PMTV Episode 3: Troubled projects (Tue. 18 Sep, 2012 3:00 am - 4:00 am)

This is a web based event.  Sept 18th Noon BST (GMT +01:00) 3 am PDT
Episode 3: Troubled projects
In this episode we explore the issue of ‘Projects in trouble’.  Anyone who’s worked in a project environment can tell you that no matter how meticulous you are with your Gantt charts, risk logs and budget projections, things sometimes do not go to plan.  On Tuesday 18th September, 12 noon GMT+1, we’ll be joined live on air by three prominent project managers who will share their advice on spotting the early warning signs of trouble ahead, and how to respond when the brown stuff hits the fan.  We hope you can join us!

Schnitizer Steel: Visualizing Project Leadership: A Project Manager’s Key to Success (Thu. 20 Sep, 2012 11:30 am - 1:30 pm)

This is a private event for Schnitizer Steel
Visualizing Project Leadership: A Project Manager’s Key to Success
Can you visualize your projects—its risks, goals, issues, assumptions, mitigations, what helps, and what hinders?  If you could, would you be able to move, manage, and relate to them?  Could you use that to get your team and stakeholders to help? By using the Project Prototyping technique, you create group exercises that materialize these attributes and move them around the room, even off your project. Everyone in the group visualizes how these factors affecting the project can be enhanced, improved, mitigated, or eliminated.  The technique illustrates communication and support issues, allowing you to try new project strategies that everyone is involved in designing.
This presentation uses you—the audience—to create a Project Prototyping of how you currently view projects, teaches a few basic leadership skills, and then enlists the audience again to show how those skills a can be put into action. The result is a open conversation that exposes concepts that are innovative, sometimes radical, to change the interrelationship of people, process, and the inanimate objects that constitute our project.
The key learning objectives that will most benefit the participants.


Project prototyping—a method to visual your project in its environment.
How to advance you project management skills to project leadership skills.
How to convey project issues to a larger group to solve.
