Hello everybody welcome to the five minutes PM. Podcast Today directly from Amman, Jordan meeting from the executive forum four organization. Success a great Event promoted by my friend, Philip, the op from the leadership in formation, in conjunction with the BMI Jordan chapter at great the event with about 150 people from the very executive level to discuss not only projects management, but leadership governance is and strategy.
A very Weldon Event So. It's not only a speech but a very good discussion. So does Event was split up into four panels, four different panels to discuss. So for each panel, one keynote speaker address for about 20 minutes, and then we have something like one now to discuss deeply the top, the first stop was leadership was Greg, the president and CEO of BMI did on the speech talking about the price of the Success, how to develop leaders and how to promote the soft skills. And then we had a very good discussion talking about when it's time to leave when it's time to open space for nil leadership, do we need to have one leader or many leaders in the organization? And that banner was fantastic with two ladies from Jordan and one gentleman, Saudi Aramco So they discuss that the women's position than the leadership comes in from the women's side. So it was a very good discussion also to understand business, to understand the project and to understand the leadership. The second topic was governance promoted and the keynote at that time was Linda Crumped on the president and CEO of board source is a nonprofit organization to help the board development mostly for nonprofit companies. And then they discuss that a lot of things regarding ethics regarding complexity, and one of the nicest things that I heard from this stop quasi asked you for your business as your project becomes more complex, the governance becomes even more required. This was very nice. And, and how you can assure that all the supply chain it's working in the way with great governance. So we discuss that the problem with the supply chain, the problem regarding global markets. And then I heard for the first time, the concept of chief globalization officer, I really enjoyed that. The gentleman that takes care of the globalization aspect, the third top was execution. And I led this topic. I did a 20-minute speech about how we can transform innovation into results. It's pointless to have good ideas if we cannot transform good ideas and good results. So it's all about project management. So we discussed this and I tried all the time to make a bridge with good governance and also leadership because, with proper leadership, it's very, very hard to execute the change and governance. We were short that we're doing this in a very ethical and professional way. After my presentation, we finished the day with the strategy panel and which was led by Phillip the app. And he did a presentation talking about how important is to address strategy and to know the Fox in, to know where the company is going and how to translate this into good projects. So for me, even the highlight of all the Congress yesterday was the best execution does not mean to be the perfect execution. This is the sentence that we'll bring back home. This was sad by the CEO of pharma's one talking about how to transform strategy and execution so that we were discussing the challenges of doing a project with different cultural aspects. We discuss a lot about culture, and then he said this, we always look for the perfect execution and we struggle because there is no perfect execution. We need to look for the best execution. So this was for me, the highlight of a very productive day. I spent a wonderful time here, and I strongly suggest those who were not aware of the Middle East come here. This is my second time here does a year. It's great to see such nice people and very warm people. They really liked to exchange, and they really liked to improve their knowledge. So it's, it's a must come place for everybody to understand here. I had the opportunity today to go quickly to Petra and to visit this world heritage. And it's amazing. I was walking there and I imagined how these people could be built this 2,200 years ago. Imagine the leadership, the governance, the ability to as acute, and the strategy. And we started our two through a sick, like a kennel. And they did that to that's the city against all the invaders. So it was really, really, very impressive how the way they can do the best that they could do that. Something like 2,200 years ago, with leadership, governance, execution, and strategy. I hope you enjoy this podcast. This is my last visit and business strip this year. So I hope you enjoy it next year. We'll talk, not a topic, and also talk a little bit about the results of 2009 and perspectives for 2010 Sue next week with another five minutes. Bam. Podcast bye.
