Managing a Business Process Performance Project requires all the standard project management skills, including planning, budgeting and managing a project.

However, there are several characteristics of a Business Process Performance Project that require a unique set of skills.

Some of the characteristics include:

  • Defining the nature of the process change that will be required;
  • Understanding the phases for a process change project;
  • Estimating costs and resources needed for various projects;
  • Identifying people with the right skills for the intervention you intend to make;
  • Communicating with stakeholders about a process project; and
  • Working with others to deliver the redesigned process.

This webinar will discuss the unique characteristics of a Business Process Performance Project and review some of the tools and techniques that project managers can use to ensure that a process change project is efficient and effective.

Agile is more than a set of development practices with catchy names. It involves new ways of functioning as a team. That is why many Agilists talk about Agile Transformation rather than Agile Adoption.

This webinar explores these new ways of functioning through the lens of the PACT© model, in which Participation, Accountability, Communication and Transparency form a bedrock of organizational trust.

Please join Steve Harper (LinkedIn profile) a consulting project manager with over 20 years of IT experience. While he grew up in the era of Waterfall, four years ago he fell in love with Agile/Scrum and has run projects using those methods ever since.

The WebinEYE series demonstrates best practices in oil & gas project management through application. The webinars are presented in an engaging and inspiring storytelling style by industry experts.

Successful Management & Delivery Of Projects Depends On People!

People and people’s behaviours are critical for project success. Without appropriate and correct attitudes and behaviours by the people, projects regularly fail.

Project delivery requires the collaboration and interaction of many parties including client, contractors, and supply chain partners.

The core values needed to drive appropriate behaviours on projects are consistent and recognisable.

Organisations and individuals that deliver projects need to demonstrate credibility, reliability and integrity. These behaviours provide the foundation for trusting relationships.

Project stakeholders and project team need to demonstrate alignment to project objectives.

The WebEYE Webinar Series

The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) team consists of Senior Project Practitioners from various Oil & Gas Operators, Contractors, Industry Bodies and wider supply chain organisations who come together to work towards a single objective which is to “influence the skills development initiatives that address current project management issues and competency development across the Offshore EC Industry”.

Key objectives of the WebinEYE Series are to:

  • Enhance ‘experiential and contextual’ development of PM disciplines rather than just ‘academic’ development.
  • Promote a knowledge sharing culture within the community based around good practice, involving all sectors in the Oil & Gas Industry and supply chain organisations.
  • Promote development of non-technical competence, specifically around values and behaviours.
  • Strengthen cross sector support of the PM good practice initiative by Industry Bodies and Associations.

  • Are you a Business Analyst trying to find your role in an Agile project?
  • Are you looking for ways to ramp up your Agile team’s productivity?

There are a lot of misconceptions about Business Analysis in an Agile development environment, and sometimes Business Analysts find it hard to adapt to the short iterations, just-in-time planning and minimalist documentation that characterizes Agile development.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Dispel common myths about Agile, including the belief that Business Analysts aren’t welcome in Agile
  2. Explain why every development team needs excellent business analysis to be successful
  3. Guide analysts in how to deliver the most value in Agile settings

Note:  A recorded version of this session is available.

To an untrained eye, an Agile Team Room can look like chaos, however, to the trained eye, an Agile Team Room is a integrated set of Information Radiators that transparently communicate project details, insulate the team from distractions, and support an environment for continuous collaboration.

If you attended the web seminar, “Options for Illustrating & Documenting the Five Levels of Planning,” then you got exposure to the different types of information radiators that can be used to communicate details about the scope of work an Agile Team has taken on.

While Leslie Morse (LinkedIn profile) will not cover the details of any specific information radiator during this one-hour seminar, she will reference many types of information radiators and walk through various team room layouts that are conducive for building high performing Agile Teams.

If you choose to register and attend this session you’ll leave with a list of Team Room attributes that are classified into must-haves, satisfiers, & delighters as well as understand the pros and cons of an Agile Team Room approach.
