Half Double Unfolded and ready for DIFFUSION
Back in June Project Half Double officially concluded the first phase of the journey towards changing the project management paradigm and increased competitiveness. We did so by hosting a grand conference for the community; Project Half Double - Unfolded. Phase 2 is now kicked off -with an overall focus on DIFFUSION.
The method unfolded
In June 250 Half Double enthusiasts spend a day thinking about how we can do projects better with Half Double. The sun was shining and so were the participants scoring a Pulse Check result of 4.3 out of 5 to the question “Are you having good fun and energy at the conference?”.
The theme were to share the impact of Phase 1 and unfold the methodology:
Niels Ahrengot – project owner and CEO at Implement Consulting Group (ICG) – and Michael Ehlers – project manager and partner at ICG – opened the conference by outlining the impact that Half Double can make on project management and Danish competitiveness watch it here.
In a power speech only lasting 25 min, Michael Ehlers presented the Half Double methodology watch it here.
Showing his support to Project Half Double, Dr Aeron Shenhar – PhD from Stanford University and an international thought leader on rethinking project management – gave an inspiring speech commenting on the methodology watch it here.
Further, the key impact and learnings from the pilot projects were presented by engaged practitioners who shared their experiences from working the Half Double-way. Learn about the projects here on the site: PHD Pilot projects.
Finally, we concluded by having an expert debate with the initiators, researchers, practitioners, and other community members looking both backwards and forward toward where Half Double is heading.
It was overall an inspiring day filled with energy and critical focus on something that really matters for future project management in Denmark. With a Pulse Check score of 4.1 on the question “Are you inspired to change the way you work in projects?”, we are certain that we are well on our way to creating real change. But don’t hesitate to grab hold of us if you need inspiration on how to make it work in your organisation.
Now we are counting September and Phase 2 has started! The key word is DIFFUSION.
We are looking forward to having 10 more pilot projects, creating true Half Double-practitioners, conducting more morning meetings, evaluating and researching on the methodology, building new online features helping you to explore the Half Double Methodology, and even writing a book to get the word out there!
Help by joining the community, signing up for training, and engaging your colleagues. We’re already talking to five exciting potential pilot projects to collaborate with in phase, but if you have a project in mind that you believe would benefit from reducing time to impact – let us know by contacting us here.
We hope that you will share stories or questions on how to use the method with the community on the LinkedIn group. We can’t wait to continue the journey with you and the rest of Denmark.
All the best,
The Half Double core team.
