Σύντομη περιγραφή:

– How many times have you feel the uneasy scent of ambiguity? How many times have you reflected, that it is the scent of opportunity; that it is the competition that pushes us to edges of knowledge?

– How many times have you wished to be approximately right than precisely wrong?

– How many times have you falsely believed that if you deliver the project’s output, the project will provide the benefits?

– And how many times have you wondered that work necessary to accomplish your project objectives is considered “in scope”; all other work is considered “out of scope”; but, on every project, “thinking” is always “in scope”?


Christos will not only share with the PMI-Greece Chapter audience his thoughts and lessons learned on the above questions, but he will also show you “how deep the rabbit hole goes” in the Mega-project Governance context, by referring to – and discussing with you :

  • Project governance boards objectives: To whom we owe a duty.
  • The project’s board dilemma – preserving vs. creating value.
  • The project governance – management spectrum; on project governance diarchy.
  • Project governance main functions: On project board committees; on project’s strategy.
  • On regulations: On normalization of deviance; the law of requisite variety.
  • Project organizational structure: Why it is important; the Conway’s law.
  • Project’s board decision making: Quality in the boardroom.
  • Diversity of opinion; Why vs. How; on problem framing; on crisis; on boardroom waste.
  • The exploitation – exploration spectrum; project asset milking vs. asset building.
  • Discounted Cash Flows vs. Real Options Thinking.

Join us to the J&P-Avax Theater, on November 22 at 18:00 and be prepared to have a fabulous time.


Until then, Christos is wishing you “Semper Gumby!”
