Project management is also about managing the team, the people involved and all their expectations. But who are all those people?
This event is useful for you if you work within projects (with project managers, project sponsors, project clients…)
- Learn the difference between stakeholder mapping and an organization chart
- Understand how your stakeholders might help or hamper you
- Learn the different main communication methods in projects and why you might choose one above the other
Project management is not only about making sure the numbers are right but also about managing the team, the people involved and all their expectations. But who are all those people? And what is their role? Most often a project team works with a strict organization chart but that does often not include all stakeholders. But it’s often those stakeholders outside of your project organization that can make or break your project.
In this inspiration session we’ll scratch the surface of stakeholder management and communication.

We have to trust each other, dare to take risks, dare to face failure, share mistakes, give feedback and learn from them.
If an organization really wants to do well in a world where innovation can make a difference, it’s not enough to have smart, motivated people on your team. We have to make sure that those talented people can use their knowledge at critical moments. We have to trust each other, dare to take risks, dare to face failure, share mistakes, give feedback and learn from them. Psychological safety is at the heart of this. In a psychologically safe team we are not hindered by the fear of being rejected, of making mistakes, of embracing feedback and trusting each other, but learning and implementing ‘on the go’. The secret ingredient of strong teams? Common ground. When we spend time making agreements about how we work together, how we make mistakes and what everyone needs to do best in the team, we create a framework to make this ‘common ground’ explicit, making ‘Fail Fast Forward’ the new standard.
During this virtual learning journey we will lay the first foundations of a ‘common ground’ within and across teams.
• How do you turn a group of people into a team?
• Build a common ground: › What does the team purpose look like? › How are we going to achieve our goals? › What team standards do we set?
• Fail fast… What?! What does science say about psychological safety?
• Break-out exercise: how do we install this Fail Fast Forward culture? With feedback in the group.
• To what extent do we take individual preferences into account? An introduction to the SCARF model.

The purpose of this is course is to help you understand why we make human errors, how to reduce them and what good companies do about it.
In a short journey Kris Van Impe will explain to you what Human Error is and what it isn’t. This will put some light on why we make human errors. How do we do something about reducing them. How good industries do something about it. How can we systematically take care of those Human Error related root causes. Finally, let’s practice on our own environment.

My affection for Continuous Improvement and Lean started when I worked for General Motors Belgium, 20 years ago.
Later on I worked at Pfizer where I had the chance of developing my skills in Operational Excellence and where I was trained to become Master Black Belt.
At Pfizer I had the pleasure of improving my knowledge of Human Error Reduction, Lean and Six Sigma. Training, coaching and deploying programs in all those disciplines for Pfizer Belgium, and sometimes also other Pfizer sites in Europe, was my job and my hobby at the same time.
After a period of working as freelance where I gave some training sessions for Pauwels Consulting and other companies, I started working for Pauwels with a project at Biocartis. During that time I continued working on all kinds of OpEx related subjects for Pauwels and for Biocartis.
Over all those years I’ve been attracted to everything regarding OpEx and my passion is turning into an addiction!
