The four knowledge cornerstones of project risk management are: • Project Management (how to run a project) • Earned Value Management (how to measure project performance) • Risk Management (how to identify and mitigate risks) • Subcontract Management (how to manage subcontractors) This Webinar addresses how to manage subcontracts. Many companies today subcontract out a majority of their work. As a result, the subcontract becomes a risk to the project. This Webinar focuses on how to select a subcontractor and how to monitor a subcontractor to minimize this risk. The Webinar will cover the subcontractor selection process, subcontractor planning considerations, and types of subcontractor changes. Subcontractor risk stories are presented as an example of how to avoid pitfalls.

Our “Getting Under the Hood” series continues with a webinar that explores how projects operate within a larger system for value delivery. Value often has different meanings dependent on the mission and vision of a given organization. The unique characteristics of projects determine the best approach for carrying out the work of the project. The PMBOK® Guide – Seventh Edition recognizes the presence of these interdependent and interrelated systems and provides project teams with the needed flexibility to conduct the work of the project in a way that enables the desired outcomes from the project.

Agile is often advertised as the silver bullet in the training class that will deliver "twice the scope in half the time." In principle, the topic of this webinar, agile implementation failures, may be unexpected from someone who used Agile practices long before they were called Agile and who was a champion of adoption of XP and Scrum in the early 2000s when Agile adoption was considered "crazy." One of the fundamental principles of Agile is to fail fast, learn, and recover. But accepting failure is not always as easy as it seems. When a manager “motivates” his team with "failure is not an option" or expects the Project Manager or the Scrum Master to be a "pusher" rather than a servant leader, learning from small mistakes becomes an important process. This webinar presents several situations when Agile failed, analyzing the root cause and what could have been done differently to avoid failure.

Your organization is on the path towards greater agility. All aspects of an organization can benefit from greater agility, and this includes your approach to human resources. Your approach to appraisals, the relationships that project managers have with other team members, the way that you recruit, and even the way that you refer to people all change in an agile manner. In this webinar PMI’s Scott Ambler interviews Pierre Neis, Agile HR and Agile Transformation expert.
In today's world the role of "Learning" in education has acquired great value and has become preferred mode as compared to "Teaching”.

The Technology Fallacy: How People are the Real Key to Digital Transformation, especially during COVID-19
Digital technologies are disrupting organizations of every size and shape, leaving managers scrambling to find a technology fix that will help their organizations compete.
