Governance Forum - 190724

07-24-2019 6:00 pm -8:00 pm

Gamification of Governance: Increasing PM productivity and governance adherence through incentive and professional development.
present by Lisa Favors, Ersnt & Young (EY)/Associate Director

The Governance Forum provides value to the PMI Atlanta community by offering participants:

Discussion of field-tested best practices, Decisions frameworks to assess culture and apply optimal strategy, Key takeaways to “take to work tomorrow” to maximize realization of value through introduction and standardization of best practices in the oversight and execution of projects, programs, and portfolios.

Presentation DetailsFavors-Lisa

Getting PMs to follow governance is not an easy task. Workload, project pace, and constant competing priorities can make methodical project management best practices fall by the way side. Structured recognition, reward and development programs can help incentivize governance adherence, improving project management rigor, team growth, reporting cadence and delivery. In this event we will share some “take to work tomorrow” tactics to gamify governance proving successful at Ernst & Young.

Clinical Research Forum - 190808

08-08-2019 6:00 pm -8:00 pm

"Agile Project Management and Its Application to Solving Antimicrobial Resistance in Clinical Research Pursuits"

presented by Dr. Senait Kebede, International Health Consultancy, LLC and Olatunde Adekunle, Director of Agile Delivery, UST Global

The PMI Atlanta announced a new forum in 2018 - Clinical Research Forum. Join us in Marietta!


AdekunleOlatundeKebedeSenaitAntimicrobial Resistance: Why We Should Care About This Challenge

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is increasingly recognized as one of the biggest and most urgent threat to global health, food security and development. Although AMR can occur naturally due to genetic changes of microorganisms, the most common factors hastening the process is misuse and overuse of antimicrobials in humans and animals and poor adherence to infection control measures. It is estimated that 700,000 deaths occur annually due to AMR and if the trend continues, over 10 million deaths per year and over 100 trillion USD will be lost globally by 2050. Transmission of resistant pathogens found in animals, food, water and the environment is influenced by trade, travel and migration of both human and animals. The various factors and complex interactions driving AMR require national, regional and global policies grounded on public health principles including increased awareness and enhanced efforts towards robust surveillance, prevention, containment and research efforts. It is therefore essential for coordinated action to address the challenges of AMR through multi-sectoral collaboration at national and global levels using a One-health approach.

Uncover the Lies, Myths, and Truths of Agile Transformation

Many organizations today are confronted with the need to be part of the Agile transformation. This presents a significant challenge to most organizations, one that involves a profound change over many years, which will include a shift in personnel, culture, as well as mindset.

Traditionally most organizations have operated using Waterfall and the transition to Agile will include a radical shift in attitudes and values as it relates to functional and cross-functional collaboration—in effect a change in organizational culture. In some respects, the necessary steps may include organization re-org and even a reduction in workforce. Now the secret question: Is This TRANSFORMATION Worth It?
