Mature companies that are searching for new sources of growth must learn how to pursue higher risk, transformative innovation outside of their core business. And they need to do this within organizations that are optimized for a focus on sustaining today’s business. The same startups and entrepreneurs that have been disrupting large companies are increasingly being viewed as a pipeline for transformative new business creation. Leading companies are experimenting with new ways to engage earlier and more deeply with the startup ecosystem.
We are expected to ask the “right” questions when eliciting requirements to identify gaps. Requirements risk management is an emerging concept in many high performing organizations used to provide guidance on what the “right” questions are. This interactive session will explore the hand-offs between project and requirements risk and arm attendees with information to begin addressing the #2 reason of why projects fail – inaccurate requirements - immediately within their workplace using requirements risk management techniques.
Organizations launch projects with the assumption that the new or improved solution will provide worthwhile benefits for stakeholders and a suitable return on investment. Understanding your business requirements can help ensure that your teams actually deliver those benefits.
Project Headway Webinars
In this presentation, Mark Mullaly explores what it takes to deliver project information effectively in the boardroom. He discusses common challenges and pitfalls, and explores why project information often falls short of expectations. He identifies the information that executives are most often looking for, and how to think about, structure and present information in a way that is meaningful and relevant. The webinar will provide strategies to plan your next presentation, and to ensure to the greatest degree possible that it hits the mark.
For those who find this concept a little discomforting, this webinar is for you. Mark Mullaly explores what it means to develop and reinforce your abilities as a project manager. Rather than looking on career development as a honing and refining of technical skills and abilities, he takes on the necessary challenge of developing our career as one of ensuring visibility, reinforcing reputation and cementing perceptions of competence. It's not enough to be a great project manager; it is also necessary to be seen as a great project manager. Stand up and be counted; your career will thank you for it.

He will explore what steering committees are supposed to do, why they often don't, and what you can do about it. Make going to a steering committees the highlight of your month, not the thing that you dread most. Here's how.
So what does it actually mean to manage an agile project? What does it take to get acceptance and adoption, and to introduce the practices to an organization? Is it more effective to introduce aspects of the approach, hoping for some level of take-up, even if it means compromising many of the overall foundations? Or is it necessary to adopt agile wholesale, and fend off attempts to water it down? In this presentation, Mark Mullaly explores the agile phenomenon: where it came from, what it is meant to do, and how to best make it work. Whether you are trying to make it work, or just want to find out more about what it's about, be sure to tune in as we try to deftly explore the agile phenomenon.

Just because you are working in a waterfall organization doesn't mean you can't be Agile. Join Dave Prior as he walks you through a case study on implementing Scrum in a waterfall environment. He offers some key practices and data points that will enable you to be successful in both keeping the team productive and providing the information needed to build trust and confidence with the Project Sponsors and Senior Executives you need to support your Agile implementation.
Dave Prior explains how to use the teachings in Sun Tzu's masterpiece for success at work. While this presentation is geared towards in your role as a project manager, many of the lessons can be applied in other facets of day-to-day life to help you subtly manipulate a situation towards a desired outcome.

It is the projects that an organization undertakes that determine its strategy. Without a tie to execution, a company's stated strategy is no more than words on paper.

Jennifer Tharp moves past the current CSR fads and explains why you, as a project manager, should be concerned with corporate social responsibility. Learn how responsible and sustainable projects have a real impact on the success of your projects, your business, and ultimately your career.
