  • Leadership in the Agile Age

    -

    About the Program

    The rise of Agile is revolutionizing product development and is forcing organizations to change their view of management. Organizations are moving away from a command and control approach to management toward self-organizing, self-managing development teams. Decision making authority has moved down to where the information is, thus increasing decision speed and quality. This trend has resulted in a myth that managers aren’t needed in Agile organizations. Nothing could be farther from the truth!

  • Managing Stakeholders with Competing Priorities

    -

    About the Program

    When managing a project within your own organization, or a client’s, a project manager may encounter stakeholders with priorities that do not align. For instance, one stakeholder may view a project as a necessary investment, while another may view the project as a waste of time and money. If those priorities are competing, this can have a negative effect on the project’s outcome by causing delays, excessive frustration, or even project failure.

    This presentation will review case studies from Afghanistan, teaching 8th graders and private sector clients to discuss techniques that will assess the stakeholder’s motivations and goals, and engage the stakeholder in a way that helps gain buy-in and minimizes the negative effect on the project and helps complete the project on time, within budget, and within scope.

  • Offer Management

    -

    About the Program

    There is a new-breed of Product and Marketing practice called “Offer Management”. Offer Management is 22 years of product and marketing experience and consolidated best practices brought up-to-date to work effectively in the B2B, B2C, cloud and web worlds today.

    This presentation will explain why it is important to replace traditional product and marketing practices with an Offer Management practice. The new non-tech buyers that want business solutions and outcomes, not products and technology, drive the need to change.

    Because an offer is what is bought and consumed by customers, it is critical to align the entire company on the offers. If development builds and sales sells, then Offer Management is all things in between. Offer Management will drive company alignment and focus on customer outcomes.

  • 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.

  • Identifying and Rating Project Stakeholders

    -

    About the Program

    One of the high priority tasks during Project Initiation is making sure all relevant stakeholders have been identified. Failure to do so can negatively impact a Project Manager’s ability to define the scope, select the effective strategies, and accurately estimate the project. As we all know, new stakeholders making their presence known late in Project Execution phase can cause significant re-work for the Project Manager and project team. In this session, we will review strategies to identify all our project stakeholders and to choose appropriate characteristics to rate or classify the project stakeholders as “major”, “medium”, or “minor”. These stakeholder ratings provide input into the Communications Management Plan to ensure our desired level of stakeholder engagement throughout the project.

Also, initial estimates of time and cost, and thoughts on what product best meets the business need should be defined. • Identify Stakeholders carefully and build the Stakeholder Register • Carefully start progressively elaborating beyond the Charter, and create the Project Management Plan.

  • Turning Managers into Leaders

    -

    About the Program

    Program/Project Managers manage project tasks and activities which must be performed by people who must be led. It is not enough to simply be a Project Manager. We must become Project Leaders. Much of this transformation comes from the use of our attitude.

    Our attitudes are the most important tool in our toolbox. It costs us nothing to purchase, if we use it well it can gain us everything, and if we use it poorly it can cost us everything. How we use it is up to us. Participants will learn how to get the most from their project team by focusing on key attitude changes.

    -

    About the Program

    Taking a cue from Malcolm Gladwell’s book, What the Dog Saw, this presentation will describe a unique approach to leadership.

  • What do you want to be -- a Leader, a Manager, or Both?

    -

    About the Program

    When describing someone that we have worked with, we may say “They are a great leader” … “One of the best managers I have worked for.” What does this really mean by saying these two words…leader and manager. What do you want to be -- a Leader, Manager, or Both? In this presentation we will discuss how we each define the qualities, characteristics, and responsibilities of a leader and a manager. We will discuss strategies to grow your leadership and management skills and how that can result in building a cohesive team and improving customer service and deliverables.

  • Preparing Your Project for Re-Compete & Closeout

    -

    About the Program

    Both contract re-compete and close-out are team efforts that require significant work well in advance of the contract expiration date.  Project Managers often overlook the pivotal role they play in preparing the contract for these critical activities, both of which greatly impact company revenues.  To be successful – whether winning re-compete work or obtaining customer approval for final deliverables and invoices --.preparation must begin day one of contract award.  Re-compete and contract close-out groundwork both require a strategy to identify, gather, retain, and report critical data only the Project Manager can access in its entirety.  This presentation will describe actions the Project Manager must take to help win the project re-compete and complete required contract close-out activities on schedule.

