In this episode, global project leaders discuss how to make hyper-innovation happen, the do’s and don’ts of managing virtual teams and navigating an uncertain project landscape.

Alice Pollard, chief of staff and innovation architect for Cisco Hyper Innovation Living Labs in San Francisco, shares the success factors that helps some of the world’s largest companies collaborate on game-changing innovations.

James Stewart, vice chair for KPMG in London, talks how teams can navigate a new breed of project challenges, from breakneck speeds to real-time reporting requirements.

Fiona Charonnat, customer project and program management process owner for Ericsson in Paris, and Ibrahim Dani, director of governance for Optus Australia in Sydney, outline how leaders need to think differently when working with increasingly dispersed teams.
