What Process Mistakes Are You Making?

When you desperately need a project process, the biggest mistake an organization can make is to buy a tool prior to defining, testing, and optimizing your project processes.

The second biggest mistake is to have your PMO attempt to implement vague executive direction without that direction going right to business unit managers.

In this webinar, Darrel Raynor  addresses one of two workable strategies to “Defining & Implementing a Simple Project Process” and cover the 5 most important steps for a successful “grassroots” approach.

This webinar is based on the book:
The Project Manager’s Little Book of Cheats

There is no such thing as cheating in project management,
But if there were it would be this book!

The book  is in question / answer format with 11 chapters covering 65 questions, and includes quick steps, relevant tips, fun stories, and applicable advice to solving common problems and questions focused around the work of a project manager.

Some of the questions include:

  • #12 I need to convince someone of my idea. How do I sell an idea?
  • #16 Since most of my work communication is through email, how can I make my email communication more effective?
  • #22 How can I convince those who are change resistant?
  • #39 Assumptions introduce a lot of risk. What are some common assumptions to watch out for?
  • #41 How can I tell if a project is getting off track before it’s too late?
  • #47 What process could I use to evaluate project requests to determine if they should be approved or not?
  • #51 How can I make my team meetings more productive?
  • #58 My project tracking needs have grown beyond Microsoft Excel. What are some good project management tools?

When you have a question or problem do you have time to stop what you’re doing and read a three hundred page book on a single topic?

Wouldn’t it be great if you could open a book and find a one to two page answer that you can apply immediately, in the moment when you need it?

This Is That Book!

This is a  book that will sit on or in your desk and be frequently opened when questions or problems arise. Write on the pages, make your own notes, and highlight what works for you.

Join the author,  and host, Beth Spriggs, PMP, (LinkedIn profile) &  Tolitha Lewis (LinkedIn profile) for a live Q&A session.

The Enabling Change SIG’s mission is to ‘improve the change capability of organisations, teams and individuals. CMI’s competency framework could be one tool to support this.

In this webinar Melanie Franklin enables viewers to find out about the CMI’s competency framework, and assess if and how this is something that could help them, their teams and their organisations develop their change capability.

She does this through a combination of presentations and a couple of polls during the webinar. Melanie will also allow some time for Q&A.

N.B. The SIG is ‘method neutral’, so that we invite speakers from a range of external change-related organisations to speak at our events.

The webinar also provides a quick update on the SIG’s work in developing the resources available to members, including its plans for an introductory publication on managing change.

Many Projects Generate Transformations

A new system will change processes, concepts and behaviors. Merging companies and corporate restructurations implies deep changes. And this is followed by common pathology in projects: the resistance.

Do you think resistant people are an obstacle in your projects?

If the project manager wants to implement lasting changes, this webinar will help to understand these processes and offer a glance over formal tools and methodologies to manage all the complexity involved.
