Once of the most critical aspects of project management is doing what’s necessary to develop and manage relationships with all individuals that the project impacts.

In this webinar, you’ll learn techniques for identifying stakeholders, analyzing their influence on the project, and developing strategies to communicate, set boundaries, and manage competing expectations.

By effectively managing your stakeholders, you will be better able to keep a lid on scope creep, ensure project requirements are aligned, understand tolerance for risk, and mitigate issues that would otherwise delay the project.

Effective stakeholder management is proof of your influence in an organization, and a key component to a healthy project environment.

Key learning points from this webinar include:

  • How to identify project stakeholders
  • How to conduct a stakeholder analysis
  • How to manage different types of stakeholders

A successful engagement with the correct stakeholders will result in a full understanding of what the vision, challenges and opportunities are, as well as confirm the current state of the organisation.

Understanding how the organisation currently looks and what it can achieve is the starting point to help the customer meet their strategic goals and objectives.

This allows an assessment of their current capabilities, which when compared to an analysis of the target state, enables a gap analysis to be carried out.

The gap in these business capabilities is the opportunity to demonstrate how to deliver solutions tailored to the customer’s needs.

The key techniques and tools covered are:

  • Capability Modelling
    • Modelling services
    • Business Conceptual layer
    • Fulfilling objectives and responsibilities
  • Capability Gap Analysis
    • Gap between current performance and future performance
    • Capability Gap and Complex Transformation Programmes
    • Organisational Design

The Ability To Connect With Others
To Form A Productive Team

Individual strengths can lead to a personal triumph,
But a team is greater than the sum of its parts.

Rich Karlgaard, Publisher of Forbes Magazine, recently wrote an article entitled “Teams Matter. Talent is Not Enough.”

In essence, it is a challenge for executives to find and exploit the “magic” of team synergy.

The metrics of teaming now exist!  Even the most extraordinary individual effort is no substitute for great teamwork. Teaming metrics are key to improving selection, increasing engagement, and vastly reducing new-hire turnover, all with measurable business value.

With TGI Teamability:
PMs will be able to create extremely strong teams.

In this introduction you will learn:

  • A completely new technology will help you understand why talented, experienced people do not always “team” well with others.
  • How to reduce the costs and risks associated with errors in hiring and promoting,
    • Metrics and methods that measure and predict “teaming” behaviors.
    • How to effectively analyze and solve team performance problems.
  • How to deliver significant business value by matching people to the functional mission of their team
    • The ‘who fits where’ and the ‘why’ of winning teams
    • Behaviors that impact quality of team interaction and ‘fit’ to job responsibilities
  • How it possible to reliably select high quality team players, and to match their job responsibilities to the way they envision themselves serving their team (their “Role”).

This is a MUST TAKE opportunity to help you understand the strengths of your team members placing them in the roles that will make your projects even more successful!
