Formalized and Systematic Risk Management Process for Complex Projects

Aug 27, 2019 11:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Project risks can give negative impacts on project objectives such as delay, cost overruns, decrease in quality and security aspects, then we can observe serious project failures. Risk management aims to identify the possible causes of threats and opportunities, to assess them qualitatively and quantitatively and to propose an action plan for risks deemed critical in order to decrease the undesirable effects on project objectives. Complex projects are affected by numerous risks and opportunities because of their complex organizational plan with a large number of stakeholders, complex planning with a long life-cycle, complex resource management, technical issues, and particular environmental factors.

The Agile Enterprise: An Agile View on Quality The role of QA and DevOps

Aug 30, 2019 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Agile is often 'sold' as a way to improve quality of products and services. One of the fundamental Agile principles is that continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances agility. Scrum, the most used Agile framework, doesn't have a "tester". A "done" backlog item should be part of a "shippable" increment of the product. Therefore, after each Sprint, the result should be available for users without a validation stage. The 'old' Testing or Quality Control (QC) is wrongly re-branded as QA for various reasons, from adding prestige to a mundane and in theory un-necessary activity to lack of understanding of the fact that QA, meaning Quality Assurance, is a process.

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.

Topic Teasers Vol. 125: Why Use Predictive Analytics?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: My latest project is to work with a small team to see if we need to add predictive analytics to our already brimming list of desktop applications. Frankly, I don’t see that we use even half of the features that we have now, but maybe some departments find value in them. To be honest, not being a math person, I don’t really understand why finding that we are 20% higher or 32% lower on some random statistic would do anything to help the business. The oddity is there! That doesn’t change anything for next month or week. What am I missing?
