April 2018 Chapter Meeting

Speaker: Zack Jourdan, Ph.D
Topic: The Journey from Bureaucrat to Entrepreneur Means Going the Extra MILE

Organizations are constantly asking their employees to be more entrepreneurial. You do not need to start your own company to operate your project or program like a business owner. In this interactive discussion, we will discuss four key areas that differentiate the entrepreneurial employee versus someone who is stuck in the status quo. Using the MILE framework (Mindset, Innovation, Learning and Engagement) will give you and your team a common language for improving your organizations performance.

Bio: Zack Jourdan, Ph.D. is the founder and principal consultant for SZJ Solutions, LLC and an Associate Professor at Auburn University at Montgomery.  Zack is a focused thinker who develops custom strategies and solutions to help you develop leaders that are the envy of the competition.  He is the President of the South Alabama Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI).
