Project Learning Webinar on 6 November: Register Today!

10 October 2018 to 7 November 2018

On 6 November at 5:00 p.m. Eastern, PMI Sponsored Researcher Anna Wiewiora will present an hour-long webinar on her research, entitled “Building Project-Based Learning Organizations: 10 Mechanisms Influencing Project Learning.”

This webinar, available at ProjectManagement.com, is open to everyone, including students, faculty, researchers, and practitioners. Viewers are eligible for 1 PDU. There is no cost for the webinar; viewers only need a free account on ProjectManagement.com. You can register here.

The webinar will take a close look at Project Learning, which is a vital prerequisite for innovation as it directly contributes to project and organizational capability development. Project learning occurs on the individual, team, and organizational level. However, how organizations facilitate the transfer of learning between the individual, project, and organizational levels remains limited.

As more organizations become project-based, there is an emergent need to understand how these organizations can overcome challenges of disruptive learning cycles caused by project temporality and employee mobility. This webinar will present key findings from the PMI sponsored research investigating mechanisms influencing learning flows between individuals, project and the parent organization.

The webinar will focus on presenting 3 notable contributions from the research that informed project management literature and practice. This research:

  • identified 10 bridging mechanisms for multilevel learning that project-based organizations can utilize to encourage learning from and to projects
  • established that 3 key actors: senior leaders, project managers and project management office play crucial role in activating project learning flows, and engaging individuals, teams and organization to participate in learning efforts.
  • developed a new leadership scale to measure leaders behavior focused on promoting project learning.
