Governance Forum - 190327

03-27-2019 6:00 pm -8:00 pm
$15.00

"How to Govern When There Is No Governance: Agile XP"

Presented by Joe Sisto, Director for Software Development, Nexient

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

Agile Methodologies leave governance processes as an open topic. You can implement some basic oversight over data, architecture, releases and programs that keep the speed of Agile, while reducing overhead with some additions to Agile XP.

Many people believe that Agile and Governance are mutually exclusive terms.   However, there are places in Agile Methodologies, where Sisto-JoeGovernance adds value. 

This session describes some processes that can be put into place for portfolio review, architecture, data and code maintenance and support processes… We also cover the topic of Governance and Agile in general to see what areas can be improved in in the future.

Architectural, Engineering, & Construction (AEC) Forum - 190409

04-09-2019 6:00 pm -8:00 pm
$13.00

"Construction Project Management & the Renovation of John F. Kennedy Park"

Presented by Arnie Silverman, President and CEO, Sliverman Construction Program Management and Brett Daniels Chief Operating Officer of Atlanta Superbowl Committee

The PMI Atlanta AEC Forum is a focus group that hosts regular events with ranging topics in the architectural, engineering, and construction fields. We will show the importance of solid project management in these related fields of study.

Presentation

Construction is an inherently a complex endeavor. Successful delivery requires a well-crafted management plan, a disciplined approach to carrying it out, and effective leadership of the program/project team. A Construction Project Management professional can help identify specific Sliverman-A-Daniels-Bneeds, mobilize appropriate staff and manage implementation.

The renovation of John F. Kennedy Park located in Atlanta’s historic Westside neighborhood was a transformational project completed in a matter of months. This project was made possible by a $2.4 million grant supported by funding from the NFL Foundation, Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee and the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation and others.

Silverman Construction Program Management (Silverman CPM) was engaged to serve as Program Manager and Owner’s Representative for the renovation to ensure the Design-Build project finished on time and on budget. Since this was the Legacy project for the Super Bowl, it was critical that the project, which got off to a late start, be completed by Super Bowl week. As with every project, there were unforeseen circumstances and weather events that required creative solutions to prepare the park for the ribbon cutting event.  The amount of rain during the construction was a major impediment.

Arnie Silverman, CEO of Silverman CPM and Brett Daniels, COO of the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee, will discuss the details of the renovation, successes of the project team, and lessons learned.
