It isn’t easy to make exact copies of even a simple product, but at least you begin that effort knowing what “done” looks like.

Development introduces a special kind of challenge – you only learn what “done” looks like at the end.

The critical path for execution becomes dependent upon the critical path for definition and vice versa.

The development path can be thought of as a part “altitude” you wish to attain and part “distance” you must travel to get there.

Randall Iliff (LinkedIn profile) will use this powerful analogy to explore why development outcomes vary so widely, why Agile methods are essential, and to help you plot the optimum launch trajectory for any given effort.

Activity Type: Education – Course or Training  1 Hour  1 PDU free
Provider:  The Corporate Education Group ( REP 1011 )

The Project Management Institute (PMI) has published the 6th edition of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) and a companion guide dedicated to agile practices.

The impetus?

According to the PMI 2017 Pulse of the Profession® report, a full 71% of organizations say they are using agile approaches for their projects sometimes, often, or always. And yet, for many practitioners the adoption of agile practices often means a diminished role for the project manager.

Join Bonnie Cooper in this webinar to explore the agile infusion in the PMBOK® Guide and the companion Agile Practice Guide, as well, and the reality of trying to integrate traditional project management and incremental, adaptive development practices.

Learning goals:

  • Review of the PMBOK Guide – Sixth Edition changes and Agile Practice Guide
  • Discuss what it means to be an agile project manager
  • Discuss the reality of the integration between traditional project management and agile development practices

Presenter: Bonnie Cooper (LinkedIn profile), PMP®, Instructor and Consultant for Corporate Education Group, is a twenty-year information technology professional. In her current role as the Program Director for the Massachusetts Medical Society™(MMS) Corporate IT Program Office, Bonnie is responsible for coordinating the efforts of project teams, overseeing the implementation of project standards, managing the corporate IT strategic plan, and leading the program to re-engineer the membership platform for MMS.

Project Managers like control, but what happens when crisis strikes?

Thia session details the  dos and don’ts of managing the unexpected.

All organisations at some time face a corporate crisis -think Uber, BP etc.

If you look at how even global organisations can be caught out, you begin to realise that whilst planning and control are the key skills for project management teams, the ability to react well to completely unplanned change is now a vital skill.

In this lively webinar Stephen will address how to respond to a major crisis and will teach the vital skills of survival.

Presenter: Stephen Carver, (LinkedIn profile) is a sought after keynote speaker and one of the top lecturers at Cranfield School of Management where he lectures in project and programme management. His attitude is ‘if you haven’t done it – you shouldn’t be teaching it!’ Stephen has a reputation of taking complex management concepts and being able to distill them down into highly informative and fun lectures. He still undertakes business management assignments for many global organisations and uses his unique story-telling style to help others succeed.

Projects are the mechanism to realize business strategy, create competitive advantage and achieve organizational transformation.

Important stuff, but most often, projects are being done in addition to ongoing business operations with constrained resources.

Therefore success is dependent on getting the right resources, spending your budget wisely, and keeping people focused and motivated to execute.

Warning signs that a project is headed to failure include missed deadlines, confusion, conflict and churning. All this can contribute to project manager and team burnout.

Effective project managers look for these early warning signs of failure and burnout so they can take corrective actions, but more importantly, they proactively work to avoid them.

In this webinar you will learn tips and techniques to:

  • Cultivate a healthy environment for your project, your team, and yourself
  • Create best practices you can rely on to drive the project forward
  • Leverage relationships to support and motivate

The first ever international standard on knowledge management has been released as a draft. What does it mean for PPM professionals?

Knowledge management (KM) is a discipline concerned with how organisations create and use knowledge.

In practice it is often poorly understood and confused with information management – a missed opportunity!

In recognition of this, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has appointed a working group of leading international KM experts and is developing the first ever international standard on KM.

The purpose of the standard, which has been published as a draft for comments, is to help organisations understand what KM is and how to approach it. The standard represents current good practice in KM.

Join this webinar to find out what the international KM experts have to say about KM and how to do it.

Judy Payne, Knowledge SIG Co-chair and member of the ISO working group that has drafted the standard, will introduce and cover the following points:

  • What is the status of the standard?
  • Why is the standard needed?
  • What are the key messages in the standard?
  • Why are the messages in the standard different from the KM entry in the APM BoK?
  • What does the standard mean for PPM professionals?

The standard is protected by copyright, so we can’t share its detailed content with you in the webinar. To get the most out of the webinar, please take a look at the standard beforehand:

  1. Go to the BSI Standards Development website
  2. Register
  3. Search for ISO 30401
  4. Click on the red reference link (ISO 30401)
  5. Click on Read draft and comment

There is no charge for registering on the website or for reading the draft standard.

NOTE: This webinar is suitable for professionals with all levels of experience.
