Beyond Scope, Schedule, and Cost: Rethinking Performance

by Jim Highsmith
March 15, 2011 | 45:25 | Views: 3,008 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 3.98 / 5

Agile teams are asked to be agile, flexible, and adaptive, but then are told to conform to planned scope, schedule, and cost goals. They are asked to adapt, but inside a very small box. If we are to scale agility to large projects and bring agile values to organizations, then we must change performance measures. To mirror the Agile Manifesto, it's not that scope, schedule, and cost are unimportant, but that value and quality are more important. This talk explores the necessity for and the rationale behind moving to this new set of agile performance measures

Financial crises. Ponzi schemes. Production of toxic toys. Are these the results of failure in corporate and professional ethics? Each PMI member and anyone holding a PMI certification must agree to abide by the PMI Code of Ethics. But what does this mean for the individual Project Manager? This webinar will explore the new PMI Code of Ethics and how it applies to each of us.

As project managers we often have projects handed to us. We are often not involved in defining the compelling reason to make the change or do the project. Our involvement often begins with a: “Hey Sue, would you take this one on?” And off we go to plan and deliver the project, sometimes in a bit of a vacuum that can bite us along the way.

by Greg Smith, Donna Reed
January 27, 2011 | 45:11 | Views: 1,523 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.13 / 5

We often have questions about relating traditional PM practices to Agile practices. This is especially true in the area of risk. In this one hour webinar, Greg will cover traditional risk management techniques and contrast them to the Agile risk management practices. Areas covered include BURP (Big Upfront Risk Planning), daily risk management, and team involvement in risk identification. You will learn how to use traditional risk management in harmony with an Agile lifecycle and how to perform risk management at a level that minimizes waste and over-planning.

Great leaders are grounded in the values and ethics they embrace and demonstrate on a regular everyday basis. Ethical behavior is the foundation of what Peter Senge calls “Personal Mastery” – the ability to truly reflect and know what one stands for in the world.

Portfolio HEADWAY: Whose Bucket is it Anyway? Defining Portfolios to Manage By

by Marguerite LeBlanc
January 18, 2011 | 58:56 | Views: 1,011 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 3.98 / 5

We hear a lot about portfolio management. It’s a term that is often misunderstood or at least used to represent a variety of ways to manage multiple projects. But what is the approach to establishing an effective portfolio and determining the projects to include? How do we know what to put in the portfolio bucket?

How to Estimate and Use Management Reserve

by Mark Infanti
January 11, 2011 | 65:41 | Views: 1,284 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.21 / 5

When using an Earned Value Management System (EVMS), Management Reserve (MR) is both expected and considered a best practice. But the lack of understanding of MR and its use extends from government agencies to contractors. MR is an integral part of an EVM System. MR should be part of the original project estimate, but how much should you plan and how do you use MR to manage your project. This presentation discusses how MR is established (risk based) and subsequently used to keep a program on track. It also covers the common issues/misunderstandings and how to deal with them.

Project HEADWAY: Where is Your Team Anyway? Facilitating Virtually

by Marguerite LeBlanc
December 21, 2010 | 38:59 | Views: 1,419 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.03 / 5

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.

Change HEADWAY: Verbal Hand Grenades: Words and Their Impact on Change

by Marguerite LeBlanc
November 16, 2010 | 54:42 | Views: 1,616 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.05 / 5

Even when speaking the same language, we all interpret words in our own way, with our own filters and supported by our personal or organizational context. We sometimes forget that others may define or react to the exact same word much differently than we do. In addition, organizations and areas within organizations may use and interpret the same word differently, depending on the context. As project managers, we don’t always understand the impact various contexts and these different interpretations can have on an organization’s ability to successfully implement change. As such we may find ourselves dodging verbal hand grenades – terms that can blow our organizational change projects right out of the water!
