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.
Statistics show that globally about 33% of the food produced in the world is lost or wasted. On the other hand, we have about 11 % of world suffering from malnutrition and hunger. According to UN based WHO, even if 25 % of the food wasted is saved then it can alleviate the hunger problem. The problem is acute and is obvious but yet organizations and people have not come to grips with it. Thankfully, during the last few years the situation is changing. The factors responsible for the problem can be identified under three approaches - Advocacy, Attitude and Know-How. How can we as project management professionals get involved and help solve this problem. What are opportunities from a business perspective? What are the options at work, home or in society? How can we contribute to the solution as part of our social responsibility? This webinar will look at these questions and present ideas and projects which will help save and recover food waste. This is an awareness program. The first half of the presentation will deal with issue of food waste and food recovery worldwide and the current practices. The latter part will consider solutions to the problem, especially with a perspective of areas where project managers can contribute.
Forecast Scheduling for Innovators shows you how you can forecast your project with just the project schedule, even without advanced techniques like Earned Value, Critical Chain or Agile.
Project risks can give negative impacts on project objectives such as delay, cost overruns, decrease in quality and security aspects, then we can observe serious project failures. Risk management aims to identify the possible causes of threats and opportunities, to assess them qualitatively and quantitatively and to propose an action plan for risks deemed critical in order to decrease the undesirable effects on project objectives. Complex projects are affected by numerous risks and opportunities because of their complex organizational plan with a large number of stakeholders, complex planning with a long life-cycle, complex resource management, technical issues, and particular environmental factors.
Business analytics have the potential to drastically change how business decisions are made.

We will explore how successful project leaders take ownership of their situation and apply design thinking, creative problem solving, brain neuroscience, and other concepts to suit their particular environment.

Project Management Processes, both predictive and adaptive, are applied to a variety of projects including "repeating projects." This webinar addresses the processes of initiate, plan, execute, monitor/control, and close (as well as burn down charts in Agile) related to piloting a small general aviation aircraft. The webinar will explain the type of aircraft, the procedures involved in everything from takeoff to touchdown (landing), and finally how this application can help you "land" your next project.
