Business today is more complex than ever before. In turn, the project-based work that powers an organization’s strategic initiatives is also increasing in complexity. Project leaders often link the complexity they’re experiencing to a specific project or problem to be solved. However, the reality is that the complexity stems from unanticipated market shifts and unpredictable industry disruptions in the environment.
Join Duke Corporate Education’s Global Head of Duke CE Labs, Tony O’Driscoll, and Strategy Execution’s Vice President of Product Management, Jonathan Gilbert, as they discuss the different contexts in which project leaders may be operating and how they can shift their mindset and apply new methods to ensure successful execution.
This webinar will allow you to:
• Understand the effects of complexity on companies and projects
• Assess the context in which you’re operating and explain why it matters
• Define the most successful leadership approach to match your operating context
• Explore a model for making sense of complexity through perceiving, sensemaking, and choreography
• Identify high leverage progression paths to execute against
By learning how to negotiate the chasms caused by changing environments, adaptive project leaders can execute their organization’s strategies more effectively to drive real business results.
