#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.

#410 From Business Case to Realising Benefits: A Case Study of the Journey
**An encore of this session is available on Wednesday, 9 May, 12.30 [#613].

In its starkest form, a business case is no more than an evaluation of costs and benefits to see if the change is worth it. There must be agreement about what needs to be done, how much is worth spending to get it done, and how value can be measured at the end. The project/programme is the formalised conduit for achieving this using the business case as the control document throughout.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
(1) manage the business case as the control document for delivering requirements and benefits—and the tools for measuring them;
(2) demonstrate the value of the business case in maintaining the thread for the stated benefits (and more) to be realised.

#421 Engaging Stakeholders: Whose Job Is It Anyway?
We never hear about ‘outsourcing’ the human side of projects to a third party. Rather, they incorporate principles of leadership, team building, and stakeholder engagement into project management practices and standards. Good project management relies not just on managing requirements, but also on managing change and ever-evolving stakeholder needs. Crises come without notice. Are you equipped to get the good, the bad, and the ugly stakeholders to buy-in?


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
(1) demonstrate the skills necessary to address the myriad issues affecting stakeholder engagement and change adoption;
(2) identify tools and techniques for better stakeholder engagement as well as strategies for obtaining stakeholder buy-in.

CANCELLED - #422 Wisdom of Governance, Path to Success
This session is focused on presenting a programme governance framework, Contingent Governance Framework for Programs, which is adaptable to the context of the programme. In order to be effective, the governance frameworks have to adapt to the evolving programme context. This will result in provisioning of effective organisational oversight that will assist the programme in delivering its objectives, instead of creating additional layers of reporting, resulting in delayed decisions and an inefficient working environment.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
(1) explain the impact of context and situation in governance of projects and programmes;
(2) design and implement a governance framework for programmes that is sensitive to the programme's context.

#505 Apply Your Strengths to Build Productive Teams
**This workshop includes 45 minutes of pre-work.  Space is limited - reserve your seat!

Decades of research have proven that when people are given the opportunity to do what they do best every day, the effect on the individual, team, and organizational performance is powerful. The problem is that most people aren’t able to accurately identify their own strengths and therefore can’t intentionally use them.

In this interactive workshop, you will learn more about the research behind a strengths-based approach to leadership and management.

Pre-work
In order to maximize the learning from this workshop, participants will need to complete a personal StrengthsFinder Assessment in advance of attending this workshop. Once completed, you will need to bring a copy of your assessment results to this workshop. Details regarding how to complete this assessment will be emailed to participants once your reservation to attend has been received.

Space is limited.


At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
(1) identify how you use your innate talents and learn how to focus on your strengths in a weakness-based world;
(2) explain what you bring to a team and where to form complementary partnerships to be more effective.

Current research shows that there are methodologies that can be used to reduce lead time and increase value creation of projects by 30% or more. Join this presentation to learn about the three core elements of the half-double methodology so that you can lead your projects to double the impact in half the time.


At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
