About the Program

How many times have you been facilitating a meeting and seen executives spend too much time on details that were completely irrelevant to the meeting? Your meeting is over and you didn’t even get the decisions made necessary to keep your project moving! Ugh. Bad news...we do it to ourselves! You gave them MORE information than they needed and distracted them from focusing on the immediate actions and decisions necessary to keep that project going.

We believe reporting should be simple and information sharing straightforward. Our one page executive dashboard can be used for a single project or modified to provide information for an entire portfolio of projects. The key to this report is that you must give executives the information they need to make educated and informed decisions...then stop! Don't provide too much information. It only muddies the waters of effective decision making. If you want your executives to focus, give them that focus. Tell them what they need to know and do in order to keep you and your projects moving forward...then you can get back to what you do best, which is to Get. It. Done.

Session: 

Risk Management and the PMO

Tools

Most project managers understand the basics of managing project-level risks, using the tried-and-true risk matrix that prioritizes risks according to probability and impact, so that we can then work risk management strategies. If this is done well on each project, it might be tempting to conclude that our risk management job is done. But is it? Are we leaving ourselves open to broader risk exposure by looking at each project on its own?

PM Tools is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.

Both the PM Tools session and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
