Visual Control Board for a Strategic PMO

Feb 28, 2019 1:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

PMOs are an integral part an organization’s strategic plan for implementing improvement, keeping the business running, and directing change. The PMO has a wide range of responsibilities with a diverse set of stakeholders and an ever increasing demand for status. Thus, many PMOs are transforming into “Strategic PMOs” and assumed the role of defining the, and reporting the status of, the clear line of sight from Strategic Intent to Project Outcomes. This implies a method of consistent reporting status to various stakeholders, of extremely diverse projects, to stakeholders with various job functions throughout the organization. This presentation will examine a real example of creating a Visual Control Board for a HealthCare IT PMO. It will explore the entire foundation of the PMO purpose and how it provides a single visual of all projects. It will demonstrate a sample of the board as well as the purpose of the PMO as a strategic partner. The presentation will discuss: • Run the Business / Improve the Business Model • Strategic Partner Model • The Importance of a Visual Control Board • Do Our Project Outcomes Impact KPI’s? • Communicating Project Status for entire PMO • PMO Visual Control Chart Example If you want to better understand a PMO’s approach to communicating the health of multiple projects to many stakeholders via a visual control board, then this presentation is for you. This example is for a healthcare organization, but the concept spans all industries and provides important knowledge to help the PMO become a strategic partner with the entire organization.

The Agile Enterprise: What is different in an Agile Project?

Mar 8, 2019 9:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
PREMIUM webinar

The concept of the Agile Project Manager is almost universally accepted, at least in IT projects; although there is no Agile Project Management Methodology. Traditional approaches like PMBoK and PRINCE2 had always the capability to use techniques that are part of the Agile delivery: incremental and iterative development, early delivery of increments of the project, multi-functional teams, inspect and adapt, etc. Most Agile frameworks, like Scrum, were created by and for software development and are challenged when it comes to complex projects where Risk Management, Stakeholder Management, Procurement, and Financial Management skills and knowledge are crucial for a successful delivery. The role of Project Manager is as important as ever for the success of any initiative defined by scope, time, and budget - otherwise a project. Agile may or may not be the best delivery approach, but if it is, how is an Agile project different ? This webinar is trying to answer this question using real life examples from IT and Business projects.

by Kimberly Johnson, Brian Cohn, Gina Lund, Gary Jing
December 18, 2018 | 59:22 | Views: 4,269 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.25 / 5

Terminology sections or documents are critical resources for implementing a standard. However, users tend to take them for granted as just being part of the standard. But did you know: • In what situation a word or phrase is selected to be defined as a term in the terminology document or section? • What science is behind the definition of a term? • How to find definitions of a term in various standards for free? • How to relate the meaning of a term to the meaning in common dictionaries? • The word or phrase will be not be adopted as a term if the intended meaning of the word or phrase is found in a dictionary? • If not, you are not alone. New terms are not adopted easily in standards. It's a profound process - dull to some - yet largely unknown to people.
