    Easier Planning, Sharper Delivery, Better Results

    We continue our programming this fall with a topic focused on how we can be more effective in influencing key decision makers.  Our September program, Easier Planning, Sharper Delivery, Better Results, is an interactive exploration of how to work behind-the-scenes and in front of the room to package and deliver a message for maximum impact. 

    Make sure that your next high-level presentation hits the mark.  Planning and budgeting season is almost upon us so bring your own idea for a development plan, a change management project, or other major effort and learn how to package your presentation to increase your impact and influence with major decision makers.  You’ll learn how to prepare your audience for buy-in, create a political map to identify support/resistance, structure your message effectively, and use appropriate body language to deliver a winning message.  When you leave this program, you’ll be on the path toward a high-level presentation that will bring you closer to next year’s program objectives.

    Focused Performance: An Evening with Lou Russell

    Choosing strategic technology does not guarantee that you'll be able to reap the efficiency rewards. Whether virtual learning, communities, or management systems, most technology implementations fail to deliver the ROI the business needed.

    In this session, you will learn how to prioritize strategies, translate the strategies into projects assigned to a single project manager, and then create a dashboard for each project using an actionable plan with one task, one date, and one name for all work to be done. As a special bonus, you will also receive a copy of an e-book with reusable tools to leverage this process at home.

    After attending this session, you will be able to:

    • Strategically say "yes" (to the most important work) and say "no" (to work that you shouldn't be doing right now)
    • Move systemically from strategy to project accountability, ensuring that business goals are met even in the chaos of today's workload
    • Manage the capacity of your team and create realistic workloads to ensure that your staff are engaged and productive
    • Drive project accountability by breaking a project into one task, one name and one date
