Everyone wants metrics, but which ones really matter? Which metrics can help you "actually" get better and give you visibility into the health of your teams?
Thanks to technology, we are saturated with change. You’re working on a project that will introduce more change. In fact, your measure of success is user adoption, and if your users don’t accept your change then your project will fail.
Projects are always hard to successfully manage. Even in the simplest possible case, when all of the objectives are known in advance and resources are available, there is still need for constant adjustment in response to external variables. PMBOK and basic tools do a great job of helping the PM manage these projects, but what happens when things aren’t so simple?
Planning has always been thought of as one of the key aspects of project management or even management in general. 65% of practitioners believe the planning phase to be the most critical to project success yet it is woefully understudied. New research from more than 1,300 global projects will be discussed.
Do you like change? Most of us don't - especially when it's forced upon us. Project Managers Olaf Lewitz and Michael Sahota will teach you new ways of how to help your team adjust to change and getting them to work with you rather than against you.
How can you make sure your work is of high quality? Presenter Bruce Harpham will discuss how to leverage the quality best practices from health care and other industries in project work. These practices will set you apart from others and speed your career advancement.

Do you often find that when something fails in production, the response of a development team member is, “It works on my machine or at our end, you must be having the wrong version“? Vice Versa on the other side of the table – do you find that the operations team always feels that the developers are not sensitive to the operational requirements and constraints? If so, does that mean we are just developing software not a working system ? Are we just working in Silos ? DevOps aims at breaking the Silos and bringing in a culture of everyone “getting along”. Presenter Priya Patra disucsses how and why DevOps is the force behind the evolution where the development team and operations works together with business sponsors and quality assurance (QA) to deliver software that can be released to production at any point of time.
Upcoming Project Management Webinars
Modern leaders and managers increasingly recognize the importance of being able to influence people over whom they don’t have formal authority. Because authority is becoming an ambiguous concept, contemporary leaders can no longer simply tell others what to do, particularly when facing common issues such as: - Working across departments in a matrix and flat structure, where authority and responsibility are unclear. - Working across cultures in multi-site or multinational organizations. - Managing projects across national boundaries. - Managing cross-functional and cross-cultural teams located in different countries. - Trying to get ideas accepted upward and across organizations.
Programs and projects are done for customers, whether internal, external, or hidden, and in our work, we need to actively engage customers to focus on them for business value. Our goal is to anticipate customer requirements and involve customers from the beginning and after program and project completion.

A recurring challenge for projects is the delivery of outcomes that meet stakeholder expectations. When outcomes do not produce expected results, the associated implementations that delivered those outcomes will likely be viewed unfavorably. Requirements definition is a well-known technique for specifying project deliverables and outcomes. Incorporating requirements definition into project phases can significantly improve the chances that the outcomes will meet expectations, and the associated implementation will be judged a success. Attendees will walk away with learning how to define requirements before project starts to improve project and outcome success, how the project charter contains the business analysis, and more.
