Transformational Leadership in this Digital Age for the Project Economy - 2022908

Friday, June 24, 2022
9:00am - 1:00pm

The digital age is disrupting every area of business. Adapting to digital transformation requires more than new strategies, a complete restructuring of the organization and its operations and processes. This begins by understanding how digital is transforming the industry value chain and how new value propositions can be defined for the digital customer. The leadership needs to reimagine & transform the organization for ambitious purpose.

What are the leadership competencies needed to thrive in this era of rapid technology and business model change? This presentation will examine the challenges/issues presented and the new leadership models/theories that have emerged over the past few years. The entrepreneurial success stories of the digital economy definitely supports the theory that ‘Leaders aren't born, they are made’. We will discuss the impacts of digital age and some ‘bold’ & ‘inspired’ leadership successes. For this age of digital disruption, the demand is for Transformational leadership, where a leader identifies the needed change, creates a vision to guide the change and executes through inspiration.

Organizational transformations are happening through projects. As projected by PMI, project-oriented economic activity worldwide would grow to $20 trillion in 2027. There will be cultural & organizational impacts due to this transformation to a project economy. In this change-driven world, leadership can use the project canvas framework to strategically define the value and benefits.

This Half-day Seminar addresses why project/program/portfolio managers need to understand & acquire this skill to lead the transformational aspects of strategic initiatives in this digital age. A Case Study of a successful transformational leadership will be discussed. Social media clips and digital surveys will be used to engage the participants. Harvard Business Review(HBR) articles/case studies on Transformation and Reinventing Team Leadership will be discussed to thrive in this digital economy. Participants earn 4 PDUs (3 Leadership PDUs + 1 Strategic PDUs). PMI members have the advantage of discounted rates for attending the half-day seminar.

After completing the course, you will be able to

1. Describe the new business & leadership opportunity created due to digital transformation.

2. Recognize different leadership behaviors and develop new digital skills for this era of technology, change in markets and social media.

3. Learn from Case Study/ examples presented and apply the transformation principles/ techniques to various projects.
