Speakers for this Professional Development Event are;
- Michele Brown – President, United Way of Anchorage
- Topic: Leadership and Collective Impact
- Michele's presentation is about Collective Impact. It brings people together, in a structured way, to achieve social change. People come together to collectively define a problem and create a shared vision to solve it. It is data-driven and establishes shared measurements, which allows for accountability and continuous improvement. It fosters mutually reinforcing activities. Coordinating collective efforts to maximize the end result rather than working in isolation. It encourages continuous communication, building trust and relationships among all participants and honest assessment of best practices. To make all this happen, there needs to be a strong backbone. That means having a team dedicated to orchestrating the work of the group. That’s where project management skills are needed, to facilitate all of these conditions which together produce extraordinary results. Collective impact takes us from common goals to uncommon results.
- Jim Bates – Dir. of Enterprise Technology Services - State of Alaska
- Topic: Leading Project Time Management
- Jim will be speaking on Leading Project Time Management.Project leadership has become more in demand as executives realize that projects are one of the most important ways that organizations achieve their strategic goals. Project Time Management is one of the three most critical constraints considered in achieving project success and ultimately project quality delivery. We will explore ways that project managers can use leadership skill to help lead, manage, and deliver timely projects.
- Walter Almon - Team Lead, Operation Mech. Civil & Lifting at BP
- Topic: Stakeholder Engagement and Collaboration
- Walt will discuss “Stakeholder Discussions - Stories”. The new rage in project management is to recognize and utilize stakeholder engagement and collaboration. In projects, the stakeholder can be an individual or organization that is actively involved, affected by, or influences the successful outcome of a project. As project managers, cost estimators, planners, construction managers, we are actively involved stakeholders in our Projects.
- Dr. Ginger Blackmon – Professor, UAA
