"Population Health and U.S. Healthcare System: Opportunities for Project Management Applications" Presented by Dr. Imoh Okon, Georgia State University Assistant Professor,  Clinical Research, PhD. MSc, MPH (c), PMP

The PMI Atlanta Healthcare Forum has 9 planned sessions throughout 2018. Proposed topics include IT & IT PMO in Healthcare, Healthcare SME/Domain Forums such as Clinical, Laboratory, Research, Tomorrow's Healthcare & Government practices/law, Thought Leadership in Healthcare, and Innovation in Healthcare Technology.

Presentation

Traditional project management (PM) applications predominantly focused within certain industries, including construction, engineering and telecommunications. Tangible benefits of PM resulted in wide acceptance across OkonImoh several non-traditional sectors, especially within the last three decades. The U.S. health system comprises various stakeholders (providers, patients, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, government agencies, etc.), and offers enormous opportunities of PM applications that directly impact on quality, affordability (timeliness and costs) and efficiency.

Dr. Okon presents a system-lens perspective of population health at the intersection of PM applications.

Summary:

  1. Overview of my research, technological advances and PM in research
  2. U.S. Healthcare system: What has PM got to do with it?
  3. Determinants of health: Any roles for PM applications?
  4. Health-in-all-policies: Implications and opportunities for PM
  5. Future of U.S. healthcare: Opportunities for leveraging PM to advance population health

"From Project Manager to Producer: Is There a Difference?"

Presented by: Lisa Ferrell, Executive Producer

Producer and Project Manager – the job descriptions for these titles can vary from company to company or industry to industry, but more often than not, they are used interchangeably.  However, there is a difference in what is actually required from each role and understanding that difference is vital to your project – and career. It's more than vernacular—it's about mindset.

Both traditional (Waterfall) methodology and Agile methodology have pros and cons and can be effective ways to structure a project. For teams that are not practicing Agile, there are still Agile practices that can benefit them. Daily standups, retrospectives, and many other key Agile practices and ceremonies can benefit even a Waterfall team. For many, the most arduous part of transitioning to Agile in a waterfall environment happens at the beginning—in the uncertainty of how to put the initiative into motion. 

In this seminar, strategies and best practices to begin incorporating Agile practices are revealed. Real-world experiences working with existing project teams to begin incorporating Agile practices and ceremonies are shared. By initiating practices, teams start to understand Agile principles and mindset and become better prepared to take the next steps on their Agile journey. Specific Agile practices, and how to adapt each one to a traditional environment, are covered.

Siu-ConnieGreat solutions effect lasting results. Every project is an investment to enhance the state of a business. In order to deliver the best solution to a business challenge, you need to be very clear on the desired outcomes.

To secure funding for a project, you need to quantify benefits and justify the investment. To expedite project delivery, you need to steer team members away from irrelevant and insignificant issues that gobble up time and effort. To transition with clear ownership upon project completion, you need to provide the operations team a clear mandate with the proper tool to monitor the outcomes.

In this 2-day course, you learn a deliberate process to articulate results and develop relevant performance measures that help to ensure the project has a clear line-of-sight to the corporate goals. The rigor establishes clarity on the desired outcomes, enabling you filter noise and focus on the critical things that matter. You learn about the discipline necessary to measure and monitor pertinent performance, as well as the culture that fosters embracement at all levels, driving execution alignment and accelerating results delivery.

You will work on different exercises to practise what you learn so that you would be ready to apply the techniques upon returning to the office.
