PMI OVOC Lunch Seminar — April 29, 2015: 'More than a Plane Ticket: Leading a Project Overseas'

Our presenter, Edan Puritt, will speak to how we already know that departments in the same city have cultural differences, but imagine how different it is working 10,000 kilometers away in a place with thousands of years of different history, and probably even a different native language. You can't cross that divide with just an airplane ticket.

Edan is a professional IM Strategist at Askari Solutions Inc. with more than 25 years of experience providing Technical, Organization and Educational services. Clientele includes Canadian governmental departments, international non-governmental organizations (based in Canada, Switzerland, Southern Africa, South-east Asia, and the Middle East), trade unions, and private industry/trade sector (Switzerland, Canada, Mexico and United States.)

5 project management methods you can use to get the most out of your startup team
VentureBurn
Many associate startup with spontaneity and a can-do attitude, but not as much with project management. This is not terribly surprising. With the overwhelming burden of starting a business and all of the costs and decisions that go into it, project management can often fall to the bottom of the list. However, entrepreneurs embarking on a new business adventure should take time to explore the benefits of this resource to monitor and maintain their team's productivity.

Targeted communication: The key to effective stakeholder engagement
ProjectManagement.com
Whether an individual, group or organization, each stakeholder has a unique and evolving set of expectations and perceptions. To effectively engage with and influence this diverse community, traditional "one size fits all" approaches to project communications — such as regular reports—need to be replaced by a structured methodology supported by adequate resources that consider the complexities of all stakeholders.

Managing a project is like driving a BMW
CIO
In project management, much like driving vs. riding in a 1992 BMW 3 series, managing the project is quite different from working on the project. I'm not saying it's better. I'm not saying it's the ultimate management experience. But I am saying that much like driving a BMW 3 series, if you're organized and successful as a project manager, you do have a nice sense of control.
