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.

This is the closing Q&A webinar for March 2017 Book Club on How to Manage Complex Programs: High-Impact Techniques for Handling Project Workflow, Deliverables, and Teams by Tom Kendrick

About the Book:

  • Projects require managers.
  • Programs require maestros.

Program manager — it’s one of the most challenging jobs you can have. Overseeing and coordinating multiple project teams and thousands of activities may seem a Herculean task, but it’s easier with the right tools in hand.

Successful program management begins with a good command of project management processes, but these are never sufficient.

Once a program exceeds a certain scale, project processes become unwieldy.

To see a program successfully through to completion, you must break the work down into simpler, smaller pieces and organize it into interdependent tasks.

Complete with diagrams, graphs, and real-life examples, How to Manage Complex Programs explains the ins and outs of program management and provides concrete and effective techniques for structuring deliverables, workflow, and staffing.

Learn to:

  • Decompose complex deliverables into manageable chunks
  • Develop coherent plans for component projects
  • Handle cross-project dependencies
  • Organize program staff and project leaders into a high-performing team
  • And more

Yes, program management is challenging. But with these proven strategies, it can also be highly rewarding–for you and for your organization.

Presenter: Tom Kendrick, PMP (LinkedIn profile), is Program Director for the University of California Berkeley Extension Project Management curriculum. He is author of Identifying and Managing Project Risk: Essential Tools for Failure-Proofing Your Project, The Project Management Tool Kit: 100 Tips and Techniques for Getting the Job Done Right, and 101 Project Management Problems and How to Solve Them: Practical Advice for Handling Real-World Project Challenges.He regularly conducts classes and presentations on program, project, and risk management for conferences, associations, and universities. He also spent over 20 years with Hewlett Packard in its Project Management Initiative and has almost 40 years of worldwide PM experience, including work for Visa, DuPont, General Electric, and as an independent consultant.

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.

Setting Your Program Up for Success

The skills needed for program management can differ significantly from those needed for project management.

Program management is about maximizing the benefits realized with constrained resources in a changing environment; project management is focused on the efficient creation of a defined deliverable.

In this session will address some of the differences between the skillsets, and will identify three of the most essential, while successfully balancing the four inter-related management skills needed for successful program management: project, program, portfolio, and operations.

In this webcast, you will discover the tools to initiate a program successfully in a manner that will enable benefits establishment, realization management, and analysis prior to and during execution.

Lisa Wolf will show you how to set realistic objectives and performance measures. The three key tools for program success we will discuss in this webcast are:

Learn:

  • Creating a program roadmap
  • Identifying what is needed for organizational strategy and program alignment
  • Creating an environmental assessment

These skills are only three key tools for program success, to be used within an entire program lifecycle, but can serve as a foundation for success.

The use of these tools will vary based on the type and complexity of the program; effective and strategic program management can often depend on how well these foundational elements are executed to ensure appropriate program definition, benefits delivery, and closure.

We encourage you to register even if you are unable to attend live; you’ll receive replay information following the event.
