COVID-19 is causing a digital workplace transformation by forcing us to work as distributed organisations. In the past, this has been ‘played with’ by many organisations but few have had the courage, commitment and leadership to make it real. Suddenly, it’s all happening simply because it must. Business and society may benefit long term from this forced experience.

Now is also a good time to reflect on our commitment to complex project management. Are we talking the talk but not really committing to transforming how we think about, lead and manage complex projects? Do our governance structures, accountabilities and leadership behaviours match the needs of complex programs and projects? There is ample anecdotal evidence that this is very often not the case.


Facilitated by Dr Richard Barber, this webinar challenges program and project leaders to face up to this reality and the opportunity that COVID-19 presents. With participants, he will explore how COVID-19 provides a moment in time to learn, adapt and transform project management. Arising from this webinar you will:

  • Have increased awareness and understanding of the current complex project management paradox

  • Be able to identify where and how the COVID-19 crisis could be used to drive a way out of that paradox for your organisation or project

  • Understand what the first practical steps might need to be, for your own specific context

This webinar follows a webinar on the 2nd June Circle the wagons for survival or lead the charge to win?

This is a live repeat session of the same webinar held on 12th May, 2020.
