November 18, 2020 | 52:52 | Views: 2,089 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.10 / 5

A project leader of a functional team, in late 2020, may encounter external stakeholders that may negatively affect aspirational guidelines that all PMs must strive to achieve. By nature of this type of organization, a PM has little or no formal power. How does a PM maintain the position of being fair, being factual with stakeholder raising conflict, defending himself/herself in a responsible manner, and respecting those stakeholders bringing negative (perceived or real) risks? In the process groups of initiation and executing, I plan to share also two to three examples from projects in the ASIC supply chain business experienced in the past (good, bad, ugly) in the in the initiation and execution areas.

by Kik Piney
November 12, 2020 | 60:58 | Views: 359 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 3.80 / 5

The presentation is structured in two main parts. The first part provides a description of current practice and tools as applied in the program and portfolio domains. The case study is introduced and analyzed using currently available tools. These tools allow us to evaluate some of the costs and to forecast benefits. The inadequacies and limitations of this type of analysis are presented. The second part is devoted to describing an original and powerful set of additional techniques for addressing these inadequacies and for extending understanding and control across the entire lifetime of a program or portfolio. These tools provide business management with a complete view of how the components interact across the program or portfolio, and to forecast how the corresponding costs and benefits develop across each phase of the work. This leads to the definition of a consistent set of reliable indicators for end-to-end benefits performance management. At each stage, the logical basis for the corresponding algorithms is explained and the techniques are applied to the case study.
