  • Risk Management and Judgement under Uncertainty

    Stafford, VA 22554

    There is no such thing as perfect knowledge. Risk – either negative or positive – is a function of uncertainty about the project and its environment. Risk Management is the disciplined approach to managing uncertainty by encouraging proactive thinking about project, program, and portfolio outcomes. Risk Management saves time, money, and human resources because it forces project teams to consider the “what ifs” that could happen to the project, and in doing so, teams develop strategies for handling threats and opportunities before they become issues.

  • Fostering Innovation in Projects

    -

    About the Presentation

    Innovation is not always associated with project management but projects are one time opportunities and unique endeavors. Sometimes they may be the only time for organizations to innovate as the opportunities may simply not exist after the project. This presentation is based on several case studies in innovation from the First Industrial Revolution primarily the Transcontinental Railroad but also the Ironbridge, and Stockton Darlington Railway. These case studies have rarely been associated with innovation (and projects) and this is what makes this presentation so unique. Through these case studies the presentation highlights the importance of innovation and why it needs to be considered in projects.

  • Best Practices in Managing Stakeholder Expectations

    -

    About the Program

    Stakeholder Management is one of the most essential aspects of project management, regardless of the size or complexity of the project. However, stakeholder management is often overlooked, or it is relegated to an afterthought or secondary level of importance in the project management process.

    This PMI session will offer participants a sobering perspective on the various reasons why stakeholder management is often not viewed with the necessary level of seriousness when project managers are initiating or planning a project. The presenter will provide practical guidance and will offer best practice recommendations regarding the key steps to appropriately identifying and managing project stakeholders and their expectations in order to achieve best project closure results.
