Hearing all the buzz about agile, wondering how you can get in the game? There are many ways to gain the benefits of Agile – from full on methodology to a hybrid approach. If you not ready to pick a method, but still interested in how you can use components of Agile, then this webinar is for you.
Most projects fail because the people resist change. Recognizing this, project managers are exploring how to integrate more assessments, activities, and artifacts designed to overcome resistance. In this webinar you will discover what the research tells us about why projects fail and the top contributors to successful projects. We will review some examples of the activities and artifacts commonly integrated into project plans. This will include the five most effective levers for driving sponsor and stakeholder engagement.
Since many change management activities are anchored and/or triggered by project events, it is critical to properly integrate change management practices into the overall project life cycle. This means going beyond simply having distinct change management activities included on the project schedule, but instead finding the critical interdependencies and joint opportunities that exist between project management and change management. This will not only help to ensure that the right activities take place with the right people at the right time, but also serves to create a more unified and streamlined approach towards achieving total project success
Change management is best understood as a part of project and program management and should be integrated seamlessly with project planning and execution. In this webinar (part three of a three-part series), we’ll examine the tools and techniques to manage elements in each phase of the project life cycle.
All future events come with some degree of uncertainty. When the uncertainty affects the outcome of the event in a negative manner, it is considered a risk. The ability to quantify the likelihood of the risk’s occurrence with the monetary value of its impact is a major goal of Risk Management (RM).

Project Management (PM) is a vital globally accepted tool that provides best practices to help ensure successful project delivery. Requirements relating to cost and value require special attention. This presentation will discuss the integration of value engineering and project management to increase understanding and improve project delivery.
Gregg Hughes will share with us a simplified approach for integrating risk management into earned value through the use of contingency reserves. Most project managers that use earned value performance management consider risk as a somewhat separate process with risk registers, mitigation and contingency planning. Gregg will present the use of risk work packages with budget and schedule values entered into the project planning process. As risk events occur or not, he will describe alternate ways to measure project performance. Gregg will also share some real life examples of projects to prove how effective the system is in integrating risk and earned value.
