In their book “Playing to Win, How Strategy Really Works” A. G. Lafley and Roger Martin argue that leaders need to understand that the work of strategy is based on a cascade of interconnected choices that start with clarifying “winning aspirations” and end with the identification of the capabilities and systems required to win.

The power of this message is that it clearly highlights …
The two sides of strategy, thinking & doing!

Traditionally speaking the field of strategy focused on the art of crafting strategy, however, executives are increasingly recognizing that this is only one side of the coin.

A successful strategy takes into account not only the realities of markets and competition but is also built on the capabilities of the organization.

This is perhaps forcing management consultants and strategy gurus to rethink how they explain strategy.

There is greater recognition now that successful strategy is not simply dependent on putting in place a strong strategy setting framework but also an effective delivery mechanism that executes it.

Linking strategy thinking with doing presents a huge opportunity for project management both as a discipline and a profession to uniquely meet the strategy execution challenge.

It is within this context that PMOs can step up to the plate and bridge the gap between crafting and delivering.

In this webinar  Philip Diab (LinkedIn profile) will explore some critical questions addressing the role of the PMO in strategy execution.

Learn:

  • Are there different types of PMOs and are some better positioned to support the organization in strategy?
  • Does strategy execution warrant a re-examination of the role of PMOs in organizations?
  • Can the PMO embrace a mission that includes a diverse range of services and at the same time support executives in delivering strategy?
  • How can the PMO add value in strategy execution?
  • What capabilities does the PMO need to meet the strategy execution challenge?
  • Does the PMO team composition need to be adjusted to address strategy execution?

The webinar will leverage lessons learned based on real life examples to explain how the PMO can add value to the field of strategy execution.

The #1 Focus In The Learning Field Is Workplace Performance

In this session, you won’t hear that today’s learners have the attention span of a goldfish, that training is dead, or that neuro-gamification is the future.  :)

Instead, the speakers will provide practical research-based ideas that you can utilize to energize your learning and support your employees in maximizing their on-the-job performance.

We often default to old models of learning—even when we’re using the latest technologies.

Even worse, we jump on the bandwagon of a new learning tool without aligning it to proven research-based learning methods.

In this session, noted research-to-practice expert, Will Thalheimer of Work-Learning Research will explore the power of three learning methods to help learners transfer what they’ve learned to their jobs—gamification, threaded microlearning, and measurement.

Joining him, Roni Floman of GamEffective will highlight these methods using real-world examples.

  1. Learn specifically how gamification can be performance-focused on real-world KPI’s—above and beyond learning.
  2. See how learning can be augmented with threaded microlearning nuggets (both informational and task-oriented).
  3. Finally See how improved learner feedback questions can focus on performance and create continuous cycles of improvement.

Presenters:

Roni Floman (LinkedIn profile) is the VP of Marketing at GamEffective, a performance and learning gamification and feedback platform. GamEffective is a 2016 Gartner Cool Vendor in HCM and is deployed in some of the world’s largest companies.

Will Thalheimer (LinkedIn profile) a learning expert, researcher, instructional designer, business strategist, speaker, and writer since 1985 Will founded Work-Learning Research to bridge the gap between research and practice, and disseminate research findings to help  build more effective learning-and-performance interventions and environments.  Will has an  impressive list of international clients and his research and writings have led the field in providing practical research-based recommendations through his online publications, published articles, and his industry-leading blog. In 2016 he published Performance-Focused Smile Sheets: A Radical Rethinking of a Dangerous Art Form

Activity Type: Education – Course or Training  1 Hour  1 PDU

Projects are the mechanism to realize business strategy, create competitive advantage and achieve organizational transformation.

Important stuff, but most often, projects are being done in addition to ongoing business operations with constrained resources.

Therefore success is dependent on getting the right resources, spending your budget wisely, and keeping people focused and motivated to execute.

Warning signs that a project is headed to failure include missed deadlines, confusion, conflict and churning. All this can contribute to project manager and team burnout.

Effective project managers look for these early warning signs of failure and burnout so they can take corrective actions, but more importantly, they proactively work to avoid them.

In this webinar you will learn tips and techniques to:

  • Cultivate a healthy environment for your project, your team, and yourself
  • Create best practices you can rely on to drive the project forward
  • Leverage relationships to support and motivate
