Leading big project teams webinar
Preparing for projects in a Post-Pandemic World webinar series
As we emerge into the uncertain conditions of the post pandemic world, project leaders are going to need to be able to tap into the human potential for flexibility, adaptability and innovation.
Unfortunately, our traditional management practices are based on a command-and-control model of leadership that becomes increasingly obsolete as projects grow in scale and complexity.
Based on research over the last seven years into successful projects, this webinar presented on Friday 1 May 2020 considered an alternative approach where the leadership role focuses less on control and is instead concerned with connection, communication, collaboration and learning.
