    BONUS: I’m Out of Order? You’re Out of Order! This Whole Trial is Out of Order!

PDU: 1 - Leadership - .5 Technical

SPEAKER: Saby Waraich, PMP, CSM

     BONUS: Susan J Haight, PMP


How do you develop an ability to lead from any position in an organization? How can you be more adept in influencing those over whom you have little or no authority? What are the key skills that are needed for a successful leader? Knowing how to influence and lead others—often without direct authority—is critical in successfully managing projects. Most of us aren't natural leaders, the good news is that leadership skills can be learnt. The best makes the journey from manager to leader using their innate talents and through continuous learning and improvement. Don't rely on the school of hard knocks, discover the secrets to exceptional leadership and the mistakes to avoid on your own road to success.

Learning Objectives:

  • How to build better relationships with your team, your boss and your colleagues
  • How to align and remove obstacles for personal leadership development
  • Decode the leadership myths to identify what really matters and ensure that your leadership passes the test!

     BONUS: Litigation attorneys no longer sift through Banker boxes filled with paper folders filled with paper records. Just like the rest of the twenty-first century automated world, legal evidence has gone digital in the form of emails, database reports, social media posts, mobile text conversations, even security camera recordings– the list is almost endless.

Litigation project management is about forensic preservation, capture, and defensibility of electronic communication -- everything from email to instant messages to mobile phone contacts to social media posts. Evidence to support legal claims can be found in the Cloud, on network servers, and on the hard drive at a laptop at home. Beyond the challenges of identifying and collecting these records, international rules of evidence handling, evidence submission procedures, and attorney privilege pose ethical and technological dilemmas.
