Project managers face two competing imperatives, 1) to be as fast and efficient as possible, and 2) to improve what you do and how you do it. The first one is about being on budget, on time and on target. The second one is about doing that better than you did it last time, perhaps radically better. In other words innovating the products you develop and the processes you use to do that. In this webinar you will learn a simple intuitive framework—a mindset—for thinking about your work, that enables that innovation. A switch that will make you and your team more adaptive, resilient and resourceful, as you enhance rather than compromise your efficiency.
Assurance reviews are essential to the overall good governance of major public projects and programs; in this webinar, we explore some of the challenges around framing and implementing assurance review recommendations during the life-cycle. PMI have funded a research study led by The University of Hull, which seeks to uncover how the treatment of assurance review data influences recommendations and the subsequent actions (or inactions) that arise, using a definitive set of data. During the webinar, we will discuss some of the implications arising from the findings of this study, explore suggestions for improving current assurance processes in practice and identify recommendations for future research.
BRM practices are not clearly understood, and not used effectively. The new Benefits Realization Management: A Practice Guide will help you drive more successful outcomes and better strategic alignment in your organization.
When a team leader who is a planner at heart is forced to work without an official project management plan, there are still ways to covertly organize the workflow that can closely mimic effective PM principles.
Using a mind mapping tool for group problem solving can be an excellent way to resolve complex issues. A good group mind mapping experience has the added benefit of improving group dynamics and eliciting better participation.
One of the most difficult, yet important, questions regarding projects is "What advantages will this project create for the investors and key stakeholders?" Projects and programs should be treated as investments. This means that the focus of projects shifts from delivering within the triple constraints (time–cost–quality) towards some of the more fundamental questions: • What is the purpose of this investment? • What are the specific advantages expected? • Are these benefits worth the investment? This presentation will provide an overview of a model for executives and practitioners within the portfolio, program, and project environment. It will guide them through the important work that must be addressed as the investment progresses towards the realization of benefits. The model will cover processes addressing the strategic elements of benefits realization which will bring the program delivery teams and the operational users together with a new perspective. Covering an area of program and project management that is rapidly becoming more widely valued, this presentation blends theory with practical experience to present a clear process flow to managing the benefits life cycle.
