Managing Small Projects
Matrin Wartenberg

Presented by by Martin Wartenberg, MBA, P.E.

One size fits one!

All projects are not equal. Trying to execute a small project with a full-up framework and methodolody approach may turn out to be overkill. Small projects are typically executed by “accidental” or “casual” project managers rather than classically trained Project Managers who have been exposed to the complexity of processes and procedures contained in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). The sheer size of the book as well as the complexity of the methodology often frightens the casual project manager into “just winging” it because the formal process appears to be overly complicated. A majority of project run in typical organizations are in the small to medium category (defined as 3 to 10 people for about 3 to 4 months) these usually involve project managers and team members who have had little or no formal project management training.

This pod cast is targeted at this group and provides “just enough” project management to be effective, but not so much that you are overwhelmed with complexity. We will cover all phases from Initiation through Planning, Executing, Control and Monitoring and finally close-out and will discuss the minimum levels of structure and process required for the casual or accidental project manager.

Project Lessons Learned Framework

Presented by Mel Bost

The Project Closeout and Lessons Learned Webinar discusses a framework for capturing, documenting, and sharing project lessons learned from recently completed projects. It integrates well with existing Project Risk Management Plans for projects.

First, we discuss the single project case in which a project manager wishes to document lessons learned at the close of a project he has just completed. Second, we briefly discuss what I call “the multiple project case” in which the lessons learned arise because several projects were subject to the same project environment.

Both of these topics are covered extensively in my forthcoming book about Project Lessons Learned.

Although this webinar is about Project Lessons Learned, the topic “Lessons Learned” is so important in our everyday lives that we have to take a closer look. So I spend a few introductory minutes laying the groundwork for lessons learned in the project context.

This webinar focuses on project lessons learned as a mechanism and framework for closing out projects and contributing to continuous process improvement.

Note the emphasis on Framework, Projects, Process and Continuous Improvement. These concepts are key in our understanding of Project Lessons Learned. You might want to take a moment to review in your own mind these familiar concepts.

What are our Learning Objectives for this Project Closeout and Lessons Learned webinar?

First, to identify lessons learned in a project context.

High Performing PMOs

Presented by Thomas Cutting, PMP

A PMO serves two critical functions in an organization.  First, it is the eyes and ears of management to identify problems and risks.  Second, the team is in the uniquely positioned to help resolve these issues.

Through interacting with project managers, reviewing projects, and analyzing metrics, the PMO is able to pinpoint the challenges and opportunities presented to the company.

This presentation examines what makes a PMO effective in living out its purpose and gets your engine revved with ideas on what can be accomplished.  For the individual already leading a PMO, it will allow you to spot check what you have and tune your organization with best practices that will increase your performance.

You will be able to articulate how a PMO resolves key organizational challenges; think in terms of organizational change to gain commitment; understand the role compliance plays in PMO success; develop a sense of community instead of oversight; and recognize speed bumps that can slow you down

The intent of this session is to present best practices used by high performing PMOs to raise the performance of their organizations.

Why Strong Ethics are Crucial for PM Success

Presented by Jeff Furman, PMP

In this engaging presentation/interview with Cornelius, Jeff discusses the “taboo topic” of ethical issues PMs often face on their projects, and how bad ethics can be very bad business, impacting project success and the bottom line.

He gives a wide range of examples: some from the news, some which were shared by his Project Management Professional (PMP)® students in discussions in his many classes, and some from his own diverse experience as an IT PM and Trainer for Fortune 500 financial companies in Manhattan.

He analyzes these examples from the point-of-view of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), mapping them to specific clauses in the Project Management Institute (PMI)® Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct.

And he offers many tips and suggestions to help PMs handle ethical issues in the future. He also shares exercises and tools from his PMP classes and from the robust ethics chapter in his book: “The Project Management Answer Book.”

Sustainability

Presented by Dave Shirley & Rich Maltzman

This webinar challenges attendees to ask themselves which characteristics of projects make managing them such a compelling career choice and asserts that one of the answers has to do with the way in which projects fit into the overall scheme of the organization or enterprise.

With that backdrop and at least a tiny piece of that existential mystery solved, it covers the drivers that are currently accelerating  enterprises and organizations towards “Triple Bottom Line” thinking at the strategic level, and highlight some that are making a difference (in all three).

Next, introducing the concept of Greenality, and moves move to the core of the webinar – asking, “How does sustainability thinking intersect with project management?”  Where are they aligned, and where are they (apparently) in conflict?  How can project managers make a difference?  What tools exist that can help us bridge the apparent conflict between the task and deliverable-oriented project and the steady-state, long term hum of operations?

Finally, it challenges attendees to learn more about sustainability thinking and demonstrate that this expanded mindset can contribute not only to the altruistic goals of saving energy, reducing pollution, and treating people fairly, but that it can directly serve their projects and their organizations with tangible benefits.  The webinar closes with an invitation to directly collaborate in a non-profit organization devoted to combining sustainability thinking and PM.

Oliver provides insights into the specific challenges of project business and introduces methods for managing it, such as Benefit Engineering.

Part 2:

In the second part of the webinar, Oliver F. Lehmann continues to explore the changes in project management as more projects are outsourced to external contractors and subcontractors, leading to intricate project supply networks.

How Laws and Regulations Affect Projects 2

Interview with James Franklin

In this interview, the discussion revolves around the constraints that projects face due to laws and regulations. These constraints can range from major laws such as Sarbanes-Oxley in the USA, personal data protection laws in the European Union, and intellectual property laws worldwide, to industry-specific regulations in sectors like aerospace or healthcare. Even internal company regulations can impact project choices and limit the freedom to shape projects, demonstrating the importance of understanding and adhering to these laws and regulations in project management.

In the second interview, Jamal delves deeper into the implementation of project portfolio management processes in organizations. He covers topics such as PPM reviews, internal resource costs, mission and strategy importance, C-level executive involvement, portfolio management charters, the halo effect on project selection, and improving the quality of project proposals.

“How do I submit my PMP PDUs to PMI Continuing Certification Requirements System (CCRS)?”

We know how stressful it can be for you to submit your PDUs to PMI after watching 60 hours of lessons. That’s why we have a dedicated module in each one of the courses with detailed step-by-step instructions on how to submit your PDUs to PMI. You will receive a certificate of completion for each course with the exact number of PDUs earned.

If you purchased The PM PrepCast 60 PDU Bundle, you would have to submit two PDU claims, one for each course, to avoid being audited by PMI.
