James Barr, Senior Consultant, Self-insight Ltd.
This session presents a brief overview of where knowledge of psychology can benefit the project manager at various points in the life-cycle (e.g. selecting staff, leading and motivating a team, influencing stakeholders, resilience, innovation etc).

James encourages taking an evidence-based approach and giving critical consideration to models and solutions before adopting them. He then focuses on providing a basic understanding of underlying cognitive and neuroscience processes which can help project managers become more self-aware and effective in problem solving, decision making and approach to risk.

Ruth Phillips, Head of Service Delivery, FGI Training & Consultancy
People deliver projects; not processes, technologies or tools. It’s no coincidence that those organisations that recognise and invest in the development of their people report more successful project delivery performance. However, many organisations still lack an enterprise-wide approach to knowledge management and talent development, particularly related to project management.

This session looks at strategies for improving and sustaining individuals’ project management skills and competencies and how to create an organisation-wide culture of sharing and learning lessons to drive project success and reduce the risk of failure.
