Understanding the real scope of any project is vital to controlling the project.

As a project manager or business analyst, it is key to first document the initial scope of the project and then direct, monitor and control the scope through Requirements Management techniques.

Learning these techniques provide the ability to more easily control the quality issues, costs, time and risks associated with on-going scope creep associated with requirements changes.

In this seminar you will:

  • Review the role of a facilitator in running a Requirements Workshop.
  • Learn the phases of a workshop and building the “Heart” of a workshop’s agenda.
  • Review useful facilitation techniques along with failures and critical success factors.
  • And more…

Teamability®:
The Ability To Connect With Others
To Form A Productive Team

Individual strengths can lead to a personal triumph,
But a team is greater than the sum of its parts.

Rich Karlgaard, Publisher of Forbes Magazine, recently wrote an article entitled “Teams Matter. Talent is Not Enough.”

In essence, it is a challenge for executives to find and exploit the “magic” of team synergy.

The metrics of teaming now exist!  Even the most extraordinary individual effort is no substitute for great teamwork. Teaming metrics are key to improving selection, increasing engagement, and vastly reducing new-hire turnover, all with measurable business value.

With TGI Teamability:
PMs will be able to create extremely strong teams.

In this introduction you will learn:

  • A completely new technology will help you understand why talented, experienced people do not always “team” well with others.
  • How to reduce the costs and risks associated with errors in hiring and promoting,
    • Metrics and methods that measure and predict “teaming” behaviors.
    • How to effectively analyze and solve team performance problems.
  • How to deliver significant business value by matching people to the functional mission of their team
    • The ‘who fits where’ and the ‘why’ of winning teams
    • Behaviors that impact quality of team interaction and ‘fit’ to job responsibilities
  • How it possible to reliably select high quality team players, and to match their job responsibilities to the way they envision themselves serving their team (their “Role”).

This is a MUST TAKE opportunity to help you understand the strengths of your team members placing them in the roles that will make your projects even more successful!
