Lindner College of Business Dean and Professor of Management Marianne Lewis, PhD, will discuss the challenges and opportunities posed by project management tensions: grappling with today’s fires versus tomorrow’s possibilities; building your team and culture versus meeting targets and efficiencies; meeting competing project demands of quality, speed and costs. Leveraging her extensive research and recent book, she will share the benefits and tools of both/and thinking (contrasted with traditional either/or thinking). Further, she will provide examples from her work with varied organizations and leaders to bring the concepts and tools to life.
