A few recent events have left this project manager feeling very positive about PMOs--and that’s something that hasn’t happened in quite some time. While we can't yet proclaim PMOs as saviors of organizations, they are now on the journey to success.
Simply put, scope is the size of the project. But there’s more to it than that!
Before you submit your project plan for final approval, you'd better check it over. Learn the steps for cross-checking a project plan.
In this article, we look at the key to schedule success, historical and repeatable tasks, why schedules fail, how to eliminate the target date tango and build a schedule defense that manages the risks.
According to PMI’s Pulse of the Profession, “When projects do not meet their original goals and project objectives, inaccurate business analysis/requirements management is cited as the primary cause 47% of the time.” And the increasing scale and complexity of projects is making it extremely difficult to assess and verify the project requirements. As a result - a huge amount of critical errors in project and systems development arise in the initial concept & design stages. In this presentation and workshop, we will focus on how harnessing automated computational tools utilizing Natural Language Processing can help project managers ensure their requirements are consistently clear & are a joy to work with. These project managers, business analysts, engineers and by extension their clients, will benefit in the earliest stages of a project to ensure poorly written requirements do not infiltrate later project stages leading to reduced stress, increased confidence and higher project success.
This webinar discusses the second-in-command as a person of importance not impertinence. Examples from both classic literature, fictional characters that most of us recognize, and current events will be offered as forms of case studies. The second-in-command is very visible in project teams as a person that may want to help, but sometimes is not recognized by the project team lead or manager. Listen as Chris Greco explains the very nature of the second-in-command and how these "followers" are in fact not only necessary, but most often crucial to the success or failure of the team.
Project management tools are getting more and more sophisticated as they compete with rivals on features and spread to support more platforms. Yet sophistication has a cost. Let's explore how a combination of deliberately low-tech inputs and outputs can be used with modern tools to deliver the best of both worlds.

Nuclear technology and project management have a long standing relationship. The River Corridor Closure Project was a finalist for the PMI Project of the Year award in 2015. As a large-scale project that dealt with significant hazards and large budgets successfully, there is much to learn from this project.
It is through gaining a better understanding of the uncertainties—and better managing them in relationship to the project environment and stakeholders involved—that PMs may more effectively approach and complete their endeavors to contribute more value.
