Leverage Behavioural Science to Increase Your Project Management Leadership Effectiveness

Power Skills


Decades of research shows that the majority of improvement initiatives fails to meet performance expectations. We believe this performance expectation disconnect occurs because of:

  • a lack of leadership involvement and ongoing, effective engagement
  • specific desired behaviour changes aren't adequately identified and prioritized

Typically, we see organizations speaking about behaviour in a generalized manner. They use “behavioural” clichés and general behavioural statements and don't define specific, pinpointed leader, and performer desired behaviours.

Behavioural Science (behaviour is defined as “what I say or do”) complements Change Management’s focus on people’s thoughts, feelings, and attitudes. It is behavioural science that has the most immediate impact on behaviour change adoption and sustainability. We have demonstrated that behavioural science, used in conjunction with Change Management, improves user change acceptance and yields more sustainable results, especially in white-collar, technical, service, and professional environments.

accomplir® has pioneered next-generation improvement toolsets by embedding key Behavioral Science concepts into Lean Sigma, Business Process Management, and technology/digital deployment methodologies.

This presentation takes a practitioner’s viewpoint focusing on behavioural science key concepts and selected tools applicable to both the participants’ personal leadership behaviours as well as their change initiative project management roles and responsibilities.


Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the essentials of behavioural science and the importance of

          (1) pinpointing behaviour

          (2) providing positive consequences to accelerate and sustain behaviour change

  • How to pinpoint and activate attendee’s personal leadership development priorities
