Part 1):  Managing Change and Uncertainty With Project Portfolio Management

SYNOPSIS:  Managing change and uncertainty requires a constant and close alignment between the operational execution of project, the external environment, strategy and available resources. Project Portfolio Management is a proven and practical approach to achieve this alignment and facilitate regular executive conversations about projects and their contribution to the success of an organization. 


Part 2):  Agile Leadership – Scaling Agility From Projects to Organizations

SYNOPSIS: With agility already well established and successful in the project management domain, more and more organizations now want to scale and implement agility more broadly across the entire organization. In doing so, they often experience challenges and resistance due to a missing agile mindset and culture requiring a new type of agile leadership to overcome. This talk looks at the broader context of agile leadership from an organizational and project perspective and explores the leadership capabilities, mindset and culture needed to successfully implement agile initiatives and transformations on an organizational level.
