Mar 26, 2019 1:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Lessons Learned from the 2014-2016 Ebola Virus Response Project management is like building a house - the right way. What if the house was built on water in the middle of the rainy season? During an emergency response, that is what project management feels like. But who doesn't want to live on a house boat? The requirements to being a successful project manager during an emergency response are similar in theory but require a rapid scale-up of stakeholder efforts without overlooking the cultural sensitivities required for compliance, adherence, support, and sustainability.

The Project Revolution: The Implications of the Silent Disruption That Is Taking Place and the New Skills Needed to Adapt

by Antonio Nieto
March 07, 2019 | 61:33 | Views: 1,924 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.56 / 5

By 2025, regardless of industry or sector, senior leaders and managers will spend at least 60% of their time selecting, prioritizing, and driving the execution of projects. In fact, soon "we will all become project leaders, but many of us are not prepared for this shift.” According to recent research, the number of individuals working in project-based roles will increase from 66 million (in 2017) to 88 million (forecast 2027). And the value of project-oriented economic activity worldwide will grow from $12 trillion (in 2013) to $20 trillion (forecast 2027). Those are millions of projects requiring millions of project leaders per year. In this landscape the percentage of work activities performed as part of projects is markedly increasing as projects are becoming the essential model to deliver change and create value around the world. The so-called gig economy is also driven by projects.

Agility continues to be a highly discussed subject. The success of using Agile approaches, mainly Scrum or similar frameworks, has organisations and managers thinking of replicating its success at the department level and even at the organisation level. This webinar looks at Agility at the Enterprise level from a Project Manager perspective, explaining the difference between the new Agile Enterprise (a top down Agile approach) and Enterprise Agile (the bottom up Agile transformation) that is scaling popular Agile frameworks from team level to organisation level.

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. 117: Keeping up With Emerging Technology

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

Question: I am more in the manufacturing or fabrication part of project management, but often my teams and I are working with an IT team to create a hybrid product. It’s not that I need to do their work, it’s just that sometimes I feel stupid when I talk to the other team because I don’t understand some of the terms they are using. Or, once they explain them to me…I knew that idea all along, but I had heard it called by another name. How can I get a quick glimpse of what new ideas I need to know and what they are called without spending too much of my already overbooked day researching what to even learn?
