Project Management Leadership Laboratory: Think, Act, Reflect with Lawrence Suda and Mike Katagiri
DescriptionTopics: Leadership Development | Decision Making Techniques | Leading Project Teams
An effective project leader must be able to think systematically and act in multiple time frames. This intensive seminar goes beyond traditional project tools and techniques to develop leadership skills 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 seminar is a real learning laboratory—you learn from the highly experienced 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, and quality issues while interfacing with stakeholders and managing crisis events. The focus is on integrating critical management tasks, such as planning, and 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 a self-assessment which will be free to participants.
