Speakers: Tricia Steege of Transformation Strategies will conduct the morning presentation on Mastering Change with Effective Stakeholder Engagement and Carl Pritchard of Pritchard Management Associates will present the afternoon presentation on Risk Management-It's Easier (and more positive!) than You Think.

Mastering Change with Effective Stakeholder presentation will cover how your key stakeholders are an important part of your project implementation success. During times of complex change, they have a lot of things competing for their attention.  Your ability to complete your project, on time and within budget is highly dependent upon your abilities to effectively manage your stakeholders and keep them engaged with you and your project.  Successfully managing your stakeholders means having a solid understanding of what is personally important to them; including an intimate knowledge of their level of interest in your project, their ability to influence its success and how they personally deal with change.

Solid stakeholder relationships don’t just happen. It takes intentional planning on your part as a project manager. 

This workshop will introduce strategies that ensure your stakeholders are actively partnering with you to influence the successful implementation of your projects.

Learning Objectives:

·       Define the stakeholder and project managers role in stakeholder engagement

·       Describe the purposes of a concrete Stakeholder Engagement Strategy

·       Discuss the considerations to be addressed in developing an effective Stakeholder Engagement Strategy

·       Conduct a stakeholder analysis for the project

·       Keenly manage project stakeholders through the life of the project

Risk Management-It's Easier (and more positive!) than You Think presentation on Risk Management is, in some organizations, a taboo topic. It is negative.  It is all the bad things that may happen, and the impacts they may cause.  It drifts from free-floating anxiety to specific, narrow fears.   This presentation will help dispel those misconceptions and provide a painless, and yet effective, process to get you from your current state of risk management to one where team members are more likely to contribute and where risks are genuinely being managed. 

Learning Objectives:

·       The ability to draw out risks without the negative overtones

·       A clear understanding of who the "risk owner" should be (and it's rarely "you")

·       The capacity to build a project charter that embeds risk management from the start with one simple paragraph

·       Insight on the most common project risk, and some first steps to manage it

·       A renewed respect for fire prevention experts, rather than firefighters
