Presentation DetailsCox-Matt

Many organizations are making commitments to long-term energy goals, but not all of these are backed by an evidence base that informs feasibility and strategy to achieving such a goal. The production and inclusion of multiple kinds of data regularly results in dramatic variations in planning and implementation and improves program effectiveness.

Supply Chain Systems and Programs for Sustainability
presented by Nathan Sparks, Founder and Consulting Partner

The PMI Atlanta Healthcare Forum has 9 planned sessions throughout 2020. 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.

Due to coronavirus concerns, we will be hosting this event through webinar. Because of this change, member rate is now $8 and non-member rate is $10.

PresentationSparks-Nathan

Customers’ expectations for a sustainable future is of vital importance, and that means investors care too. Firms must have strategies and examples to attract new customers and share owners. Sustainability examples are plentiful in firms who continuously work to assess and improve. Leaders must embrace honesty, transparency and continuous improvement, investing in analysis, technology, and positive process change. Firms leading already know their purpose and design their products and solutions with the wisdom of their teams. They build holistic improvement plans within safe culture to assess themselves and their suppliers. They satisfy customers with greater value, have fewer undesirable social and environmental impacts, and higher profitability.

In the talk, Nathan will discuss examples where firms have succeeded and failed, considering these four areas:

Purpose: Operating in alignment with your purpose, in the eyes of the client
Efficiency: Delivery goods and services with the total cost in mind and designed for reuse and recycling.
Satisfaction: Customers and employees benefit from operational excellence and it requires planning and execution.
Culture: Expectation for integrity with principles, and continuous improvement, both internally and along the value chain.

Ask an Agilist: “When will you be done?” How to answer this question to leaders and others!

presented by Ryland Leyton, Sr. Agile Business Analyst  

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.      

Due to coronavirus concerns, we will be hosting this event through webinar. Because of this change, member rate is now $8 and non-member rate is $10.      

PresentationLeyton-Ryland

Answering “when will you be done?” to people outside the team – like the C-suite, Directors, and Managers – is often a challenge for teams focused on building software. In Agile situations it can be even more complicated!

Speaking to this group in a way comprehensible for an elevator or a hallway is a core competency for any project manager who wants to retain freedom and funding!

This session takes a walk through explaining the concept of velocity, applies the Agile concept of the “cone of uncertainty”, reviews the value of burn-up and burn-down charts, and then shows you how to provide a clear, simple understandable, and truthful answer about when you’ll be done.

Project Management in Chaos
presented by Lee Palmer, Sr. Director Customer Service Technical Operations

The PMI Atlanta Healthcare Forum has 9 planned sessions throughout 2020. 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.

PresentationPalmer-Lee

“Ready, Fire, Aim!” How do you prevent chaos when a crisis arises that requires project management?

Not all projects have the luxury of being executed in a linear manner with stability and ample time to plan. There are instances where immediate action is needed and projects must be initiated without a detailed project management plan in place.

• How do you ensure resources are focused on the correct priorities in the correct sequence when everything seems urgent and needed immediately?
• How do you initially communicate to the internal and external stakeholders?
• How do you keep everyone informed of day-to-day progress and help needed?
• How do you know if you are on track for success or failure?
• How do you pivot and adapt when major unexpected obstacles arise for well-planned projects that seemed on-track for success?

This presentation will feature case studies and lessons learned for “Project Management in Chaos” from the perspective of a healthcare equipment manufacturer.
