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)

The Fast, Flexible and Fact based Front End: Examining Discovery the Not So Fuzzy Front End of Innovation
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.
In this session, you will learn how to conduct a structured Debrief to assure your team can scale successes and eliminate the failures that may have occurred during the length of the project.
Project Management teams need the advantage of an iterative planning and execution model to keep them moving in an aligned direction. It is this type of discipline that will ensure a high-performing team culture.
The Internet of Things, Smart Devices, Brilliant Factories, and a Digital Thread are all concepts with the future of Manufacturing for the 21st century. What do these concepts mean? And what role will project management play in delivering the value that companies seek in these investments?
A sea change in project management practice and principles is already well underway. The roots go back as far as knowledge created and discovered in the early 20th century, but received a tremendous shot in the arm when the Agile Manifesto and Principles leapt into the world from its crèche in Snowbird, Utah. Commerce changes the world, drives both war and peace, and projects both move the initiatives of commerce forward and actualize them in organizations and in society. Simultaneously over the last 125 years, the populations we deal with have become increasingly well-educated, sophisticated, driven by their curiosity and need for self-expression and at the same time various forms of democracy and people based leadership and governance have evolved within governments large and small. In the late 20th century, the forces of globalization and climate change have increasingly destabilized organizations and markets of all sizes. We live in an era where—as so many times in the past—change is a fact of our daily lives and the rate of change is increasingly. Meanwhile, the world of the mind geometrically expands, informs more complex products and service delivery while interacting with the effects of globalization and climate change in a self-reinforcing loop. We cannot manage—or more accurately—lead projects in the way we have in the past. Attendees at this presentation will learn about: • The context driving changes in project management. • A range of emerging approaches to project management. • The key thing project managers must address as new approaches to project management enter their professional context. • Pointers for learning more and flowing with the changes emerging in the field.
This webinar will be deal with the development and content of the PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and what resources are available to members and certificate holders regarding the Code. The webinar will also focus on how process by which the Code is enforced.
As Digital Transformation efforts sweep across Government and Corporate America, many enterprises are finding that the results of their Digital Transformation efforts are much less than expected. A recent survey of one hundred Digital Transformation efforts internally measured using various criteria reported thirty percent of those efforts were deemed “successful.” Corporations are finding that a key area of difficulty is analyzing the organization and how it needs to function in the digital world. Analyzing an organization today using standard techniques is little more than looking at the organization chart and “looking” for inefficiencies. In fact, the “traditional” organization chart tells us very little about how the organization actually functions. This webinar will present and describe some innovative techniques that can be used in analyzing how organizations need to address organizational transformation to provide successful digital transformations, beyond just technology change. As a group, these techniques are described as part of B. (Business) I. (Information) O. (Organization) Transformation – BIO Transformation.
This presentation will briefly describe how to define requirements for selecting a requirements management tool. We also discuss how to define a requirements architecture for your requirements methodology and organization. Finally, this talk will suggest ways to overcome common road blocks of implementing a requirements management tool once selected – including dealing with tool limitations and user adoption challenges.
Documentation is an essential, yet often misunderstood, project management tool. In some organizations, documentation is at the discretion of the project manager. In other cases, there are endless check lists and paperwork requirements to manage. In this webinar, we will cover the basics of documentation, the risk management benefits of documentation, and how documentation is a demonstration of professionalism. You will also learn how to use documentation to manage contracts and financial requirements.
