While we, as project managers, may know how to manage, plan and estimate in an assembly line like culture, how can we estimate confidently for a process that is circular, dynamic and emerging? How can we promise the delivery of value to our customers by set dates and allow change, discovery, and innovation to happen? Is Agile the answer to all these questions?

This presentation will address the following:
• Understand how to manage knowledge work project compared to project management for task-work oriented projects.
• Describe the ecosystem that needs to exist for people to be engaged and innovate (Leadership, Strategy, Structure, Process and People)
• Present the role of project managers modeling the desired behavior in changing the way people think and act.
• Explain the importance of education in the work of the Project Manager
• Discuss how project managers can inspire performance and engagement through leadership
