Complexity & Fun in Project Management!
On first glance this might be seen as a contradiction; it’s not always easy to regard upon complex situations as fun situations. The ever increasing market demands affect everybody. Keeping control of projects is a continuous challenge for a project manager.
How to deal with technological and organizational complexity will be discussed on October 25 during two interactive presentations, held by Karin Rosch – Group Leader Project Management at VDL ETG Technology & Development BV and Roel Wessels – Sr. Senior Director Projectmanagement & Technology at Holland Innovative BV and author of ‘De Complete Projectmanager’.
Karin will focus on the characteristics of projects at VDL ETG, a contract manufacturer, and the expectations towards project managers working in such a complex environment.
Roel will interview VDL project managers to see how they manage their challenges with fun. Roel will also challenge the audience to think about the complexity and possibilities in today’s project management.
This session will take place on October 25 and is hosted by VDL ETG Technology & Development, De Schakel 22 | 5651 GH | Eindhoven | Building AQ1.
