In the current global economic climate, organizations are forced to “innovate or die.” Only innovative organizations can survive the highly competitive global market. As organizations utilize programs and projects to achieve their strategies and goals, program and project managers have a major role to play in driving an organizational culture of creativity and innovation. 

This seminar focuses on leadership competencies required for project / program managers to manage their teams most effectively and drive an organizational culture of creativity and innovation:  developing their (own) individual creative skills, unleashing their teams’ creative and innovative potentials and building on creativity to drive innovation (both sustaining innovation and disruptive innovation) in their organization. 

An innovation framework for project management will be introduced – a structured approach for program and project managers to utilize in starting and delivering innovation projects.  Participants will explore ways to implement innovation using open innovation and innovation platforms.

Earn 16 PDUs (8 Strategic PDUs + 8 Leadership 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 am and snacks will be served for afternoon break.

Delivering Successful Projects …Every Time - 2019606

11-08-2019 8:30 am - 11-09-2019 4:30 pm
$745.00

Date: Friday, November 8 and Saturday, November 9, 2019
Time: 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM 
Location: Hilton Garden Inn-Atlanta-Perimeter Center at 1501 Lake Hearn Drive, Atlanta, GA 30319

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.
