources and how we take care of our customers, our shareholders and each other.  So clearly, being a leader is not confined to those who hold a certain title.

The “Rules of the Road” outlines expectations of what it means to live out these values and leadership behaviors every day. While some of this content is originally intended for those who formally lead teams, in today’s business environment we all have a responsibility to protect and preserve our organizations culture. The Rules of the Road reflects what is expected of people and those who are privileged to lead them. Our “rules of the road” are timeless and are the backbone of everything we do.

Did you know that you can achieve 15-40% efficiency gains and cost savings in 4-8 weeks using Lean/Agile? And that most of the time, these gains also lead to generating additional revenue? Other organizations and teams have experienced this phenomenon, and you can too if you invest a day in learning how. It doesn’t matter whether your process is technical such as software development or business focused such as issuing an insurance policy; all processes can be improved significantly using Lean/Agile practices.

In RefineM’s Lean/Agile Process Improvement Workshop, you will learn about process flows and optimization using concepts such as value stream mapping, WIP limits, Kanban boards, and Agile. You and your team will identify areas of improvement, organize them into themes, visualize the current process, and build a Kanban board to identify opportunities for immediate improvement. You will leave the course with the ability to optimize and improve upon critical business and technical processes demonstrated by key metrics. By implementing Lean/Agile training and process improvement, you could increase business efficiency by as much as 15-40% within 4-8 weeks.

The benefits of the workshop are increased exponentially when more than one individual from your team or organization participates. This allows you to not only learn the Lean/Agile concepts but apply those to your specific technical/business processes during the workshop and walk away with a value stream map and Kanban board that you can start using right away.

"Project Leadership: Moving to a Higher Level" presented by Michael Wilkinson, Leadership Strategies, Inc. 

As a project manager, you already know how to develop a work breakdown structure, create tasks, assign resources, monitor progress, and adjust timelines. So rather than project management, this workshop is about moving your project leadership skills to a higher level.

What is the difference between a manager and a leader?  How do you inspire your team members to excel to the best of their abilities?  How do you build trust and empower the team to higher levels of success? In this highly engaging and dynamic workshop, Michael Wilkinson, the founder of Leadership Strategies and author of The Secrets of Facilitation, will review the seven principles for taking a facilitative approach to project leadership and share key strategies you can use immediately to raise your leadership skills to a higher level.
