In the current global economic climate, organizations are forced to “innovate or die.” Only innovative organizations can survive the highly competitive global market. As organizations utilize programs and projects to achieve their strategies and goals, program and project managers have a major role to play in driving an organizational culture of creativity and innovation. 

This seminar focuses on leadership competencies required for project / program managers to manage their teams most effectively and drive an organizational culture of creativity and innovation:  developing their (own) individual creative skills, unleashing their teams’ creative and innovative potentials and building on creativity to drive innovation (both sustaining innovation and disruptive innovation) in their organization. 

An innovation framework for project management will be introduced – a structured approach for program and project managers to utilize in starting and delivering innovation projects.  Participants will explore ways to implement innovation using open innovation and innovation platforms.

Earn 16 PDUs (8 Strategic PDUs + 8 Leadership PDUs) with 14 (classroom) hours and pre-seminar reading assignments. Take advantage of discounted rates for PMI members. 

Continental breakfast will be served at 8:00 am and snacks will be served for afternoon break.

"Fear Is the Value Killer"
presented by Rob Gordick, Daugherty Business Solutions/Sr. Principal

The Agile Forum meetings offer an opportunity for professional networking and knowledge sharing with other agile practitioners as well as provide a learning environment for professionals interested in learning about agile techniques. Everyone is welcome to participate.                                                      

Presentation

RobGordickHow happiness, trust & security enables great teams.

To deliver great value to the customer, software product teams must be able to; build & deploy, measure, and learn as fast as possible. To truly embrace a ‘continuous improvement’ culture, key values must be nurtured and strengthened. If our goal is to maximize value delivery, then our ‘people-focused’ objectives should continuously reduce wasteful behaviors.

In this session, we’ll identify and discuss core values of strong agile and lean minded delivery teams. You will learn coaching techniques, to help teams understand their desired values compared against its practiced values. We’ll discuss methods to measure and track these values over time. Then, together, learn ways to help teams self-regulate their behavior. Along the way, key practices encouraging great values will be examined, including ways to help spot and adjust poor values which inhibit a team’s full potential.

Finally, we’ll look at how trust, happiness, and psychological security interrelate with Lean and Agile approaches (e.g., Scrum, XP, Kanban) and how conquering fear at the personal and team level significantly enables a team to achieve its maximum potential.
