Project HEADWAY: Megaprojects: How Different are They, and What Lessons Do They Offer the Rest of Us?
What do the management practices of mega-projects actually look like? How do these differ from the practices of normal projects? How do the results of mega-projects differ? And what insights might be useful and relevant managing the projects that the rest of us get involved with? In this presentation, Mark Mullaly explores the processes by which mega-projects are managed, and the degree to which they relate (and differ) from what might be viewed as traditional project management practices. He evaluates the track record of mega-project techniques in delivering projects successfully. And he explores the lessons learned and insights gained from actual mega-projects, and how these can be related (or adapted) to our own practices and projects. Join us for what promises to be a really big (and very useful) presentation.

Series consultants and actors David Berman and Jon Wellner will be on hand at PMXPO 2012 to take you from idea to air-date with night-vision clarity and behind-the-scenes information on how the show is made and how you can apply TV-show solutions to real-world project challenges.
We live in an uncertain world of tricky projects and programs. For most of us, this means ambiguous requirements, disinterested stakeholders and even teams dispersed around the globe. In this complex and messy world, we're still expected to deliver. This means managing risks, both positive and negative. But too often, risk management in projects is a boring bolt-on, rather than a fundamental part of ensuring successful delivery, and is of little value. In this presentation, we'll look at how you can engage other people to identify, own and manage risks on your project or program.
Project managers have no shortage of certification choices -- multiple certifying bodies offering multiple certifications each. How do you choose the right one for you?

In this presentation, Andy Jordan tries to disentangle the jumble of letters and offer some practical advice.
