RAISING THE BAR...MAKING YOURSELF SOMETHING MORE

We all seek opportunities to be one step better than we are and to have a greater understanding of the opportunities around us.  No matter what arena we look at in our lives, there's always an opportunity to "Raise the Bar".  In this hands-on, interactive dinner presentation, Carl Pritchard, PMP, PMI-RMP, suggest ways that we can take our current state of affairs and "raise the bar" by tackling new channges and creating a new world around us.   He'll outline specific aspects of our lives that we can examine and point to tricks that open doors that otherwise tend to stay shut.  You'll walk out with at least one strategy or tactic to create new avenues for self-improvement.

One of the Frederick PMI site's "founding fathers", Carl Pritchard is a certified PMP, PMI-RMP and author of seven texts in project management.  A regular feature on the PMI SeminarsWorld global lecture circuit, Carl serves as the U.S. Correspondent for the U.K. project management magazine, Project Manager Today.  He sits on the board of directors for ProjectConnections.com, and recently completed the updated Audio PMP Prep: Conversations on Passing the PMP Exam, with his new partner, Bruce Falk.  He's a resident of Frederick, MD, where he lives happily ever after with his lovely wife, Nancy.

Employee Perception of Organizational Fitness

This final class project explored, through a survey and follow-on analysis, whether there is a relationship between organizational fitness and employee performance; and also examined whether an employee's views of organizational fitness can signal any specific organizational health issues.  In order to find answers to these questions, the team developed a survey questionnaire to gain employee feedback on organizational attributes of leadership, communication, culture, and performance. The carefully selected questions provided some insights into these attributes. The team categorized the communication-based questions by top down, bottom up, and lateral communication. The leadership questions focused on employee involvement, leading by example, and growth opportunities within the organization. Cultural questions focused on embracing change and work/life balance, and the performance questions focused on recognition, measurement, and goals.  The team concluded that employees view the organizational fitness areas of leadership, communication, and culture as relevant influencing factors on their performance. In addition, employee perception of organizational leadership was found to be a major determining factor of employee performance.
