Welcome to Reality – Surviving the Deadly Divide Between Pre-Sale and Post-Sale

by Kimberly Johnson, Brian Cohn, Randall Iliff
May 15, 2018 | 57:36 | Views: 3,884 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.50 / 5

The PM community has great models for how projects should work, and a wealth of good advice on how to make basically sound programs and portfolio management more effective. Unfortunately the business of selling PM effort is often in conflict with the profession of delivering PM services. We see this in the form of impossible deadlines, unrealistic promises, and estimates based on client budget rather than true cost of execution. In this session we’ll explain why this enormous problem continues to exist, show you how to assess the resulting risk on your own project / program / portfolio effort, and share proven strategies you can apply to minimize the impact. Every PM, regardless of experience or skill level, will benefit from this session.

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

by Jan Willem Tromp
May 08, 2018 | 40:47 | Views: 5,594 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.46 / 5

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.
