Competências. Lideranca. Trabalho em Equipa. Coordenação. Comunicação. Conflito. Motivação. Mudança. Criatividade. Estes são alguns dos desafios que preenchem o quotidiano de um Gestor de Projetos. As ferramentas, as técnicas e os processos constituem apenas uma pequena parte de um todo. O sucesso dos nossos projetos depende essencialmente de um elemento primordial – o Fator “H” – o Fator Humano.
Somos nós que criamos, gerimos e executamos os projetos. São as pessoas que detêm competências – conhecimento, experiência e atitude. Uma Gestão de Projetos pautada na excelência deve ter em consideração fatores que motivam e orientam pessoas para o sucesso do projeto e, por outro lado, que garantam a satisfação das necessidades, expectativas e desejos de todos os stakeholders.
Assim, os nossos desafios encontram-se neste ponto: conciliar de forma eficaz e eficiente a gestão do Fator H com as competências técnicas e contextuais da Gestão de Projetos. Este é o tema central do nosso evento.
Porque tudo se resume na forma como interagimos com o outro e na “marca” que deixamos nos projetos. Venha interagir connosco e deixe também a sua “marca”!
