Culture as a goal
Company culture is important and should be aligned with the company’s core values. Nor can your core values be mere slogans that you post on the walls. They must be constantly implemented. “If you don’t live and breathe the core values, you’re not going to be culturally appropriate,” Kris shares.
Kris lists three strategies companies should adopt in the post-pandemic business world: creativity, relationships and connections, and getting back to basics. Creativity in advertising and marketing is key, and Kris also suggests linking creativity with relationships. “I encourage businesses, whether small or large, to take the time to establish more personal touchpoints with the people you’re trying to engage with,” he notes. Getting back to basics as a strategy is all about looking at what got you to where you are as a business and making sure you’re accentuating those elements in your business.
Make meetings more efficient
I ask Kris for some tips on making corporate meetings more effective. The purpose of meetings should be decision-making. Company meetings should ensure that the shared knowledge is used to advance the respective initiative. Kris insists on having structured, time-bound meeting agendas and starting meetings with the most important topics. Starting meetings like this reinforces the sense of urgency and encourages employees to arrive on time.
The future of technology project management
Kris explains that there will be a greater focus on virtual reality training instead of Zoom meetings and PowerPoint presentations. This is because training in the future must be experiential and practical. Training should be engaging. “If we have training spaces where we have virtual reality, you could train with someone halfway around the world and be able to talk and work together on projects and things like that,” Kris shares.
