Project HEADWAY: Where is Your Team Anyway? Facilitating Virtually

Dec 21, 2010 12:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
webinar

Facilitating virtual project team meetings requires some conventional thought with a good dose of some out of the box thinking. A good project manager prepares well for all meetings and especially for those meetings held at a distance. In virtual meetings, the project manager needs to find creative ways to engage participants and know what people are really doing at the other end of a call. Have you ever attended a virtual meeting where someone is called upon and they don't answer or when a question is asked? Don't let that happen to you.

Project Organizing for Tackling Grand Challenges in Emergent Markets

Jul 8, 2022 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
webinar

Lessons from Brazil’s Social Housing Movement This webinar will illuminate novel forms of project organizing to tackle grand challenges in emergent economies. So ,shed light on novel forms of project organizing to tackle socio-economic problems that are so complex, uncertain, and difficult to resolve that they can often seem intractable, with an emphasis on developing countries. Drawing from extensive fieldwork on the emergence of participatory social movement organizations that nest self-governing project teams to tackle the housing crisis in São Paulo, Brazil, Nuno will share how organizations can harness the power of self-managed projects to unleash cooperation, creativity, and adaptability without compromising internal organizational cohesiveness. A key insight Nuno will share is how to create a virtuous architecture of participation: one where by leveraging managerial control to build order inside the self-managed project teams, the organization builds capacity for the projects to contribute to spontaneous self-organizing activities, the result of which increases the beneficial effect of self-governing projects. Nuno will discuss implications to private and public-sector organizations which are willing to consider establishing autonomous project teams in the pursuit of solutions for grand challenges.

Project Portfolio Management in the Construction Sector: Alignment with Organizational Strategies

Jun 7, 2022 7:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
webinar

Project portfolio management (PPM), when tailored to context, improves the effectiveness of senior management decision making on selecting, prioritizing, funding, monitoring, and adjusting projects. Such portfolio-level approaches can improve alignment with an organization’s strategy and enhance return-on-investment (ROI). Although the construction sector is strongly project-based and represents a major segment of the global economy (13% of GDP $ 10 trillion in 2018 projected to $14 Trillion by 2025), little is known about whether and how Project Portfolio Management (PPM) can provide benefits in this important sector. The research team from Australia and the United Kingdom investigated approaches to strategic alignment and PPM through inquiring into project-based practices of organizations in the construction sector. We found that PPM approaches are used in the case firms investigated, despite the fact that the terms ‘portfolio’ and ‘portfolio management’ were not always used. Our findings also show PPM approaches being tailored to suit the construction context.
