So you’ve been assigned a complex,
poorly defined project concept
So now what?

Nothing is worse (or better) for a senior project manager or analyst than being handed a project that is: strategic, very large, and way outside your comfort zone in complexity. These projects will sometimes roll around the halls of big companies for months while they struggle to gain sufficient momentum and clarity to really move forward with a sense of purpose and direction.

Let’s say one of these career-bruisers/-builders is yours? What do you do next?

This session is about the tactics of early-stage project intake and clarification – getting clarity efficiently.

Learning objectives:

  1. Inside the project intake process – why is intake so dysfunctional?
  2. The action plan – simple steps that drive project clarity and milestones that deliver benefit.
  3. Targeted result – time tested deliverables that work

In today’s disruptive and challenging marketplace, organizations are reinventing themselves to sustain a competitive post. Their leadership development (LD) is limping alongside — it is not bent; it is broken.

Without the benefit of practical examples and success stories, the window through which to see leading practices for high-performance leadership development and how they work best in your organization, can be foggy.

It can be even more challenging to implement practices that make a measurable impact on your business.

Join Shawn Hunter, (LinkedIn profile, ShawnHunter.com) Executive Producer for Leadership Development Channels from Skillsoft, Laci Loew, (LinkedIn profile) Vice President Talent Management Practices and Principal Analyst from Brandon Hall Group, and Annette Miller, (LinkedIn profile) Talent Management Lead North America from Capgemini as they share some success stories and analytics-based, actionable strategies of how high-performing organizations are deploying leadership development today.

This is an opportunity to explore three leading leadership development practices, compare them to what is happening in your organization, and define your calls-to-action for closing the gaps.

Based on highlights of Brandon Hall Group’s latest leadership development benchmarking research, this webcast, will explore high-performance Leadership Development practices.

Explore Leadership Development including:

  • A marquee learning culture;
  • The critical path to effective leadership development solutions; and
  • The role of mentoring in optimizing leader performance.
