Scheduling 2017: Tackle Challenges and Stay Ahead of Change
Scheduling for Agile, Hybrid Projects, PMOs and Beyond
New technologies, hybrid projects, the launch of a PMO—when the environment is constantly changing, how do you craft a schedule (or multiple schedules) for project success?
Discover timely answers here—and only here—at the PMI Scheduling Conference 2017, exclusively for PMI members. Whether you are specializing in scheduling or ramping up your skills for larger projects, you will not want to miss:
- Tips on working with Agile practices and dealing with hybrid (Agile, Waterfall) project challenges
- Guidance on planning activities across geographic regions and technological systems
- Insights into setting schedules for PMO success
While every business is different, there are fundamental similarities that link project success to business success. As a project manager, you must make yourself relevant to your organization's overall mission. In this keynote presentation, Kristy Tan Neckowicz shares her experiences of what CEOs need and want from project managers, from schedule planning and communication to leadership skills.
This presentation will provide a brief overview of the “Five Secrets of Project Scheduling” and will go on to describe how to apply them in a PMO environment by creating a “scheduling center of excellence” and how doing so can improve project success rates throughout an organization.
The advancement of the project management profession depends on being able to successfully deliver projects, and that becomes problematical when working with unrealistic schedules. This presentation will explain how to avoid the common scheduling mistakes when preparing and maintaining project schedules, and will discuss level of detail, use of constraints and task type, logic breaks, and progressing work.
Does “scheduling” for an agile project make sense? If you can change what the team does, how is it possible to schedule? Scheduling does make sense for agile, if you think about “sequencing,” “minimum viable product,” and rolling wave deliverable-based planning. You might even use some of these approaches on your project now.
Critical Path Methodology (CPM) scheduling and traditional project management have the triple-constraints of cost, schedule and scope. Agile project management has the same triple-constraints, but scope tends to be “flexible” and the cost and schedule tend to be “fixed.” We will look at a simplified example of your child going to college and how it would be planned using traditional CPM scheduling and compare it to “agile” scheduling.
This session focuses on the practical and ethical challenges posed by integrated information management tools such as BIM and ‘drones’ in the construction/engineering industries and how this affects the work of project controls professionals.
