Forecast Scheduling for Innovators shows you how you can forecast your project with just the project schedule, even without advanced techniques like Earned Value, Critical Chain or Agile. The author invented the 'Principle of Dynamic Scheduling' that states: If one thing changes in your project, you should have to change only a single cell in your project schedule to have the scheduling engine recalculate the rest of the schedule. Using this principle, you minimize your effort to maintain the schedule during the busy execution phase of the project. Dynamic Scheduling led to the ‘Principle of Forecast Scheduling’: If your project schedule is set up as a valid, dynamic, robust model of the project, it will continuously forecast your project. All best practices described in this webinar stem from these two principles. By following them, you will take your scheduling to the next level. PMs will have an add-in (called Forecast Scheduling App) to realize these principles in their project schedules. PMOs will have a framework, checklist and app to analyze all project schedules. Key learning points: - What is your aim: Model the Time, Workload and/or Cost dimension of your project? - The principle of Dynamic Scheduling and Forecast scheduling demonstrated in real-life project schedules - What benefits to expect from Dynamic Scheduling and Forecast scheduling?

The purpose of this webinar is to provide practical experiences from using the PMI Ethical Decision Making Framework (EDMF). The webinar begins with the background and genesis for the EDMF, and an overview of the tool and the steps required. Next, the webinar summarizes the research design, collection and analysis process. Participants were asked identify an ethical dilemma, preferably in a business environment, and use the steps in the tool to evaluate the alternatives. Analysis includes what the participants did well, and what they struggled with. In final parts of the webinar, there are recommendations for further use of the tool as a structured mechanism to stop and think before acting in a rash fashion. This tool, was developed by the PMI Ethics Member Advisory Group (EMAG) which acts as a product leader in creating tools and techniques to facilitate meeting the expectations of the PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. This webinar is applicable to all those working in or related to the project management discipline. Objectives: – Explain background and intended use of Ethical Decision Making Framework (EDMF) – Describe recent EDMF effectiveness research based on student practical experiences – Summarize tool improvement and applicability recommendations
