Duration: 1 hr webinar Credits: 1 PDU Category A – Free PDU
Presented by: Solutions Cube Group (REP 2451)

This webinar is the overview in the Project Scope  series by Solutions Cube.  Although this module is a part of the series – each module in the series can be taken individually.

On many projects, teams fail to start at the beginning.

Teams jump right into defining requirements (and sometimes solutions) before determining the boundaries for project.

Project Managers face the costly consequences of scope creep, often because they have failed to define the project boundaries. Without understanding the boundaries of the project, there is no mechanism in place to differentiate between true and perceived scope creep.

Get off the “scope creep merry-go-round” by starting your projects at the beginning by clearly defining the Project Scope.

Learn how to recognize and overcome these far too common barriers regarding project scope definition.

In the Project Scoping Course, students learn how to document the boundaries of every project by defining the elements of a clear Scope Statement.

Course participants will be able to:

  • Understand how to set the boundaries for your project
  • Understand the components of a Scope Statement
  • Understand how the Scope Statement impacts the creation of all project deliverables

When product development teams spend more time dealing with internal issues, there’s less time available for true product innovation, resulting in rework, missed market opportunities, more meetings, more staff, and bloated processes.

One of the biggest barriers in product delivery is the way business needs are connected to distributed development teams.

The more reactive or agile a development team becomes, the more of an issue it is for the business teams to keep everything in sync.

The end result is that everyone on the product team is forced to spend more time determining how requirements, user stories, regulations, epics, and tasks are all linked, turning them into glorified middlemen.

Whether your team is agile, waterfall, or hybrid, join this web seminar to learn how to define, plan, and track requirements to help eliminate bottlenecks and consistently deliver great products.

You’ll learn how to:

  1. Effectively gather and manage business needs and expectations
  2. Express and communicate ideas and concepts to other stakeholders
  3. Align business needs with agile delivery
  4. Quickly understand the impact of the change required by shifts in business priorities
  5. Focus on roadmaps and strategy, not backlogs and stories

Delivering learning to employees is only the first key step in improving performance.

Employees have to retain the gains in knowledge and skill, or the time, energy and effort that went into the program was for nothing – wasted.

Delivering learning to employees is only the first key step in improving performance. Employees have to retain the gains in knowledge and skill, or the time, energy and effort that went into the program was for nothing – wasted. T

he challenge for many organizations and professionals is that we focus so intently on employee learning, we overlook the importance whether our employees retain any of what they learn.

As it turns out, reinforcement of lessons learned is a powerful part of learning and vitally important.

The great news is that recently emerging research is helping us learn more about exactly what reinforcement methods really work, and why.

The challenge for organizations is to refocus existing tools, content and communication tools on the very targeted and specific activities that yield great results at improving employee retention.

In this session, you’ll learn about “the forgetting curve” and methods, techniques and tools (including video) that can reverse the forgetting curve and lead directly to much higher returns on investments in improved performance.
