Upcoming Events


In this two-day course, you'll gain a deep understanding of Scrum principles and practices, as well as the role of the ScrumMaster in leading and facilitating Scrum teams. You'll also learn how to effectively apply Agile project management techniques and foster collaboration between cross-functional teams to drive successful project outcomes. With your Certified ScrumMaster designation, you'll be equipped to contribute to the adoption and implementation of Scrum methodology in your organization.

Much of a leader’s work is accomplished through daily conversations with team members and others. These interactions, especially the tough ones, often involve intensely personal feelings (on both sides) that have an impact on the practical outcome of the conversation and the personal connection between the leader and the person. The leader’s level of emotional intelligence—the ability to manage oneself and one’s relationships—is a critical factor in the success of these tough conversations.
Coaching: Move People Forward shows leaders how to flex their approach to meet the unique needs of the people they're coaching, right where they are, and guide them in successfully achieving a goal. To have this kind of positive impact takes a trusting relationship, and that means coaches must have a better understanding of the other person and themselves.
This month, our focus is on the pivotal aspect of project planning, an essential skill that sets the tone for project success. As project managers, we wear multiple hats and navigate through various methodologies, including waterfall, agile, and SAFe, to ensure seamless execution.
In this discussion, we’ll uncover some of the applications of technology that drive the value of data for business and personal advantage.  This roundtable will explore the evolution of machines for use in automation, real-time analysis, natural language processing, and the implications to human lives.
This month we will discuss the challenges of finding & managing trusted partners. Likewise, managing “necessary” yet possibly untrusted vendors is often a reality as well. It is also important to recognize that, while you may be paying the bills, any partnership that matters is a two way relationship that your organization has a vital role in.
