PMI Nashville May 2017 luncheon – Topic: Alpha Project Managers with Andy Crowe

May 16 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Event Description:

  • Imagine having access to the top project managers from industries around the world. Imagine uncovering what they do, how they approach their challenges, and what they know. Author Andy Crowe did just that with The Alpha Study, a survey of over 5,000 project managers and stakeholders. Through in-depth interviews and discussions, the common attributes of the most elite project managers-from character and beliefs to organizational approaches-were uncovered and explored.
  • This presentation shares findings from the Alpha study, getting you inside the minds of the top managers (“Alphas”) and sharing their practices, attitudes, and secrets. It will explore eight areas where the top performers stand apart from everyone else: Attitude and Belief, Focus and Prioritization, Communication, Approach, Relationships and Conflict, Alignment, Issue Management, and Leadership.

Learning Objectives:

  • Find out how the top managers maximize their authority on a project and the impact that has on senior management.
  • Discover why the Alpha project managers are ranked as being nearly twice as responsive as the other 98% of project managers and the techniques they use to manage priorities to make their projects more successful.
  • Learn why 94% of all project managers rank themselves as being better communicators than their stakeholders do and ways for turning that around.
  • Find out how the top project managers leverage relationships, conflict, alignment, change management, leadership, and much more.
