In this talk we will describe a concrete transformation experience in a medical sector company, with the operational office in Italy, and how it has been completely revolutionized thanks to PMI Disciplined Agile and Lean Change Management.
We will talk about successful changes and the less fortunate experiments, how the company developed its Way of Working (WoW) in an agile manner, even going so far as to reorganize the internal physical spaces. We will also take a look at how the aspects of the transformation program were developed: from the Portfolio to the Risk Management System, up to the revision of the Quality procedures.

Prior research suggests that information technology (IT) project managers (PMs) often fail to take adequate steps to manage project risks and that this may contribute to the high failure rate associated with IT projects. In this presentation, I will discuss PMI-funded research that explores how IT PMs’ mental construal affects four key IT project risk management activities: (1) risk identification, (2) risk impact assessment, (3) risk response planning, and (4) risk response enactment. This research contributes to our understanding of IT project risk management and suggests ways for improving IT project risk management practices.

An in-depth exploration of the new FAC-1 Framework Alliance Contract, highlighting new ways to create integrated frameworks whilst improving value and working effectively with the supply chain. Case studies from the UK Ministry of Justice, Surrey County Council and Futures Housing Group (the first adopters of the FAC-1 form) will help you learn why this new contract is becoming the contract of our time and was described by delegates in a previous PMI webinar as “state of the art”.
King’s College London Centre of Construction Law created the new FAC-1 standard form after 12 months of consultation with over 120 organizations in 14 countries, leading up to its publication in June 2016. The published form is already in use, has been presented at many international forums and is being translated for use into 5 other languages.
Case studies will show you how clients and teams can improve value under a framework or alliance, using connected projects to build on their experience and establish more integrated systems. FAC-1 makes this easier for all parties and creates a transnational basis for improved working practices.
FAC-1 is not a new building contract form, and instead is designed to connect any one or more existing building contract forms including:
• any national or international building and engineering contract forms including FIDIC
• any national or international consultant appointments.
Project Management topics covered:
• Procurement Strategy
• Contract Management
• Project Governance
• Collaborative Working & Effective Communication
• BIM (Building Information Management)

Donald G. Reinertsen was at Booz Allen Hamilton when he coined the term “Fuzzy Front End” in an article for PMI in the 1980’s. He did so because he thought there was something going on up there at the beginning of New Product Development but it was fuzzy. I interviewed him for an article a few years later. By then he had come to dislike the term, “Fuzzy Front End”. He felt that, after more study, there were a number of tools and processes in place (some for decades), that made the front end into a repeatable process. Together we changed the original premise to “Fuzzy Logic” for the article. That concept of Fuzzy Logic (sampling the environment, the market, technology, the competition, etc.) became the basic concept behind this important discovery stage and the basis for many popular branded processes like Hunting for Hunting Grounds™.
Never mind Reinertsen’s new thinking, the term “Fuzzy Front End” was catching on by the mid-90’s in the New Product Development community and perpetuated the myth of this stage as somewhat mystical. This webinar will attempt to demystify the new product discovery.

If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an infant's life, she will choose to save the infant's life without even considering if there is a man on base.
