The Role of Project Managers is to Manage for Outcomes

The Role of Project Managers is to Manage for Outcomes

Projects are only ever approved for one reason – to deliver value.  As project managers we have to not only understand that, we have to ensure we are helping to deliver that value.  And in today’s world that means embracing a lot of different approaches to delivering work.  Join us at 3pm on October 16th as ProjectManagement.com author and LinkedIn Learning instructor Andy Jordan discusses:

  • The role of project managers in managing for outcomes, not outputs
  • The evolution from projects to products and the impact on PMs
  • The skills and capabilities needed by today’s PMs if they are to achieve long terms success.

Andy’s upbeat style promises to challenge your current thinking while providing practical tools you can use to set yourself up for success.  Come armed with your questions and make this an engaging conversation that helps all of us prepare for an exciting future.
