July Chapter Meeting - On-Demand Webinar: An Introduction to Innovation Project Management by Harold Kerzner

Ways of Working


In conjunction with our training partner IIL, We are providing you, our members, with a free on-demand webinar in lieu of an in-person Chapter meeting.  The results from our recent Chapter survey, indicate that our membership would like a mix of virtual and in-person events.  You know we always listen and are providing this complimentary webinar for our members who want virtual events.



In both academia and industry, the words “project management” and “innovation” are not often used together in the same sentence or paragraph. There are numerous types of innovation projects and in most of them, the traditional material we teach in project management courses cannot be used without modifications. In this webinar, we will discuss the different types of innovation projects, including business model innovation projects, and how project management must be looked at differently. We will also discuss the roadblocks that project managers will face when managing these projects.

We will look at different types of innovation and why these innovation projects are the focus for business model development and sustainable corporate growth. Participants will learn the relationship between innovation and project management and recognize the roadblocks that prevent innovation from occurring.



Harold Kerzner (Ph.D., MS, Engineering and MBA) is Senior Executive Director with International Institute for Learning, Inc. and Professor Emeritus of Systems Management at Baldwin Wallace University. Dr. Kerzner is an expert in the areas of Project/Program/Portfolio Management and strategic planning and he is also a distinguished author in Project Management.
