Harnessing the Power of Liberating Structures

presented by Brent Hickman, Invesco/Principle Program Manager

The Agile Forum meetings offer an opportunity for professional networking and knowledge sharing with other agile practitioners as well as provide a learning environment for professionals interested in learning about agile techniques. Everyone is welcome to participate.                                                       

PresentationHickman-Brent

We kick off the 2020 PMI Agile Forum by learning how to harness the power and excitement of Liberating Structures to create a ranked Topic/Speaker Backlog for the upcoming 2020 sessions.

Liberating Structures are easy-to-learn microstructures that enhance collaboration and trust, quickly fostering lively participation in groups of any size, and making it possible to truly include and unleash everyone.

For this session we will first learn about the Liberating Structure called 25/10 Crowd Sourcing as a fun, fast and casual way to engage the entire audience to generate an uncensored set of bold ideas and then to tap the wisdom of the whole group to identify and rank the top ten ideas. Next we will utilize Open Space, grouping around the idea you are most passionate about in order to flush out the details including acceptance criteria.

Delivering Successful Projects …Every Time - 2019606

01-24-2020 8:30 am - 01-25-2020 4:30 pm
$795.00

Although many successful project management practitioners are “accidental project managers,” successful projects should not be “accidental.” By utilizing major contributors to project success and avoiding the leading causes of project failure, project success should be predictable and repeatable, instead of a hit-and-miss occurrence.

What are the most important project management skills for delivering successful projects every time?  As a starting point, project management practitioners should focus on developing skills from the PMI Talent Triangle: technical project management skills, strategic and business management skills, and leadership skills. They should also emphasize and apply principles from A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). However, not all processes can be applied to every project at every organization. The successful project manager recognizes the need to adapt practices from the PMBOK® Guide to individual initiatives within their own organization’s process and culture.

Research studies have identified the reasons for project failure and reasons for project success. PMI’s Pulse Research identifies a number of key factors affecting project outcomes. For example, 47% of unsuccessful projects fail to meet goals due to poor requirements management. To address this, it’s critical for organizations to implement standardized requirements management processes in collaboration with stakeholders. There is also the need to develop a formal (agile/traditional) project management methodology, implement standardized tools and infrastructure through a strategic Program Management Office (PMO), and ensure executive management support for projects. PMI’s Pulse research also shows that having an actively engaged executive sponsors is the top driver of project success. These critical success factors, when implemented and achieved in collaboration with stakeholders, can lead to consistent delivery of successful projects.

This workshop describes an approach to ensure consistent delivery of successful projects by focusing on major contributors to project success: effective requirements management, a strategic PMO that implements standardized (agile and/or traditional) project/program/portfolio management, and executive management sponsor engagement.

Earn 16 PDUs (8 Technical PDUs + 8 Strategic PDUs) with 14 (classroom) hours and pre-seminar reading assignments. Take advantage of discounted rates for PMI members. 

Continental breakfast will be served at 8:00 and snacks refreshments will be served for afternoon break.

This seminar has been offered by the same instructor, Victoria S. Kumar, PMP, PMI-ACP, CSM, CSPO, SA for PMI SeminarsWorld as a two-day seminar.
