The Project your managing, or a project in your Program, is causing major problems for the business and your name is all over it. This is when you demonstrate your leadership ability.Most Leadership webinars provide leadership information for sunny day situations, but a crisis is when you have to lead in a crisis. It is a given that preventative behavior is the best leadership to avoid the crisis, but sometime even with the best planning - it happens!

 “Jugaad”, an Indian word signifying improvisation has become a buzzword in management circles. Originally used by native users to solve their myriad problems in getting things done in day to day operations, it is now being adapted more systematically and formally as a method to improve and innovate. How does the concept and practice of “Jugaad” relate to formal project management principles and knowledge? Traditional project management through its bodies of knowledge has espoused a structured methodology. One of the main criticism on the emphasis of detailed planning has been its unsuitability to situations and projects which are uncertain or developmental in nature. This has given rise to methodologies like Agile and similar frameworks which indeed have become very popular in application and practice. ‘Jugaad’ principles and its practice can be viewed in multiple ways in relation to projects. It can be seen as a method similar to Agile, or as a method in crisis management and more importantly as a way of frugal innovation. In the current business scenario of a VUCA environment this has significance and it is worthwhile to investigate the pros and cons of using the ‘Jugaad’ way in implementing projects. This webinar will explain the practice of “Jugaad” by tracing its origin and deliberate on the current effort to use it as a formal management practice. It will also provide examples and applications where it can be gainfully used for managing projects.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic.  Given that action, you may be required to work at home given the continued spread of the coronavirus-19.  There is little doubt that is putting remote work to the biggest stress-test ever.  Clearly, it is taking place at unprecedented scale.  It has been in the news night after night and not likely to change anytime soon. 

Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft have all been taking part, and the list continues to grow. Based on the latest briefings and news reports, this trend will progress for weeks, if not months.  A few surveys of employees that work at home feel they are just as productive as they were when they went into the office.  Some actually feel they should work more given they do not have commute time and expense.

From a very early age, we were all practicing the agile mindset, and without even knowing it. For instance, learning to walk. We tried. We fell. We got up. We repeated the cycle over and over and over. It required resilience, optimism and determination to learn from failure. We were fearless: We had never walked before and had no proof that we would ever be good at it. Then one day, we mastered it and achieved our goal. It was this achievement that started our agile journey through life. The agile mindset is something we already know, so teaching it is easier than we might have thought. Emotional intelligence is key in transitioning to our agile mindset.
