Upcoming Webinars

A Deep Dive Into Y2K – A PM Perspective

Oct 21, 2019 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

We stand on the verge of the 20th anniversary of a curious date: one where, for many reasons, the world didn't end. Y2K was a global project of immense proportions, as organizations literally raced against the clock to prevent their information systems from failing as the rest of the world celebrated the dawn of the new millennium. For the most part, they kept going. This webinar takes a retrospective view of the Y2K project, one of the largest coordinated systems efforts that the world has yet seen; it offers an alternative perspective and far more insight into the management underpinnings of how to manage an effort that was complex, diffuse and world-wide. Join Peter de Jager for a look back at a global incident that monopolized the activities of nearly all IT departments through the 1990s. He'll explore what we've learned, what we still have to figure out, and what we are perilously close to once again forgetting.

How Digitalization Affects Project Management – Evidence from Two Case Studies in the Construction Industry

by Timo Braun, eskil ekstedt
September 24, 2019 | 59:56 | Views: 5,421 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.27 / 5

Digital transformation is a phenomenon occurring across sectors and nations, affecting not only technical processes, but also organizational forms and managerial practices. Among them are: (1) project-based organizations (PBOs), common in traditional sectors like the construction industry, and (2) project networks (PNWs), the most favorable form of project organizing in modern service and creative industries. Project management, which is often used as an agent for change, plays a significant role in initiating and implementing digital transformation. To analyze the digital transformation of traditional PBOs and modern PNWs, comparative case studies in the context of commercial construction have been conducted in Sweden and in Germany.

The Case for an Executive Project Management Office for the Intelligence Community

white paper
by Kane Tomlin

The Intelligence Community (IC) is an enormous, departmentally diverse community in numerous agencies, and covers a large range of individual intelligence efforts. Both law enforcement and the military rely on and make up part of the IC. Though the efforts are continuous and cyclical, there are numerous one-time activities that are not replicable, and are designed to answer specific questions for policy makers and other consumers of intelligence. The sum effect of an IC PMO may prove invaluable when trying to improve the efficiency and accuracy of the IC.

Investing in 21st Century Skills: Preparing Young People for the Project Economy

by Cindy Anderson

“Project” is a huge, broad word that has such rich possibilities in terms of helping define how people do what they do and how organizations achieve their goals, create change, and deliver value. We are moving toward not defining work by its features or attributes, but in terms of what needs to get done, and figuring out the best way to do it. We call this The Project Economy.

The Project Economy offers so much rich potential as society optimizes and extends the amazing achievements that technological advance now puts at our fingertips.

Question: My latest corporate project is to set up a structured plan to protect the organization against hackers and phishers. I will be working with team members from information technology, training, human resources and procurement. I don’t quite understand why this isn’t solely an IT project, but I am happy to have a multi-departmental project as it is actually a promotion for me. The CEO is our product owner, so I have to make a good showing. The only problem is I don’t know anything about hacking and phishing. Can you give me a quick immersion experience?
