Studies show that the key factor for job stress is not the job itself, but rather the fit between the person and the environment. And this begs the question: If you change your environment to a more agile one, will that improve people’s well-being?
By applying agile principles to business cases — by making them “living” documents in practice, not just theory — project leaders can improve and expand their contributions to initiatives, and realize benefits across a number of areas, from elaborative estimation to more transparent, real-time decision-making.
Any fast-moving project will be continuously evaluating alternative approaches to achieving the business outcome. Anyone who implies that this is simple and clear-cut simply hasn’t been in the room when these decisions are being made.

Project management is often referred to as management without authority. How do you succeed when you also don’t have any experience?
In today’s Volatile Unpredictable Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) environment, leaders that want to deliver extraordinary results, require a fundamentally different approach to change management.
For all that we know about education, and all of the training providers that exist, the training landscape for project managers is surprisingly uniform. There are introductory courses. There are certification programs. There is the school of hard knocks. And there is… not a whole lot else. But if we’re serious about project management gaining traction, we need to develop beyond the basics. This presentation explores what it takes to develop the whole project manager.
This workshop is based on a global survey (>3400), consisting of ten scenarios describing common ethical quandaries and the response that respondents made. Demographic Questions were also included. Participants will have the option to participate by using the polling feature to respond to these situations and observe the ways in which diversity influenced their decisions. Participants will understand the relationship between values, ethics and decision making and recognize the impact that ethnicity, culture and other sociodemographic characteristics have in decisions on ethical issues.
Programs serve as a crucial link between strategy and the execution of business results and organizations implement them to achieve strategic goals. Although the practice of program management has evolved in lockstep with the project management profession, the root causes of program failure remain. In this step-by-step guide, Irene Didinsky offers a standardized approach to program management, closing the knowledge gaps and variations that currently exist across organizations and industries.
In this webinar we’ll discuss organizational resilience, tipping point leading indicators, and mitigation strategies. The objective is for you to be able to identify the signs of diminishing resilience, and how to turn the tide before it derails your project.

Project management has evolved over the last 20 years. The tools project managers have allow for real-time collaboration and communication, but what are the common pitfalls that are still present today from 20 years ago? Despite new technology, issues relating to people and processes will always be present. How can project managers account for these issues given the tools they have at their disposal?
The Fast, Flexible and Fact based Front End: Examining Discovery the Not So Fuzzy Front End of Innovation
Donald G. Reinertsen was at Booz Allen Hamilton when he coined the term “Fuzzy Front End” in an article for PMI in the 1980’s. He did so because he thought there was something going on up there at the beginning of New Product Development but it was fuzzy. I interviewed him for an article a few years later. By then he had come to dislike the term, “Fuzzy Front End”. He felt that, after more study, there were a number of tools and processes in place (some for decades), that made the front end into a repeatable process. Together we changed the original premise to “Fuzzy Logic” for the article. That concept of Fuzzy Logic (sampling the environment, the market, technology, the competition, etc.) became the basic concept behind this important discovery stage and the basis for many popular branded processes like Hunting for Hunting Grounds™. Never mind Reinertsen’s new thinking, the term “Fuzzy Front End” was catching on by the mid-90’s in the New Product Development community and perpetuated the myth of this stage as somewhat mystical. This webinar will attempt to demystify the new product discovery.
