Truly Inspiring Projects – A review of pivotal projects, past practices & important lessons lost to time@ ProjectWorld*BusinessAnalystWorld Toronto 2013

This interactive full-day workshop examines projects that not only changed project management but the world around them. They went way beyond the deliverables, were innovative, ground breaking, overcame perceived insurmountable problems, and kicked off a sequence of changes in the societies they were part of. The workshop weaves a path through the course of history and examines ten of the most influential projects of all time. But the workshop goes beyond telling a nice story and examines the projects through the modern lens of project management and the PMBoK nine knowledge areas.

Through history there have been a number of inspiring projects, and this workshop examines a selection of these to specifically draw out practical project lessons to apply to today’s projects. These are projects where the whole was greater than the sum of its parts. Projects that were a catalyst for its sponsors and stakeholders, and left a legacy for and influenced other projects that followed. This interactive full-day workshop examines projects that not only changed project management but the world around them. They went way beyond the deliverables, were innovative, ground breaking, overcame perceived insurmountable problems, and kicked off a sequence of changes in the societies they were part of. The workshop weaves a path through the course of history and examines ten of the most influential projects of all time. But the workshop goes beyond telling a nice story and examines the projects through the modern lens of project management and the PMBoK nine knowledge areas. This allows participants to draw out patterns, techniques, and make comparatives to today’s projects. The workshop also examines the project leaders and their character traits, and the role they played in the project. Through exercises and video samples the workshop participants, working in groups, will be given a chance to use their skills to analyze core problems within the projects, play out what if scenario, and discuss what made these projects so transformational for the stakeholders and the society who reaped the benefits
