We are expected to ask the “right” questions when eliciting requirements to identify gaps. Requirements risk management is an emerging concept in many high performing organizations used to provide guidance on what the “right” questions are. This interactive session will explore the hand-offs between project and requirements risk and arm attendees with information to begin addressing the #2 reason of why projects fail – inaccurate requirements - immediately within their workplace using requirements risk management techniques.
Project Management deals with advancement in uncharted waters within a specified time & budget and needs to prepare a team to implement change and satisfy all those who may be affected with the change. The results/outcomes of an endeavor have a direct bearing on the level of satisfaction of every human in any capacity involved. This sensitivity requires close attention to behavior & attitudes of team members & all others involved. Some of the human aspects need focus to improve the situation in any environment.
Change resistance is usually accepted as normal, but this begs two questions - who gets to define “resistance,” and what causes it? This webinar examines the normal reasons behind resistance and then goes deeper into the interaction between the change team and those impacted by the change to find the real reasons for resistance. Further, change resistance is often used by the change team as an excuse for their mistakes in determining what needs to change (and what needs protection from change) or how they choose to involve others in the process (including what they can learn from what appears as resistance).
Misunderstanding leadership at different levels can often be confused with managerial skills when moving to important commanding-roles. Often this leads to disastrous outcomes or, at minimum, damage human relationships and respect for business purpose.
We all struggle with the concept of uncertainty, but it does not deter us from trying from planning the unplannable. This webinar will focus on developing project teams with the ability to share and collaborate turning ambiguity from a deficit to a vehicle that allows your assignee's to produce added-value deliverables. We start this webinar by describing the current situation in how disjointed teams directly contribute to project failure. The effectiveness of a games model, through use of project-based simulation, is then characterized. The basis of this webinar is then illustrated through a number of situational real-life exercises performed. Lastly, we discuss the expectations of this approach, listing some of the lurking pitfalls of this method.
This webinar focusses on the construction of socioeconomic scenarios through backcasting and the use of these future contexts to guide policy and investments for agriculture, food security and climate change adaptation. It also outlines the importance of scenarios for project developers in the definition of routes to follow in order to enhance their chances of a successful planning for the future.
Starting with an explanation of what it means to be Agile, we'll then move through an overview of the specific Agile practice of Scrum, we will explore how working in a government contract environment is different from other forms of work and how, if at all, Agile practices can be applied. Some of these differences we'll discuss include documentation expectations, projects that are not restricted to software development, and Earned Value Management. We'll also review some of the developments in government agencies leaning towards agile practices, and reserve time for question.
As the complexity of project management continues to expand, Organizational Change Management (OCM) is becoming more ingrained in implementing projects. This is taking the entire topic of Stakeholder Engagement into new directions. We are moving beyond defining if the stakeholder is an advocate or an adversary, and trying to understand what is driving their position. Understanding the stakeholder’s organizational, and personal, culture is helping project evaluate the stakeholder perspective. This “Cultural Intelligence” of the project manager can greatly improve the effectiveness of the Change Management aspect of a project.
Although we all experience transitions emotionally, our reactions may be quite different. Using a psychometric model to understand these differences may go a long way to facilitating change and managing people more effectively. In this webinar, you will learn about the DiSC model and how it can help you relate better to the people around you once you identify their style preference.
