We all struggle with the concept of uncertainty, but it does not deter us from trying from planning the unplannable. This webinar will focus on developing project teams with the ability to share and collaborate turning ambiguity from a deficit to a vehicle that allows your assignee's to produce added-value deliverables. We start this webinar by describing the current situation in how disjointed teams directly contribute to project failure. The effectiveness of a games model, through use of project-based simulation, is then characterized. The basis of this webinar is then illustrated through a number of situational real-life exercises performed. Lastly, we discuss the expectations of this approach, listing some of the lurking pitfalls of this method.
Dr. Blaize Horner Reich has recently completed a survey of projects to explore the influence of agile methods across many project types.
Save Time With Tools + Templates
The Project Workbook consists of 26 different worksheets/templates necessary for all projects, such as a Project Mini-Charter, a Spotlight report and a Risk Management Worksheet. The templates can be broken out into separate documents. Project managers can read the "Info" worksheet for more information.
This document can be used to manage procurements in your project. A procurement is the process of acquiring products or services from third parties. This process includes any preparations, the actual purchase and controlling the compliance with a contract or agreement.
The aim of the template is to capture lessons learned consistently across an organization. Capturing key project-related data in a consistent manner helps other project teams (in a different location, function, department) filter through and identify relevant lessons. The template can be used as is and shared via a local shared drive or in the cloud; or the format can be leveraged to create a SharePoint list to facilitate collaboration. Adapt categories and values to suit your needs.
