Requirements Facilitation Workshop

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…

Successful project delivery is critical. High performing projects successfully deliver power efficient day-to-day operations and drive long term, strategic growth. High performing environments deliver needed solutions that drive competitive advantage.

However, even the most mature enterprise can fail to execute high performing projects, impacting operations, strategy and long-term success, particularly in environments that demand innovation.

This presentation is focused on the underlying principles at work within high performing projects and a revolutionary new way to understand and utilize the power of communication to ensure long-term success and the delivery of innovation.

Presenter: Mark Phillips (LinkedIn profile) is an accomplished CEO and the author of Reinventing Communication: How to Design, Lead and Manage High Performing Projects, a book about project management, system design and complexity.  Mark has written articles for the APM Community Blog including Having no plan beats a bad plan and Be a better leader by picking the metrics.

The complaints are familiar: Traditional means of managing organizational knowledge – in reports, status meetings, and standard operating procedures – just don’t work very well.

We amass piles of documentation yet can’t find what we need when we need it, we find out too late that a task was already accomplished, better, by someone in another organizational silo, we spend hours never finding the information we’re looking for.

“Working out loud” (also known as “narrating work” or “showing work”) is an increasingly-easy way of overcoming a lot of these problems.

L & D is uniquely positioned to help in the effort, supporting workers with new tools and techniques for sharing tacit knowledge, building bridges between talent pools, sharpening communication, and helping organizations build better maps of work and activities.

This session explores some approaches to showing work — and how L&D can help.

Business Architecture: Beyond Theory


Live Webinar – July 30th, 2014 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm  EDT
Offered by IAG Consulting (REP 2858)
Duration 1 hour 1 PDU or  1 CDU 1 Category A – Free PDU

Enterprise Business Architecture is quickly evolving into a mainstream business capability.

Some would argue that it is already there particularly when 50% of the world’s top performing organizations have embraced business architecture as a strategic differentiator ranging from Government, Telco’s, Manufacturing and Financial Institutions.

However there continues to be a large population of change executives, managers and resources who regard Business Architecture as a theoretical practice.

Strategic change initiatives proliferate in business today. The speed and rate of change demands we maintain holistic oversight of all the moving parts to ensure realization of target operating models and designs.

Historically only a few strategic programs would be at play. In the last decade this number has grown to include on-shoring/off-shoring, centralization, spans of control, business transformation, vendor outsourcing, modernization, mergers/acquisitions, channel optimization, client segmentation, journeys and experience.

To facilitate strategic alignment and execution of these initiatives, firms are investing in business architecture.

Beyond Theory will focus on what are the market and internal forces at work which have been driving and will continue to drive organizations to use the models to better understand business impact, scope, execution and benefits realization.

The discussion will address the deployment and adoption challenges and look at industry standards and Blueprinting for strategic opportunities. It will provide a foundational knowledge of the business architecture framework and model types to crystalize scope, identify stakeholders, manage risk and how early analysis, through the lens of the business architecture, will influence estimating, resourcing, time, cost and quality.

Business Architecture is the link between strategy and execution.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Provide clear, rational reasons to do business Architecture.
  2. Present a foundational set of Business Architecture Models, views and uses to mitigate project and analysis risk, drive the value proposition
  3. Recommend a staged Execution Model

Multilateral and international development organizations have been heavily criticized by governments and donors for not realizing expectations due to lack of accountability leading to corrupt practices, waste of resources, bureaucracy and poor service delivery.

This trend has continued to plague development in the third world for decades, according to evaluations conducted on previous projects and programmes.

Many of the existing programming and monitoring tools used by development organizations do not have built-in mechanisms for highlighting shortcomings, discrepancies and financial irregularities and hence cannot effectively expose mismanagement or corrupt practices.

Although Earned Value Management (EVM) has been utilized mainly as a performance measurement tool in the corporate world, it may possibly be employed in development programmes as a tool for accountability and highlighting mismanagement of financial resources.

The first challenge will be to identify and establish the appropriate EVM tools that can be employed within the context of development programmes bearing in mind that development results and outcomes are not expressed as benefits in financial terms.

Suffyan will then explore a couple of scenarios whereby he will demonstrate how to apply EVM in monitoring and controlling development projects to ensure better accountability of project team members while also ensuring funds are not misused.

It is important to recognize that EVM alone will not be sufficient to resolve financial mismanagement or wipe out corruption.

It must be part of a broader framework that includes various programming, monitoring and auditing techniques that collectively strengthen accountability, enforce regulations and develop business processes that will reduce or greatly minimize illicit financial practices in development projects.

Presenter: Suffyan Bashir MBA PMP is a specialist in strategic planning, project and programme management with several years of experience working for international organizations and private sector institutions in various capacities. He has worked extensively with PRINCE2 and is well versed in Agile methodologies.
