Project Managers need to continuously develop their knowledge skills and attitudes to effectively perform their roles and be successful. Do we as project managers know where we stand? In terms of capabilities and competencies? Further do our organizations follow the necessary processes and have the systems and framework to meet project objectives? These are some of the questions that this webinar will seek to answer. In particular it will look at the following: • Overview of PMI Standards focused on process and capability improvement • Methods for assessments to know where we are for people and organizations • Gap analysis of capabilities with respect to standards • Methods and projects for improving project managers and the organizations • Capabilities and competencies required to implement the improvement plans
As the number of projects in organizations skyrocket, understanding project fundamentals and fostering project management skills have become essential. Leaders have too many projects with too little visibility into them, and they lack the project oversight and delivery competencies to untangle them. In a recent survey with Harvard Business Review, we wanted to look at the current challenges faced by senior leaders when dealing with projects and project management, as well as their expectations for the future. The results, combined with other case studies, will help us better understand how organizations are using projects now, where they are finding success with projects, and where they are struggling. The session will help project managers translate their hands-on know-how up to the leader’s-eye view.
Every project has multiple work streams that project manager must ensure are ready to help deliver the promised benefits of the initiative. A managed OCM workstream is the most effective means of ensuring successful adoption of the work. However, there are OCM specific tools and techniques the project manager can use to effectively deliver this workstream. This presentation will explore those technical details and also discuss a communication strategy, so all stakeholders are aware of the workstream and the value it adds to the project.

Question: My boss just asked me to head a project to change our product to be more environmentally friendly with regards to carbon emissions, but I don’t think he has thought it through. I agree with his intent, but I don’t think he realizes that his solution will only paint a “prettier face on the box” and may not truly reduce our carbon footprint. Do I say something to him, or do I just stay in my place and do what I’ve been assigned?
