In any organization, projects are done for a reason. It might be a sound, well thought out justification or a project could even be undertaken on a mere whim, but there are always perceived benefits behind every one. However, only some projects realize these benefits while other fail miserably, but how will you know? How do you determine that your project achieved the expected benefits? While many organizations are becoming better at defining the expected benefits, they assume the benefits are met and fail to follow-up on confirming the realization has actually occurred. Join us for the month's Project HEADWAY webinar when we examine benefits realization from a portfolio perspective. What are the key steps a portfolio needs to take and what are some of the pitfalls it needs to avoid? Join us for this month's webinar and explore the benefits.

In most organizations, projects compete against one another for financial and human resources as well as the attention of management. This competition, mixed with sudden lurches in organizational direction, can often have a devastating impact on a given project's budget, scope and schedule and, in some cases, it's very existence. How can the portfolio support projects and ensure they have the opportunity to realize their benefits? What are the steps the portfolio can take to ensure projects have the required supports, that expectations are being managed and that governance and oversight is being applied? Join us for this month's Portfolio HEADWAY webinar when we examine portfolio governance and oversight.

This Portfolio HEADWAY webinar will examine the process of selecting a project--from documenting and screening the original idea, developing a business case, making the final selection and then prioritizing those selected projects.

As a company grows and matures, so too should its view of project management. Accordingly, there is often an inherent recognition (or sudden realization) that the company manages projects and programs and needs to do so with solid project management processes. With this new awareness comes the opportunity to manage projects and programs in a coordinated fashion--thus the birth of a portfolio within an organization. But where should you begin? What needs to happen in order to set up that portfolio? In this Portfolio HEADWAY webinar, we will be examining project portfolio management and the foundations that must be in place to ensure that the portfolio is there for the long haul.

Remember the last project management basics course you attended? The instructor probably talked about the importance of the project plan and that by doing "proper" planning on your project the project will be successful. The plan becomes the silver bullet and if you manage to it, the project will be fine. While great in theory, there are many of us who are finding the traditional approach to project management just simply does not work for us anymore on some of our more dynamic projects. Our projects seem to be in constant flux, always changing, often requiring frequent changes in direction as the end goal of the project is moved, our stakeholders change and we are required to shift our project management approach. The notion of "on-time, on-buget, on-scope" seems to be more of a myth than reality and the idea of being able to plan the whole project at the beginning and sticking close to our project plan is long dead. Join us in our next Change HEADWAY webinar where will be examining the concept of extreme project management and exploring some of the opportunities this project management approach presents and the pitfalls we should avoid.

Project managers often express frustration that those in the executive and management roles within their organizations do not 'get' project management. They don't appear to believe that project management has any value or , if they do, they often pay it lip-service but do not appear to be committed to actually implementing and using it. As project managers, we can often see the direct benefits of the structure, rigour and control that project management brings and would like our organizations to take project management to the next level. But how? Where should we start? What approach should we take? Why isn't management listening to us? In this Project HEADWAY webinar, we will be interviewing Mark Mullaly, the President of Interthink Consulting Incorporated and a co-lead of PMI's Value of Project Management research study. Mark will provide insights into the challenges that we experience and offer suggestions for how we can try to gain the support and commitment of management to the project management process.
