The presentation is structured in two main parts. The first part provides a description of current practice and tools as applied in the program and portfolio domains. The case study is introduced and analyzed using currently available tools. These tools allow us to evaluate some of the costs and to forecast benefits. The inadequacies and limitations of this type of analysis are presented. The second part is devoted to describing an original and powerful set of additional techniques for addressing these inadequacies and for extending understanding and control across the entire lifetime of a program or portfolio. These tools provide business management with a complete view of how the components interact across the program or portfolio, and to forecast how the corresponding costs and benefits develop across each phase of the work. This leads to the definition of a consistent set of reliable indicators for end-to-end benefits performance management. At each stage, the logical basis for the corresponding algorithms is explained and the techniques are applied to the case study.

Managers, team leads and individual contributors are often asked to "coach" another. No one really knows what it means. Coaching… Calling the Right Play is a very specific, skill-based approach to what is now required for every leader at every level. The approach works with individuals, teams and colleagues. Attendees will no longer be ill-equipped to have crucial conversations with colleagues, team members and direct reports. They will feel empowered to take charge and coach for performance. Leadership skills are not innate. This webinar provides practical “plays” with interactive exercises so that attendees can learn how to apply the skill in work scenarios.
Most Agile frameworks, like Scrum, Crystal and XP, were conceived by developers for a small team of developers. With the inherent maturity of the agile concept, 'old' practices, such as Lean, were employed to scale Agile beyond a team of 5-9 software developers. SAFe and Disciplined Agile are good examples of augmenting Agile with Lean, at the cost of restricting agility to ensure scalability and financial viability. Some Lean practices, like Kanban, were re-discovered and are considered by some practitioners as the next agile step. Agile beyond software development is not necessarily as easy as you hear in conferences. In the trenches the famous 'mindset change' is both ways: Agile must also learn to accept other ways of doing things and adapt to the needs of non-technical teams.
Agile methods, including iteration and incremental thinking, can work very well to relieve stress and sustain resilience in the face of hard times, particularly due to COVID-19. Join this webinar to take away key strategies to manage emotional and mental health and stay happy, healthy, and productive.
Recently Gartner claimed that 80% of today’s Project Management tasks will be eliminated by 2030 as Artificial Intelligence takes over. Will 80% of today’s PMO tasks will most likely also disappear too? On the other hand, the Project Economy claims that the future of work is about projects. How will this impact the future of PMOs? Will there be a need for PMO's? And in which form? This session, founded upon some of the latest research and practical examples, will explore how PMOs can adapt to the new reality and move towards a more strategic role to survive.
