How to Facilitate Productive Planning Meetings

Jan 17, 2019 11:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

Planning is vital to your project execution and success. Projects are often multifunctional, requiring input from various stakeholders. Project planning often tends to be done piecemeal or not at all, often leading to missing and/or incomplete information and correspondingly poor results. Effective planning meetings will help you not only develop key artifacts but also provide continuous team building. This webinar will discuss how to effectively facilitate productive face-to-face kickoff sessions (both in person and virtual) and ongoing planning meetings. You’ll also learn about the impacts of culture (organizational and global) on team dynamics.

Buenas Prácticas en la Gestión de Proyectos de la Cadena de Suministros

Jan 24, 2019 11:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

La gestión de proyectos de la cadena de suministros (SCM) es una disciplina muy compleja que incluye una serie de procesos y servicios, específicos y concretos, que juega un papel central, con la finalidad de proporcionar soluciones viables para que cada proyecto relacionada a un mejor desempeño de la cadena de suministros en el que se halle involucrada se lleve a cabo con la máxima eficiencia y procurando la mayor optimización de recursos posible. No obstante, según el estudio “Enhacing Project Management” desarrollado por APICS en 2015 a más de 12,500 profesionales en SCM, solo un 9% de los participantes respondió que sus proyectos llegaron, al menos en un 90%, a cumplir con los objetivos de tiempo, costo y alcance Adicionalmente, un 62% indicó un nivel de stress significativo en su rol en proyectos de la SCM, siendo la fase de ejecución la más desafiante de gestionar con los involucrados. No obstante, en la actualidad no existe un estándar especializado y mundialmente aceptado por los profesionales vinculados a la gestión de iniciativas de la SCM, que brinde lineamientos claves sobre qué entregables, procesos, herramientas, técnicas e interesados pueden considerarse para dirigir un proyecto de SCM de principio a fin, garantizando un nivel de servicio adecuado y un uso mínimo de recursos físicos, tecnológicos y humanos. Por lo tanto, es de vital importancia transmitir a los directores de proyectos vinculados a la SCM la necesidad de aprender buenas prácticas en gestión de proyectos relacionados a la producción, abastecimiento, distribución, planificación y soporte de la cadena de suministros, que garantice el éxito rotundo en la consecución de sus objetivos alineados a los beneficios esperados por la organización ejecutora del proyecto.

The Innovative Workings Behind How New Terms and Definitions are Adopted into Standards

by Kimberly Johnson, Brian Cohn, Gina Lund, Gary Jing
December 18, 2018 | 59:22 | Views: 2,636 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.24 / 5

Terminology sections or documents are critical resources for implementing a standard. However, users tend to take them for granted as just being part of the standard. But did you know: • In what situation a word or phrase is selected to be defined as a term in the terminology document or section? • What science is behind the definition of a term? • How to find definitions of a term in various standards for free? • How to relate the meaning of a term to the meaning in common dictionaries? • The word or phrase will be not be adopted as a term if the intended meaning of the word or phrase is found in a dictionary? • If not, you are not alone. New terms are not adopted easily in standards. It's a profound process - dull to some - yet largely unknown to people.

فن التعامل مع الثقافات المختلفة

December 14, 2018 | 60:51 | Views: 229 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.47 / 5

