Les risques peuvent avoir des impacts négatifs sur les objectifs des projets tels que le retard, le surcoût, la diminution des aspects de qualité et de sécurité. Les projets complexes sont affectés par de nombreux risques et opportunités en raison de leur plan organisationnel complexe avec un grand nombre de parties prenantes, une planification complexe avec un long cycle de vie, une gestion complexe des ressources, des problèmes techniques et des facteurs environnementaux. Ce type de projet peut également présenter une importance stratégique pour les parties prenantes. Il est essentiel d'identifier et d'analyser les risques et les opportunités tout au long du cycle de vie du projet et d'élaborer des plans d’action afin de réduire les effets négatifs des risques. Dans cette étude, nous proposons un processus formalisé et systématique de management des risques pour les projets complexes et stratégiques.
One of the most prominent Management buzz phrases is “Organizational Culture”, and given the difficulty most organizations encounter as they attempt to change their existing ‘Culture’, or even as they try to define it, 'Culture' would appear to have almost magical incomprehensible properties. Defined simplistically, 'Culture' is a collection of specific behaviours that are in synch with the often unstated values of the organization, and it supports and reinforces a sometimes similarly unstated vision of our work environment.
Infrastructure Projects are largely intended to benefit the general public, and usually, the government is the Sponsor. Thus, Infrastructure Development Projects have a varied spectrum of Stakeholders. A delay in such Projects - for instance, the construction of a road, a power plant, or a water reservoir- can have negative implications for the population and may even result in political and economic issues at the national level. This webinar will look into various reasons for delays in infrastructure projects as well as mitigation proposals. Information Technology, Procurement, Production, Human Resources and even Consulting related projects are usually part of an Infrastructure Portfolio, so this Webinar is also relevant to professionals looking to improve these processes.

This webinar is a review of the resurgence of Lean principles describing why and how Lean evolved and why it failed to adapt to the modern market. Practices like Kanban, Kaizen, Theory of Constraints, Servant Leader, to name just a few, are not new. The second part of the webinar is an analysis of Lean vs Agile using DevOps, RPA and AI - three of the 'new' practices seen as Agile evolution.
The process of project management is the process of making decisions. Much of our thinking about how to make decisions reflect an ideal generally called rational economic actor. In an ideal world, you weigh the alternatives based on reliable data, compute the most advantageous path and decide to choose that course. We maximize the expected economic outcome given some set of constraints. Ideally, we do this in a timely manner using a process that is transparent and inspectable. Everyone involved can understands why that particular decision was made. In the messy real world, we down-select the alternatives to consider. We work with limited data, fuzzy or even inaccurate data and, frequently, decide to take the path of least resistance. Getting to better decisions requires some planning well before the decision is to be taken. Increasingly we acknowledge the role our inherent biases play in our decisions. The insights of behavioral economics allow us, up front, to design decision making strategies and processes which limit the role of our cognitive biases. No process will immunize us against all failures but knowing what to look out for increases our success rate. During this talk we will examine how to increase the chances that our decisions will actually advance our project’s objectives without being stick in analysis paralysis. We will discuss how to make your decision making more aligned with your goals and make those decisions quicker and more reality based.
Many people claimed to have worked under a bad boss. Bad bosses are a top reason that good people leave a company, and they are bad for a company's bottom line. But what makes a bad boss? Is there a way to identify a bad boss? Is someone a bad boss, or do they simply communicate poorly? In this webinar, the presenter, Ryan Haag, walks you through his experiences with two particularly bad bosses and uses them as examples to help you identify bad bosses and to be able to work through them.
