Are you tired of project management bickering? Confused by all the fancy methodologies and three-letter certifications? Want to get past the “my way or the highway” policy around projects? You are not alone. From Six Sigma to Scrum, the PMBOK® to Prince2 and Kaizen to Kanban, it turns out we have a lot more in common than not. Across the world of work, project leaders want to simply achieve business goals with as high a business impact as possible. In this entertaining session, we will sift through the buzzwords and project jargon to highlight the philosophical differences many approaches have. At times hilarious and other times reflective, this session will then reveal how our quirks and stereotypes as project leaders hide deeper truths we all hold dear.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to: (1) Identify common truths across teams and create initial and long-lasting alignment; (2) Construct strategies for a collaborative culture that will enable project throughput and desired outcomes; (3) Compose an action plan to develop a more productive dialog and Get. It. Done.
