HUAS 48015 17S1 Herodotus’s Histories, Books 1 & 2, Continued...
March 24, 2017 to May 26, 2017

Our yearlong exploration of the first two books of Herodotus'shistory-defining, genre-defying work moves from the risings and fallings of Croesus and Cyrus to the land of Egypt and the marvels of the pyramids and the Nile. Seemingly, an extended digression on the cusp of Cambyses’s disastrous foray into Egypt, we’ll attempt to place book two of Herodotus within the larger stated purpose of the work: “so that what happened from human involvement might not fade away because of time…”

No class April 7 and May 5.

PMGT 31206 17W1 Design Thinking for Project Managers (Advanced)
March 23, 2017 to March 24, 2017

New Course Offering

As professional project managers in today’s complex, dynamic, and global world we are constantly reminded that must strive to “meet and exceed” our customer’s expectations. This has become a mandate, whether delivering new products, services, or project outcomes.  Our ability to understand “the voice of the customer” in order to deliver project outcomes that will “delight” them is not a trivial matter. The challenge is that most customers do not excel at articulating exactly what they want or need, much less what would “delight” them. Yet they will recognize what they like and even what delights them once they “see it”.

Design Thinking offers a fresh and practical approach to getting at what really makes customers tick. Design Thinking focuses on understanding the world from the customer’s perspective, the use of creative exploration to advance ideas and solutions, and rapid prototyping to determine early on what will meet customer needs and what has the potential of exceeding their expectations. This course focuses on exposing the working Project Manager with the fundamental ideas and concepts of Design Thinking as it pertains to the discipline of Project Management.

Learning objectives:

  • Apply principles of Design Thinking to gain greater buy-in from key stakeholders
  • Apply Design Thinking tools such as Ethnographic interviewing, Personas, Stakeholder Maps, and Customer Journey to create empathy with customers and deliver superior project deliverables
  • Effectively use ideation techniques and rapid prototyping to complement the Agile Methodology for project management
  • Develop a roadmap to introduce design thinking to project management in their organizations
  • Enhance their project management styles and technique to reduce costs, shorten cycle times, and delivery deliverables that will resonate with their intended customers.

Course delivery format: This is an onsite course.

Sections: This course is offered once per year.

Notes: Breakfast, networking lunch, and all materials included in tuition.

Participants in the Advanced Project Management Program may take this course as advanced elective. All others must meet the experience requirements as stated.

HUAS 94011 01 The Origins of Modern Capitalism II: From Adam... March 18, 2017

This course examines an epochal shift in the history of modern capitalism by comparing and contrasting Adam Smith’s analysis and critique of the division of labor, in The Wealth of Nations (1776), with Karl’s Marx’s analysis and critique of large-scale industry, in Capital Vol. I (1867). We shall attempt to account for the similarities and differences between these modern social theorists by situating their respective analyses and critiques of capitalism in their specific historical context of articulation.

If we reach capacity, you will receive an email right after registering that explains that you have been placed on the waitlist.

Join us for a day of writing, community, and inspiration at our FREE Writer’s Studio Write-In.

Most of the time will be devoted to working individually, but we are building in a few moments to foster discussion and inspiration, too.

We’ll start at 10 am with the Meet and Greet over coffee and tea. Next, we’ll devote two hours or more to working individually. Around 12:30 pm, we’ll break for an hour-long Lunch and Read with Writer's Studio instructor Sarah Terez Rosenblum, where everyone will have a chance to share half a page of their work (if they’d like) and the group can discuss process, creative problem solving, and anything else that serves the writers in the room. From roughly 1:30-4 pm, we’ll get back to writing.

Come for the whole day or whatever portion works for you. Use this time to devote yourself to your creative pursuits alongside other writers. This event is a collaboration with the Writer’s Studio Student Board, and we promise to have a few surprises along the way.

Lunch will be provided. We hope to see you there!

PMGT 21102 17W1 Assessment and Recovery of Trouble Projects (...
March 16, 2017 to March 17, 2017

Experienced project managers are often brought onboard to recover troubled projects. The recovery process first starts with an assessment of the project’s health using various diagnostic tools. A determination is made whether the project can be saved or warrants termination. If it can be saved, a recovery plan is developed. Upon agreement by the key stakeholders, the plan is put into action. The recovery process is closely monitored and controlled until the project is stabilized. The recovery team exits the project once the stabilization criteria are met. The project continues on its normal life cycle towards presumed successful completion.

The goal of this two-day course is to offer you a methodology and tools for rapidly assessing and recovering troubled projects. First, you will learn the key characteristics of successful projects. You will gain an understanding of rational criteria for deciding whether a failing project should be terminated or resuscitated. You will be introduced to a three-phase methodology for rapidly assessing and recovering failing or troubled projects. You will learn key processes and tools associated with each phase. Course delivery consists of focused mini-lectures as well as hands-on activities. The class will be divided into small teams, which will be engaged in interactive discussions and practical case study exercises. Each team will present the results of their discussions and exercises to the class. The course is designed to be highly interactive.

