Presentation Title: Project Execution Excellence – Collaboration Across the Generations

This presentation addresses proven techniques and methods for planning and managing projects with multi-generational stakeholders using collaborative techniques. Experience has shown that multi-generational stakeholders require unique and specialized managerial techniques. During the planning and execution, projects encounter the impacts of society’s dynamics. Experience and expertise shortfalls result from workforce retirements without suitable replacements. Generation-related changes in collaboration and expectations impact managerial methodologies / skills. Project management best practices are dynamic and use of best practices must be factored into your planning process.

In a recent project management team, we had multi-generational stakeholders. Ranging from Generation Z though Millennials, Generation X, Baby Boomers and (yes!) older; these stakeholders had to be cobbled together into a functional project management team. Managerial techniques had to be adjusted. This presentation includes proven successful managerial techniques for planning and execution management of these Multi-Generational Projects. Case studies of successful management experiences will be presented. Multi-Generational Projects can be successfully managed when the optimal managerial approaches are used. Challenges can be converted to success using the techniques offered in this presentation.
