Earlier this week I presented a session on Influencing Across Organizational Boundaries to the Western Michigan chapter of the Project Management Institute. The session was so well-received that many people asked for copies of the Power Point presentation. Well, you know how that goes—a Power Point without the corresponding speaker commentary is a bit flat.
So, I created a modified version that excerpts a few key concepts. You can view it via SlideShare by clicking here.
Also, here’s a plug for the WMPMI group. They have a lot of really great things going on, including a brand-new event called THE Project 2012, which is a collegiate project management competition. I love it when our future business leaders help grow the talents of those coming along.
Here are a few photos from the event:
And look at this great book they gave me, Beyond Performance: How Great Organizations Build Ultimate Competitive Advantage. It’s authored by a couple of directors from the consulting firm McKinsey & Company, so it should be a good read. Look for a book review down the road.
Many thanks to the kind folks at WMPMI for your great hospitality and the wonderful things you are doing to promote professionalism in your discipline.
