“Jugaad”, an Indian word signifying improvisation has become a buzzword in management circles.

How does the concept and practice of “Jugaad” relate to formal project management principles and knowledge?

All of us know about business processes. Any business development starts with a process organization. Before starting a new project, we also have clearly defined processes and a clear understanding of these processes. We have these processes groups in each project. We need the system approach for the project execution. Understanding Project Management processes in the context of the organization's business processes is very important. It'll help us apply various Project management methodologies, and their effective combination, as well as it gives the possibility of flexible management. This webinar will show a point of view, answering the following questions. Which business processes are we have in the project? How to effectively integrate the project management processes into the business processes of the organization? What could we do for their evolvement?

Communication isn’t something that stops and starts; it’s a constant activity before, during and after any Change initiative.
