.Widely used management disciplines are often linked to a few simple frameworks that can be easily understood, and applied, not only by managers but also by the majority of individuals. Porter’s Five Forces and value chain analysis help to make strategy a key area for every organization to apply. In contrast, project management methods have tended to be too complex to be easily understood and applied by non-experts.

Widely used management disciplines are often linked to a few simple frameworks that can be easily understood, and applied, not only by managers but also by the majority of individuals. Porter’s Five Forces and value chain analysis help to make strategy a key area for every organization to apply. In contrast, project management methods have tended to be too complex to be easily understood and applied by non-experts. Modern project management methods were developed primarily in the 1970s and 1980s by expert practitioners (at the beginning mostly engineers) for practitioners (also predominantly engineers). The pivotal assumption of the project management methods has been that documenting every aspect of a project in detail will provide a high level of control of the planned activities during the implementation of the project. Many project managers ended up producing massive numbers of documents and swathes of paperwork, leading to an overall feeling that the role was primarily administrative.

Mindfulness in Project Management: Harnessing the Power of Awareness for Clarity, Calm, and Cooperation

Jul 24, 2019 2:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

What does it mean to be ‘Mindful’? How can one apply the practice of Mindfulness to enhance the performance of their project team(s) – and, while we’re at it -- ourselves? Mindfulness is nothing new, but in our age of constant digital bombardment, endless distractions, and paralyzing mind clutter, it’s more important than ever for PMs, leaders, stakeholders, and team members alike to be able to apply Mindfulness – awareness (and acceptance) -- to what we think, feel, and therefore do (or don’t do). In this webinar, participants will be introduced to Mindfulness as an invaluable Wellness concept, as well as a management approach and (daily) practice for enhancing project team performance, individual calm, and the overall wellness of any organization.

Systematic Innovation in Complex Environments

Mar 19, 2019 1:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

As the world becomes more inter-connected, it becomes inherently more complex and more prone to tipping into chaos. This phenomenon is not helped by the fact that most individuals do not understand the differences between how complex systems work. A lot of our assumptions are plain wrong when it comes to complexity – we look for root causes when there are none; we adopt command-and-control management strategies when self-organisation is the only viable method; and we fail to recognise that whenever discontinuous change happens, things will get worse before they get better. This webinar offers a crash-course in complex systems theory and provides real-world examples of how enterprises that embrace the complexity are progressively displacing traditional organisations.

Topic Teasers Vol. 125: Why Use Predictive Analytics?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: My latest project is to work with a small team to see if we need to add predictive analytics to our already brimming list of desktop applications. Frankly, I don’t see that we use even half of the features that we have now, but maybe some departments find value in them. To be honest, not being a math person, I don’t really understand why finding that we are 20% higher or 32% lower on some random statistic would do anything to help the business. The oddity is there! That doesn’t change anything for next month or week. What am I missing?

Taking Charge of Our Digital Identities (Korean Translation)

Security in IT Project Management

by R. Sarma Danturthi, PhD, PMP

Security foundations for a project should be strongly laid in the initiation phase, preferably when the project charter is created and signed to document all possible risks, threat vectors and security loopholes, and should include conceivable remediation measures. Internal, external and technology-related risk are examined in alignment with project management processes.

Topic Teasers Vol. 110: Call Center or Contact Center?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: I am very excited because I have just been hired by a start-up company as a project manager. Since we are small in size, I am handling more decisions about the structure of the organization than I would be able to do in a typical project management position. However, this also leaves me in a vulnerable position when I am asked to make management-level decisions. Currently, I am to lead a project to create a customer contact department. Should it be a call center or a contact center?
