The Chapter Leader Orientation is designed as an introduction for volunteers who are new to chapter leadership, new to the board or taking on a new role. However, the sessions are available to, and can benefit, any chapter leader. Getting a refresher on chapter governance, or brushing up on leadership theories can help make chapter leaders stronger, and chapters more successful. With the 2019 Chapter Leader Orientation, look for new modules for two more chapter leader functions: Volunteer Engagement and Chapter Finance. Register today for the 2019 Chapter Leader Orientation!

This webinar is for project managers who are seeking new tools and approaches. While this presentation is not in any way meant to be a thorough discussion or analysis of Gemba Kaizen, it touches on how to apply specific Kaizen techniques and processes towards ANY project, and more importantly how to have a Kaizen mindset to improve policies, processes, and morale while, or through, the act of reducing waste (Muda).
Requirements are a key driver for any project and there is a direct relationship between the accuracy of requirements and the outcome of a project. In many cases their is a direct link between scope and requirements, hence requirement definition impacts project scope. Every project benefits by having a well defined project scope that helps define boundaries for the project, the primary outcome/goal/deliverable to be achieved and success metrics (what does "done" look like") We'll discuss how Design Sprint methods can be used to help project managers and teams at-large ensure alignment between current problem/challenge, scope of work and requirements for the project overall.
Research has found that over half of projects are combining agile and predictive practices. This seminar will describe the research results which should be helpful for PMs who have projects that require some of each kind of approach. . We have tested the impact of methodology on project success and have ideas to share about how well hybrid project management achieves our 3 measures of project success: Time/budget, scope/quality, and stakeholder success.
La gestión de proyectos de la cadena de suministros (SCM) es una disciplina muy compleja que incluye una serie de procesos y servicios, específicos y concretos, que juega un papel central, con la finalidad de proporcionar soluciones viables para que cada proyecto relacionada a un mejor desempeño de la cadena de suministros en el que se halle involucrada se lleve a cabo con la máxima eficiencia y procurando la mayor optimización de recursos posible. No obstante, según el estudio “Enhacing Project Management” desarrollado por APICS en 2015 a más de 12,500 profesionales en SCM, solo un 9% de los participantes respondió que sus proyectos llegaron, al menos en un 90%, a cumplir con los objetivos de tiempo, costo y alcance Adicionalmente, un 62% indicó un nivel de stress significativo en su rol en proyectos de la SCM, siendo la fase de ejecución la más desafiante de gestionar con los involucrados. No obstante, en la actualidad no existe un estándar especializado y mundialmente aceptado por los profesionales vinculados a la gestión de iniciativas de la SCM, que brinde lineamientos claves sobre qué entregables, procesos, herramientas, técnicas e interesados pueden considerarse para dirigir un proyecto de SCM de principio a fin, garantizando un nivel de servicio adecuado y un uso mínimo de recursos físicos, tecnológicos y humanos. Por lo tanto, es de vital importancia transmitir a los directores de proyectos vinculados a la SCM la necesidad de aprender buenas prácticas en gestión de proyectos relacionados a la producción, abastecimiento, distribución, planificación y soporte de la cadena de suministros, que garantice el éxito rotundo en la consecución de sus objetivos alineados a los beneficios esperados por la organización ejecutora del proyecto.
This webinar looks at Agility at the Enterprise level from a Project Manager perspective, explaining the difference between the new Agile Enterprise (a top down Agile approach) and Enterprise Agile (the bottom up Agile transformation) that is scaling popular Agile frameworks from team level to organisation level.
Planning is vital to your project execution and success. Projects are often multifunctional, requiring input from various stakeholders. Project planning often tends to be done piecemeal or not at all, often leading to missing and/or incomplete information and correspondingly poor results. Effective planning meetings will help you not only develop key artifacts but also provide continuous team building. This webinar will discuss how to effectively facilitate productive face-to-face kickoff sessions (both in person and virtual) and ongoing planning meetings. You’ll also learn about the impacts of culture (organizational and global) on team dynamics.
Project managers face two competing imperatives, 1) to be as fast and efficient as possible, and 2) to improve what you do and how you do it. The first one is about being on budget, on time and on target. The second one is about doing that better than you did it last time, perhaps radically better. In other words innovating the products you develop and the processes you use to do that. In this webinar you will learn a simple intuitive framework—a mindset—for thinking about your work, that enables that innovation. A switch that will make you and your team more adaptive, resilient and resourceful, as you enhance rather than compromise your efficiency.
Assurance reviews are essential to the overall good governance of major public projects and programs; in this webinar, we explore some of the challenges around framing and implementing assurance review recommendations during the life-cycle. PMI have funded a research study led by The University of Hull, which seeks to uncover how the treatment of assurance review data influences recommendations and the subsequent actions (or inactions) that arise, using a definitive set of data. During the webinar, we will discuss some of the implications arising from the findings of this study, explore suggestions for improving current assurance processes in practice and identify recommendations for future research.
