The feature presentation will be as follows:

Topic: “Power and Politics in Project Management”

"Without power, project managers can accomplish very little. As organizations and projects 
have become more complex and as project managers become more dependent on more 
and more persons over whom they do haveformal authority, they increasingly need power
to influence the behavior of others. There can be no argument thateffective performance by 
project managers requires them to be skilled at the acquisition and use of social power."
Yourker, Robert (1991). Power and politics in project management. PM Network, 5(4), 36–40.
Consequently, the purposes of this workshop are to:
1.Study various forms of social power such as positional, informational, relational, situational etc.
2.Learn about an interrelationship between resources and power and about methods how 
to create resources(and power) from scratch;
3.Introduce VRIO (Value, Rareness, Imitability, Organization) Analysis as a framework for the 
evaluation ofProject Manager’s resources and capabilities; and
4.Discuss best practices for the project managers on how to acquire and use power.
