How to Manage a Multi-Project / Multi-Teaming Environment

May 8, 2018 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

If you work in a multi-project environment as a product developer, engineer, or R&D expert, then the notion of multi-teaming is probably familiar. Most likely, you have key people assigned to multiple projects at the same time. Planning and managing these resources efficiently is almost impossible. Key resources themselves are challenged with fragmented work, time pressure, lack of focus, ambiguity, a constantly changing environment and, above all, dissatisfied project managers. These skill groups serve several projects in a non-dedicated way. They switch from project to project based on demand. They’re between a rock and a hard place. In this webinar, Jan Willem will show you how resources should be managed in order to make multi-project environments successful. *The mobile experience for this live webinar is not currently supported.

by Kelly Weyrauch
March 20, 2018 | 60:33 | Views: 4,085 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.51 / 5

Gantt Charts are a fine mechanism for planning projects that have well bounded activities with a clean start and end point, and with understood dependencies and sequences. But in the non-linear, sometimes chaotic world of Product Development, Gantt Charts can be inadequate, cumbersome, or even misleadingly inaccurate. In the session, we will explore an alternative using mechanism of Agile product development - a Backlog of value to deliver with estimations of size (effort) and a reality-based Burndown that shows a plan with visible assumptions. Together these mechanism provide an effective way to plan, track, and replan a complex Product Development effort.
