We are in very real danger of taking PMOs for granted. This means not only assuming that they are necessary, but assuming we know what they are for and what they are created to do.

Yet PMOs are often challenged to prove their relevance and struggle for sustainability.

  • What is the value of the PMO?
  • How do you demonstrate the value of yours?

Join Mark Mullaly (LinkedIn profile) author of Researching the Value of Project Management in this informative presentation.

We’re all in a race to innovate, but far too often, data is the bottleneck that keeps our application and project teams from delivering value at the pace we need. Data is expensive to manage, it’s vulnerable to theft and exploitation, and it’s extremely difficult to move.

According to a recent TechWell survey, nearly two-thirds of respondents said it takes too long to access test data. With a proper test data management (TDM) strategy, you can remove common constraints while maintaining a high level of quality.

Join Brett Stevens to learn how advanced IT teams are taking a new approach to TDM to meet the needs of today’s development and testing teams in order to unleash innovation at speed.

Learn how to:

  • Hit industry benchmarks for TDM in terms of speed, quality, security, and cost efficiency
  • Become an advanced TDM team in order to outperform your peers
  • Leverage TDM to boost your DevOps, automation, and cloud efforts

Presenter: Brett Stevens Product Marketing Delphix, is a member of the product marketing team, and focuses on educating clients on the benefit of leveraging data virtualization across the lifecycle of their application projects. In his previous role on the business technology consulting team, Stevens worked with clients to map their data management pain points to use cases for Delphix.

How project managers can communicate assertively to keep projects on time and under budget.

Picture this…. you are a project manager, wrapping up the weekly status meeting where you have just finished giving the pertinent details of the project and all tasks that need to be done.

The client sits back, smiles and says, “Seems like we are in good shape. You know, I bet if we slipped in this one little thing, it would make this project even better!”

“One little thing?” you think to yourself. This is the third “little thing” this month and you are feeling the panic of major scope creep.

The client is looking at you for an answer. Your emotions are taking over and you are struggling between what you would really like to say and what would be politically correct.

It’s a tough situation – What do you do?

You don’t want to be viewed as a pushover by your team or be the naysayer to your client.

For those who struggle with the challenge of what to say and how to say it, this webinar will give pointers on how you can communicate diplomatically in most situations.

This session will center on the use of stories, anecdotes and metaphors which are powerful tools that will enable you to connect to and influence stakeholders.

Unfortunately, about one out of four development programs fail. Sixty-five percent of those that survive do not achieve all their goals.

A development program or project in trouble is distinct from a program encountering typical development difficulties.

Each day its performance seems to be worse, even when team members do not think it possible. A program or project with this problem can appear to be in free fall.

Thomas (Tom) Pavelko (LinkedIn profile) spent many years at a major aerospace company leading the successful recovery of important development programs.

Tom experienced firsthand what causes programs to stop achieving performance, cost, schedule, and quality commitments.

He refined ways to evaluate these programs, reorganize them to achieve their commitments and resurrect the morale of the team. Tom strives to lead these teams to enter a high state of productivity that he refers to as being “on step”.

In this webinar Tom will pull from the concepts of his new book, Project and Program Turnaround (Best Practices and Advances in Program Management).

Walk away being able to identify the essential fundamentals to execute a program turnaround effectively.

These include:

  • Identifying the critical accomplishment that must be achieved next,
  • Assigning each program responsibility to one person,
  • Capitalizing on colocation and face-to-face communication,
  • Recruiting problem solvers,
  • Establishing team member commitments,
  • Using team accomplishments to propel high team morale
  • And more …

These are necessary to get the program team on step and successful.

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

The Sinking of the Titanic on April 14/15, 1912 offers many valuable lessons for the Project Manager, from both a popular perspective and from a more serious academic perspective.

RMS Titanic was a passenger liner that struck an iceberg on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England, to New York City, and sank on 15 April 1912. She struck the iceberg four days into the crossing, at 23:40 on 14 April 1912, and sank at 2:20 the following morning, resulting in the deaths of 1,517 people in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history.
-Wikipedia

In this webinar Luis Alberto Caceres Villota (LinkedIn profile) author of Murphy On Projects: Causas de falhas nos projetos e como preveni-las (Portuguese Edition) explores the RMS Titanic as a project to show some common causes of failure in projects.

  • Why do skilled project managers does not follow common successful methodologies?
  • Why do they sometimes neglect risk/quality/scope management?

Luis will explore the 5 sins of the project managers. These the five attitudes have been identified in recent research as key failure factors in project management.

These 5 Sins Are:

  1. Arrogance,
  2. Ambition,
  3. Ignorance,
  4. Fraudulence and
  5. Abstinence.

See how each of these “sins”  contributed to and affected the build of the RMS Titanic project and its fated journey.
