Topic:

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.

The Ever Changing Landscape of the Workplace: Motivating, Managing & Leading 5 Generations

Abstract:

Successfully Blending the Five Generations currently in the workplace can be a tall order. Your leadership is essential in assisting all employees to better understand one another.

Your goal is to lead 5 distinct generations, balance competing priorities and increase productivity while also maintaining focus on the business and your stakeholder(s). A Millennial stakeholder might have a Gen Xer and Boomer involved in the same project. That’s a challenge and requires a keen insight into the best ways to get each to communicate well. That’s difficult, but thankfully, you’re trained for this and much more!

Around the globe and in the U.S., today’s project managers can have up to five different generations working side by side. And, productivity can decrease if your staff doesn’t understand the unique characteristics and talents each person / generation brings. Sponsors want solutions and would love us to come in on time and under budget!

This interactive presentation covers strategic methods of improving employee morale, improving project efficiency, removing barriers, resolving issues and improving employee productivity.  Millennials and Gen. Zers get a special nod in this presentation - you’ll see why they deserve it in this fun, informative and fast paced session!
  • Remove roadblocks/resolve issues so that people can get their work done
  • Grow overall project management, productivity and efficiency
  • Improve all resources understanding of each generation and cultures
  • Identify the 7 most powerful actions we can take to improve employee engagement and cooperation with all generations (based on my four-year survey)
