We’ve all heard that setting priorities in our personal lives is key to achieving our goals.

Some of us hire personal coaches to get our lives in order, but when it comes to what we do within the office, all that planning goes out the window.

Organizations today are running at a much faster pace than ever before. We have technology glued to us at all times so that we can quickly respond to things.

But should we really?

This month we will talk about the benefits of prioritizing our days both at home and at work. We understand that you don’t always have control over the priorities that may be set for you in the office, but we will discuss some strategies and approaches to gaining clarity of purpose when your supervisor says something is urgent or if you are feeling like you have too many projects on your plate.

In the last session, we asked the attendees to submit relevant scenarios to discuss with our panel of experts. During our practice session, Diane & Brenda will share these experiences and strategies to help you get your time in control.

This webinar describes systems thinking concepts and methods, why it is important and how it can be beneficially applied to portfolio, programme & project management. 

Traditional top-down ‘divide-and-conquer’ approaches are often unsuccessful for dynamically complex problems containing non-linear component, inter-dependencies or for complex projects, where there is a diversity of views amongst stakeholders as to what the objectives should be because:

  • It is not clear where the ‘Top’ is.
  • It is not clear how the problem should be ‘divided’.

Systems thinking is a discipline for seeing wholes and enables these types of problems to be addressed to identify where the key leverage points are. Systems thinking does not necessarily replace traditional top-down thinking, but can complement it by simplifying complex problems and making them easier to understand.

The webinar will describe what systems thinking is, why it is important and how it can be applied to portfolio, programme and project management to:

  • Support identification and definition of the right portfolio, programme and/or project.
  • Support implementing the portfolio, programme and/or project right.
  • Maximise Outcomes/ Outputs and minimise unintended consequences.

Every project needs an appropriate framework in place to manage its performance effectively.

This webinar discusses the key challenges and pitfalls many portfolios, programmes and projects (P3) face and how to overcome them.

Iain Morton and David Llewellyn have both been working with a major government organisation to implement a clear performance management framework across a multi-billion pound portfolio.

They are consistently seeing projects and programmes input burdensome performance drumbeats that don’t actually consider the question of, is this adding value and helping the project manager make more informed decisions?

In this webinar Ian & David will use their experience to discuss a number of key topics that must be considered when implementing an effective performance management framework, such as:

  • Is the P3 hierarchy reviewing the right data?
    • Just because the data is available idoes not mean that you need to capture it and flow it through the performance drumbeat.
  • In a world where projects and programmes strive to review real time data in their performance drumbeat, do they actually allow themselves the time to analyse the data and turn it into management information that can be utilised further?
  • Do you know what should be on your performance dashboard?
    • The level of detail required varies significantly throughout the P3 hierarchy but many projects and programmesoften fail to recognise this.

Presenters:
