Challenges in Project Management—
A Reflection from a Conference
Thard work, a great team of volunteers uccessfully delivered an inspiring event hat gathered more than 150 delegates.
The theme of the event was: “The
Challenges of Project Management.
Agile. Psychology. Team.” Agile gives
priority to people and interactions and,
for that reason, the conference focused
on the psychological, human and team
collaboration aspects of the project.
The event was kicked off by Raji
Sivaraman, PMI-ACP, PMP, and Michał
Rączka, PMI-ACP, PMP, who, using
their personal agility (PA) lighthouse,
guided us to the secure shores of our
personal vision. The “flavors” of their PA
lighthouse were presented to steer us to
our goal alignment that would pave the
way to organizational agility. They are:
n Education Agility and Change
Agility: Be brave enough to leave
your comfort zone, as magic happens
outside. This conference happened
thanks to brave people who were
ready to take risks and succeed.
n Political Agility: Be prepared to step
back to save others.
n Emotional Agility: It’s all about trust.
No trust means no collaboration, and
self-trust starts with you.

“CEOs are increasingly focused on finding employees with the ability to constantly reinvent themselves. These employees are
comfortable with change; they learn as they go, often from others’ experiences.”
