Presented: by Journyx
Duration: 1 Hour Cat B FREE

Have you ever heard or said the phrase,
I have all of the responsibility but none of the authority”?

Without the proper authority it is difficult to bear the responsibility for a project. Yet this is what we are asked to do many times.

  • How do we exercise project authority when it hasn’t been specifically granted or stated?
  • Is authority something that is given or something that is earned?
  • How do others respond to our authority?

As a Project Manager we are responsible for our projects. By virtue of that responsibility we can assume the authority we need for our projects.

In this session we will explore various ways to assume authority on a project and how to exercise this authority.


  • Taking Responsibility – Understanding your role
  • Core Values – Making project decisions based on your core values
  • Principled Leadership – Leading from the front
  • Benevolent Dictatorship – Be kind with your team and bold with your decisions
  • Moving Forward – Exercising authority in your areas of responsibility

This webinar is 1 hour long and attendees are eligible for 1 PDU.

Seventy-five percent of all change management programs fail because of their lack of employee support.

To ensure the health of an organization, change processes must be embraced on all levels. The role of middle managers today has evolved into the linchpin between senior management and employees as never before.

Incremental change, once episodic, is now endemic to every organization, and change now occurs continuously.

Through technological advances and leaner organizational designs, employees are often expected to do more with less. The result is a new role for middle managers, who are charged with ensuring that the benefits of organizational change are communicated to those who implement it.

Mr. Gilbert discusses the four new role imperatives for middle management and how these roles operate within the lifecycle of change throughout the organization:

  • Creating a positive environment to enable adoption of change
  • Developing accountability and ownership
  • Realizing benefits of change
  • Ensuring return on investment

This presentation addresses this new trend in project management as it relates to change, as well as the evolving role of middle management in the change process. The discussion focuses on emerging responsibilities in change management while introducing ways to operate concretely within the lifecycle of change, and offers practical tips for change adoption using tools to document benefits realization and ensuring return on investment.
