Upcoming Webinars

Jugaad and Project Management

Feb 25, 2020 11:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

“Jugaad”, an Indian word signifying improvisation has become a buzzword in management circles. Originally used by native users to solve their myriad problems in getting things done in day to day operations, it is now being adapted more systematically and formally as a method to improve and innovate. How does the concept and practice of “Jugaad” relate to formal project management principles and knowledge? Traditional project management through its bodies of knowledge has espoused a structured methodology. One of the main criticism on the emphasis of detailed planning has been its unsuitability to situations and projects which are uncertain or developmental in nature.

Digital transformation is a phenomenon occurring across sectors and nations, affecting not only technical processes, but also organizational forms and managerial practices. Among them are: (1) project-based organizations (PBOs), common in traditional sectors like the construction industry, and (2) project networks (PNWs), the most favorable form of project organizing in modern service and creative industries. Project management, which is often used as an agent for change, plays a significant role in initiating and implementing digital transformation. To analyze the digital transformation of traditional PBOs and modern PNWs, comparative case studies in the context of commercial construction have been conducted in Sweden and in Germany.

Investing in 21st Century Skills: Preparing Young People for the Project Economy

by Cindy Anderson

“Project” is a huge, broad word that has such rich possibilities in terms of helping define how people do what they do and how organizations achieve their goals, create change, and deliver value. We are moving toward not defining work by its features or attributes, but in terms of what needs to get done, and figuring out the best way to do it. We call this The Project Economy.

Welcome to The Project Economy

by Cindy Anderson

The Project Economy offers so much rich potential as society optimizes and extends the amazing achievements that technological advance now puts at our fingertips. It is no surprise that disruption accompanies change, and that there can be resistance to that which is different.

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?
