Food Waste & Recovery - Opportunities for Project Managers

Aug 18, 2020 11:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Statistics show that globally about 33% of the food produced in the world is lost or wasted. On the other hand, we have about 11 % of world suffering from malnutrition and hunger. According to UN based WHO, even if 25 % of the food wasted is saved then it can alleviate the hunger problem. The problem is acute and is obvious but yet organizations and people have not come to grips with it. Thankfully, during the last few years the situation is changing. The factors responsible for the problem can be identified under three approaches - Advocacy, Attitude and Know-How. How can we as project management professionals get involved and help solve this problem. What are opportunities from a business perspective? What are the options at work, home or in society? How can we contribute to the solution as part of our social responsibility? This webinar will look at these questions and present ideas and projects which will help save and recover food waste. This is an awareness program. The first half of the presentation will deal with issue of food waste and food recovery worldwide and the current practices. The latter part will consider solutions to the problem, especially with a perspective of areas where project managers can contribute.

Decision Making for Project Management

by Kimberly Johnson, Brian Cohn, George Gibson
June 11, 2020 | 60:16 | Views: 4,562 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.39 / 5

The process of project management is the process of making decisions. Much of our thinking about how to make decisions reflect an ideal generally called rational economic actor. In an ideal world, you weigh the alternatives based on reliable data, compute the most advantageous path and decide to choose that course. We maximize the expected economic outcome given some set of constraints. Ideally, we do this in a timely manner using a process that is transparent and inspectable. Everyone involved can understands why that particular decision was made. In the messy real world, we down-select the alternatives to consider. We work with limited data, fuzzy or even inaccurate data and, frequently, decide to take the path of least resistance. Getting to better decisions requires some planning well before the decision is to be taken. Increasingly we acknowledge the role our inherent biases play in our decisions. The insights of behavioral economics allow us, up front, to design decision making strategies and processes which limit the role of our cognitive biases. No process will immunize us against all failures but knowing what to look out for increases our success rate. During this talk we will examine how to increase the chances that our decisions will actually advance our project’s objectives without being stick in analysis paralysis. We will discuss how to make your decision making more aligned with your goals and make those decisions quicker and more reality based.

Per the Agile Business Consortium, business agility allows businesses to adapt quickly to market changes; respond rapidly and flexibly to customer demands; adapt and lead change in a productive and cost-effective way without compromising quality; and continuously be at a competitive advantage. The primary reason for moving to Agile is to achieve faster business value and keep you ahead of the competition. Agile is built for change - fundamentally, it is about creating Business Agility. It enables the enterprise to deliver projects more efficiently, with relentless focus on business value and providing the highest return on investment. Whether it is a software project, a new service offering or a new product, Agile’s twelve principles and three pillars (transparency, inspection, adaptation) are designed to reduce money spent on undesirable or unusable features which were built based on outdated requirements.
