Topic: Additive Manufacturing Market Overview and Demonstration

Speaker: David Edelen

Additive Manufacturing (also known as 3-D printing) is a widely diverse and quickly growing market. According to Persistence Market Research, the market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 15-22% each year between 2015 and 2025. Additive manufacturing is used in many different market segments including Automotive, Aerospace and Defense, Healthcare, Housing/Construction, Medical, and Manufacturing. Project managers may increasingly see projects where additive manufacturing is used so an increased knowledge of the additive manufacturing market is necessary.

David Edelen from KAIROS, Inc. will present an overall market overview and then discuss what KAIROS, Inc. is doing with additive manufacturing in Defense/Aerospace and other industries. Following his talk, David will show some parts made using additive manufacturing and give a tour of the facilities that KAIROS, Inc. uses to speed up prototyping and design new components for their customers

Pizza and drinks will be served.

Limited to the first 20 registrants.

Topic: Managing Through the Perfect Storm

Speaker: David Schwantes

Have you ever had one of those projects where the odds seemed stacked against you, and managing to a successful outcome seemed out of reach? Sure, you say, just about every project has these challenges, right? After digging into some hard facts reported in PMI’s Pulse of the Profession 2018, David will provide a refresher of the main components that make up a project, and a review of the Process Groups and Knowledge Areas, as outlined in the PMBOK sixth edition. He will also share a tried and true model for Group Development that will be familiar to many and is essential to understand in forming new teams.

In an effort to make it all make sense, David will then overlay this framework on two very different actual projects, a short 30-day strategy engagement extreme example, and a 6-month Software Delivery project for a US Federal Agency more traditional. He’ll compare and contrast how the approach was tailored for each project, by utilizing different combinations of the Knowledge Areas and applying Principles of Project Management to achieve successful outcomes.

Primary Greatness

by Stephen R. Covey

Overview:

Primary Greatness outlines the twelve levers of success—a set of principles for achieving a happy and fulfilling life.

Stephen R. Covey—the late, legendary author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People—believed there were only two ways to experience life: primary greatness or secondary greatness. Through his books and speaking, he taught that the intrinsic rewards of primary greatness—integrity, responsibility, and contribution—far outweighed the extrinsic rewards of secondary greatness: money, popularity, and the self-absorbed, pleasure-ridden life that some people consider “success.”

In this posthumous work, Covey lays out clearly the 12 levers of success that will lead to a life of primary greatness: Integrity, Contribution, Priority, Sacrifice, Service, Responsibility, Loyalty, Reciprocity, Diversity, Learning, Teaching, and Renewal. Covey defines each of these 12 qualities and how they can be leveraged in your daily life to lead you to both professional success and personal happiness.
