The fourth meeting of our Project Management Forum, part of Renaissance Executive Forums – Indiana (REF-IN), was held this past Thursday. We followed our tried and true format for the meeting:
- Educational Component: Conflict Resolution
- Focused Topic: Strategic Direction for our Forum
- Round Table Topic
There were ten of us total in attendance, which included myself and Tony Hutti, CEO of REF-IN. We started with our educational component discussion on Conflict Resolution and there was a lot of great discussion and examples. As is the norm for my training sessions, we completed an exercise that provides practice and learning opportunities. It was a great 75 minutes of energy and sharing from this dynamic group.
Next, we moved on to our focused topic, purposely determined to be picking the strategic direction for our forum. We used a SWOT analysis approach, and came up with many future educational component and round table topics to help us resolve challenges in our organizations, as related to executing projects.
We finished up with a round table topic and discussion that was well received. I love being able to share my passion for project management with those who recognize the importance of project leadership and execution.
