"The Role of the Project/Program Manager in Promoting and Supporting Innovation"
24 July • 1-2 PM EDT / 19:00 CET/France
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.

Dans un contexte économique caractérisé par une forte compétition et par l’innovation les entreprises cherchent à développer toujours plus rapidement des produits nouveaux. Dans ce contexte le management de projet est souvent présenté depuis 25 ans comme la panacée pour concilier l’innovation et les contraintes de coût, de qualité et de délai.
Lors de cette conférence nous nous proposons d’étudier les relations complexes entre projet et innovation, mais aussi la présentation de méthodes, d’outils et des cas pratiques.

"(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.
Why 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those advantages from Big Data just don’t get leveraged into the right deliverable, and the result could be an outdated product at time of delivery.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.
