    Upcoming PMI Webinars



    Project Governance: From Data to Recommendations to Action or Inaction
    Jan 15, 2019 11:00:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
    Presenters: Hang Vo, Terry Williams, Richard Kirkham
    Assurance reviews are essential to the overall good governance of major public projects and programs; in this webinar, we explore some of the challenges around framing and implementing assurance review recommendations during the life-cycle. PMI have funded a research study led by The University of Hull, which seeks to uncover how the treatment of assurance review data influences recommendations and the subsequent actions (or inactions) that arise, using a definitive set of data. During the webinar, we will discuss some of the implications arising from the findings of this study, explore suggestions for improving current assurance processes in practice and identify recommendations for future research.

    Flip the Switch - Shifting to Innovation Centered Project Management
    Jan 15, 2019 1:00:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
    Presenters: Dennis Stauffer, Kimberly Johnson
    Project managers face two competing imperatives, 1) to be as fast and efficient as possible, and 2) to improve what you do and how you do it. The first one is about being on budget, on time and on target. The second one is about doing that better than you did it last time, perhaps radically better. In other words innovating the products you develop and the processes you use to do that. In this webinar you will learn a simple intuitive framework—a mindset—for thinking about your work, that enables that innovation. A switch that will make you and your team more adaptive, resilient and resourceful, as you enhance rather than compromise your efficiency.

    How to Facilitate Productive Planning Meetings
    Jan 17, 2019 11:00:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
    Presenter: Jim Stewart
    Planning is vital to your project execution and success. Projects are often multifunctional, requiring input from various stakeholders. Project planning often tends to be done piecemeal or not at all, often leading to missing and/or incomplete information and correspondingly poor results. Effective planning meetings will help you not only develop key artifacts but also provide continuous team building. This webinar will discuss how to effectively facilitate productive face-to-face kickoff sessions (both in person and virtual) and ongoing planning meetings. You’ll also learn about the impacts of culture (organizational and global) on team dynamics.

    Project HEADWAY: What I Wish I Learned At Project Management School
    Jan 17, 2019 3:00:00 PM EST (UTC-5)
    Presenter: Mark Mullaly
    In this webinar, Mark Mullaly explores an alternative project management curriculum. Join him to find out what he wished he had learned at project management school—and what we can all benefit from learning as well.

    The Agile Enterprise: From Agile Teams to Agile Organization
    Jan 18, 2019 9:00:00 AM EST (UTC-5)
    Presenter: Stelian ROMAN
    This webinar looks at Agility at the Enterprise level from a Project Manager perspective, explaining the difference between the new Agile Enterprise (a top down Agile approach) and Enterprise Agile (the bottom up Agile transformation) that is scaling popular Agile frameworks from team level to organisation level.
