Applied Behavioral Project Management – Designed around the Grey Matter.

Why wouldn’t we design project management processes around the human brain? People run projects, people are part of projects and people influence project success. Economics, finance, and supply chain management have recognized the human factor by embedding behavioral sciences throughout their technical disciplines. Now, it’s project management’s turn. Mastering human factors gives us the ability to decrease risk and project cost, increase plan accuracy, and increase execution efficiency. Human factors empower project success in the midst of volatility, disruption, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity.
Dr. Jodi Wilson and Joshua Ramirez will help us harness the power of applied behavioral project management to nudge us towards effective project design and decision making. They are world renowned experts on Neuro & Behavioral project management and recently presented at the 2018 PMI Global Conference at Los Angeles.

This is an online presentation being fully sponsored by the PMI Chicagoland chaper.
