How to Turn Diverse Perspectives into Business Value
"We maximise project success to elevate our world."
Join us for a session with Dr Paul Wong, an engineer, business consultant, and startup founder on a mission to help project teams deliver impact effectively. This session explores how increasing uptake of AI will shape project delivery. Sign up now to ensure your spot.
Dr Paul Wong is an engineer, business consultant, and startup founder on a mission to help project teams deliver impact more effectively. He is currently the Chief Product Officer at JourneyLab, an innovative program management and governance platform designed to support data-driven decision making.
Paul has worked with a wide cross-section of organisations – across multiple industries, public and private sector, and scale-ups to large departments – and stakeholders at all levels, from delivery teams to boards. Although the challenges faced by all of them are increasingly complex, the approaches for delivering impact are often common. His ambition is simple: to help people realise and apply these approaches so they can improve their corner of the world.
Based on his recent talk at PMI Global Summit 2023 in Atlanta, this intentionally non-technical session explores the interplay between individual perspectives, organisational alignment, and how the increasing uptake of AI will shape project delivery.
We’ll start with a short discussion on different perspectives and tactics for getting project teams on the same page. Next, we’ll zoom out to the organisational level and share a framework for getting alignment across a business – particularly useful for program managers and PMOs who want to be more strategic. Finally, we’ll take an industry-wide lens and explore the likely impact of AI on our profession.
- Make sure you and your team are doing the right things, not just doing things right. The key to this is one simple habit: Step back before stepping forward.
- AI cannot predict the unknowable future, but it can help you react faster and in a more targeted way.
- There will always be a need for human decision making. The most important things you can do now are:
- 1) learn about the strengths and limitations of AI systems, to help you understand where you will add value, and
- 2) start integrating these new technologies into your own workflow so you can adapt how you work sooner rather than later.
