Project Management Workshops
SCOPING & PLANNING A PROJECT IN A DAY
Instead of the traditional approach to scoping and planning a project – through endless meetings – brainstorming sessions – workshops – review cycles – waiting time on sign off by key stakeholders. Alternatively, we can concentrate all those activities into a one-day focused workshop. The big idea here is that it’s possible to complete projects much more quickly than we do at the moment. By treating each project day as being precious and irreplaceable and you get far more productivity from that day – at the same time avoiding working long hours, burnout and death march projects.
C-SUITE INNOVATION PROJECT MANAGEMENT
If continuous and sustainable innovation is to occur, then innovation leadership and project management must be married together and with a clear understanding of each other’s roles. Innovation defines what we would like to do and project management determines if it can be done. The marriage also may require that both parties learn new skills and create a corporate culture that supports idea management practices (Harold Kerzner 2019). Executives and project managers have to show leadership in bringing together all the disparate aspects of theory, reality, vision, process, finances, adding value and benefits to create successful outcomes.
RISK MANAGEMENT, PROJECT CONTROLS & ESTIMATING
Every project is important and every project has risk. Every hour and every euro are the keys to each successful project. Making good decisions that take account of real-world uncertainties can provide a margin of safety and profit. Failing to identify or predict the risks on projects can make or break any company. A project risk analysis and management plan can help avoid any serious issues that manifest on your projects. The PSI is a measurement technique you can take at any point in a project’s lifecycle, and it tells you how likely or not the project is to succeed. Experience shows that projects are successful when the same nine things are closely observed – the project goal, the project plan (change control, proper estimates, duration and effort) the leader, the availability of people, the opportunity, the risk, the management style of the project manager, the way the project is tracked and reported.
EXECUTIVE PROJECT LEADERSHIP
Turn your organizations project management capabilities into a competitive advantage. Whether you are in charge of a team, a department or at enterprise, leadership level, leadership skills are absolutely essential. to sustaining profitable business change.
