Stakeholder management is a new addition to the PMBoK. In this webinar we will see this new area from a development perspective and we will see how critical it is to fully understand the levels of interest and influence that stakeholders have on the project

Project managers tend to seek consensus amongst stakeholders for a variety of reasons. However, there are circumstances in which consensus can hide the correct option, create high risks and lead to the failure of the projects. From the Panama Canal to the Cuban missile crisis that nearly started the third world war, learn from the great world leaders how to provoke diversity of opinion amongst stakeholders to achieve the best possible solution for the success of the projects.
Despite increasingly complex projects, the topic of Stakeholder Management is often neglected until issues arise. This often results in project delays, increased cost, and/or scope changes. Because the PMI believes Stakeholder Management requires a stronger focus, it included a new chapter on this subject in the 5th edition of the PMBOK. This webinar will be led by a member of the team that wrote the new chapter, and will focus on what a project manager needs to do to put theory into practice in their day-to-day projects.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to: Understand concepts associated with a principle-based and systemic view of project delivery; understand the project delivery landscape and associated delivery approaches; and how these concepts are being incorporated in the PMBOK(R) Guide-Seventh Edition
In this short presentation, we will address the different elements of the PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (CoEPC), see how they concretely can be applied in real situations and generate a discussion based on a real (anonymized) case study.
This webinar provides a step-by-step guide to managing utility scale solar projects, including Power Purchase Agreement, Interconnection Agreement, and EPC Agreement.
Steps in Designing an Integrated Enterprise Project Management System for Effective Cost and Performance Reporting
Using waterfall, agile, and change management techniques, this webinar will cover the configuration points in designing an Enterprise Project Management system to allow data integration across existing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. Project Managers will be able to better understand whether their projects are within agreed thresholds and how to better manage compensation events.
New projects, big or small are massive change events potentially affecting people with diverse perspectives, needs, wants and organizational policy/process that cost tens of millions of dollars. Every enterprise will recognize common elements from this theme. Enterprises begin change events both big and small and always with good intentions. No project ever starts to prove some activity can fail or that people are not competent. Too often there is much activity with little effect on the key areas that must be addressed. People, process, systems and technology (in that order) are the poles around which all Planning and execution occur. By addressing these five areas and defining key measures you will have a more impactful and lasting project/change management program.
How can you structure your large, in-house software developers to make agility flourish? Traditionally, software development is organized into short-term project teams that draw from a pool of specialized talent. Developers often work on multiple projects simultaneously. The problem? Project delays often create lags that ripple across multiple teams, creating inefficiencies and frustration. Moreover, jumping from project to project forces our brains to switch gears, meaning we work harder to function at a lower level.
In this talk, award-winning author Steve McConnell uses the "Four Core Influences" framework from his upcoming book, Software Engineering Essentials, to dissect published reports of software project outcomes. He demonstrates how to use sound software engineering judgment to vastly improve understanding of software project dynamics, which in turn leads to correct diagnosis of failure, more effective corrective actions for projects already underway, and a significantly improved chance of success on every project.
