Project Leadership

Where Art Meets Science

One of the true tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency. 

 – Arnold Glasow

Project leadership – where art meets science is designed to take the essential principles of project management (the science) and puts them in the context of human-centered design principles, focusing on the essential alignment of the people that will collaborate to successfully complete the work (the art!).

This unique program is for individuals, teams and organizations that are looking to embed essential project management skills from the critical perspective of collaboration and leadership. The program introduces participants to a series of powerful tools and techniques that allows project managers to develop the essential leadership routines to drive desired outcomes in project execution. Most importantly, the tools and techniques can be used immediately with positive impact.
