CANCELED- May 2022 - Personal Currency in a Project Management Virtual World

05-20-2022 9:00 am -12:00 pm
Online/Virtual
$45.00

With the need to send employees home to work, the work-from-home movement got a huge boost. What we have found in the board room is a split of three-quarters of the companies are adopting a work from home or a hybrid model. To add to the concern/challenge, there is an additional pressure of the lack of workforce availability and “personal currency” changes in the workforce. To make this move, a change in management style and philosophy has had to take place. That change is not relative to what work has to be done, but how to measure the work product and find milestones for measurement. In English, “don’t worry about how much time is spent “working” and concentrate on production and results.”

So how does this affect Project Management professionals? Project work products now need to be broken down into processes and projects with timelines and deadlines. Yes, it sounds like piece work, but it has been astonishing to learn how much waste is being found in time and money when accounting functions were taken apart.

This course provides an opportunity to earn 3 PDUs in half day.

Prof C will present his experience and his desperate attempts to limit how clients communicate with him to start the discussion with PMI members regarding their strategies.
