Participants in this one-day workshop will learn the techniques of Agile Project Management through simulations and examples from real-world projects that used these methods to control changing requirements.
Designed under the Lessons-from-History series, this workshop will breathe new life into your project management learning. The workshop takes lessons from the historical project and enables you to recognize the parallels in your own organization and projects.
1. Articulate the career and personal brand impact of thinking on autopilot especially project managers and business analysts
2. Take stock of your personal critical thinking tool kit including identification of gaps and development areas
3. Explain how to be a thinking partner and not a thinking replacement with your team and other stakeholders.
Basic agile project management certification shows that the candidate understands how to use agile management techniques to manage projects in various environments. Yet, not all projects are created equal: some require a higher level of nuanced understanding of the application agile management techniques plus familiarity with more advanced topics such as organizational governance of agile projects including agile in a CMMI environment, scaling agile projects, agile contracting, agile fixed price projects, and more.
This interactive full-day workshop examines projects that not only changed project management but the world around them. They went way beyond the deliverables, were innovative, ground breaking, overcame perceived insurmountable problems, and kicked off a sequence of changes in the societies they were part of. The workshop weaves a path through the course of history and examines ten of the most influential projects of all time. But the workshop goes beyond telling a nice story and examines the projects through the modern lens of project management and the PMBoK nine knowledge areas.
This workshop is aimed at helping executives refresh or, where necessary, reset their mindset around always earning the right to lead, as opposed to relying on some form of entitlement baked into their organizational rank or job title.
This is a 4-day training course in project management fundamentals followed by the 1/2-day Certified Project Management Associate (CPMA) / IPMA Level-D certification exam.
Capital Project Cost Control by Morley Selver
Project cost control is a very important topic — even more important when the project budgets can often stretch into the hundreds of millions (even billions) of dollars and small mistakes can get magnified into huge problems. This DVD is a live recording of a webinar by Morley Selver, known as "The Project Doctor," who has over 30 years of real-world plant project engineering experience.
Selver has donated all author royalties from the sale of this DVD to the PMAC.
