Defining a solution to a problem without conducting a cause/effect analysis is like shooting an arrow without aiming. By utilizing this presentation, you are ensuring that the solution you define will hit the mark by getting to the root cause of problems and understanding their impacts.
The forces that cause projects to change bring conflict in their wake. Here's how to handle it.
Remember the last project management basics course you attended? The instructor probably talked about the importance of the project plan and that by doing "proper" planning on your project the project will be successful. The plan becomes the silver bullet and if you manage to it, the project will be fine. While great in theory, there are many of us who are finding the traditional approach to project management just simply does not work for us anymore on some of our more dynamic projects. Our projects seem to be in constant flux, always changing, often requiring frequent changes in direction as the end goal of the project is moved, our stakeholders change and we are required to shift our project management approach. The notion of "on-time, on-buget, on-scope" seems to be more of a myth than reality and the idea of being able to plan the whole project at the beginning and sticking close to our project plan is long dead. Join us in our next Change HEADWAY webinar where will be examining the concept of extreme project management and exploring some of the opportunities this project management approach presents and the pitfalls we should avoid.
This webinar focuses on various aspects of piloting change in organizations when change is largely implemented via projects.
We all know that detailed planning is essential for good project management. What we often don't realize is that even stronger project management practices also include planning for change management. As project managers, we should incorporate change management activities into our project management plans to increase the likelihood that our projects will have lasting, long term success. This gantthead Change HEADWAY webinar will examine the key change management activities you should consider and how they will impact the project. Join us - it might change your perspective.
Projects are about change: changing locations, changing technology, changing people, changing processes. Successful change is, in part, about doing a project at just the right time. So how do you know if your organization is ready for your project? How do you know if the timing is right to ensure a successful project and successful change? This Change HEADWAY webinar will focus on how change management techniques can be used to understand where your organization is at prior to embarking on the project.
Every project has a story to tell and from each story comes the chance to change and improve the way we do the next one. Unfortunately, and for a variety of reasons, we don't often take this opportunity as we rarely complete lessons learned exercises and integrate their results. It can be a very powerful learning tool for individuals, teams, and organizations to examine what went well and what didn't. A good lessons learned session is more than just an exercise in asking questions. It is about the willingness to hear the answers and make the necessary changes to avoid the same problems on current and future projects. It is not about finger pointing. It is about collectively assessing opportunities to build stronger projects. This Change HEADWAY webinar will explore what makes a good lessons learned discussion work.
As a project manager, you will typically focus on bringing the project in on time, on budget and to the approved scope. Your focus is making sure you and your team are accomplishing what you have been tasked to do given the constraints in place. However, organizations are increasingly measuring project success not simply against the on time/one budget criteria, but also against how much and how well the product of a project is being used. One of the emerging disciplines that project managers can use to assist them and really integrate the project's product into the organization in a sustainable way is Change Management. Change Management is viewed more and more as critical to project and organizational success. In this Change HEADWAY webinar, we will be examining the change management process from a project manager's perspective to understand how change management can impact all aspects of your project.
Projects are hard enough when the focus is on getting the technical result produced, on time, on budget and to specification. When we add in the complication of getting that used, however, the challenge becomes much more significant. Organizational change requires the evolution of structures, roles, responsibilities. processes and - above all - behaviours. It is all about getting people to work in new and different ways, and to embrace why they need to make this change.
