May 2019 WLEC PMI Monthly Chapter Meeting

WHAT: PMI WLEC Monthly Chapter Meeting 

PRESENTATION TOPIC: “Creating a Project Leadership Culture based on PMP Best Practices.” 

WHEN: Tuesday, May 14, 2019 (6:00pm - 8:00pm)

WHERE: O-I Perrysburg Campus Plaza Four, 2051 N Wilkinson Way, Perrysburg, Ohio 43551

SPEAKER: Mr. Richard Broo, MBA, PMP is a practitioner of project and program management and a recognized professional in the field of helping businesses implement change.

MODERATOR: John Zickafoose, President, PMI WLEC

 

DESCRIPTION OF SESSION:

Project Managers drive change not just through facilitating projects to on-budget and on-time delivery, they drive change by educating company leadership on what constitutes effective project management. Company leadership can hinder the success of a project by failing to do their due diligence prior to project initiation and/or changing baseline priorities with regards to project scope, time and cost once a project has launched. It is the project manager’s responsibility to mitigate this risk up-front in a project by educating company leadership on what constitutes a solid project charter and project management plan. Project managers hurt their ability to drive change to facilitate effective project management by failing to use basic tools taught in PMP education that if used could help avoid “management creep” into a project.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Highlight issues caused by company leadership that hinder a project managers performance and what the project manager should do to avoid these issues.
  • The project manager will be better able to understand the value they bring to the overall organization by having well-structured information that can drive improved decision making. By having good circumstance definitions – other stakeholders can learn from them and be proactive in new projects to avoid duplicate omissions.
