Program Description: 

Velocity is a “vector”, a term mathematicians and engineers use to denote both magnitude AND direction. Moving at high magnitude (i.e. fast) is useless if we are going in the wrong direction, as anyone who has ever heard “make a U-turn” from the polite, synthetic voice of the GPS receiver while driving can attest to. Conversely, moving in the right direction but at a slow pace is likely a strategy for being passed by in our modern, frenetic, and highly competitive environment. Aligning magnitude and direction consistently is the key to productivity and increased satisfaction in our work and busy lives.


So what is High-Velocity Productivity and how do you achieve it? At the PMI-MN Central Outreach event, we’ll look at three horizons of work:

• Personal workflow mastery – the fundamentals of individual productivity

• The “Rules in Use” for interpersonal workflow and their impact on team productivity

• How Theory of Constraints principles drive improvements in organizational productivity


If you’re a knowledge professional who thinks for a living and seeks better guidance, navigation, and control of your work, you won’t want to miss this PMI-MN Chapter Dinner with our guest, Adam Cherrill, PfMP, as he shares his own experiences, combat tactics, and battle scars from lessons learned along his never-ending journey towards High-Velocity Productivity.
