Motivation, worker behavior, and efficiency studies have been conducted since the industrial revolution. Management scientists like Abraham Maslow, Frederick Herzberg, and David McClelland all conducted studies in an attempt to better understand what truly motivates the average worker. These findings and additional studies from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and PME’s own survey of project managers and team members will all be discussed to further understand how to tap into the human psyche and position our project team members to be increasingly focused and productive. You will leave with a list of lessons learned and some actions to create a truly satisfying and productive project environment. This unique perspective considers the role of the whole team member and not just the “worker bee” that comes to work every day. In addition the session explores management’s responsibility in creating a productive work environment.

About the PM Industry Insights

PM Industry Insights is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.

These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc. 

Both PM Industry Insights and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
