Alan’s dynamic keynote is built around the two years of planning and two months of climbing that went into making the project of reaching the summit of Mount Everest a reality for Alan and three members of his immediate family. Alan puts specific emphasis on adopting an agile mentality so that we are not too rigid in our thinking, reframing activities to focus on results rather than tasks, developing a level of trust in professional relationships, gaining alignment and commitment, working through change, recognizing strengths, managing schedule and risks, adopting an iterative approach which incorporates immediate feedback, and effectively working together to achieve strategic goals. Alan’s message is about the passion, commitment and resilience that are needed to reach new heights in all that we do as well as the strategies and tools that allow great leaders and committed teams to achieve breakthrough performance.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Reframing activities to focus on goals and results rather than tasks
  2. Adaptive planning based on current knowledge and goals
  3. Empowering team members to make critical decisions
  4. Agile roles and responsibilities

Speaker:  Allan Mallory - PMP, CSP, M.A., B.Sc., P.Eng, P.E.
