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.
This session will discuss the use of Agile Techniques in implementing Organizational Change Management. This presentation will be focused exclusively on Organizational Change Management using the Disciplined Agile process-decision toolkit to realize the benefits.
The process of project management is the process of making decisions. Much of our thinking about how to make decisions reflect an ideal generally called rational economic actor. In an ideal world, you weigh the alternatives based on reliable data, compute the most advantageous path and decide to choose that course. We maximize the expected economic outcome given some set of constraints. Ideally, we do this in a timely manner using a process that is transparent and inspectable. Everyone involved can understands why that particular decision was made. In the messy real world, we down-select the alternatives to consider. We work with limited data, fuzzy or even inaccurate data and, frequently, decide to take the path of least resistance. Getting to better decisions requires some planning well before the decision is to be taken. Increasingly we acknowledge the role our inherent biases play in our decisions. The insights of behavioral economics allow us, up front, to design decision making strategies and processes which limit the role of our cognitive biases. No process will immunize us against all failures but knowing what to look out for increases our success rate. During this talk we will examine how to increase the chances that our decisions will actually advance our project’s objectives without being stick in analysis paralysis. We will discuss how to make your decision making more aligned with your goals and make those decisions quicker and more reality based.

In 1998 a project was chartered to develop an international standard for industry and government strictly through the grassroots efforts of unpaid volunteers. Their journey led to the development of the Organizational Project Management Maturity Model (OPM3), and this is their story.
In order to manage innovation to meet global challenges, organizations should implement an approach that joins together the management of individual projects, integrates them to the organizational project perspective for delivery and governance, and aligns them to the organizational strategy.
With project management being a more diverse discipline than ever, what’s the right strategy for developing people into, through and beyond project management?
Developing an authentic personality, through tapping into positive values or ethics, enables us to be true to ourselves and sincere in our interactions with others. Authenticity helps to gradually build trust and collaboration with our stakeholders and provide a sustainable contribution to organizations.
Similar to the technology frameworks behind the scenes of our everyday lives that improve our user interfaces, a client engagement framework can improve how organizations interface with clients, making the organization more effective and improving the quality and level of client satisfaction.
Project management skills have never been more portable. In the current environment, how do businesses secure the PM talent they need to drive recovery and growth?

This two-part article looks at how a globally operating organization can leverage that multi-location presence to deliver a more effective and efficient pandemic recovery. In Part 1, we set the context and consider the variables an organization must prepare for.
COVID-19 is acting as an equalizer for how people work—and that forces us to see the similarities we have with people instead of the differences. If we start to see our colleagues as real people instead of just co-workers, then that has to change how we think about them, how we act toward them and how we collaborate together.
In the last weeks, every project has effectively become distributed. While travel has almost completely ground to a halt, the way all teams operate has mirrored remote teams almost perfectly—which will forever shift the way we work moving forward.
Organizations have been forced to demonstrate a lot of agility in the last few weeks, with more to come. Many of those organizations have found they aren’t as agile as they thought. So how do they improve?
