E82 Strategic Implementations with Antonio Nieto Rodriquez
In this episode of Project Management Office Hours, Antonio Nieto Rodriquez joins Joe Pusz to chat about #strategyimplementation and reinventing #projectmanagement . Antonio is a leading expert in Project Management and Strategy Implementation, recognized by Thinkers50 with the prestigious award “Ideas into Practice.”
Antonio and Joe discuss this year’s trend: Strategic Implementation. “The most significant disruption of the 21st century is not technology, artificial intelligence or big data, but it is the way organizations and countries will be managed – through Projects.” -Antonio.
Take a step back to discuss the impact value and the benefits of project management evolution. We often don’t know the value and what we need to deliver at first. By understanding the evolution of the process, we can progress further with our projects. Antonio urges us to re-invent the wheel and open new doors. We change the world with projects. We as PM’s get to create and develop these fascinating outcomes, but we sometimes might get lost in the noise. It’s our job to change the mindset and deliver new ideas. “Start thinking about how you would reinvent the PMO and the tools we have to deliver something further?” -Antonio. By developing something stronger, we are implementing new ways of understanding the project management tools and knowledge we have now to advance our career.

The Strategy Implementation Institute provides the training, certification, and resources to people looking to acquire the knowledge and skills to be implementation specialists.
Organizations are crafting strategies more frequently than at any other time in history.
This places a great demand on the ability to implement that strategy. Part of the challenge is that the current generation of leaders has been taught how to plan but not how to implement—at a time when implementation skills are highly required.
The high failure rate demonstrates this missing skills gap among leaders. It also drives the need for leaders to enhance their abilities and become recognized implementation specialists.
Whichever type of strategy you are implementing, the Institute provides you with the required skills through our online certification course.

ABOUT PROJECT MANAGEMENT OFFICE HOURS SERIES
Project Management Office Hours is intended to provide Project Management professionals a place to drop in and discuss Success Stories, Best Practices, and Lessons Learned. Project Management Consultant Joy Gumz has shared with us, “Operations keep the lights on, strategy provides the light at the end of the tunnel, but project management is the train engine that moves the organization forward.”
Each of us has a unique story to tell, but collectively we share a message that organizations who embrace Project Management Best Practices perform better than those which don’t. Organizations which align Projects to Strategy perform better. Organizations with Engage Executive Sponsors deliver better results. Organizations which measure Project Management performance outperform those which don’t.
During our Project Management Office Hours, we hear directly from Industry leaders how to make an impact in our profession. How we, collectively, will Advance Project Management Best Practices, One Listener at a time!
