Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

The Gig Economy: Changing How You Manage Projects

Our economy is on fire! The latest numbers here in the U.S. show that companies added 263,000 jobs in April alone. And unemployment is down to 3.6%, which is the lowest since 1969. All of this growth and opportunity has companies struggling to hire the talent they need – and so they are turning to consultants and freelancers, those making up the Gig economy. Studies are showing that the need for supplementing their workforce will not slow down – especially in the area of project management.

The Project Management Institute (PMI), has stated that there will be a need for 87.7 million project managers by 2027 to meet business demands – and that our inability to meet the demand could result in $207.9 billion in GDP losses. By the same year, studies have shown that independent contractors are projected to become a majority of the workforce.

Managing workers in the ‘Gig’ economy well is critical, enabling an organization to put the right talent in place where and when it is most needed – especially as talented full-time workers are harder to find and harder to keep.

Attend and learn:
•New strategies for resource allocating and planning, including a focus on the role, not the source, of the talent
•How focusing on inclusion, diversity, and fairness is critical to weaving gig workers into your team
•The four critical processes you must have in place to ensure success
•Tactics needed to manage a new type of team

  • Show Me the Money Recorded: Oct 2 2019 64 mins
    Bonnie Low-Kramen, International Speaker and Bestselling Author
    Let’s talk money. No more taboos, secrets, or stigma, just facts and strategies. We have no choice. If we keep going with the status quo, it will take 208 years to get to equality. I don’t have that kind of time, do you?

    This webinar will be a bad news/great news hour. The bad news is that the stress about money can be overwhelming. Very few women ever get formal negotiation skills training that could be applied to terms of employment. Too many women are underpaid and do not know what their role is actually worth in their market. The great news is that Bonnie Low-Kramen is determined to fix that and she has the success stories to prove she can.

    This webinar is for anyone who has a stake in today’s workplace. That means professional women, manbassadors, managers, students, human resources professionals, and recruiters. After all, real change in our workplace is going to take all of us – women and men. This webinar will be mind-opening and could be your catalyst for action.

  • Your Product is Your Best Salesperson Recorded: Jul 17 2019 41 mins
    Amanda Nielsen, Demand Generation and Strategic Partnerships at New Breed
    This week Amanda Nielsen joins us to discuss how your company's product can be its best salesperson.

    Product-led growth. It's not just another B2B buzzword. Amanda will discuss why she only recommends one strategy for growth in the SaaS industry -- product-led growth. Product-led growth describes a business strategy that capitalizes on the merit and mileage of your product itself. And she knows it works because some of today’s most successful SaaS companies — from Slack to Atlassian to Calendly — were built on the inherent virality of their products.

    But how do you actually lead with your product? Does every company have the ability to use product-led growth to drive success? What if you can’t afford to offer your product for free?

    In this session, Amanda will answer those questions and more. You will walk away with a tangible plan for letting your products sell themselves.
