Aug 10, 2018 1:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Programs serve as a crucial link between strategy and the execution of business results and organizations implement them to achieve strategic goals. Although the practice of program management has evolved in lockstep with the project management profession, the root causes of program failure remain. In this step-by-step guide, Irene Didinsky offers a standardized approach to program management, closing the knowledge gaps and variations that currently exist across organizations and industries. For the first time, The Practitioner’s Guide to Program Management walks the reader through all the key components of effective program management. Using a case study example of an actual process improvement program, Didinsky discusses the qualities of excellence in program leadership, the importance of organizational strategy alignment throughout the program life cycle, how a program realizes benefits, and how to manage conflicting priorities of stakeholders. This comprehensive resource also includes an historical overview of the professionalization of the field, outlines the logistics of forming a program management community of practice, and concludes with a glossary of terms. With this desktop manual in their hands, practitioners can expect to thrive and guarantee the success of their programs.

March 06, 2018 | 61:58 | Views: 7,845 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.25 / 5

Intercultural gaps threaten many projects. National cultures, job cultures, enterprise cultures, generational cultures: any gap in those components can lead projects to face culture clashes…and additional problems. Yet, project managers can not only actively manage those gaps, but also leverage them and thus extend leadership skills. This webinar will highlight which levers project managers can use to identify and proactively manage intercultural factors within the project, and suggest practical ways to develop an intercultural leadership style which can be effective both at personal and team level.

질문 : 저는 방금 프로젝트와 3 명의 동료 프로젝트 관리자가 회사의 전략적 목표를 어떻게 달성했는지 문서화하기 시작했습니다. 그것은 현재 직장에서하는 일의 일부가 아니기 때문에 임기를 이해하고 있음을 인정하기는 당황 스럽지만 관리인이 기대하는 것을 준비하는 방법을 모릅니다. 솔직히 말해서, 그것은 약간 희미한 것처럼 보입니다. 나는 사실과 인물을 다루는 것을 선호합니다. 내가 무엇을하여야한다?
