July 24 – Webinar (PMI) – PMs’ Role in Promoting and Supporting Innovation

17 juil

PMI’s Innovation and New Product Development CoP with Rob Beachy and Dr. Harvey Robbins

"The Role of the Project/Program Manager in Promoting and Supporting Innovation"

24 July • 1-2 PM EDT / 19:00 CET/France

Innovation Road Sign with dramatic clouds and sky.Innovation and creativity are challenges at all levels of management, but who is responsible, and how do you encourage the level of innovation and creativity to achieve your goals and objectives.

The level of innovation and creativity is often determined by the Product Manager whose responsibility is to implement the corporate strategy that dictates the level of “newness” required to achieve well defined goals and objectives. These plans often range from line extensions to new to the world ideas.

The Project Manager has the role of managing minor changes and upgrades with known expected time lines and resources, while new to the world or new to the company creativity offers a unique challenge that requires roles that are more collaborative and challenging with no established reference time lines or processes.

The greater the innovation, the greater the challenge in Project and Program management as well as learning how to encourage and resource creativity

We will focus on the opportunities and challenges of more creative projects and programs to provide insights into best practices to achieve success.

PMI’s Aerospace and Defense Community of Practice

"(Big Data +TRIZ)=(Lean + Effective + Sustainable Innovation)" with Thomas Mc Nellis, PMP

1 May 2014 • 6PM ET/France

Project Managers are in the new age of intense data expansion: Data collection, storage, and analysis have never been easier.

big data PM NetworkWhy has optimization of that data toward lean, efficient and sustainable innovation (and competitive advantage) fallen short of expectations?

Mainly because Project Teams have more information to process than they are able to analyze during a normal project life cycle. So, sometimes those advantages from Big Data just don’t get leveraged into the right deliverable, and the result could be an outdated product at time of delivery.

Understanding how to optimize Big Data and Utilize key factors of TRIZ can equate to lean, effective and sustainable innovation in project deliverables.

This presentation provides insight into an integrated and structured approach for that innovation to become a reality.

In the world of project management, Innovation poses a real dilemma. We hear far too often the challenge: How do we balance the demands of getting our jobs done, managing projects on-time and on –budget, while embracing new ideas, innovation, creativity, ad-hoc decision making and adaptation to changing times?

In this webinar, Andrea J. Simon Ph.D., a corporate anthropologist and founder of Simon Associates Management Consultants, a Blue Ocean Strategist®, a trained facilitator and trainer in Innovation Games® and an expert in helping companies change their cultures, will discuss this challenge and give you some tools to use to help you diagnose your culture today and see if it is ready to become a more innovative culture for the future.

Find out more about:

  • What is a “Culture of Innovation”?
  • How does it differ from my company’s culture today?
  • What type of culture does it have?
  • What if you want a more Innovative Culture?
  • What does that mean?
  • How would you change your culture?
  • What would you do more of or less of? Start, stop or never change?
  • How do we ensure we manage those projects effectively within a culture of innovation?

Culture change is never easy. If you have a clear vision of a “Culture of Innovation” you can begin to start a journey to change your company’s culture and your own approach to project management to become more innovative and adaptive for changing times.

 IUT Annecy – Amphi F201 – 9 rue de l’Arc en Ciel – 74 940 Annecy le Vieux, France

Vous vous interrogez sur l’innovation dans votre entreprise. Cela suppose de définir ce que signifie le verbe innover et sur quoi porte l’innovation : produits, services, processus, projets.

À partir d’une typologie des innovations l’entreprise peut se repérer et trouver des cadres de validation de sa stratégie. Cette conférence vous permettra de connaître les grandes caractéristiques d’une entreprise innovante et d’identifier les critères d’évaluation de votre position d’innovateur dans la chaîne de valeur.

ideaCréer n’est pas obligatoirement innover et l’innovation ne se limite pas à une idée nouvelle, à de la production de connaissances, à la maîtrise d’une technologie ou d’un procédé, au dépôt de brevets même si ces éléments y contribuent.