    Preparing Your Project for Re-Compete & Closeout

  • Transforming Stakeholder Resistance into Commitment

    -

    About the Program

    We have all had the experience of trying to collaborate with a stakeholder who just doesn’t seem to be engaged in our project. Resistance from major stakeholders like the sponsor or project team members can make project outcomes that much harder to achieve. Less frequently, we may have a stakeholder overly interested (“meddlesome”) in our project. In this session, we will explore three strategies to shift the attitude of a single stakeholder or a group of stakeholders from resistant toward full commitment (or to a level we deem ideal) to ensure the success of our project. In alignment with the tenth Knowledge Area in the PMBOK, Version 5, learning how to change your perspective and skill to fully engage the project stakeholder can only enhance your ability to coordinate results that meet project scope, within the budget and time allotted.

  • Beyond the PMI Certification

    -

    About the Program

    The PMI Certification provides a valuable baseline documenting an applicant’s knowledge base that can be considered in selecting a project manager. The types of experience an applicant has are also relevant in selecting a project manager. If it’s a development project, how far into a development have applicants managed? Is it a small or large project? The skill sets/approaches to manage a larger project (>$100M) are different than those required on a small project. Are there non-functional requirements called out for the project? This presentation will address these and other criteria involved in obtaining a good match between your project and your project manager.

  • Mastering Project Presentations: Tips and Techniques for Project Managers

    -

    Presenting material and information to groups is a necessary, yet often overlooked skill for project managers.  We are frequently called upon to make presentations. It may be for a simple project meeting, a status review with internal management, or a formal client meeting.  Presenting correct and truthful information may get you by, but if you want to truly stand out, an effective presentation can be the key to making a lasting impression.  Not only can it help your career, but it’s even more important that you represent your team in a way that shines the most favorable light on them!  In this brief session, we will discuss the basic principles of preparing and delivering an effective presentation. You will see how slides can make or break the presentation, and perhaps even learn a little about yourself and the great presenter inside of you trying to break out!

  • Project Management Doesn’t Begin On Day One

    -

    In a quest to find, capture and win a project there are many people who play specific roles. Every organization is different but yet the same in many ways. Those similarities always influence how we do things, the sequence of events, and the resources invested. Of all the people who are trying to land the big fish we sometimes don’t consider when to include the Project Manager. He or she is often a commodity that’s pulled in many directions and seemingly just as difficult to land as the fish itself. So when exactly should a PM show up for work? Where’s that “must have” point in the process? Why then? What are the risks and who’s really on the hook? Well, it depends on who you ask. We’ll explore the answers which may surprise you and of which may make a difference in how you arrive at decisions in your organization.

  • Agile DNA: Why Agile Works

    -

    There is a large and mature body of knowledge that describes, explains and documents agile practices, processes, training and lessons learned. But one question we should also ask is “Why does agile work?” What is it about agile practices that make them effective, especially when compared with more traditional methodologies? This presentation will explore the underlying product development principles that are the basis of, or the DNA, of Agile. These include: working in small batches; effective queue management; distinguishing project management from product development; building in quality; and self-organizing teams. For agile adoption and transformations to be effective, teams, and organizations need a perspective which is steeped beyond what agile is, they need to understand why agile works.

  • Making Portfolio Management A Reality

    -

    Portfolio Management is a methodology that provides an integrated and continuous process to identify, prioritize, and control portfolios of projects in alignment with strategic business objectives and key performance indicators.

  • Budget Conscience Change Control Tool

    -

    We live in a world where funding is tight and organizations have to prioritize where they invest. Organizations are constantly cutting back and trying to “Do More With Less”. In such an environment, it is a challenge for Project Managers to propose new solutions that improves the Business Process. How do we implement changes without impacting the budget?

    Change Control is prevalent in all organizations and normally the business units that have the largest presence (also the loudest voice) get all their changes implement. Project Managers need to analyze all change control requests and weigh their importance effectively. How we manage change requests in our project? How do we do this without implementing new solutions that will indirectly impact the budget? How do we prioritize change requests and meet all organization goals?
