In this webinar, David’s objective is to guide the audience away from order-taking and towards becoming business-enablers on public sector projects. He first argues that the consequences of failure for public sector software projects is higher than it is for private sector projects, especially in terms of visibility (and publicity). He then recounts some typical order-taking scenarios and explains their impacts. Finally, David reviews some proven techniques for root cause analysis (e.g., 5-whys and fishbone diagrams) and then describes some of his own techniques for ensuring that business clients maximize the benefits they receive from technology implementation.
Moving to a more agile way of working is not easy. Most infrastructure projects are still delivered via a linear Waterfall approach of design, build, test, and commission through large and often disparate teams. Within these projects, PMOs are indispensable for Project Managers in ensuring they have the right resources, achieve progress towards goals, and deliver expected benefits.
Innovation of new-to-the-world systems is complex in a global economy. Increasing customer value while improving organic growth exponentially increases that complexity, particularly when that mandates a need to expand into unknown technologies and markets. In that scenario, managing multiple component streams and multiple vendors on a global basis would seem impossible at best. In the context of Concurrency, the seemingly impossible becomes possible and global complexity becomes manageable. This presentation encompasses the successful Launch of a new global system and examines the impact of Concurrency on time, speed, quality, cost and complexity. The criticality of a clear strategy and early dialog with all functional stakeholders will be discussed in the context of the overall system success and the elimination of rework or quality issues after Launch. And it all started with an electric toothbrush.
In this webinar we will discuss how Mind Mapping could be an integral part of project management and why it is beneficial to project managers. We will end with an introduction to the recently started “MP4PM” initiative.
The purpose of this presentation is to summarize and share the strategies, planning, and execution lessons learned from a large scaled Windows 7 to Windows 10 migration project at a large Health Care provider organization. The author will share the challenges presented, and the tactics and techniques developed and implemented by his team to complete the project on schedule and on budget. This is not an instruction guide on how to plan and execute a Windows 10 migration project. This presentation simply shares their lessons learned and best practices with the hope that the audience can harvest one or more point to apply in any future desktop operating system migration project.
