Description:

What is the recipe to deliver projects successfully? It takes the right ingredients and proper amount of time to deliver a successful project. If you skip the crucial ingredients of a recipe it doesn’t turn out perfect. If you use more than required ingredients then also it doesn’t turn out perfect. So, where is the sweet spot?

A right balance of ingredients and managing them throughout the duration of cooking results in a perfect dish. The same is the case with project management processes. If you select the right processes and follow them consistently you end up with a successful Project. With these ingredients/processes you can also turn around projects that have gone south, and get them back to life.

There are eight key ingredients to delivering a successful Project:

1. Project Charter

2. Stakeholder Register

3. WBS (Work Breakdown Structure)

4. Resource Allocation

5. Schedule (Time Line)

6. Communication Plan

7. Risk Register

8. Performance Reporting

Any one or more ingredients you miss in your project will surely lead to unanticipated roadblocks and dead ends. If these steps/ingredients are followed consistently, you end up with successful execution of a project. With these ingredients you can also turn around projects that have failed badly and get them back to life.

In this course, you will learn to utilize the key project management processes and learn the key ingredients to deliver a successful project.

Career Series (Virtual) - How to Prepare to Create a Great Resume during the Pandemic

07-30-2020 6:00 pm -7:30 pm
Webinar
$10.00

Connecting the PM Community with Potential Employers in a Virtual Setting

Please plan to join us for our 3rd virtual event in our Career Series!  

If you are a typical job seeker - you think the first thing you need to do is to write a resume.

This is wrong! The first thing you need to do is prepare to write a resume.

July-VirtualA job search is like a trip. If you decide to go on a trip with the only criteria - I want to go somewhere that will be fun - with a destination (or if you have a destination, without directions), you will get lost - and may not even get to where you want to go. Even if you do find your destination, it will take much longer than if you first researched where you really wanted to go and got a map on how to get there.

It is the same thing with a job search. A resume is only one part of this search - it contains directions (information) for potential employers to select you for the interview. It does not get you the job. You must be able to put in the right information for the employer to identify that you are the right person they want to interview for the job you really want to do. If you don’t identify what you want to do and don’t include the information the employer needs to find you, your resume will not be a great one.

Before you can write a resume, you first need to prepare. This preparation by Robin Schlinger of Robin's Resume consists of several steps:

  • Purpose of Preparing a Great Resume
  • Prepare to Create a Great Resume:
  • Know Where You Want to go
  • Find the Right Job
  • Gather Required Information
  • Gather what you want to include in the Resume
  • Why you also need a good LinkedIn profile
  • Future Steps

Agile (Virtual) Forum - 200818

08-18-2020 6:00 pm -7:15 pm
Webinar
$10.00

"Are we ‘Being Agile’ or merely ‘Doing Agile’?"

presented by M.C. Moore, InterContinental Hotels Group/Senior Scrum Master, GT Commercial Applications Business Management

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.            

PresentationMoore-MC

How many times have you heard in a forum on Agile, or perhaps in a casual discussion among fellow practitioners—are we truly ‘being Agile’ or just ‘doing Agile’? Oftentimes these two concepts are presented as being pitted against one another as you would expect battle combatants. Our discussion, however, will focus on the complex and interconnected relationship between the two. Be prepared to think in a new way about what it means to be ‘doing Agile’!

In our conversation, we will explore:
• the Agile mindset, values, principles, and practices which are the underpinnings of doing Agile
• those corporate values, principles, and practices which may augment (or retard) our ability and effectiveness in doing Agile

Learning objectives:
• Recognize the primacy of mindset as the basis for any Agile transformation;
• Understand how the adherence to the values and principles of the Agile Manifesto, combined with a company’s values and principles all directly influence our ways of working (i.e. practices);
• Raise awareness for the need to manage upward as much as coach and mentor laterally to enable our Agile teams reach their fullest potential.
