Listening to the unstated - why it is critical for project manager to look beyond the obvious
The difference between a good project manager and a not so good one is the ability to look at the space between the obvious RAG rules and status and interpret what is really going on. It can be called intuition, instinct, a gut feeling, a hunch, a sixth sense, proactive foresight, or anticipatory futures literacy.
This active workshop will introduce PMI Sydney members and guests to a number of approaches that come from Anticipatory Futures Research. Tools and mindsets that can be used to increase your personal level of anticipation and responsiveness in projects as well as tools that generate participatory and collective input. There will be an opportunity for participants to share their own approaches to ‘looking beyond the obvious’ and how this can be applied to bringing richer project status intelligence and better value to the business and the community.
