This is the “Closing Q&A Webinar” for the February Book Club on Project and Program Turnaround (Best Practices and Advances in Program Management) by Thomas (Tom) Pavelko (LinkedIn profile)

About the Book:

The U.S. economy thrives on the development of new products, new systems, and new processes. Usually, these advances start as a flash of inspiration by highly creative individuals. It is complex and difficult to go from initial inspiration to a final product, process, or system.

So .. It is not surprising that approximately one out of every four development programs fails.

A development program or project in trouble is distinct from a program encountering typical development difficulties. Such a program or project can appear to be in free fall.

This book identifies the essential fundamentals for executing a program or project turnaround effectively. These fundamentals include:

  • Clearly identifying the next critical accomplishment needed for success
  • Assigning responsibility for each program task to one person
  • Capitalizing on colocation and face-to-face communication
  • Recruiting problem solvers
  • Wining commitment from team members
  • Using team accomplishments to propel high team morale

The guidance provided in this book is applicable to all program or project genres, including manufacturing, nonprofit work, education, medicine, investment management, and municipal management.

Software has become a great part of both providing product functionality and assisting with managing product development. A special chapter devoted to software development dispels common misconceptions and provides guidance for turning around this special type of project or program.

This book is a highly valuable source of insight for a wide range of readers, including management professionals, business students, and executive managers. Every member of a product or project development team will find its recommendations to be of high value.

Activity Type: Education – Course or Training  1 Hour  1 PDU free
Provider: O’Reilly

Portfolio mapping requires taking an end-to-end view of the life-cycle of initiatives in your organization, but using the same strategy, practices, and processes across the entire portfolio will result in negative outcomes and results.

Barry O’Reilly explores how the world’s largest organizations develop better strategies, information gathering, and decision making across their portfolios to drive improved business results and customer satisfaction.

Drawing on real-world examples, Barry traces successful strategies across four main domains, explaining why thriving companies:

  • Explore early-stage initiatives with high degrees of uncertainty that are bets for the future.
  • Exploit initiatives that have achieved product-market fit and that the organization wants to grow and scale.
  • Sustain initiatives that have become repeatable and scalable business models, products, or services that drive the majority of revenue for the organization.
  • Retire initiatives that are long lived or no longer beneficial (or even limiting) to the organization’s future success or strategy. Initiatives that do not achieve desired outcomes in any domain should be killed and their investment transferred to other initiatives.

By the end of this webcast, you’ll understand why and how high-performance organizations focus on building capability to continuously move initiatives through the model from Explore to Retire.

Presenter: Barry O’Reilly  (LinkedIn profile@BarryOReilly) is a frequent keynote speaker, writer and blogger on industry topics related to innovation, organizational leadership and strategy. Barry is Founder and CEO of ExecCamp (ExecCamp Linkedn profile, @ExecCamp) the entrepreneurial experience for executives, and Antennae, it’s mission to help technology led businesses innovate at scale. Barry is also co author of the bestseller Lean Enterprise: How High Performance  Organizations Innovate at Scale.  Barry uses a lot of Post-Its 🙂

  • Are you comfortable with the level of insight you are able to provide on your company’s project portfolio?
  • Are you able to have the right conversations with your senior management rather than worrying about the quality of the data presented?
  • Do you sometimes struggle to ensure that you meet the portfolio reporting needs of a disparate set of stakeholders?

Analytics packages are becoming more and more popular as a way of manipulating, interpreting and presenting portfolio information.

These can be applied over any Portfolio Project Management (PPM) system and are designed to be easily configurable by upskilling existing internal resources.

The tricky part, as with most projects, is often ensuring you have defined clear outcomes and follow a structured approach to implement change and realise the benefits.

This webinar presents SABMiller’s global portfolio management function as a case study, with support from their partner consultancy North Highland, to demonstrate their original objectives, methodology, results and lessons learnt in moving from traditional spreadsheet type reporting to more value adding portfolio management analytics.

This is not intended to be a recommendation for any particular analytics package, but is intended  to help portfolio managers learn more about how analytics can enhance their existing portfolio management reporting capability.

Presenters:

Paul Morgan (LinkedIn profile) Global Head of Demand & Portfolio Management for the IT function SABMiller, has 10+ years’ experience in the project and portfolio management discipline, specialising in multi-country IT portfolio management.  Paul ran successful projects within the transport industry, then moved to SABMiller.
