    Culture and Fit from the 2020 UMD Symposium

    Culture and Fit from the 2020 UMD Symposium

    The first in a series featuring highlights from University of Maryland's 2020 Project Management Symposium focuses on culture and the importance of fitting in. We examine the hiring process, and maintaining a culture designed to retain top-notch staff. We also learn about a unique approach to stakeholder management. By observing organizational culture through an ethnographic lens, PMs can detect patterns and probabilities, and address potential gaps before they become a serious roadblock to project success.

    Milestones in History

    Milestones in History

    The 9/11 boat lift in New York City and the Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955-56 were both hugely successful projects, with important lessons for Project Managers. The leaders did fast but effective planning and set clear goals. They hit all the milestones, and adapted as they went along.  They communicated effectively and strategically, and were alert to risks as they emerged. In this episode we hear from two project managers who have studied these historic events through a project lens.

In this episode of PM Point of View®, PMs discuss effective communications strategies, the benefits of establishing a PMO (or Project Management Office) within an organization, and the Indispensable Project Manager.

    If you think of leadership like parenting, you can comprehend the concept of teamraising. Good leaders foster an environment where good manners and civility prevail. They pay attention to the individuals, and groom those with leadership potential, guiding them through training and experiences they need to get to the next level. In this podcast, experts discuss the ways organizations can and should address these issues, thus enabling greater success for the organization, the project, and everyone involved.

    The Art of Negotiation

    The Art of Negotiation

    PMs deal with multiple stakeholders - the executives who commission the project; the project team who implements it; and the end users/recipients. They all have needs, requirements and limits. The better you can negotiate these competing concerns, the more fluidly your project will run, and the more effective your outcomes will be. If done well, the resolution will yield more than either party anticipated. Three experts discuss the approaches, strategies and tools to enhance your negotiation skills.
