Event description

Description

After a hugely enjoyable event in May with Patrick Kennerson explaining scope management, the PMI UK Yorkshire & Humber Branch now turns its attention to the thorny topic of managing the people who will ultimately deliver the outcomes of projects. To help us do this, we have organised an event with behavioural change expert Tony Llewellyn entitled "Spheres of Influence - Transforming behaviours for effective change".

A Successful project stands or falls on the skills and motivation of the people working on achieving a project's objectives. Project management is ultimately an exercise in social management and as projects grow in size and complexity it become increasingly important to focus on the interactions between the team, its sponsors and its stakeholders. With limited direct authority, the project leader must learn to shape attitudes and behaviours to ensure a successful outcome. This is often easier said than done.

The session will look at the art of influence and the factors that can be adjusted to improve team performance. Working through a number of simple models, you will learn tips and techniques that will help others adjust their mindset and to see the world from a different perspective. Managing people is an absolutely essential for every project manager so we are sure that this topic will be relevant and useful to both our core audience and also newcomers who wish to improve their professional skills and become better project managers.
