- Non-Critical Path (Mass volume work)
Jose Antonio Gonzalez Vecino will show us the importance of scheduling in writing winning proposals with attention to the European Union R&D Framework Programme's methodology. He also covers developing projects according to schedule and provides some sample proposals.
Rob Newbold explains how the growing need for more speed, more predictability and more productivity is inevitably the need for change. He challenges the technology-first approach to projects and explains that when we create change we create conflict. Whether we resolve this conflict or simply accept it goes along way in determining whether we succeed or simply end up with business as usual. Rob will also describe what critical chain is beyond the technology, compare traditional values and relay race values and give guidance on resolving the conflicts.
The goal of any project is to deliver the desired value. Occasionally, projects face situations that may result in the potential for failure. Most project failure situations do not occur suddenly. This session will provide PMs with information and techniques to assess project health and develop a plan for recovery.
An Air Force program was suffering schedule slips, threatened budget reductions, and lack of insight into risk impacts. Booz Allen Hamilton supported the Air Force in implementing a joint DOE/DoD Integrated Master Plan & Schedule. Our team analyzed the state of the program, and implemented best practices.
This paper outlines proven techniques for implementing control solutions in your organization. It addresses organizational readiness, change management, and execution. The approach incorporates software development life cycle, project management, and employee develpment practices necessary for proper adoption.
The presenter thinks that, inherently, programs are not more complex than projects. Of course the investment is larger, stakes higher, data overwhelming, dependencies harder and stakeholders sharper.
This short training session reviews 19 essential rules for project scheduling, which helps increase the effectiveness of the schedules.
The paper outlines the key concepts of scenario based program planning through first hand experiences on how programs are managed across Auto, Aero industries. This approach helps to effective and quick decisions minimizing cost and schedule slippage.
