Whether in industry or academia, Dr. Rudy J. Watson’s focus has been one of using stories to initiate an exchange of ideas. He currently serves as Department Chair of Business Management in the School of Business at University of Maryland Global Campus. He has held various academic and administrative roles in his ten-year academic career which followed over thirty-three years with IBM as a system engineer, manager, and executive project manager. He is a member of the Academic Advisory Board of the University of Management and Technology and is the Phi Kappa Phi UMGC Chapter President.
Dr. Watson’s associations and memberships include the Academy of Management, Project Management Institute, and Phi Kappa Phi. Most recently, he completed a certificate in Cybersecurity Technology from UMGC. With four college degrees from The George Washington University, his Ph.D. is in Logistics, Technology, and Project Management.
Project management is a very demanding profession with some generally agreed upon measures of success. Do your measures of success include factors outside of the project key performance indexes? Are you working on a current project as if your life depends upon it? Is there something at least equal to, if not more important than the project deliverables, or is this, organizationally speaking, a blasphemous question? The purpose of this session is to provide thought provoking examples that may lead you to take these questions under serious consideration.
Attendees will be exposed to potentially different perspectives on:
- Emotional Intelligence
- Interpersonal Skills
