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.
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.
We present a qualitative analysis of the project and programme assurance review outcomes generated by the governance requirements of the UK Government Major Projects Portfolio. The analysis seeks to generate new insights into the framing of review recommendations, the treatment of assurance review data (captured from the Infrastructure and Project Authority (IPA)’s database of review recommendations), and the subsequent progress on action that arise. While we found Delivery Confidence Assessments tended to improve over the project lifecycle, this article makes some suggestions for improving the current assurance processes.

Have you or your Agile teams had trouble refining requirements on an Agile project? Are your teams struggling with user stories and tasks that are too large for them to handle well? If so, you and your teams need more guidance to implement backlog / user story grooming. Backlog grooming is a step-by-step process of taking high-level (“coarse-grained”) requirements and refining them to lower-level user stories and tasks (“fine-level”) that are ready to put into a sprint. In RefineM’s Backlog/Story Grooming presentation, attendees will learn how to work the process to achieve fine-grained requirements that are ready just in time. The key to success is leveraging tools and techniques as well as the expertise of your team to refine requirements iteratively.
How much time do we waste thinking about, avoiding or worrying about conflict and what does that do to your work environment? Conflict does not generally go away unless you actively manage it. The conversations are not always easy, but getting a resolution feels good, especially if you both walk away satisfied. In the webinar, we will explore how to have productive conversations and provide you with a framework where you can be successful in winning a resolution. Attendees will be better equipped to manage conflict in a structured way, apply principled negotiations effectively to focus on winning a resolution and learn to identify their preferred style/s in influencing others and managing conflict and the additional strategies that they need to use to successfully resolve the conflict situation.
