RESHEDULED: From Managing Scope to Achieving Business Results
    Oct 6, 2020 2:00:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)

    Presenters: Fernando Arturo Santiago, Linda Elizabeth Szmyt
    PPM (Project and Portfolio Management) professionals face the need to change focus, from controlling the delivery of scope to achieving business outcomes. The tools and approaches that have been used for PPM will simply not work in a future that has already arrived. The adoption of agile, increased investment in digitalization, and the need for speed and agility are creating the “perfect storm” predicted by Gartner, Ignoring these trends is not an option. PPM professionals have to change focus, from scope to business outcomes, from the reduction of uncertainty to embracing and leveraging uncertainty, encouraging innovation, and systematically executing strategy towards the realization of financial value. This presentation presents a framework that focuses on business outcomes, instead of scope, as the unit to plan and track, from project to portfolio levels. This way, funding is allocated to outcomes, and delivery is tracked based on its impact on planned impact to outcomes. The session presents a number of tools and techniques that can be used to build a portfolio management framework that focuses on business value and treats projects as investments. This includes how to plan and track benefits for agile projects. Finally, the session explores the cultural aspects involving in this change in perspective and how current traits found in organizational cultures explain the status-quo. The session presents the values that are fundamental to succeed in implementing an outcome-driven organization.

    Getting Under the Hood of the PMBOK® Guide – Seventh Edition Part 5: A System for Value Delivery
    Oct 19, 2020 12:00:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)

    Presenters: Giampaolo Marucci, Cyndi Snyder Dionisio, Marvin Nelson
    Our “Getting Under the Hood” series continues with a webinar that explores how projects operate within a larger system for value delivery. Value often has different meanings dependent on the mission and vision of a given organization. The unique characteristics of projects determine the best approach for carrying out the work of the project. The PMBOK® Guide – Seventh Edition recognizes the presence of these interdependent and interrelated systems and provides project teams with the needed flexibility to conduct the work of the project in a way that enables the desired outcomes from the project.

    Presenters: Barry O'Reilly, Larry Prusak, Stephen Townsend, Jill Diffendal, Tammy Ashraf, PMI-ACP
    Join three of our Center Stage podcast guests for a provocative dialogue on how knowledge coupled with unlearning enable innovation. Guest Larry Prusak highlighted the true competitive edge of knowledge, “When you have a project team, it matters far less what an individual knows. It matters greatly what the team knows.” Does this threaten the value of a project manager? Both Larry and guest Barry O’Reilly caution against knowledge becoming stale. Larry says, “Refresh the knowledge you have. Always be open. Always be learning.” But Barry believes you may have to throw some of what you know in the trash: "It’s…the inability to unlearn existing mindsets and behaviors that were effective in the past but now are maybe limiting your success." What does this mean for adhering to methodologies when faced with uncertain requirements, divergent stakeholders and evolving delivery methods? As Peter Temes points out, there is often a tension between managing for efficiency and managing for discovery. Does managing for efficiency hold you back from finding innovative ways of working?
