All of us know about business processes. Any business development starts with a process organization. Before starting a new project, we also have clearly defined processes and a clear understanding of these processes. We have these processes groups in each project. We need the system approach for the project execution. Understanding Project Management processes in the context of the organization's business processes is very important. It'll help us apply various Project management methodologies, and their effective combination, as well as it gives the possibility of flexible management. This webinar will show a point of view, answering the following questions. Which business processes are we have in the project? How to effectively integrate the project management processes into the business processes of the organization? What could we do for their evolvement?

What must we do to bring about a Change initiative as smoothly as possible? Communicate! Communicate! Communicate! How much, and for how long do we do this? Until we get sick and tired of the sound of our own voice – then we take a deep breath and a drink of water and we start all over again. Communication isn’t something that stops and starts; it’s a constant activity before, during and after any Change initiative. This isn’t exactly news. We sort of get this. I can ask any audience in the world to tell me the ‘secret’ to good Change and they repeat back “Communicate, Communicate and Communicate some more!” as if it’s been forcefully injected into their cerebellum. The problem arises when the questioning becomes a bit more detailed, “What exactly should we communicate?” The response to that question is usually either a blank stare or the reasonable recitation of the reporter’s standby; Who, What, Where, When, How and Why. Not a bad start. If we’re writing a news article, then these are good solid questions. The Change Management problem requires all of those, and a few others besides. It’s not that the reporter’s questions are a poor tool; it’s just that they don’t address the peculiar psychology of the Change challenge.

One of the most interesting aspects of Agile adoption at an Enterprise level is Governance. Perceived by many teams as useless red tape and one of the major impediments for Agile adoption, correct governance can have a very positive impact on in the Agile Enterprise. Rather than being a micromanagement tool, governance can provide visibility on the benefits of Agile adoption as well as creating an environment of trust and collaboration. This webinar is an introduction to SMART governance, the type of governance that will support Agile adoption at the enterprise level rather than preserving the command and control culture.
The Management of Benefits: Opening the Black Box of Benefits and Revealing their Collective Production
In the context of projects, benefits management has recently been attracting the attention of practitioners and researchers alike. Project management practitioners are particularly interested in benefits management to demonstrate the connection between project management and projects benefits. For their part, most researchers aim to explain how to establish this connection, by proposing new conceptual frameworks. Yet, a crucial issue remains under discussed: how benefits management is practiced, in concrete situations, and which challenges practitioners face. Although many organizations are considering adopting formal processes of benefits management, benefits management seems fraught with difficulties when it comes to its deployment and its practice. These challenges have been the focal point of our study, which led us to meet with project management practitioners involved in benefits management in five large-scale organizations.
Can you adopt sustainable project management practices while adding value? Can one Project Manager make a difference? The answers are Yes. Sustainable project practices are about more than “being green”. Sustainability requires that we look beyond the scope, schedule, and budget of the temporary project and consider the larger “Triple Bottom Line” that projects operate within. The triple bottom line evaluates performance in a broader perspective considering economic, ecological, and social impacts otherwise known as the 3Ps - Profit, Planet, People.
Although many practitioners believe that Agile started in software development, Agility started long before the publication of the Manifesto for Agile Software Development (aka Agile Manifesto) at the Enterprise level. Started as an alternative to planned frameworks, in particular as an alternative to the process standardization imposed by Lean Six Sigma, Agile is seen by the Project Management community as 'the future.’ However, none of the Agile frameworks was developed as a generic Project Management approach. Most, if not all, of them originated as software delivery framework with the 'developer' role as the core of an Agile Team.
