The COVID-19 pandemic has forced colleges and universities around the world to move to remote learning for all classes. While some institutions and faculty are used to this delivery modality, others are jumping in for the first time with little time to plan and prepare. During this webinar, project management faculty members with extensive experience teaching online will share their best practices as well as simple, actionable tips that can help smooth the transition from in-person to remote classes. In addition, PMI Academic Programs Staff will present some of the no-cost resources available from PMI to supplement your teaching, including webinars, case studies, and more.

This presentation discusses real world practitioner experiences in PMO set-up and supporting technology to enable Agile adoption.
Prior research suggests that information technology (IT) project managers (PMs) often fail to take adequate steps to manage project risks and that this may contribute to the high failure rate associated with IT projects. In this presentation, I will discuss PMI-funded research that explores how IT PMs’ mental construal affects four key IT project risk management activities: (1) risk identification, (2) risk impact assessment, (3) risk response planning, and (4) risk response enactment. This research contributes to our understanding of IT project risk management and suggests ways for improving IT project risk management practices.

An in-depth exploration of the new FAC-1 Framework Alliance Contract, highlighting new ways to create integrated frameworks whilst improving value and working effectively with the supply chain. Case studies from the UK Ministry of Justice, Surrey County Council and Futures Housing Group (the first adopters of the FAC-1 form) will help you learn why this new contract is becoming the contract of our time and was described by delegates in a previous PMI webinar as “state of the art”. King’s College London Centre of Construction Law created the new FAC-1 standard form after 12 months of consultation with over 120 organizations in 14 countries, leading up to its publication in June 2016. The published form is already in use, has been presented at many international forums and is being translated for use into 5 other languages. Case studies will show you how clients and teams can improve value under a framework or alliance, using connected projects to build on their experience and establish more integrated systems. FAC-1 makes this easier for all parties and creates a transnational basis for improved working practices. FAC-1 is not a new building contract form, and instead is designed to connect any one or more existing building contract forms including: • any national or international building and engineering contract forms including FIDIC • any national or international consultant appointments. Project Management topics covered: • Procurement Strategy • Contract Management • Project Governance • Collaborative Working & Effective Communication • BIM (Building Information Management)

As Digital Transformation efforts sweep across Government and Corporate America, many enterprises are finding that the results of their Digital Transformation efforts are much less than expected. A recent survey of one hundred Digital Transformation efforts internally measured using various criteria reported thirty percent of those efforts were deemed “successful.” Corporations are finding that a key area of difficulty is analyzing the organization and how it needs to function in the digital world. Analyzing an organization today using standard techniques is little more than looking at the organization chart and “looking” for inefficiencies. In fact, the “traditional” organization chart tells us very little about how the organization actually functions. This webinar will present and describe some innovative techniques that can be used in analyzing how organizations need to address organizational transformation to provide successful digital transformations, beyond just technology change. As a group, these techniques are described as part of B. (Business) I. (Information) O. (Organization) Transformation – BIO Transformation.
This webinar presents the results of a two-year research project funded by the Project Management Institute about the performance of megaprojects.