بالنسبة إلى الألماني والفنلندي ، الحقيقة هي الحقيقة و في اليابان وبريطانيا ، فإن الحقيقة هي الحقيقة طالما أنها لن تغرق القارب بينما في الصين، لا توجد حقيقة مطلقة و في إيطاليا هي قابل للتفاوض. (من كتاب : عندما تتصادم الثقافات ، ريتشارد د. لويس). يؤثر الاختلاف في ثقافة الناس بشكل كبير على كيفية رؤية الناس بعضهم البعض من منظور الأخلاقيات ، وهذا يعطي في بعض الأحيان تصورات مختلفة عن نفس الموقف و جمعية إدارة المشاريع كمنظمة عالمية تجمع القادة ، ومديري المشاريع ، والمديرين التنفيذيين يجب أن يكون لدى أعضاؤها إدراك متزايد بالاختلافات بين الثقافات حول العالم و كيف يمكننا فهمها و التعامل معها. قد يكون الأمر محيرًا لمديري المشروعات والممارسين عندما يتعاملون مع ناس من مختلف الثقافات فعلى سبيل المثال ، في حين أن العقد يعني للسويسري ، والأمريكي وثيقة رسمية تم التوقيع عليها ويجب الالتزام بها و هذا يعطيه شعوراً بأن الأمر قد انتهى بمجرد توقع العقد و لن تناقش بنود العقد مرة أخرى و هو ملزم للجميع و لكن بالنسية للياباني فإنه ينظر إلى العقد كوثيقة ابتدائية قد يعاد كتابتها وتعديلها حسب ما تتطلبه الظروف و في نفس الوقت نرى أن للإيطاليين آراء مرنة حول مفهوم العقد و القانون و ما هو أخلاقي وما هو غير ذلك ، و هذا الأمر قد يتسبب أحيانًا في جعل الأوروبيين الشماليين يشكون نزاهة الإيطاليون عندما يكون هناك مرونة في تطبيق القوانين و يعتبرونهم أقل مثالية من السويسريين ، ولكن من وجهة نظر الإيطاليون، فهم أخلاقيون تمامًا. في معظم الأحيان ، يرى المنتمين الى ثقافة معينه أنفسهم أخلاقيون ويرون الآخرين على أنهم غير أخلاقيين في بعض المواقف و لكن بدراسة الثقافات المختلفة فقد ينقلب الموضوع رأسًا على عقب. هذا هو التحدي الذي نواجهه عندما نحكم على أساس رؤيتنا و قيمنا ونتجاهل كيف ينظر الآخرون إلى نفس الوضع و لهذا فإن فهم السلوكيات والعقليات والتوقعات الخاصة بالثقافات الأخرى أمر مهم للغاية ، و يجب علينا أن نتذكر عدم السماح للتعميم الغير قائم على دراسات جيدة بجعلنا نضع مفاهيم و احكام مسبقة على ناس من ثقافة معينة مما يجعلنا احياناً نتحيز مع أو ضد معتقداتهم و قيمهم. لذا يجب أن نبقى منفتحين على الثقافات والقيم الأخرى لأن هذا سيؤدى الى معرفة الإختلافات و فهم الاخرين خاصة و نحن بحاجة لمحاولة الاعتقاد في الخير في الناس. و السؤال هنا هو كيف يمكن لمديري المشاريع قيادة فريق متعدد الثقافات دون معرفة قيمهم الأساسية؟ القائد الحقيقي هو الشخص الذي يستطيع فهم هذه الجوانب ويمكنه رؤية الأشياء من منظور مختلف. في العصر الحالي من العولمة ، وجدنا في معظم مدراء المشاريع ا يعملون مع أشخاص من ثقافات وشخصيات مختلفة ، فإذا لم يكن لدى مدير المشروع علم بالثقافات المختلفة لأعضاء فريق عمله و يتجاهل هذه الفروقات و يتعامل معهم كما لو كانوا فقط أعداد ، فهذا يجعل لأعضاء الفريق أن يشعروا بسهولة بعدم احترام لثقافتهم الخاصة وقيمهم. تغطي هذه المحاضرة جانبين من مثلث المهارات الخاص بجمعية إدارة المشاريع و هما القيادة ، وتحت القيادة ، يندرج التوجيه و والإرشاد ، وإدارة النزاعات ، والذكاء العاطفي ، والتأثير ، والمهارات الشخصية ، والاستماع ، وحل المشكلات ، وبناء الفريق ، والتفاوض و الجانب الاخر هو الجانب الإستراتيجي وإدارة الأعمال ، وهو يغطي علاقة العملاء و التسويق لأفكارالمشروع في الثقافات المختلفة. هذه المحاضرة ستغطي الخصائص الفردية و كيف أنها مهمة للغاية و كيف أنها مفيدة للغاية عندما يكون هناك فهم مشترك نسبيًا لمقصودها ومعناها و ستوضح المحاضرة أنه على الرغم من اختلاف الثقافات و القيم و المفاهيم و لكن يجب أن يكون هناك أرضية مشتركة يمكن أن يلتقي فيها جميع الأطراف.

by Kane Tomlin
