Agile planning is widely different from Waterfall planning based on Gantt charts. There are many factors to consider when developing an Agile plan to make sure it increases successful project delivery. How can you use these steps to proactively approach Agile planning? In this webinar, attendees will learn the components of an Agile plan and how to create one. They will learn about the “onion” model of Agile planning and consider each step in the planning process, particularly product planning and release planning. They will leave with the knowledge necessary to construct their own Agile plans.

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
The four knowledge cornerstones of project risk management are: • Project Management (how to run a project) • Earned Value Management (how to measure project performance) • Risk Management (how to identify and mitigate risks) • Subcontract Management (how to manage subcontractors) This Webinar addresses how to manage subcontracts. Many companies today subcontract out a majority of their work. As a result, the subcontract becomes a risk to the project. This Webinar focuses on how to select a subcontractor and how to monitor a subcontractor to minimize this risk. The Webinar will cover the subcontractor selection process, subcontractor planning considerations, and types of subcontractor changes. Subcontractor risk stories are presented as an example of how to avoid pitfalls.

How do you incorporate risk mitigation plans into the Integrated Master Schedule (IMS)? This is important because it is useful to be able to see the status of the mitigation plan in the IMS and the impact on other tasks if the mitigation plan begins to slip. This webinar presents a tutorial on risk management. It includes: the risk management process; risk identification methods; risk analysis techniques; risk response (handling) methods; and risk monitor and control approaches. Finally, the webinar will explain and show by example how to integrate a risk mitigation plan into the IMS.
A complex project may have a very long and multiple phased life-cycle, a large number of stakeholders within a complex organizational plan, a complex resource management, technical complexities, contractual complexities and macro-environmental factors. On the other hand, complex projects signify a strategic importance for the project stakeholders in terms of their business strategy, brand image, financial and economic opportunities. Managing a complex and strategic project requires, in its life-cycle, a specific organization and a specific approach in order to reach the project objectives in terms of cost, time and project performance. The complexity of a project leads to the existence of interdependent risks, hard to anticipate and keep under control. For complex and strategic projects, it is necessary to identify and assess all the potential risks and opportunities through the whole project life-cycle, and develop action plans to mitigate, eliminate or transfer negative risks.
Les risques peuvent avoir des impacts négatifs sur les objectifs des projets tels que le retard, le surcoût, la diminution des aspects de qualité et de sécurité. Les projets complexes sont affectés par de nombreux risques et opportunités en raison de leur plan organisationnel complexe avec un grand nombre de parties prenantes, une planification complexe avec un long cycle de vie, une gestion complexe des ressources, des problèmes techniques et des facteurs environnementaux. Ce type de projet peut également présenter une importance stratégique pour les parties prenantes. Il est essentiel d'identifier et d'analyser les risques et les opportunités tout au long du cycle de vie du projet et d'élaborer des plans d’action afin de réduire les effets négatifs des risques. Dans cette étude, nous proposons un processus formalisé et systématique de management des risques pour les projets complexes et stratégiques.
VUCA , an acronym that stands for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity, has become a buzzword in management and business circles. It has added a new dimension to management principles and practice this requires a fresh approach to adapt to the new situations that are emerging in business and industry. Over the years project management standards have been adapting to industry practices and through its revisions introducing new topics and areas of knowledge. The objective of the standards has been to present information that is relevant and valid for today's operations. Various project management standards have been studied to assess if the four parameters of VUCA have been included and discussed and if they are adequate for the practising project manager to function effectively.
The four knowledge cornerstones of project risk management are: Project Management(how to run a project); Earned Value Management (how to measure project performance); Risk Management (how to identify and mitigate risks); Subcontract management (how to manage subcontractors). Project risk management is essential today and for future work challenges to manage a successful project. This webinar focuses on earned value management, the second knowledge cornerstone.

This webinar focuses on project management, the first knowledge cornerstone. It will explain the project management process and how it is used to achieve effective project risk management on you project. The webinar will explain what Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is and how project risk management fits into it. The future of work and how project risk management will be affected is presented.
