Upcoming Webinars

Compliance and Internal Controls within Project Management

Jun 27, 2017 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

One of the major challenges during the project gathering requirements phase, is to be assured that all requirements have been met. The more accurate the job is, the more likely your project will succeed. In this context, how often do PMs consider Compliance and Internal Control at this stage? Today, in a world with growing organizations, keen to launch their IPOs, with increasingly cross-department projects, increasingly integrated systems, corporate compliance is one of the fastest growing areas. Projects need to deliver efficiency, but at the same time, must comply with internal policies and ensure there will be elements to protect organizations from the growing risk of fraud. In this context, PMs who are familiar with the characteristics of corporate governance and internal control principles are more likely to succeed.

Project Managers normally use the same questions to understand the current status of their project and tasks assigned. We get so used to asking the same questions that it becomes a habit: What's the status on this? How are we getting on? Perhaps it's time to look at some other questions to assess the health of your project. Are you team members happy? Are they able to do their work without being impeded by others? What are they most looking forward to in delivering this project? During this webinar we'll explore the questions that you should be asking as a Project Manager to determine the real status of the project.
