Upcoming PMI Webinars

    Practical Project Management that Works: Real World Best Practices from the 20th Anniversary of a Great International Initiative
    Mar 19, 2019 11:00:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)

    Presenter: Daniel Sklar
    Programs and projects -- whether large or small, complex or simple, multi-country or single city -- can be highly successful by performing practical project management. This webinar goes beyond theory and shows you real world examples of best practices in action. The examples come from an international program conducted by the world's largest bottler of non-alcoholic beverages as it converted from local currencies to the euro. Every customer, supplier, and employee was impacted, as well as anything containing a monetary value, from systems and spreadsheets to paper forms and vending machines. This program, internally called the Euro Initiative, affected the company’s operations in multiple countries and spawned over 200 sub-projects. The Euro Initiative achieved success by following project management best practices in a practical and intelligent manner. A top-level sales director stated it was the best project with which he had ever been associated. This webinar will present slides from the actual project and highlight key learnings that Project Managers may apply to their own projects. It may have been 20 years ago, but we should still follow these best practices today.

     

    Systematic Innovation in Complex Environments
    Mar 19, 2019 1:00:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)

    Presenters: Darrell Mann, Kimberly Johnson, Mick Kuehn
    As the world becomes more inter-connected, it becomes inherently more complex and more prone to tipping into chaos. This phenomenon is not helped by the fact that most individuals do not understand the differences between how complex systems work. A lot of our assumptions are plain wrong when it comes to complexity – we look for root causes when there are none; we adopt command-and-control management strategies when self-organisation is the only viable method; and we fail to recognise that whenever discontinuous change happens, things will get worse before they get better. This webinar offers a crash-course in complex systems theory and provides real-world examples of how enterprises that embrace the complexity are progressively displacing traditional organisations.

    Critical Role of Stakeholder Management in Project Management Success during an Emergency Response
    Mar 26, 2019 1:00:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)

    Presenter: neiger green
    Lessons Learned from the 2014-2016 Ebola Virus Response Project management is like building a house - the right way. What if the house was built on water in the middle of the rainy season? During an emergency response, that is what project management feels like. But who doesn't want to live on a house boat? The requirements to being a successful project manager during an emergency response are similar in theory but require a rapid scale-up of stakeholder efforts without overlooking the cultural sensitivities required for compliance, adherence, support, and sustainability.
