Presentation: A New Way of Networking From A Place of Giving
In this interactive class we will explore how to flip the traditional networking model from getting to giving. We begin by discussing the definition of what appreciative inquiry is, what its characteristics are, and how it can be applied universally to create a psychologically safe space where people are free to express what could be.
Each participant will be given a prompt question and the group will work in dyads to apply the concepts of active listening and appreciative inquiry to identify potential opportunities for sharing resources. Everyone will experience energizing moments of what it is like to receive valuable resources without having to ask for them to be given.
Most of us are implementing Agile teams, but we are not applying Agile and Lean principles to the work being performed at the portfolio and program levels of our organization.
This workshop will provide the principles and practices that will allow you to convert from being a Project Management Office to a Value Management Office. You and your team will learn how to identify the most valuable initiatives, and how to help the organization rapidly deliver value to customers and the business.
This workshop focuses on identifying value streams within your organization, and making sure strategy converts into valued initiatives, that are broken down and pulled into delivery teams. We will provide examples and templates that will allow your executives to outline and rank strategic initiatives. We will provide tools for the program level of your organization, that will allow you to score, research, and queue up initiatives for delivery teams.
Our 6th Annual Professional Development Event, Instant Impact 2019, promises to be the most productive educational experience for the project management community in the Olympia and South Puget Sound region. You will expand your knowledge, hone your management skills, learn from active practitioners, and be enlightened about various tools, techniques and strategies that support your personal and professional growth.
