#403 Back to Basics to Build the Future: The Industrial Internet of Things Experience Centre
The Industrial  Internet of Things [(I)IoT] experience centre is a space where one can experience (I)IoT use cases of the present, future, and beyond. So what goes into managing or executing such a project?  Do we stick to our basics of project management or is there a shift in the way we build solutions? In this session, I will share my experience as a project manager, and the techniques I used to build the digital futuristic space.


At the conclusion of  this session, participants will be able to:
(1) define the steps involved in managing and executing IoT projects;  
(2) analyse why it is important to stick to the basics while being agile  and innovative—even in times of disruption.

#402 Stop Managing and Start Leading: The Engaging Leader
Have you ever encountered a ‘disengaged’ team member? How devastating would it be if your project team was full of disengaged employees?

Today’s project managers should coach, inspire, and motivate their teams to be more creative and go the extra mile.

(1) identify engaged and disengaged teams;
(2) apply learnings and activities to make the project team more engaged.

#412 Busting Myths and Misconceptions: How Governments Can Use Agile Methods to Improve Public Sector Project Delivery
There are a number of myths and misconceptions regarding agile methods in the project management profession. Agile is often considered to be a fluid method which only start-ups and small and medium-sized enterprises can access. As PMI’s Agile Practice Guide demonstrates, agile methods can be integrated into all manner of projects to improve outcomes. Governments across the world conduct complex projects where agile can be used to improve efficiency, improve focus, and cut waste. This session will explore the varying ways in which governments across Europe are using agile methods.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
(1) explain how government agencies are integrating agile methods into their projects;
(2) discuss how to better integrate agile methods into their own projects, large and small.
