2021 and Beyond....5 Disruptive Trends in Project Management

May 4, 2021 11:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

In the next five years, the world will see more projects than ever. The reconstruction of the economy, healthcare, social care, and society at large after the devastating global pandemic crisis, will be unprecedented in human history. According to McKinsey, Governments’ have announced $10 trillion in reconstruction funds just in the first two months of the crisis, which is three times more than the response to the 2008–09 financial crisis. These are millions of projects, which will need millions of project managers. However, despite this positive outlook, significant trends will put at stake the project management profession that we have learned to know in the past 40 years. We should consider these signals as an urgent call for profound change in our practices and a much needed in our competencies. A small price to pay compared to the unique opportunity that the project management profession has to lead what I call our new world driven by change.

Whether you are a project manager or product manager tasked to oversee an outsourced capital project, or an owner investing in a major project critical to the future of your business, you are most likely starting at a disadvantage.

Unfortunately, little has been written on the best practices for overseeing a project from the client’s perspective. Participants in this Webinar will gain insight into what is project oversight and why it matters from former Naval Reactors project oversight professionals. This webinar answers the question of how project oversight differs from project management and covers basic principles of project oversight.

The Agile Enterprise: Scaling Agile to Project Level Part 3: Build

Apr 1, 2021 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Agile has found its way into project delivery with the PMBOK® Guide and PMI certification recognizing the growing adoption of agile practices. Most agile frameworks, like Scrum, Crystal, and XP, were conceived by developers for a small team of developers and do not cover the entire Project lifecycle. A project is not limited to product delivery by a small team, and most agile frameworks are challenged when scaling up to the enterprise level, especially in organizations with a mature Governance framework where a Project Management Office has the responsibility for Project Delivery. In the trenches, the famous 'mindset change' applies not only to people that used planned approaches but also to the people that started agile in small product development teams that must learn the value of aligning their ways of doing things to Enterprise goals.

Project HEADWAY: What We’ve Learned From A Pandemic

Mar 18, 2021 3:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

On the date of this webinar, it will have been just passed a year since the world went over the cliff-edge of Covid-19, and found our reality ever-changed. Plunged into a disaster that few saw coming (although the threads and warnings were out there), we have struggled to adapt and cope ever since. Employees and whole organizations transitioned from commuting to working at home, virtually overnight. Supply chains were radically overhauled. Our perceptions of “essential workers” were expanded, as was our awareness of the inequities and challenges that many of these workers face. For project managers, how project work has been coordinated and delivered has been significantly transformed. We have had to innovate on the fly, figuring out strategies to plan, coordinate and engage teams that are not just distant, but facing their own challenges. There have been successes and victories, and there have been challenges and roadblocks. This webinar serves as a much needed review of lessons observed, that hopefully we can all learn from.

This webinar will provide you with ideas that will help you embrace the positive conflict that drives change and build your willingness to engage and manage conflict. The webinar touches the following concepts: the change process, pain vs. gain, change threshold, the change curve and strategies for managing conflict.
