Why use storytelling in Project Management? Storytelling has been a primary form of communications for millennia. With an ever-increasing need for project managers to paint pictures with data and engage stakeholders in a world of change, there has never been a greater need to use storytelling. This webinar was held on 21 July 2022.
This session showcased two speakers, local to the Thames Valley. Each telling a short story, between 5 and 10 minutes, the presentations were highly visual, engaging, and informative on a wide range of topics relating to project management.
We hope this session inspired, enabled learning and was fun in equal measure.
Host: Greg Krawczyk
Speakers and topics being discussed:
- Steve Walters
The value of prior learning. Over a long career Steve has found that things learned long ago have a habit of “coming round again”, and projects benefit from prior learning to expedite agile delivery now. In this example, Steve describes how spacecraft and robotics benefit from nuclear (and specifically radiation) technology skills.
- Paul Game
Risk management, a short story. Bringing learning from recent master university courses, Paul’s talk will introduce risk management concepts that relate to major projects.
The speakers have very kindly allowed their presented material to be made available for viewing. The Mentimeter slides and the webinar recording on YouTube is now available in our APM resources area and also embedded below for reference.
