Facilitating virtual project team meetings requires some conventional thought with a good dose of some out of the box thinking. A good project manager prepares well for all meetings and especially for those meetings held at a distance. In virtual meetings, the project manager needs to find creative ways to engage participants and know what people are really doing at the other end of a call. Have you ever attended a virtual meeting where someone is called upon and they don't answer or when a question is asked? Don't let that happen to you.

The advent of social media brings with it exciting new communications opportunities within projects. It also brings a new kind of risk. In the age of social media, project managers have a whole new communications dynamic to manage in their projects. This can create a radically different communications plan. It can also create the need to define communications recovery strategies and can impact how we define roles and responsibilities within projects.

Alot of project management is wrapped up in the idea of scheduling. Many project management software packages put the management of schedule front and centre; for some, it's all they really actually provide support for managing. Project management courses emphasize the ideas of managing the critical path, building Gantt charts and analyzing PERT networks. Much stress is created about project schedules, milestones, dependencies and deadlines.

Prioritization of projects involves making competing decisions. Sometimes the competition is between projects. At other times, the competition is between departments and business units. The decisions we make are based upon different projects, to accomplish different outcomes, by different areas of the organization. We aren't comparing apples and oranges; at times, we are comparing kumquats and bathroom tissue.

Project HEADWAY: Managing the Upside of Risk

Risk management has a bad name. "Risk", like "politics", is a word weighted with negative baggage. When we hear the word, we view it as focussing on problems. Risk management on projects can become a doom-and-gloom exercise in finding all of the bad things that might go wrong, and coming up with plans of what to do about them.

Change HEADWAY: Planning As If Change Mattered

Projects are hard enough when the focus is on getting the technical result produced, on time, on budget and to specification. When we add in the complication of getting that used, however, the challenge becomes much more significant. Organizational change requires the evolution of structures, roles, responsibilities. processes and - above all - behaviors. It is all about getting people to work in new and different ways, and to embrace why they need to make this change.

Not all projects are life and death...they just seem that way. For Ric O'Barry, founder of The Dolphin Project and producer of the Oscar-winning documentary The Cove, projects are very much life and death. Not just for his career or the future of his company, but for an entire species of intelligent and beautiful creature who have been exploited and abused for little more than entertainment. Ric has gone to the literal ends of the Earth and pulled together world-class teams from industries as varied as pearl diving and movie effects to find success on his project. In this exclusive presentation, he'll share his thoughts on inspiring others with his own passion and how to keep your project in perspective when your emotions might get in the way of progress.

Enterprise PMOs are the way of the future. They bring a tremendous amount of benefit to the organization through shared best practices, companywide resource utilization, enterprise risk management, and of course the economies of scale that can only be dreamed of at the department level PMO. More and more organizations are recognizing the advantages that can be gained by taking PMOs to the enterprise level, but these gains don't come by chance. To be effective EPMOs need to ensure that they have integrated portfolio management across their entire organization -without that an EPMO is merely an umbrella for a group of disjointed methodologies and functions. This presentation provides some sign posts on the roadmap towards a successful EPMO implementation.
