Online Webinar – Recorded March 21st 2017
Activity Type: Education – Online or Digital Media  1 PDU – Free
Provider: Association for Project Management – APM

Stakeholder Engagement helps us understand what people involved with a project want, and how to engage them to help achieve project success. For both new and experienced project managers, a big challenge is where to go for guidance on the topic.

The Stakeholder Engagement Focus Group, part of the APM People SIG , has started to collate stakeholder engagement resources on the APM Website.

This webinar provides an overview of the information and tools currently available and how you can help add to and improve this facility.

There are many reasons why projects may struggle to meet their goals but a lack of effective stakeholder engagement is widely acknowledged to be one of the main issues.

The Stakeholder Engagement Focus Group (SEFG), now part of the APM People SIG, was established to encourage practitioners to make stakeholder engagement a higher priority.

The first project for the SEFG was to start collating stakeholder engagement resources.

The aim is to support project professionals by sharing case studies, creating an introduction to the key principles of stakeholder engagement, and pointing to relevant and useful reference materials.

These APM Stakeholder Resources are now available on the APM website and .accessible to anyone!

In this webinar Fran and Ian will introduce the Stakeholder Engagement Focus Group, provide an update on the SEFG’s progress to date and the materials available on the APM site, and plans for improving and building on these resources.

Is Business Analysis the Cornerstone of Successful Projects?

A major source of project failure is incomplete, inaccurate, and misunderstood requirements.

In a nutshell, if you don’t identify the “right” requirements for a project, problems will be magnified at every other step of the process.

The bottom line is that nailing down requirements for your initiatives is a high-stakes activity, even more so during a recession where every penny counts.

Faced with conflicting requests from customers, users, partners, competitors, and regulators; the role of the business analyst to define and prioritize requirements, foresee related impacts, and create actionable plans is critical.

In this Webcast, you’ll find out about the due diligence needed to keep projects on track using the tools of business analysis.

Whether you’re an experienced project manager or are just starting out, this program will help fine tune your understanding the basics of requirements management.

Learn:

  • Leading causes of project failure and what you can do to minimize the risks
  • How business analysis is the key to trimming project costs
  • Ways to turn unrealistic expectations into realistic features
  • Using BABOK to improve your requirements development
  • How business analysis differs from project management
  • And much more.

Bob is a highly qualified project manager. He has a proven history of successful projects, has several certifications, won many awards and is highly admired in his company.

But in everyday life he is always tangled with small things, missing meetings, missing e-mails, always busy instead of productive.  Promised to start a diet and exercise but he is always procrastinating. The daily incidents make him lose focus.

  • Does it make sense, and as a skilled project manager, to fail to plan his own agenda?
  • Does it make sense not being able to manage priorities?
  • Is he is not supposed to be a “master guru ninja jedi” on these subjects?

In this webinar Luis Alberto Caceres Villota (LinkedIn profile) author of Murphy On Projects: Causas de falhas nos projetos e como preveni-las (Portuguese Edition) brings you coaching concepts that will help to apply these concepts on your life to boost your personal efficiency, helping to align your personal goals, priorities, activities and more.

These are important concepts for any professional who wants to improve results, not only in the professional life but in the personal life.
