How an Acceptable Level of Scope Creep Trains Clients to Become Better Project Stewards and Allows PMs to Deliver Greater Value Scope creep is one of the top indicators of project failure. As budgets shrink and capacity flees, it is important that Project Managers manage and maintain client expectations while allowing and forecasting a reasonable level of creep in an effort to satisfy and add greater value to the client and customers. Participants will gain a framework for determining an allowable level of scope creep and assessing the impact on resources and interests. Additionally, participants will learn how to chart a client engagement path that develops clients into better project stewards.

Según el reporte PMI Pulse of the Profession 2018, aproximadamente el 50% de los proyectos no llegan a cumplir con el presupuesto original ni con el tiempo establecido para su ejecución, monitoreo y cierre. Casi 47% de estos proyectos sufrieron corrupción de su alcance original, siendo considerados como un fracaso en su gestión integral. Son estadísticas que alertan a la disciplina de la dirección de proyectos a tomar acciones inmediatas para su mejora. La auditoría aporta un valor significativo en la gestión del ciclo de vida de un proyecto, desde sus fases de conceptualización y pre-factibilidad, hasta su transición a la operación y medición de generación de valor mediante la gestión de realización de sus beneficios. Dicha relevancia es evidenciada, al incluir a la auditoría como una herramienta y técnica en algunos de los 49 procesos descritos en el PMBOK. No obstante, en la actualidad no existe un estándar de auditoría claramente difundido y entendido en la comunidad de Dirección de Proyectos, que brinde lineamientos claves sobre que documentos y técnicas lúdicas pueden contribuir en la detección de anomalías en cualquier punto del proyecto y sobre cualquier área de conocimiento, y que permita establecer acciones correctivas/preventivas previo al fracaso. Como consecuencia, es de vital importancia transmitir a los directores de proyectos la necesidad de aprender nuevas herramientas analíticas de auditoría, que les permitan evaluar el desempeño general en la administración de un proyecto, con el propósito de garantizar el éxito en la consecución de sus objetivos alineados a los beneficios esperados por la organización ejecutora.

The PM community has great models for how projects should work, and a wealth of good advice on how to make basically sound programs and portfolio management more effective. Unfortunately the business of selling PM effort is often in conflict with the profession of delivering PM services. We see this in the form of impossible deadlines, unrealistic promises, and estimates based on client budget rather than true cost of execution. In this session we’ll explain why this enormous problem continues to exist, show you how to assess the resulting risk on your own project / program / portfolio effort, and share proven strategies you can apply to minimize the impact. Every PM, regardless of experience or skill level, will benefit from this session.

How to Manage a Multi-Project / Multi-Teaming Environment

If you work in a multi-project environment as a product developer, engineer, or R&D expert, then the notion of multi-teaming is probably familiar. Most likely, you have key people assigned to multiple projects at the same time. Planning and managing these resources efficiently is almost impossible. Key resources themselves are challenged with fragmented work, time pressure, lack of focus, ambiguity, a constantly changing environment and, above all, dissatisfied project managers. These skill groups serve several projects in a non-dedicated way. They switch from project to project based on demand. They’re between a rock and a hard place. In this webinar, Jan Willem will show you how resources should be managed in order to make multi-project environments successful.

The Manifesto for Agile Software Development might have been written for software development, but did you know that agile was based on lean, servant-leadership and other principles which can be applied to any type of project? This webinar will cover agile behaviors, practices and techniques which can be used regardless of industry or project delivery approach.

Backlogs and Burndowns: An Alternative to Gantt Charts for Planning Product Development Projects

by Kelly Weyrauch

Gantt Charts are a fine mechanism for planning projects that have well bounded activities with a clean start and end point, and with understood dependencies and sequences. But in the non-linear, sometimes chaotic world of Product Development, Gantt Charts can be inadequate, cumbersome, or even misleadingly inaccurate. In the session, we will explore an alternative using mechanism of Agile product development - a Backlog of value to deliver with estimations of size (effort) and a reality-based Burndown that shows a plan with visible assumptions. Together these mechanism provide an effective way to plan, track, and replan a complex Product Development effort.

Launch Trajectory – Why Integrating Definition and Execution Is Critical to Development Project, Program and Portfolio Success

It isn't easy to make exact copies of even a simple product, but at least you begin that effort knowing what "done" looks like. Development introduces a special kind of challenge – you only learn what "done" looks like at the end. The critical path for execution becomes dependent upon the critical path for definition and vice versa. The development path can be thought of as a part "altitude" you wish to attain and part "distance" you must travel to get there. We'll use this powerful analogy to explore why development outcomes vary so widely, why Agile methods are essential, and to help you plot the optimum launch trajectory for any given effort.
