"To Lead Is To Serve Your Team"

This session is about servant leadership. This theory was first presented by Robert Greenleaf in his essay "The Servant as Leader", which is a very short but dense text that is in the origin of numberless books (101 pages of results if you search for "servant leadership" in Amazon). This relevance is also recognized by the PMI: there was a 3 day workshop about servant leadership on the 2016 Leadership Institute Master Class. This session aims to translate all this theory to plain English and put it in practical terms. For instance, the name "servant leader" may be inconsistent at a first glance as you may think that you are either a servant or a leader. The fact is that we all understand this concept already as this is what we do with our own kids and this is what our parents did with us. Don't you serve your kids in the sense that you will do everything you can to make them become what they can or want to be? But you let them tell you what to do, do you? So this is the basis for this leadership theory, to serve something bigger than yourself - may that be your kids, your team, your company, or whatever. In practice, this session is based on the concepts of: - the leader as the one providing the vision, - the servant as the one put everyone on board to reach the vision , and - a sort of "servant leader manifesto" that provides the guidelines in which the servant-leader moves.These guidelines are: - to serve first: to grow your team - to value relationships over status: my kids are more important than my CEO - to steward instead of owning: what will I leave when I die? - to share the power: the whole is bigger than the sum of the parts - to value the needs instead of the wants: see further, as far as possible - to provide a virtuous cycle of service: the ethical context of the vision of a better world

"Effective Teams – 10 Smart Tips That Will Make Them Happen"

Teams that are able to achieve superior results is one of the essential way to deal with increasing project complexities, tighter deadlines, rapid technology change and pressures to use resources in an increasingly efficient way. Simple synergy is no longer sufficient. The expectations are that the teams will be: - Competent and experienced - Adaptive and flexible - Effective and efficient Development of such teams requires a great effort and is often a long-term initiative. Therefore, it makes sense to identify what really makes the difference from the perspective of the team performance. In my presentation I will give you practical tips on: - Things that have an obvious impact on team performance but are not so easy to achieve. - Things commonly perceived as important, but with a rather disappointing or limited actual value. - Things that we tend to neglect, but they are absolutely essential. - Things that are a lot easier to achieve than we believe. - Things that we wrongly define and implement and consequently we spoil the teams instead of improving them. I will provide real-life case-studies and practical recommendations, tools or examples.

"Kreatywność Zamieniona Na… Liczby. Czyli O Sprzedawaniu Projektów Za Pomocą Opowieści"

Badanie HBDI określa, która część Twojego mózgu dominuje kiedy podejmujesz decyzje. Jeśli żyjesz w cyfrach, tabelkach i projektach jest spora szansa, że jesteś napędzany „kontrolą”. W przeciwieństwie do ludzi powszechnie uważanych za kreatywnych, których zwykle napędza „wizja”. Ale czy na pewno? Opowiem Ci o dwóch rodzajach kreatywności: dobrej i złej. Ta pierwsza w znacznym stopniu opiera się o… szablony. A to świetna wiadomość dla ludzi, którzy żyją w cyfrach i tabelach.

Inertia & Entropy, A Deadly Poison For The Organization And Its Remedy: Organizational Agility

In the implementation of Organizational Strategy, and its execution throughout Portfolio Management, companies encounter two major pitfalls: Organizational Inertia and Organizational Entropy. Organizational Inertia is the factor reducing the readiness and reactivity of an organization to confront its dynamic business environment. Organizational Entropy is the aspect reducing the level of control and blurring the strategic horizon. The combination of these two factors lead to ineffectiveness, wastes and inefficiencies. Let's explore how the PMO and the Portfolio governance must be structured to support the organization in countering these dreadful effects and gain Organizational Agility and Change readiness.

"Don't Let Anyone TRANSFORM Your Organization Let There Be Agile Formation Instead."

The traditional model of agile transformation has significant flaws and is very expensive. The Agile Formation process is designed to be a new model for bribing agility to an organization. A more organic approach that is designed to create a long term self-sustaining agile organization that is not dependent upon high paid consultants.

"Virtual Power Teams – How To Deliver Projects Quicker, Reduce Cost and Develop Your Organization For The Future!"

Nowadays many large Projects have their Team spread in several locations. The possibilities for physical meeting or face-to-face conversation in such Virtual Project teams are strongly limited. Often when a Projects team is dispersed they suffer delays and sometimes complete failure. Peter Ivanov is an international Manager and Virtual Teams Expert. His method “Virtual Power Teams” is proven in practice and has won multiple corporate awards among which are the "Best of the Best" in 2007 and the Global "IT Connect Award" in 2012. Using Peter’s techniques, you can deliver Projects quicker, reduce your cost significantly and develop your Organization for the Future!

"Podnoszenie Efektywności Zespołów Projektowych Metodą Formalną i Nieformalną. Wnioski z Pięcioletniego Eksperymentu"

Już w czasach starożytnych można znaleźć przykłady niezwykle sprawnej budowy obozów warownych przez legiony rzymskie, gdzie grupa wojskowych fachowców wykorzystując doświadczenia pokoleń i zorientowana na perfekcyjne wykonanie swojego zakresu prac doprowadzała do b. sprawnej i szybkiej realizacji zadań. Dwa główne podejścia do projektów kaskadowe i zwinne sugerują dwie drogi organizacji zespołów. Tworzenie formalnych zasad i samoorganizację. W eksperymencie trwającym od 2012 roku na 700 uczestnikach zmierzono wpływ obu tych podejść na efektywność zespołów. W trakcie wykłady zostaną przybliżone wnioski płynące z tego eksperymentu. W drugiej części wystąpienia przeprowadzony zostanie prosty eksperyment na publiczności ilustrujący nieformalny proces uczenia się zespołów poprzez komunikację i pozytywne przenikanie się wiedzy i doświadczeń, co finalnie prowadzi do wzrostu kompetencji i szybkości działania zespołów.

"Can Portfolio Management Strategy Really Stop My Headaches?"

In the last years, project management shifted from being a differentiator to a minimum requirement in project driven companies or departments. However, lack of individual solid view from a project is still providing headaches to the upper management who is more often seeking for a holistic and unified view. Having a portfolio perspective in place is not as simple as it sounds while including different corners stones into the already complex equation: global projects developed and implemented with multicultural blended teams split all around the world. In this direction, this presentation aims to differentiate best practices from challenges faced while designing and rolling out a global portfolio strategy in 5 continents and share the framework which is currently being implemented that covers the “complete chain”: from idea generation to benefit measurement.
