The Next Generation of Project Management: Getting Results without Formal Authority
By Justin Fraser, Senior Project Manager at Infragistics 

This session will provide real-life solutions for Millennials to connect with and successfully manage team members of different generations, some of whom may have been in their roles since before the Millennial was born. The talk will include actionable, appropriate responses for challenges Millennials in management positions may face, including building productive relationships with senior team members, dealing with insecurities, gaining authority, and resolving conflicts. 

The speaker, while in college at age 20, was an Associate Project Manager on a Client Services team responsible for managing internal staff and clients who were older than his parents. This talk will cover his real-life experiences, both positive and negative. He’ll discuss how he gained the team’s trust and respect to have the authority to manage projects the way a Senior Project Manager would.
