#416 The Flow of Time Is an Illusion: Sign an Energy-Based Contract
One of the main concerns of project managers is keeping their projects on schedule. The difficulty in managing project duration may be mitigated, thanks to understanding the nature of time and the application of the physics theories that explain that time, as an independent concept, has no place in physics. Learn how the PMBOK® Guide helps you to deliver a kinetic energy of change, making your customers happy—even when you are late.

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
(1) utilise resource allocation and deliver their projects on time;
(2) practice transparency in the network of relations between stakeholders.

#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.
