How can you lead projects to double the impact in half the time? We asked ourselves that simple, but provoking question in May 2015. The aim? To rethink the way we lead projects and change that fact that only 30% of projects today succeed. Since then, 3 universities, 17 pilot projects and over 1850 dedicated project practitioners have experimented with and co-created what is today known as the Half Double methodology. A methodology not only based on the latest research, but on what works in practice. Suited for a reality characterized by complexity, chaos and uncertainty. A methodology providing you with the principles, methods and tools you need to capture the potential of your projects.

This webinar explores how to think about and approach career development in a way that all of us—accidental and deliberate project managers alike—can respond and relate to.
Requirements are a key driver for any project and there is a direct relationship between the accuracy of requirements and the outcome of a project. In many cases there is a direct link between scope and requirements, hence requirement definition impacts project scope. Every project benefits by having a well-defined project scope that helps define boundaries for the project, the primary outcome/goal/deliverable to be achieved and success metrics (what does "done" look like") We'll discuss how Design Sprint methods can be used to help project managers and teams at-large ensure alignment between current problem/challenge, scope of work and requirements for the project overall.
Everything we talked about since the start of the “mastering” series has been about relationships and making them stronger. Having a solid contract is a natural extension of those goals. When you have a great contract with the loop holes closed, you can focus on building a relationship as that is critical to project success. So, in short: A contract is a relationship and you create a project family. You agree to be bound together to get project management goals on the same page and deliver results.
As project managers, we strive to learn from our past experiences, and we guide and teach others to do the same. We leverage approaches such as lessons learned to fine-tune the methodology, all to make each project better than the last, and sometimes we succeed. However, when navigating the domain of the unpredictable, these traditional lessons learned often “come up short” for advice, hence the need for a different type of lesson that I call “strategic lessons learned.” Each lesson has a short quote that is purposed to help one retain the value of the lesson, and to keep it more entertaining the quotes are written using rhetorical humor, satire and a touch of inspiration – but you can be the judge of that. I will provide context and background for each lesson with the hope of providing project managers of all types and experience levels a variant way of looking at issues and concerns that impact our projects.
This is in the third installment in an 8-part webinar series, A Billion Dollar Project Health Framework, presented by Uri Galimidi. The series covers an advanced yet practical framework which Project Managers can use to assess the health of their projects. The framework consists of eight key project management areas. This webinar covers Clear Objectives & Scope and will include: · A description of the key risk factors within the project management area · Guidelines for assessing when to raise the “Red Flag” for each risk factor · Guidelines on what to do with the Red Flag once you have it raised · Real-life case stories illustrating the risk factor and its impact on your project.

According to some practitioners, Agile was initially developed as an alternative to Lean. In the late 1980s, companies realized that achieving perfect quality, the elusive Six Sigma 3.4 defects per million opportunities, is not enough for a product to be successful. Meeting the customer needs, or perceived needs, on time became at least as important as good quality. Agile started as a production development approach, where creativity plays an important role. In later years, it is used in projects and outside IT or manufacturing domains. This webinar presents the challenges in implementing Agile in Lean organizations and also introducing Lean practices to Agile teams, balancing excellence with flexibility and creativity.
Following her successful webinar, Consulting As a Service for Digital Transformation Program, Nathalie Bouchard, Executive Advisor and co-founder of Oneflexiwork, takes the innovative concept one step further and presents how it can support leaders in transforming their Digital Transformation vision into an actionable transformation program.
In an agile world, team members are empowered to make important decisions within the context of the behavioral architecture, without having to ask permission from supervisors or managers. But these supervisors and managers are coming from a lifetime of learning how to succeed in a hierarchical world, so they will need to leave behind those ingrained lessons. In order for agile to be successful at scale, leaders will need to change.
