Upcoming Webinars

The Agile Enterprise: Using Risk Management Standards - A Look at the Role of PMI and ISO Standards in Agile

Sep 20, 2019 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Most Agile frameworks developed for small software teams (relative to the size of an organisation) believe that adopting Agile is a Risk Mitigation approach and/or that in Agile risk is reduced compared with the traditional planned approach, wrongly limited to "waterfall" software development. Apart from the fact that there is no empirical or scientific evidence of that, most Agile practitioners can't or won't look at the dual aspect of risk (positive and negative), missing one of the significant benefits of Agile – opportunities management, or in other words, positive risks. Considering Risk Management from the Agile perspective, this webinar is a review of how Risk Management practices and standards can be scaled down and adopted by Agile Teams.

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

Sep 24, 2019 11:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
webinar

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.

.Widely used management disciplines are often linked to a few simple frameworks that can be easily understood, and applied, not only by managers but also by the majority of individuals. Porter’s Five Forces and value chain analysis help to make strategy a key area for every organization to apply. In contrast, project management methods have tended to be too complex to be easily understood and applied by non-experts.

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.

The Changing Demands for PM Education

by Kevin Coleman

The Astrophysics of Organizations

by Michael Wood

It's often useful to look at organizations, their culture and how they approach strategic initiatives through the lens of other disciplines just to explore whether there are useful metaphors to be found. And that brings us to a fascinating comparison with astrophysics.

CIOs: Stay in Your Lane or Cross the Lines?

by Michael Wood

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?
