Presentation Description

Description of Topic/Presentation:

Is it possible to unleash innovation with project management? You can allow your team to experiment by creating constraints for them to work within, allowing them to test ideas and leverage small steps toward transformation. This session will cover three steps for leveraging your team's knowledge. Once your team has these dialed in, it is time to practice, practice, practice. This can help foster the “Creative Mindset”. Join us to see how you can lead your team to innovation.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Determine the proper team constraints for innovation.
  • Create an experimental process with fast feedback.
  • Instill the “Creative Mindset” along with transformational practices.
