IPMA laun­ches a new pro­duct and run a IPMA Global Best Prac­tice Week, planned for October 26 – 31, 2020. This fully online event shall focus on the post-pan­demic reco­very to build sus­tainable busi­ness prac­tices. Pro­ject mana­gers play a signi­fi­cant role in the great reset, as pos­tu­lated by the World Eco­nomic Forum.

IPMA will build the pro­gramme around the com­pe­tences despera­tely needed in these chal­len­ging times:

  • Lea­der­ship, trust and empathy
  • Agi­lity and flexibility
  • Change manage­ment (espe­ci­ally dis­rup­tive changes and speed of change)
  • Coa­ching and mentoring
  • Team­work (espe­ci­ally with dis­tri­buted teams)
  • Com­mu­ni­ca­tion (espe­ci­ally while working virtually)
  • Resourceful­ness, ima­gi­na­tion, inventiveness
  • Self-manage­ment
  • Diver­sity and inclu­sion (cul­ture, gender, age etc)
  • Con­flict resolution
  • Results ori­en­ta­tion
  • Stra­tegic thin­king and sustainability
  • Adap­ti­ve­ness taking les­sons learned into account

Three dif­fe­rent for­mats are planned: key­notes, clas­sical case pre­sen­ta­tions and masterclasses.

  • Key­notes shall be pro­vided by highly reco­g­nised lea­ders around the topic, key­notes shall last appro­xi­m­ately 30 minutes
  • Case pre­sen­ta­tions shall explain – based on real pro­jects – what the team has really done useful in the respec­tive topic, case pre­sen­ta­tion shall last appro­xi­m­ately 90 minutes
  • Mas­ter­classes is a format where a very limited number of par­ti­ci­pant work with an expert and other par­ti­ci­pants in the ses­sion on their own cases to excel, mas­ter­classes shall last half a day

To achieve the goal to run a highly pro­fes­sional online event we are loo­king for highly qua­li­fied spea­kers. They should be reco­g­nised experts, good pre­sen­ters and of course have the required lan­guage skills.

As a NGO, IPMA cannot afford paying spea­kers, but though, are you inte­rested to con­tri­bute to the event where we expect more than 3’000 par­ti­ci­pants? If so, please drop martin.sedlmayer@ipma.world a short descrip­tion of both topic and the format you would like to pre­sent, a short video and a brief note about your con­nec­tion to IPMA.
