Your profession demands that you remember a wealth of knowledge including client information, market data, presentations…and most importantly, names. A simple slip of the mind can result in thousands of dollars in lost sales or credibility. Today’s workshop is a fast paced, success oriented way to learn the basics of the “Memory Switch” system. Matthew will address the competitive advantage that a trained memory can give both personally and professionally, and demonstrate what can be done with a trained memory.

Risk based innovation: The Innovation Ecocycle 

Abstract:

Innovation is risky, requiring a unique combination of novelty and practicality to deliver something new and better in uncertain and challenging circumstances. This presentation shows how risk management can support innovation projects by focusing on both upside opportunities as well as downside threats. The Innovation Ecocyle is introduced as a framework to address both exploration and learning, and the role of risk management in supporting both loops of the Innovation Ecocyle is explained. Practical approaches are presented showing how the risk process allows us to find innovative opportunities, pick the real winners, and make it happen.

Discover how a simple integrated risk process can help to stop things going wrong in your innovation projects, as well as help things go right.

Communication Bleeps and Blunders in Business

Abstract:

A major challenge in project management today is communication. You said one thing; your sponsor, client or stakeholder heard something else. Nobody was wrong, but now everyone’s confused...and you have to deal with it!

This informative and entertaining keynote shares funny, true examples from the business world to illustrate how we all miscommunicate...and how we can improve.

Learning objectives:
  1. Techniques for communicating clearly and precisely.
  2. A mastery of eight problem words that could cost you sponsors or stakeholders.
  3. Fresh insight on voice mail communication to eliminate confusion and save time.

Topic:

Resurrecting Projects Going South Using PMBOK

Abstract:

The Fort Monmouth Myer Center Abatement, Demolition and Site Improvements Design was a successful project proven by the superior performance of the project team and the execution of exemplary project management. Services provided included site / civil engineering; mechanical, electrical and plumbing; environmental permitting; environmental site assessments; construction management / project management; structural engineering; survey; as well as environmental testing. The demolition of the Myer Center is an extremely large undertaking and has the potential to cause many impacts to the surrounding community if not handled properly. This, in addition to various setbacks that occurred during the design phase, put a lot of pressure on the team. However, the project was executed using processes and approaches consistent with the PMI Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and, as such, proved to be a great success. This presentation will address how PMBOK methods were used to deliver the Fort Monmouth Myer Center Project and how they can be implemented to resurrect projects of all shapes and sizes.
