Have You Ever Been Asked To Justify The Value Of Your Change Management Effort?

Steven Covey once said, “priority is a function of context.”

To effectively and engagingly present the value of change management, it is essential that you tell the story in context – the context of organizational value and initiative success.

This new webinar provides tips, suggestions and a tour of the new Prosci CMROI Calculator that enable you to shift the conversation and add context when telling the story of the need for change management.

Agenda:

  1. Foundation – what is the real value of change management
  2. The importance of context
    • Change management value in the context of project success
    • Change management value in the context of organizational success
  3. How you tell your story

The question shifts from “what is the value of change management?” to “what portion of project success depends on the people side of change?”

Resource availability is a key source of negative risk to projects. Even if your project has well-defined scope and validated activity effort estimates, if the resources you are provided are working on multiple projects and operational activities, predictability of schedule outcomes is poor.

This webinar will review some options for responding to this risk from both a systemic and project-focused perspective.

LESSONS LEARNED:

  1. Understand the criticality of uncertain resource availability on project outcomes.
  2. Learn which approaches for getting better knowledge of resource availability won’t work in your organization.
  3. Gain a better understanding of the pros and cons of the practices that can successfully incorporate resource availability uncertainty into project planning and tracking.

  • All project managers want to deliver their projects successfully.
  • Most of us define that success as on time, within budget and to the agreed upon scope.
  • High customer satisfaction and high team morale are also common measures of success.

But how are these criteria for success actually met?

Hard work and long hours certainly contribute to project success. But savvy project managers know that leveraging the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is the way to make sure those long hours are spent working hard on the right deliverables to stay within the constraints of schedule and budget.

The WBS defines what the project needs to produce, and what the team will do to produce it.

The WBS enables more accurate and realistic planning in defining the scope, schedule and budget, and serves as the basis for what is in versus out of scope during project execution. With a well-defined WBS, projects can be delivered more successfully.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • A two-step approach for developing a WBS
  • How to determine the right amount of detail
  • How to produce a project artifact to answer key stakeholder questions

Establishing a PMO (Project/Program/Portfolio Management Office) is considered to be a best practice approach to improving the value an organization can receive from its project investments.

Why is it then, that a study, conducted in 2005, of 750 organizations worldwide indicated that over 75% of organizations that set up a PMO shut it down within three years because it did not demonstrate any added value?

Solution Q invites you to attend a webinar where you will learn key reasons why so many PMOs fail, and gain some valuable knowledge of the critical success factors required to ensure the survival of your PMO.

Who should attend this webinar?
Managers/Directors of PMOs, Project Managers
