Leading with the wisdom of the crowd
Saturday, Nov 28 at 2:10 pm – 2:40 pm CET

“I accidentally discovered a curious behavior with fascinating results. Later, I realized that this is a known phenomenon called ‘wisdom of the crowd’. Interested to know how practical this can be in projects, I invited people from my network to join me in an experiment. Soon, 705 volunteers joined me, and we started working. The result? Very positive, although, it has to be used with caution.

In this presentation, I’ll tell you about the details of this experiment, the way this phenomenon works, and, most importantly, the way you can benefit from it in projects, as a simple, practical, effective leadership technique.”

Nader K. Rad started working with projects about 24 years ago: first, as a project planner in construction projects, and then he moved to large process-plant projects. In parallel, he was also involved in IT projects and startups.

He gradually moved from project planning into the wider project management domain by helping project managers and companies improve their project, program, and portfolio management systems.

Nowadays, Nader is spending most of his time contributing to standards (, NUPP, PRINCE2®, PRINCE2 Agile®, and the PMBOK® Guide), and developing eLearning courses in his company, Management Plaza.
