PMI Galleria Meeting

Pre-Dinner Meeting: "Process Mapping: How to Skillfully Apply this Vital Tool"
Michel Rudel
Insightology Business Solutions
Michael Rudel has spent the majority of his 25+ year career in the oil & gas specialty chemical market. Starting as a research chemist, he progressed through technical management roles supporting applications such as scale prevention, hydrate and paraffin inhibition, and bacterial control. A turning point in his career was participating in his company’s SAP implementation, exposing him to the end-to-end business cycle and sparking a passion for improving performance through the business process. His background includes process improvement & design, business analysis, project management, and governance. Michael is interested in traditional project management as well as Agile & Scrum. 

Topic Description:

Successful project management not only requires a well-stocked toolbox but also skilled use of those tools. For many projects, an essential tool is the mapping of business processes. Process mapping can be used as an analytical tool to aid the diagnosis of performance issues as well as designing a future state. This presentation will illustrate how to use process mapping in a skilled manner that is both simple and practical.

Dinner Meeting: "Elements of Risk Management: Insights & Ideas from Prospect Theory & Psychology"

Rashid N. Kapadia, DTM, PMP
Necessary Bridges, Inc.

Rashid N. Kapadia, DTM, PMP, is a speaker, project manager, engineer, consultant, and author of “Necessary Bridges: Public Speaking & Storytelling for Project Managers & Engineers”. Today he is an evangelist for “Eloquence”, “Public Speaking, &
Storytelling”, FLOW”, and for “Regular & Disciplined Reading”.


Rashid is a lifelong student and an avid reader—committed to reading a minimum of 50 non-fiction books every year. He is constantly on the lookout for new knowledge that can be converted into speeches to solve problems, and be used to uplift professionals and professions.


He was educated in both India and the US and has earned multiple degrees and certifications. He has worked in the merchant marine, maritime and offshore industries as an engineer, manager, project manager, and in business development. In 2015 he published his book and founded Necessary Bridges, Inc.

Topic Description: 

In this talk, Rashid will look at some significant failures in business, international affairs, industry, and finance (Enron, 2008 Financial Crisis, Eisenhower U-2 crisis, Plane Crashes, Cuban Missile Crisis) and argue that these were also failures of risk management.

Rashid will then offer some approaches and new language from Prospect theory and Psychology (the domain of gains, the domain of losses, inattentional blindness, motivated blindness, slippery slope) to better understand and prepare for similar events.

He will discuss some of the work of “Decision Making” expert Max Bazerman about the Power of Noticing. He will discuss some of the work of “Risk & Intuition” expert Gerd Gigerenzer about Intuition and Heuristics.

He will also offer solutions from business expert Jim Collins to help leaders, and managers to manage risk better.

He will close with an unusual argument that Risk Management is also an Unending Campaign and that it would be most worthwhile for leaders and risk managers to acquire skills in persuasion, (convince, charm, cajole) campaigning, and public speaking.
