Workshop: Journey from the Lazy to the Agile Project Manager

Workshop: Journey from the Lazy to the Agile Project Manager

Aspira in cooperation with PMI Netherlands is proud to be holding an exclusive
one-day PM workshop - Thursday, October 24th, 2019

10 years on from the release of the No.1 bestselling book ‘THE LAZY PROJECT MANAGER’,
Author and well-known PM guru Peter Taylor presents a bleeding-edge take on the PM of tomorrow.




'Progress isn't made by early risers. It's made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.'

Learn about the art of productive laziness with The Smart Agile Project Manager; understanding what is meant by the ‘productive lazy’ approach to projects (and life) and learn how to apply these lessons ‘to be twice as productive and still leave the office early’.

The course will cover the definition of productive laziness, the science behind the theory (yes there really is some), and will share some personal learning experiences and look at the key project stages, one of which the ‘lazy’ project manager works very hard in and the second they should be in the position of enjoying the ‘comfy chair’ safe in the knowledge that the project is well under control.

A specific focus will be made on the third area, project closure, which can be done so much better with very little effort but with significant value add for all ‘would be’ smart and agile project managers.



At the conclusion of this course, attendees will be able to:

  • Apply the approach of 'Productive Laziness' in the Agile world
  • Understand how to better manage themselves while managing others on projects
  • Identify ways to apply the concept of working smarter, not harder
  • Apply personal efforts where it matters most on a project
  • Work with team members in a more productive, self-organizing way
  • Plan projects to start the way they want them to start
  • Communicate more effectively with the entire project team


  • Project Managers
  • Agile Leaders
  • Senior PM practitioners
  • PMO staff
  • Strategy Leaders

All are welcome to learn about effective project management, agile and team efficiency.
