About the Book:

Integrating Program Management and Systems Engineering: Methods, Tools, and Organizational Systems for Improving Performance  shows how organizations can become more effective, more efficient, and more responsive, and enjoy better performance outcomes.

The discussion begins with an overview of key concepts, and details the challenges faced by System Engineering and Program Management practitioners every day.

The practical framework that follows describes how the roles can be integrated successfully to streamline project workflow, with a catalog of tools for assessing and deploying best practices.

Case studies detail how real-world companies have successfully implemented the framework to improve cost, schedule, and technical performance, and coverage of risk management throughout helps you ensure the success of your organization’s own integration strategy.

Available course outlines and PowerPoint slides bring this book directly into the academic or corporate classroom, and the discussion’s practical emphasis provides a direct path to implementation.

The integration of management and technical work paves the way for smoother projects and more positive outcomes.

This book describes the integrated goal, and provides a clear framework for successful transition.

  • Overcome challenges and improve cost, schedule, and technical performance
  • Assess current capabilities and build to the level your organization needs
  • Manage risk throughout all stages of integration and performance improvement
  • Deploy best practices for teams and systems using the most effective tools

Complex engineering systems are prone to budget slips, scheduling errors, and a variety of challenges that affect the final outcome.

These challenges are a sign of failure on the part of both management and technical, but can be overcome by integrating the roles into a cohesive unit focused on delivering a high-value product. Integrating Program Management with Systems Engineering provides a practical route to better performance for your organization as a whole.

Professionals working in the field of project management are often exposed to stressful situations and frustrations caused by a wide variety of challenges ranging from unrealistic expectations, stakeholder resistance, or constantly changing priorities.

The reactions to these challenges depends greatly on the individual, their experience, and capabilities.

One thing that is certain is professionals could employ different techniques in dealing with organizational or team stressors, some positive, and others negative.

Unfortunately, even the most seasoned professionals are sometimes susceptible to committing a major mistake or taking an action that could ultimately be detrimental to the organization.

Given that all projects are about relationships, one of the most common causes of mistakes is due to misalignment of relationships.

As project, program, and portfolio managers react to these misalignments either fix them or to deal with frustration, there is a major risk that the action could ultimately result in burning bridges in terms of relationships with stakeholders, sponsors, customers, or organization.

Burning bridges results in irreparable damage to relationships and often in hind sight may not be necessary.

In this webinar  Philip Diab (LinkedIn profile) explores the concept of burning bridges through a series of scenarios based on fictionalized accounts and stories.

The session will draw upon lessons learned from real life situations to share tips on how professionals can guard against unnecessary mistakes leading to burned bridges.

Philip will also discuss potential techniques and actions to be used in avoiding some common mistakes.

When initiating a high profile project there is a very good chance that you will start on the back foot, already one week behind a schedule that still needs to be agreed.

Or you may find yourself in a crisis that needs to be resolved at all cost.

Either way there are some very specific things that you, as the project manager, should and should not do in your attempts to recover.

We use a very simple analogy to illustrate why you would not want to reach for the low hanging fruit immediately.

During this webinar Anton Oosthuizen (LinkedIn profile) will relate the analogy to real-world scenarios and illustrate how the simple concept of Acknowledge It to Manage

It can be applied to recover from pending disasters, making it easy for the attendee to relate and apply in their own environment.
