A major step in any portfolio is ensuring that the organization selects the right projects to proceed with at the right time. While most projects have some merit, that merit has to be weighted against the value that other projects will bring to an organization. Not every project should be done right here and right now. This Portfolio HEADWAY webinar will examine the process of selecting a project--from documenting and screening the original idea, developing a business case, making the final selection and then prioritizing those selected projects. Join us for this webinar! This might just be the right presentation at the right time for you.

As a company grows and matures, so too should its view of project management. Accordingly, there is often an inherent recognition (or sudden realization) that the company manages projects and programs and needs to do so with solid project management processes. With this new awareness comes the opportunity to manage projects and programs in a coordinated fashion--thus the birth of a portfolio within an organization. But where should you begin? What needs to happen in order to set up that portfolio? In this Portfolio HEADWAY webinar, we will be examining project portfolio management and the foundations that must be in place to ensure that the portfolio is there for the long haul.

Remember the last project management basics course you attended? The instructor probably talked about the importance of the project plan and that by doing "proper" planning on your project the project will be successful. The plan becomes the silver bullet and if you manage to it, the project will be fine. While great in theory, there are many of us who are finding the traditional approach to project management just simply does not work for us anymore on some of our more dynamic projects. Our projects seem to be in constant flux, always changing, often requiring frequent changes in direction as the end goal of the project is moved, our stakeholders change and we are required to shift our project management approach. The notion of "on-time, on-buget, on-scope" seems to be more of a myth than reality and the idea of being able to plan the whole project at the beginning and sticking close to our project plan is long dead. Join us in our next Change HEADWAY webinar where will be examining the concept of extreme project management and exploring some of the opportunities this project management approach presents and the pitfalls we should avoid.

Project managers often express frustration that those in the executive and management roles within their organizations do not 'get' project management. They don't appear to believe that project management has any value or , if they do, they often pay it lip-service but do not appear to be committed to actually implementing and using it. As project managers, we can often see the direct benefits of the structure, rigour and control that project management brings and would like our organizations to take project management to the next level. But how? Where should we start? What approach should we take? Why isn't management listening to us? In this Project HEADWAY webinar, we will be interviewing Mark Mullaly, the President of Interthink Consulting Incorporated and a co-lead of PMI's Value of Project Management research study. Mark will provide insights into the challenges that we experience and offer suggestions for how we can try to gain the support and commitment of management to the project management process.

We all attend a lot of meetings. In fact, on projects, it often seems like an inordinate amount of our time is spent in them and they are not always as productive as we would like them to be.

This Project HEADWAY webinar will examine how to make this meeting more effective for both the project manager as well as the other meeting participants, ensuring everyone meets their objectives and gets out on time! Please join us. Make your next status meeting a valuable one, and not a bored meeting.

Change HEADWAY: The Value of the Lessons Learned Exercise: Gaining Understanding From Our Projects

Every project has a story to tell and from each story comes the chance to change and improve the way we do the next one. Unfortunately, and for a variety of reasons, we don't often take this opportunity as we rarely complete lessons learned exercises and integrate their results. It can be a very powerful learning tool for individuals, teams, and organizations to examine what went well and what didn't. A good lessons learned session is more than just an exercise in asking questions. It is about the willingness to hear the answers and make the necessary changes to avoid the same problems on current and future projects. It is not about finger pointing. It is about collectively assessing opportunities to build stronger projects. This Change HEADWAY webinar will explore what makes a good lessons learned discussion work.
