Lunch Meeting(Columbia, MD)
Presented by Dean Layman, PMP
Sports officiating for a specific game and for an entire sports season requires a great deal of management skill in terms of managing and controlling sometimes intense situations. Project management (PM) controls and processes and other techniques in the PMBOK are certainly applicable in this business of sports officiating, or refereeing. In this presentation, Dean Layman, a local certified basketball referee, discusses how he uses PM techniques during a game and throughout an entire season. While project planning, execution, monitoring and controlling, and close-out processes are utilized extensively by an official, it’s really stakeholder communications that is the paramount PM skill that needs to be practiced to successfully manage a game and a season. Mr. Layman will share his experiences in combining his PMP knowledge with his officiating certification. And, there will be a little basketball rules knowledge and game scenarios shared during the presentation.

Lunch Meeting(Annapolis Junction , Maryland)
Presented by Edward Ketchen, Esq.
Project managers focus on integration of strategic plans with project management to achieve organizations’ goals. Integration of a construction or other type projects into an organization’s strategic plan is designed to help the organization, whether a company, university or public agency, realize its overall vision. If the best considered project management plan goes awry the inevitable conflicts that may arise among stakeholders likely will require the project manager’s continued and intense engagement. The presenter intends to delve into the nuts and bolts (processes, advantages and disadvantages) of various conflict resolution models used throughout Maryland, including some that offer benefits but are not used often, and will review some case examples demonstrating where conflict resolution techniques worked successfully and some where the process could have been done better. The presenter will discuss various techniques used to break negotiation impasse and to deal with difficult negotiators, including attorneys. The presenter also plans to touch on significant attributes of the relatively new Collaborative Law model, a conflict dispute hybrid now gaining credibility in Maryland and elsewhere. In this regard, proponents plan to introduce the Uniform Collaborative Law Act as a rule or as a bill in the Maryland Legislature in 2013.
