Build High-Performing Project Teams – Conversation with Charles Vivian

Build High Performing Project Teams - Conversation with Charles Vivian | Video

There has been a common theme in all of Charles Vivian’s ventures. It was his commitment to the people he has worked with. That’s why I wanted to speak with him about High-Performing Project Teams.

This video is safe for viewing in the workplace.

This is learning, so, sit back and enjoy

Charles Vivian

Charles Vivian is an experienced and inspiring business leader. In 2017, the UK Business Awards named him the UK’s Inspirational Business Leader of the Year.

Charles recently became the Managing Director UK of Roboyo, a global leader in Intelligent Business Process Automation.

Before this, Charles ran North Highland’s UK and NE US business, taking on a business leadership after transforming their Project and Program Management practice. I first met Charles back in the late 1990s when we worked together at Deloitte. As a new Project Management consultant, Charles joined the first large project I led.

And we stayed in touch. What I observed in all Charles’ ventures was a commitment to the people he has worked with. That’s why I wanted to speak with him about High-Performing Project Teams.

High-Performing Project Teams

I asked Charles:

  • What do you mean by ‘high performance’?
  • Why does it matter?
  • Can you give us an example of a high-performing team?
  • And can you give us an example of an underperforming team
  • What would you do to raise the performance of a team that is underperforming?

And, along the way, I learned about the powerful concept of drains and radiators.

What Kit does a Project Manager Need?

I asked Project Managers in a couple of forums what material things you need to have, to do your job as a Project Manager. They responded magnificently. I compiled their answers into a Kit list. I added my own.
