Improving your project management skills requires high-priced training, right? But what if you need a different way to develop yourself—and you have a limited budget? There is a way to make this happen without breaking the bank.
The topic of the webinar, close to the border of psychology, includes those ethical aspects that are tremendously influencing our projects and social life as well. The presenter, member of the PMI Ethics Member Advisory Group talks about the psychological distance between our actions and their impact, about how this distance explains some of our temptations (especially when we fell pray to them) and about the broken window concept applied in ethics (something that we encounter more and more nowadays). Ethics tools available for practitioners are presented and their possible practical results shortly described.

초기 단계 위험 관리는 향후 프로젝트의 성공을 위해 견고한 토대를 마련하는 것과 유사합니다. 이 기사의 핵심 주제는 잘 관리하지 않으면 해로운 영향을 미칠 수있는 주요 위험에 대한 인식을 확인하고 생성하는 것이며,이를 관리하기위한 실제적인 단계를 제안하는 것입니다.
리더십이 걸리는 리더십은 사라지지 않을 것입니다. 그리고 그것이 그 선택입니다. 지도자가 태어나거나 만들어 졌다고하는 것이 아닙니다. 그것은 한발 물러서서 차이를 만들고, 그 차이를 가능하게하는 행동과 행동을 유지한다는 것입니다.

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.

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.
