The Manifesto for Agile Software Development might have been written for software development, but did you know that agile was based on lean, servant-leadership and other principles which can be applied to any type of project? This webinar will cover agile behaviors, practices and techniques which can be used regardless of industry or project delivery approach.
Gantt Charts are a fine mechanism for planning projects that have well bounded activities with a clean start and end point, and with understood dependencies and sequences. But in the non-linear, sometimes chaotic world of Product Development, Gantt Charts can be inadequate, cumbersome, or even misleadingly inaccurate. In the session, we will explore an alternative using mechanism of Agile product development - a Backlog of value to deliver with estimations of size (effort) and a reality-based Burndown that shows a plan with visible assumptions. Together these mechanism provide an effective way to plan, track, and replan a complex Product Development effort.
All of us have an opportunity—and an obligation—to give back. And one of the most significant ways that we can help to do that is to help develop the next generation of project managers. The challenge is that they are a very different generation. They have different values and different priorities. They also face a very different environment organizational and work environment. This webinar explore how to make a difference in developing the next generation of project managers.
Dans le cadre du développement et de la coopération internationale, de nombreux projets sont réalisés chaque année. Mais combien de ces projets utilisent l'expertise qu'offre la gestion de projets telle que décrite dans le PMBOK?
What went wrong? If you got everything right along the way and the change effort still faces problems, chances are you are not communicating effectively. In this session, we'll explore how communication influences change projects.
Shaping your Intercultural Project Leadership: How to Leverage Cross-Cultural Challenges in your Project
Intercultural gaps threaten many projects. National cultures, job cultures, enterprise cultures, generational cultures: any gap in those components can lead projects to face culture clashes…and additional problems. Yet, project managers can not only actively manage those gaps, but also leverage them and thus extend leadership skills. This webinar will highlight which levers project managers can use to identify and proactively manage intercultural factors within the project, and suggest practical ways to develop an intercultural leadership style which can be effective both at personal and team level.

Launch Trajectory – Why Integrating Definition and Execution Is Critical to Development Project, Program and Portfolio Success
It isn't easy to make exact copies of even a simple product, but at least you begin that effort knowing what "done" looks like. Development introduces a special kind of challenge – you only learn what "done" looks like at the end. The critical path for execution becomes dependent upon the critical path for definition and vice versa. The development path can be thought of as a part "altitude" you wish to attain and part "distance" you must travel to get there. We'll use this powerful analogy to explore why development outcomes vary so widely, why Agile methods are essential, and to help you plot the optimum launch trajectory for any given effort.
