The Power of project management to thrive in disruptive times

We are happy to announce our first PMI event of the year 2019 in the Rogaland Branch. This will be a great evening with interesting topics and opportunities for networking. 


Driving innovation with design thinking

Design thinking gives us a vast toolbox for creative problem solving. Applied design thinking can provide us valuable insights and new perspectives that helps drive innovation. The talk explains the basics of design thinking, and gives an example of how design thinking has been used for mobile app development in Equinor. Design methodology and a close feedback loop with actual users helped us avoid decision making based on assumptions, it improved communication in the project, and it allowed us to come up with better solutions

Digitalization and Culture change

Digitalization is about changing how humans and machines work and changing the business models. To implement a transformation project that delivers real value is also about changing from analog working culture to digital working culture. This presentation will focus on how these two cultures differ from each other and what does it take for a company to make the change. As an example, we  will learn how Aker BP has implemented agile ways of working streamlining decisions and accelerating the rollout of data powered processes in a record time
