“May you live in interesting times!” This is an ancient and famous Chinese curse. Today, we do live in interesting times: Our environment is characterized to be Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous (VUCA). Change is constant and happens at a frenetic pace. Change poses severe challenges to project managers. It makes team members uncomfortable and may also cause unethical behavior or unprofessional conduct. Mismanaging change can severely impact project success. This very interactive webinar will cover a typical project change scenario and provide you with practical tips and techniques to deliver strong, proactive, leadership and confidently ride the waves of change.

Save Time With Tools + Templates
This template is designed to show projected budget costs for project human resources (a consulting team, for example) and provide a comparative analysis of actual money spent on those resources and hours used to date by those resources. It can be easily updated as desired (weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.). The tool provides an immediate illustration of the state of the project at any point along the project life cycle by showing whether the money and hours utilized to date are above, at or below the projected budget amount.
The template is a detailed IT Resource Master Plan that includes the labor resources required to produce the project deliverable. The Resource Master Plan can be a living document that is actively maintained and managed throughout the life of an IT project. This also contains the Resource Ramp-up Chart to help plan project teamwork effort burn rates (and analyze their burn-rate forecast).
