6th Annual PMI Westchester Professional Development Day: The Entrepreneurial PM

What type of manager does it take to really drive a project forward? What do you call a manager who confronts risks and issues instead of merely managing them? One who imbues the team with a vision and leads them to success?

Project managers who excel in this way have adopted the Entrepreneurial Mindset. They have a personal stake in the projects they manage and they are driven to see their projects succeed. Like other entrepreneurs, they are drawn to opportunity, innovation and new value creation - and are willing to take calculated risks and can accept and deal objectively with change and uncertainty. As a leader they get the “big picture” but they also know how to build a team that will sweat the details.

Our 2015 PDD Keynote Speaker Frank Wander, CEO of PeopleProductive.com and former Guardian Life CIO, will explore the special skills of the Entrepreneurial Project Manager. He will share his thoughts on what this means for today’s project managers. We will learn about how we can develop that leadership mindset for the projects we manage and how we can socialize entrepreneurship into our organizations to build lasting project success.

Earn up to 8 PDUs by attending the PMIW Professional Development Day. Breakfast, lunch, snacks, all conference materials (including books and handouts), and special gifts will be provided.
