Fast moving agile businesses need engaged teams that drive out faster testable insights for extremely reduced time from concept to cash.

NextGen Project Managers and Business Analysts meet this challenge with their own NextGen business competencies – to build shared understanding of trends, customer/market forces and organizational imperatives to drive fast value decision making.

They exert new forms of leadership to help teams of all kinds (IT and beyond) to seed their backlogs with innovative pre-flight tested, market ready ideas.

This series will be a four part deep dive into a competency wheel for new project leaders called the Discovery Leadership framework.

Developed by Kupe Kupersmith CBAP®, (LinkedIn @Kupe)President B2T Training, and Curtis Michelson (LinkedIn profile) with guidance from a global community, the framework is a holistic set of competencies grouped into four chunks.

  • How far can we see – into the future, into the business and into the customer and market forces that impact us?

That’s the differentiating edge we’ll explore in this first session.

There are two lenses through which we’ll peer in this session:

  1. The systems thinking lens and
  2. The customer and design thinking lens.

Those two lenses drive us to three core outcomes:

  1. Better problem statements or “hypotheses”,
  2. Richer multi-perspectival value stories and
  3. A laboratory for creating experiments to test your NextGen ideas.

Join Curtis Michelson in this deep dive into a competency wheel for new project leaders.
