Buenas Prácticas en la Gestión de Proyectos de la Cadena de Suministros

Jan 24, 2019 11:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

La gestión de proyectos de la cadena de suministros (SCM) es una disciplina muy compleja que incluye una serie de procesos y servicios, específicos y concretos, que juega un papel central, con la finalidad de proporcionar soluciones viables para que cada proyecto relacionada a un mejor desempeño de la cadena de suministros en el que se halle involucrada se lleve a cabo con la máxima eficiencia y procurando la mayor optimización de recursos posible. No obstante, según el estudio “Enhacing Project Management” desarrollado por APICS en 2015 a más de 12,500 profesionales en SCM, solo un 9% de los participantes respondió que sus proyectos llegaron, al menos en un 90%, a cumplir con los objetivos de tiempo, costo y alcance Adicionalmente, un 62% indicó un nivel de stress significativo en su rol en proyectos de la SCM, siendo la fase de ejecución la más desafiante de gestionar con los involucrados. No obstante, en la actualidad no existe un estándar especializado y mundialmente aceptado por los profesionales vinculados a la gestión de iniciativas de la SCM, que brinde lineamientos claves sobre qué entregables, procesos, herramientas, técnicas e interesados pueden considerarse para dirigir un proyecto de SCM de principio a fin, garantizando un nivel de servicio adecuado y un uso mínimo de recursos físicos, tecnológicos y humanos. Por lo tanto, es de vital importancia transmitir a los directores de proyectos vinculados a la SCM la necesidad de aprender buenas prácticas en gestión de proyectos relacionados a la producción, abastecimiento, distribución, planificación y soporte de la cadena de suministros, que garantice el éxito rotundo en la consecución de sus objetivos alineados a los beneficios esperados por la organización ejecutora del proyecto.

Intrinsic Motivation: Team Mastery for Managers

Much research and many popular books have been directed toward understanding the pursuit and achievement of mastery. A common understanding has emerged that mastery is more directly dependent upon the amount of time devoted toward deliberate practice. In mature skill areas, mastery can require 10,000 hours or more of deliberate practice. An organization or team filled with members who are committed toward achieving mastery is both desirable and elusive regardless of the industry or field. The key to achievement of mastery on an organizational or team level is individual motivation. Historically, most motivational research and advice has focused on extrinsic motivation. Recently, research has focused more and more on the power of intrinsic motivation. Intrinsically motivating teams can seem complicated and even contradictory. However, understanding the practical sources of intrinsic motivation can help managers apply the principles to real-world situations and increase their team’s drive to achieve mastery.

Change HEADWAY: Extreme Project Management: Building the Bridge as you Walk on It

PREMIUM presentation

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 Closeout Checklist

checklist
by Kenneth Darter, PMP

While there are some subtle differences in closing a project with a party or a wake, a carefully defined checklist will help with either ending to the project. This checklist should be defined early on in the project and communicated to everyone who will have input into the checklist at the end of the project.

Continuous Integration and Testing

by Kapil Kr. Bhatia

Using continuous testing, one can immediately detect problems in code — before it’s too late and problems spread. Using a clever combination of tests, tools, and techniques you can tell right away when there’s a problem and it’s easiest to fix. The author uses a case study to illustrate the benefits of continuous integration (CI) and how it leads to better quality control (QC) and quality assurance (QA).

by Kenneth Darter, PMP

When Estimates Go Wrong

by George Dinwiddie

Custom software development is notoriously difficult to estimate. We start with vague ideas of what we want, expecting to fill in the details later. We’re usually doing something a little different than what we’ve done before, or completely different. How can we act more productively?
