Don't let project results get in the way of business results!
You can get by on end-dates and task lists handed down from on high... if you're lucky. But the really successful teams -- the ones management values -- go beyond all that. They understand business results. They know how their work impacts the bottom line. They understand how the project supports company goals (and what to do when it doesn't). They are business-driven, not project-driven, and even in the face of risks, uncertainties, conflict, and resource constraints, these teams get real results.

Every team can, and should, have this business-driven project focus. In this session, ProjectConnections founder Cinda Voegtli explains the particular mindset of these teams -- and the business-savvy Project Managers who lead them. Her rich, fast-paced, practical presentation illustrates how these PMs and teams think, behave, and operate, and how those techniques lead to compelling project returns. Using tools, advice, and interactive Q&A, she will show you how to adopt this business-minded attitude on your projects right away.

  • Understand the business-driven PM's compelling view of their role
  • Hear what executives really expect from the PMs they've entrusted with their business
  • Get Cinda's top 10 tools for establishing, quantifying, propagating, and protecting a project's business goals (and hear how she uses them)
  • Find out what it looks like for the PM and team to focus tirelessly on business results, not just project results, in every phase of the project

Learn how to use these easy-to-adopt techniques to make business purpose the life-blood of your projects so that critical business results will be realized at the end -- and making you a high-value, high-return project manager.