Formerly Project Assessment and Recovery.

Learning Objectives:

  • Perform a rapid assessment of a project’s health

  • Implement critical measures to prevent projects from becoming troubled

Course Delivery Format: This course is offered onsite.

Sections: This course is offered twice a year. It is also offered October 13, 2016

PDEVENT 17S1 Webinar: Assessing Your Behavioral Style: The... March 15, 2017

Online registration only

Open to anyone

The web conferencing link and access information will be sent via email a couple of days before the webinar

Overview

How well do you understand your colleagues and/or direct reports? How about yourself? We all approach situations from completely different angles, which can cause friction and confusion when we don’t “get” where people are coming from. By understanding the behavioral and communication styles of ourselves and others, we can work from a solid foundation of mutual respect. Being able to hone in on “why?” and not “what?” is the key to understanding motivation and facilitating communication. Learning to accept differences while capitalizing on the diversity of work styles found in our groups and team members, aids in our own personal and professional development.

Learning Objectives

  • To provide access to a complimentary DiSC® assessment
  • To increase your self-knowledge: how you respond to conflict, what motivates you, what causes you stress and how you solve problems
  • To understand how an overplayed strength can be a weaknesses and how to work on finding an advantageous balance
  • To learn how to improve working relationships by recognizing the communication needs of team members

MRINFO 17W2 The New Era of Emergency Management: A Global... March 14, 2017

Emergency management is becoming increasingly global, with countries, communities, and organizations facing disease outbreaks, cyber attacks, and terrorist groups that care nothing for national or international boundaries. As such, today's emergency managers need the knowledge and flexibility to respond to disasters on both a local and global scale.

In this webinar, internationally recognized crisis management consultant and author Suzanne Bernier will draw on her experiences responding to disasters across Canada and the United States to discuss the increasingly global nature of emergency management as well as the new and evolving threats we must continue to monitor and plan for accordingly.

Suzanne will be joined by Jennifer Le of Australia (Emergency Management and Business Continuity, University of Technology Sydney), who will share her country's unique challenges, experiences, and perspective on disaster management.

The two will also discuss what it really means to be "resilient" in this new era of emergency management and how the public and private sectors are working together to reinforce resilience around the world.

Speaker bios:

Suzanne Bernier is a certified, award-winning, and internationally-recognized crisis management consultant, speaker, and author from Toronto, Canada, who has helped governments, communities, and companies plan for and respond to disasters for over twenty years. She was recently named 2016's "Continuity & Resilience Consultant of the Year - North America" by the Business Continuity Institute (BCI).

Throughout her career, Suzanne has been professionally and personally involved in helping communities respond, rebuild, or recover from numerous crises across Canada and the US, including severe storms, wildfires, hurricanes, and acts of terror. Prior to her career in business continuity and emergency management, Suzanne was a journalist as well as former press secretary and media spokesperson for the Canadian government.

Her critically-acclaimed 2015 book, Disaster Heroes, tells the stories of ordinary men, women, and children who have done extraordinary things to help respond, recover, and rebuild following some of the world's most significant modern disasters.

Jennifer Le is responsible for Emergency Management and Business Continuity at the University of Technology Sydney. Jennifer has broad experience across different industries, both in the SME and large scale organizations, and is passionate about transitioning organizations from a reactive to an integrated approach to embed resilience.

WRIT 22101 01 Jumpstart Session: Creating Breakout Characters... March 11, 2017

Indelible, passionate, strong, single-minded characters allow us to see ourselves not just as we are but as we might be at our heroic or anti-heroic best. Because audiences thrill to identify with these higher versions of themselves overcoming extraordinary obstacles, breakout characters help sell stories and put the writer on the map. Using examples from contemporary media, we will unlock the mysteries of these larger-than-life icons and, using in-class exercises, discover ways to bring the characters we write into high definition, breakout focus.

MEWE 21800 17W1 CANCELED: The Structure of Medical Articles
March 9, 2017 to March 11, 2017

In this interactive course, a brief overview of trial types and design will be given (including a refresher on basic concepts of biostatistics), after which each section of a standard medical manuscript will be dissected and discussed from various aspects and in a considerable detail, using examples from published literature. In addition, the students will be asked to come up with their own “trials,” to offer critical input on their colleagues’ thinking, and to take turns in a “hot seat,” where they will edit parts of a manuscript provided by the instructor (word by word, punctuation mark by punctuation mark) and explain each of their decisions. At the end of the course, students will be able to understand the interplay between critical reading and writing, and the ways in which various components of a manuscript come together.

Note: Students who register 5 or fewer business days before the class runs are responsible for emailing the program manager for any pre-assignment.
