The Fallacy of Multitasking 

and its 

Impact on Project Management

In this fast-moving society that we live in, it has become a trend to constantly juggle between multiple tasks. The fact that technology allows for quick communication methods makes multitasking so easy that we at times don’t even realize we are multitasking. It has become almost second nature for us. Attend this session to understand how multitasking impacts us as project managers and how we manage our human resource capacity. 

 

In this interactive session, you will:

  • Identify the impacts of multitasking on you as a project manager

  • Determine the best strategies for improving your capacity as a Project Manager

  • Recognize the impacts of multitasking on your project teams' capacity.

  • Develop strategies to increase human resource capacity on your projects

It's commonly known that stakeholder identification and management are key project deliverables, however, what’s not commonly practiced is to build stakeholder relationships. What do we mean by “relationship” you may ask? In nutshell, it breaks down into four stages. Identification, Engagement, Alignment, and Sustainment.  

        

In this interactive session, you will learn about building stakeholder relationships by: 

  • Identifying the impacted stakeholders

  • Engaging them by onboarding on the change

  • Aligning with them on the project approach

  • Sustaining the relationship with them

From the Triple Constraint to the Triple Bottom Line:

Sustainable Project Management

Can you adopt sustainable project management practices while adding value?  Can one Project Manager make a difference? The answers are Yes.

Sustainable project practices are about more than “being green".  Sustainability requires that we look beyond the scope, schedule, and budget of the temporary project and consider the larger “Triple Bottom Line” that projects operate within. The triple bottom line evaluates performance in a broader perspective considering economic, ecological, and social impacts otherwise known as the 3Ps - Profit, Planet, People. As the agents of change in organizations, Project Managers, are uniquely positioned to identify and lead the change that impacts your “Triple Bottom Line” while creating greater business value.  

                                         

Using today’s linear economic model we take finite resources, create products and then dispose of them.  This "take, make, waste" linear model is no longer sustainable. Learn how you as a Project Manager can shift towards the circular economy model where we “make, use, reuse, remake, and recycle”. 

Upon completion of this interactive session, you will be able to:  

  • Learn

    • Define Triple Bottom line, Triple Constraint and Sustainability

    • Compare the linear and Circular economic models

    • Understand reasons to manage projects sustainably

  • Apply

    • Sustainable project management practices

    • Promote sustainability awareness

  • Achieve

    • Take action

Art and Science of Decision Making

How many decisions do you as a Project Manager make on a given day, week, or month?  The answer is, “countless”. Does common sense and gut feel in decision-making work? The answer is “not always”.  Is there such a thing as “Win-win” with a decision? The answer is “it's rare”. Therefore, it's critical to look deep into the decision-making process and what it takes to be better at decision making. As much as the topic may be a common theme, what we will use to make our key points are the organic, real-life, project management scenarios that you can all relate to.

This interactive session will help you:

  • Realize how the decision-making process is unique to personality

  • Recognize the core character strengths related to decision making

  • Gather and use information to make a decision

  • Use a “push” and “pull” method to help with decision making

  • Choose the best decision-making model for your situation

  • Create an action plan for incorporating decision-making strategies into your project management practices

 

We will use some real-life scenarios for you to LEARN the concepts.  Come prepared with one of your own difficult decision situations to analyze. This way you can APPLY the learnings and ACHIEVE improved results.
