This webinar is about Open Government and the Adaptive Public sector, and it is hinged on Power Skills on the PMI Triangle. Public sector initiatives can originate from citizens, but if a government is not open there will be no recognition for civic space, and it might be impossible for citizens to have a voice in what the government does. Open government creates the necessary framework for civil society and the public to be able to make input in governance; enabling citizens to hold leaders accountable via open data, while preventing wrongdoings on both sides. This webinar will provide insights into the concept of open government and explain why it is a precondition for advancing an adaptive public sector. Lessons will be drawn from Estonia’s openness-by-design, and some testimonies shared during the recently held Open Government Partnership Summit.

The evolution of the web has meant a considerable shift in how tools are developed, how teams work, and how the projects are managed. The days of waterfall are long over, and the stringent rules of Scrum and Kanban don’t necessarily apply either. For a team working in the collaborative web3 space, we needed something new. In this talk, I will explain my approach to managing teams and projects in the web3 universe. I’ll explain how deeply ‘iterative development’ has impacted the teams, but also the planning process. Buckle up!
What does the rise of AI—and generative AI in particular—mean for the practice of project management? How can AI help project managers do their jobs more effectively? What is the role of AI in producing project results? And should project managers be worried that AI could advance to the point that we ourselves are obsolete? Mark Mullaly dives into these questions and more as he explores the brave new world of AI, and what it means for the practice and discipline of project management.
Structured system management provides a new management framework for planning, executing, and providing oversight for both projects and programs. The new management system is a part of the American Society for Quality ANSI G1:2021 Standard, and is a non-proprietary management framework. The structured system methodology leads users to better define outcomes and outputs of project or program, to define key milestones, tasks, and actions required for its successful delivery, and to define interim metrics to track its successful delivery. It provides a new toolset and structure for excellence in project and program management.
Most project managers spend a big proportion of their time in meetings. We need meetings to get our job done. Yet, the majority of project team members and leaders consider project meetings very boring and unproductive. In this presentation, we look at how tapping into interpersonal skills can translate to better meeting outcomes. You will also learn about the right structure that will help you keep meetings on track and make them more productive.
Too many project leaders think rigidly about Waterfall and Agile project management methodologies and believe they must choose between the two. But many projects — especially those with diverse stakeholder needs and complex structures — benefit from a hybrid approach that combines aspects of Waterfall and Agile. The rise of hybrid methods isn’t tied to a particular time or event; instead, they have evolved organically as a response to the needs of modern, complex projects. A review of the key components of Waterfall and Agile allows project leaders to select among them to build a hybrid approach based on the unique demands of each project.
