The search for a better way to get work done requires that we stand back and take an objective look at the project management process with fresh eyes. Thomas Kuhn coined the phrase "paradigm shift" in 1962 — which suggests that sometimes it's possible to see the same information in an entirely different way. Ty will talk about how democratizing work and empowering project teams is the paradigm shift that will increase visibility, ramp up efficiency and streamline repetitive processes.

Agile, Lean, ToC...these concepts are gaining industry acceptance and increased popularity. Introduced as pure process changes to project teams, organizations quickly learn that there is much more to "becoming agile" or "becoming lean" than introducing a daily meeting or a different set of steps. The result: Fizzled transitions with less-than-stellar results when the impacts of these changes on the overall system are overlooked.

In any organization, projects are done for a reason. It might be a sound, well thought out justification or a project could even be undertaken on a mere whim, but there are always perceived benefits behind every one. However, only some projects realize these benefits while other fail miserably, but how will you know? How do you determine that your project achieved the expected benefits? While many organizations are becoming better at defining the expected benefits, they assume the benefits are met and fail to follow-up on confirming the realization has actually occurred. Join us for the month's Project HEADWAY webinar when we examine benefits realization from a portfolio perspective. What are the key steps a portfolio needs to take and what are some of the pitfalls it needs to avoid? Join us for this month's webinar and explore the benefits.

In most organizations, projects compete against one another for financial and human resources as well as the attention of management. This competition, mixed with sudden lurches in organizational direction, can often have a devastating impact on a given project's budget, scope and schedule and, in some cases, it's very existence. How can the portfolio support projects and ensure they have the opportunity to realize their benefits? What are the steps the portfolio can take to ensure projects have the required supports, that expectations are being managed and that governance and oversight is being applied? Join us for this month's Portfolio HEADWAY webinar when we examine portfolio governance and oversight.

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.

Portfolio HEADWAY: Project Portfolio Management - Where Do I Begin?

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.

Portfolio HEADWAY: Selecting the Right Projects: Just Because It Is A Great Project Doesn't Mean It Is The Right Project

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.
