Topic Description: Project Manager as an Entrepreneur

The PMBOK has clear definitions for both operations and project management.  The difference between these two leads many in our project management community to draw a clear distinction between the types of people who might make good project managers vs. good operations managers.  For instance, those who thrive in predictable, broad-focused, continuous improvement environments may lean into operations roles, while those with a propensity for unique, objective-focused, defined-end-state environments might succeed in the project roles. Project Managers who have an entrepreneurial mindset bridge many of the gaps between operations and projects and have statistically demonstrated a higher success rate than many of their purely project-focused counterparts.  

Learning Objectives:

1. Introduce you to the particular skills of these entrepreneurial project managers

2. Provide some guidelines for the PMO to enhance these skills in the organization

3. Show you how to recruit these entrepreneurial types into your team
