Leadership and Soft Skills that Drive Project Success
Monday October 30 3:45pm to 5:00pm Credits: 1 PMI PDU, 1 IIBA CDU
Project Managers, Business Analysts, Scrum Masters and Product Owners alike, need specialized skills such as leadership, negotiation, team building, influence and more. They must also have the ability to think strategically, resolve conflicts, facilitate change, communicate effectively with multiple professional disciplines, and perform other related activities.
Based on my analysis of the PMI Triangle, IIBA BABOK, Agile/Scrum and ITIL, this talk outlines the specific types of leadership, interpersonal and business skills needed to enhance team harmony, maximize productivity and facilitate the teamwork needed to ensure project success and enrich professional growth.
