Sponsored by: PMI Quality CoP® (REP #S019)

PMI® Quality Community of Practice: Our mission is to increase members understanding of Project Management Quality by exploring the Quality Processes as defined in the PMBOK and encouraging members to network by sharing experiences, knowledge and tools.

Project Managers, Resource Managers and other members of the Project Management Office (if there is one) do not work in a vacuum.

Even if a PMO exists and all members of it are fully certified in Project Management, the level of project quality in the entire organization will affect their ability to be effective and provide value to the company.

During this presentation, we plan to give some examples of this type of situation.  Tim & Colin will highlight how an organization can increase their OPM Maturity and allow the PMO to be more constructive to the entire organization.

They will show that Project Management Quality and Organizational Project Management Maturity go together.

Presenter: Change Management Learning Center (PROSCI)

Prosci specializes in change management processes.  With a strong developed expertise in change management processes they produce high quality informative presentations and seminars

For changes to deliver results and outcomes, structured approaches are needed for both the technical side of the change (through project management) and for the people side of the change (through change management).

The technical side ensures that solutions are designed, developed and delivered effectively. The people side ensures that the solution is embraced, adopted and used proficiently.

These two complementary disciplines share a common objective – to improve the performance of the organization by implementing a change. However, bringing these two disciplines together can sometimes be challenging.

This webinar looks at how to integrate change management and project management across five dimensions to deliver benefit realization and a unified value proposition for change


  1. Foundation
  2. Dimensions of integration
  3. People

  5. Tools
