Engaging Your Enterprise and Finding Flow 
Held on Tuesday, October 15, 2019

We live and work in a time of rapid change. This is especially true for portfolio, program, and project leaders. Organizations want practitioners and tools that can adapt quickly to a rapidly changing environment. At the same time, project managers and project management offices are asked to maintain a tenacious focus on knowing and doing the right things. The organizations and teams that do this well are highly engaged and use this engagement to facilitate a flow of creativity, productivity, and accomplishment that builds more engagement and flow. But how do you do this?

WMPMI's Professional Development Day 2019 -- Engaging Your Enterprise and Finding Flow -- is a highly interactive program that will provide you with engagement and flow techniques that you can apply immediately to your project teams and begin building into your organization's culture.

High Performance Engagement Using Flow
90 minutes - 1.5 PDUs (1.0 Leadership / 0.5 Strategic and Business Management)
Presenter: Ted Kallman  -  Managing Director / CEO of Tiba USA

An article written by James Harter, PhD., in the Harvard Business Review states that companies with engaged employees outperform other companies by 22%.  The article states; “engaged employees “continuously recreate jobs so that each person has a chance to do what they do best.” Engaged employees “listen to the opinions of people close to the action (close to actual safety issues and quality or defect issues), and help people see the connection between their everyday work and the larger purpose or mission of the organization.” When engaged employees do this they create a virtuous circle where communication and collaboration nurture engagement and vice versa. When employees… “clearly know their role, have what they need to fulfill their role, and can see the connection between their role and the overall organizational purpose,” says Harter, “that’s the recipe for creating greater levels of engagement.”

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the elements of productive engagement.
  2. Learn how a business agile framework communicate and cascade engagement using Vision and Strategy throughout an organization and why this works.
  3. Determine which tools you can use right now to increase engagement regardless of PM methodology.
  4. Know how the Unified Vision Framework facilitates successful focus on the right culture-enabling engagement.
