Complexity theory – which teaches that total order does not allow for enough flexibility – has become a new area of potential in the field of management.

Not surprisingly, program management (which emphasizes rules and hierarchy) has tended to be resistant to these concepts.

As a result, there is very little material that would help practicing program managers in the area of leveraging complex communications.

In this webinar, Wanda Curlee (LinkedIn profile) and Robert Gordon (LinkedIn profile) will address this problem and share with you practical tips on how to use complexity theory to manage and lead the communication effort on programs.

This webinar will define what it means to take a consultative approach to program management by identifying the eight key guiding principles as well as several strategies for applying such principles to your programs.

The business environment has been evolving over the last several decades because of many factors including a volatile economy, growth in technology, increased competition and demanding customers and shareholders.

Companies are also taking larger bets with technology as a means of competitive advantage. The result has been a rise in large and complex programs for many companies. These programs usually span many years, cost millions or even tens or hundreds of millions of dollars to run, involve many people from across the organization and usually also include vendors and partners from other companies.

While programs are getting larger and more complex, at the same time the success rate of programs remains low.

In order to manage programs in this environment, it is imperative to take a “consultative approach” to running them. A consultative approach involves managing these programs with a core set of guiding principles and utilizing them across every function of the program.

Kerry Wills will define what it means to take a consultative approach by identifying the eight key guiding principles and then propose several strategies to enable Program Managers to be successful in the new landscape by applying them to their programs.

Presenter: Kerry Wills PMP (LinkedIn profile) climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in 2000. He spent months designing his approach, preparing the equipment, training for endurance and executing the plan. His impressive Keynote address Summitting Mt. Kilimanjaro: A Project Management Case Study (1 Cat A – more info) has presented to many PMI® Chapters and is available as a recorded session from ITMPI.

Digitization, mobile applications and a business environment that require rapid response are significantly changing the environment in which most organizations are conducting projects and programs.

While there has always been pressure for “faster, better and cheaper,” all three of these terms are taking on new meanings – and classic PMOs located in IT are poorly equipped to deal with them.

Where providing visibility and enforcing consistency and controls were rewarded in the past, there will just be a single significant metric in the future – value contributed.

Discussion Topics:

  • How PMOs will evolve from local compliance activities to value contributed
  • How PPM leaders should adjust their practices to execute in an uncertain environment that demands speed and requires ongoing innovation
  • How demand should be handled to ensure priorities are met, resources are available and benefits are realized
