The TSA Tech Lecture Series 2017 kicks off with a lecture from Ahmad-Shah Duranai — Architect, Project Manager, and Leadership and Communications Coach – in conjunction with the North American debut of the Architect@Work Canada event.

Project Management (PM) is a combination of science, technology and art where processes, systems, tasks and people work together for common goals in changing environments. Most progress in technology has improved our ability to deal with all other components of PM, except the people component.The Art of Leadership in PM deals with people and team dynamics addressing the soft skills of leading high performing teams. The presentation summarizes the current body of PM knowledge and describes a soft skills toolkit called by its acronym iSACK TVA to provide attendees with a new perspective on the people aspect of PM. The 90-minute presentation will be followed by a 30-minute Q & A for interested attendees.
This event is accredited for 2.0 structured learning hours from the OAA.
