Join the PMO roundtable with Aleksandr Sorokin for our April session on Power and Politics in Project Management. Meeting is at Polcari’s in Woburn from 6:30-7:30pm. Details in mcentric.
“Without power, project managers can accomplish very little. As organizations and projects have become more complex and as project managers become more dependent on more and more persons over whom they no have formal authority, they increasingly need power to influence the behavior of others. There can be no argument that effective performance by project managers requires them to be skilled at the acquisition and use of social power.”
Yourker, Robert (1991). Power and politics in project management. PM Network, 5(4), 36–40.
Сonsequently, the purposes of this workshop are:
1. To study various forms of social power such as positional, informational, relational, situational, etc. and about methods to create resources (and power) from scratch.
2. To learn about an interrelationship between resources and power and about methods to create resources (and power) from scratch.
3. To introduce VRIO (Value, Rareness, Imitability, Organization) Analysis as a framework for the evaluation of a project manager’s resources and capabilities.
4. To discuss best practices for project managers on how to acquire and use power.
