Prior research suggests that information technology (IT) project managers (PMs) often fail to take adequate steps to manage project risks and that this may contribute to the high failure rate associated with IT projects. In this presentation, I will discuss PMI-funded research that explores how IT PMs’ mental construal affects four key IT project risk management activities: (1) risk identification, (2) risk impact assessment, (3) risk response planning, and (4) risk response enactment. This research contributes to our understanding of IT project risk management and suggests ways for improving IT project risk management practices.
Project management methods have tended to be too complex to be easily understood and applied by non-experts. The pivotal assumption has been that documenting every aspect of a project in detail will provide a high level of control of the planned activities during the implementation of the project. Many project managers ended up producing massive numbers of documents and swathes of paperwork, leading to an overall feeling that the role was primarily administrative. In contrast, widely used management disciplines are often linked to a few simple frameworks that can be easily understood, and applied, not only by managers but also by the majority of individuals. Porter’s Five Forces and value chain analysis help to make strategy a key area for every organization to apply.
There are many problem solving methodologies-from TRIZ to OODA, from RPR to GROW, but this session won't discuss any of them. Instead we're going to focus on simple, standalone strategies to improve our problem solving effectiveness regardless of our existing PS skills or experience.

Project leaders need to know where to focus their attention and teams at all times or they risk higher costs, missed deadlines and unhappy stakeholders. Ruthless prioritization keeps the things that would be nice to do from getting in the way of the work that matters most.
In most IT circles, the mere suggestion of marrying agile and waterfall application development models into a seamless hybrid would be scoffed at. But there is merit to the concept.
Given the strength and wide adoption of the COBIT framework, can it be adapted and modified to address sustainability issues in IT-based projects?
For 2019, the expectation of the CEO and their leadership team will be that the CIO demonstrates decisive leadership, momentum and innovation that drive value to both the top and bottom lines.
Many organizations began their PMO journey in IT, but the traditional IT PMO is changing significantly. What does that mean for those PMOs, for IT and for organizations as a whole?
In the quest of software excellence, IT organizations try various approaches across different phases of an application's lifecycle. However, two areas that are often neglected are requirements management and testing.
What are some of the fundamental building blocks required in software projects? Things that can help position teams to adapt to changes quickly (including implementing the latest tech trends) and ultimately add value to business?
Security foundations for a project should be strongly laid in the initiation phase, preferably when the project charter is created and signed to document all possible risks, threat vectors and security loopholes, and should include conceivable remediation measures. Internal, external and technology-related risk are examined in alignment with project management processes.
Even when engineering teams follow best practices and work on incorporating security requirements into software products, companies still see an influx of reported issues. Keep these tips in mind.
Project bugs and the forecasting of progress can be complex. An Excel spreadsheet can be employed to gauge the progress of the testing and resolution teams. Using this simplistic method in conjunction with test-estimation techniques can help the project manager determine the completion date for testing efforts.
There is a tremendous amount of work that goes into defining and completing an end-of-life cycle for every software product. It also requires a skilled program/project manager. Here are some recommendations to help facilitate this process.
Business analysis that precedes system implementation is one of the key factors influencing overall project success. The goal of the analysis is to elicit requirements on the solution and provide inputs for their prioritization.
A program map is a diagramming technique used for showing the relationship between various components (usually operations and project-type activities) of a program and program events plotted against time. Program maps, when properly constructed, can convey a lot of information that stakeholders can easily absorb.
