An effective project leader must be able to think systematically and act in multiple time frames. This intensive workshop goes beyond traditional project tools and techniques, to develop Leadership Development and behaviors that ordinarily take months, even years to acquire. A NASA developed simulation exercise takes you through the experience of planning and executing a complex IT project and provides exposure to all the major issues faced by project managers in their daily work. The simulation places you in another time and space where you become the agent of your own learning. The workshop is a real learning laboratory – you learn from the highly experience instructors, the simulation, and above all from your teammates and other participants. You are guided through a structure approach to planning and execution of a complex project, providing exposure to all the major issues faced by project managers in their daily work. You must balance cost, schedule, quality issues while interfacing with stakeholders and managing crisis events. The focus is on integrating critical management tasks, such as planning, implementing with the key leadership behaviors for building working relationships and teams. You confront and must resolve an array of problems associated with tasks, vendors contractors, quality requirements, schedule commitments, customer interactions, a staff of varying personalities, skills and experience, and other typical project elements – just like real life. A combination of rapid team learning techniques is used, including lectures, a computer simulation, video, process consultation, assessment instruments, group discussions and action/reflection exercises.
Seminar participants will be asked to complete The Project Leader 360 Assessment, a role specific, highly researched assessment., and will receive personal coaching based on results. Participants will receive information from their instructors regarding completion prior to the seminar.
The cost of this assessment is $75.00 and is included in your seminar fee. The assessment cost is non-refundable.
