PROJECT EVEREST Reaching New Heights in Project Management

Module 1 - Keynote:  “Project Everest: Hybrid Agile Strategies for Reaching New Heights in Project Management”

Abstract: Built around the two years of planning and two months of climbing that went into making the project of reaching the summit of Mount Everest a reality for Alan and three other members of his immediate family. It is an engaging visual and educational journey with project management tools, strategies, and examples that attendees can put into action to make positive changes in their professional and personal lives.

Module 2:  “Managing Risk in the Face of Uncertainty”

Abstract: This interactive session focuses on identifying, understanding and managing project risks. Discernment about relative impacts should risk be realized is crucial as is attempting to quantify the likelihood based on historical data and other sources. Alan draws parallels from mountaineering challenges that allow project managers to better approach risk management in their own projects.

Module 3:  “Emotional Intelligence for Managing Diverse and Complex Teams”

Abstract: This session focuses on psychological and emotional considerations that influence project leaders and teams. Alan’s philosophy of life revolves around living proactively rather than reactively and he has infused his proactive approach into the tools, strategies, discussions and activities that he shares throughout his engaging session on emotional intelligence for project managers.
