Session Two: Project Leadership - You Cannot Manage a Project to Success
Speaker:  John Bowen, Executive Speaker

You cannot manage a project to success; you must lead a project to success.  Over the past 40 years, as project management tools and methodologies have evolved into a proscriptive “discipline,” we have become overly focused on project administration, training and certifying project managers in their ability to report on the easily quantifiable metrics of schedule and cost.  Projects are not about things; projects are about people.  This presentation describes the critical responsibilities of the project manager in leading the team through vision, motivation, communication, action, focus and tenacity, i.e., leadership. The key question is: how do you acquire/develop project leaders?

Who should attend:
Experienced senior project managers
PMO directors
Senior executives

Upcoming Lunch & Learn Sessions with John Bowen:
Session 3:  Leveraging the Early Warning Signs of Project Failure (and Success)
Session 4:  Effective Executive Project Sponsorship
