How to carry out a project with a maximally engaged and motivated team?

We are pleased to invite you to the event, which will take place on Wednesday, December 6, at 5 p.m. in the premises of Unija Računovodska hiša d.d., Tržaška cesta 515. Our guest will be Jaka Oman, who will share his knowledge about connection while working on projects, project management and achieving the state of flow, which represents the optimal state of consciousness.

Good energy, motivation and high commitment of the project team is something that every project manager wants and it is something that the manager can influence. There is a lot going on in the field of psychology and neurobiology behind our productivity and satisfaction with working on a particular project. The state of flow when we are most satisfied and productive is just one of the things that we certainly want the most and is something that has almost certainly shaped your best executed projects. But that's not all. In order to achieve the flow state of individuals and the group flow state of the entire team, it is necessary to respect certain laws related to skills and abilities, flow triggers and the flow cycle.

These very tools will be presented at the event in the context of project management and will help you on your way to better executed projects in the future.

Jaka Oman has dedicated his entire life to finding the flow state, although he didn't know it until 2020. He is the founder of Resna igra, the first Flow Research Collective certified flow coach in Slovenia and an experienced LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitator who has already taken his knowledge of flow and Lego bricks to 8 countries in the region at more than 120 workshops. He has already worked with several project managers and teams in various industries (events, product/service development, creative, pharmaceutical and IT).

Don't miss the opportunity to gain insight into the key elements of successful project management and discover how the flow state can contribute to exceptional project achievements. See you at the event!

The event is free, non-members are also welcome. The presentation will be held in Slovene.

Join us on Thursday, November 24, 2022, at 5 p.m. at the PM4Real project managers gathering, where we will explore multi-country and multi-site project management. The event will take place hybridly, live at Endava and via Zoom. By participating in the event, you will gain 2 PDU points.

Multi-country, multi-site project management can be a challenge due to the need to coordinate across different time zones, cultures, and infrastructure. However, some key things can be done to ensure a successful outcome. By being aware of the range of challenges and taking steps to address them, organizations can increase the likelihood of success that the project is delivered in full, on time, within budget and with satisfaction when undertaking a multi-country, multi-site project.

The presentation will include defining the objective, developing robust plans that take into account different time zones, cultures and infrastructure, and managing communication and expectations among stakeholders. We will include also a Case study of multi-site project management from Australia and outline the differences in project management in Europe and Australia.

As part of the Industry Innovation Lab Daša was lucky to use Design Thinking in practice and ever since she loves sharing its beauty of it with the world. One might think that Design Thinking is made for designers or for creative individuals & teams. However, it is far from the truth. Design Thinking is a framework that is complementary to the Agile framework and is becoming more and more popular in complex environments.  In the lecture, we will see how and why Design Thinking can add value to everyone when used in project management – project managers, product managers, engineers and customers – creating and resulting in better projects.

You are invited to the next PM4Real event Agile inside PMO - how to be collaborative?, which will be on Thursday, May 26, 2022, at 5 pm online.

PMO plays a vital role inside the organization towards the business excellence and organizational goal. Does the flavor of agile help to empower the organizational objectives? Mr. Mahesh says yes, agile concepts can ensure work is aligned with strategy, and teams work on the right thing, in the best way. In turn, an agile way of working maximizes value and minimizes risk for the enterprise.

Being agile means turning into creative problem-solvers, rapid responders, and iterative collaborators who turn feedback into innovation.

It is a fact that in today’s immediate and dynamic environment, a change from pure traditional PMO to little agile flavor, Mr. Mahesh says hybrid environment is always good for business success.

Join us and let’s together discuss how to be an agile collaborative.

Join us, on the next PM4Real event on Thursday, 21st of April 2022, at 5pm to explore how to deal with crisis and stressful times in project management. PM4Real is dedicated to PMs for practice sharing and networking.

We have also prepared a Zoom meeting for all those who will not be able to attend the meeting live.

The event is free of charge, non-members are also welcomed. Accreditation holders will receive 2 PDUs (1 strategic + 1 technical).

Not a single project is executed in a perfect way. On every project they are obstacles that must be overcome, if we want that project is successful. It is not necessary that we have a crisis moment in every project, but some stressful times are guaranteed. Pressure from stakeholders generates changes and changes increases the complexity of the management task, jeopardizing cost, and project certainty. That is why it is said that Project Manager (PM) is no doubt one of the most stressful jobs out there, as the PM is directly responsible and accountable for the success or failure of a project.

Some PMs believed that they can handle and cope with the high level of stress but there are some who are ignoring or refuse to recognize that they are under stress. The experience of stress is not only impacting the cognitive and behavioral performance, it can also have a negative impact on your personal health, wellbeing, and family life. You might not able to change the amount of stress you have on a daily basis, but you can change how you deal with it. It is important to manage the stress before it becomes more and more difficult to handle and manage.

Join us and let’s together discuss about stress and crises in project management.
