PMI UK Webinar: Benefits Realisation Management: Maps, Profiles and Evaluation. 11th August 2020

11-08-2020 4:00 pm -5:00 pm
Free

A constant focus on benefits is probably the biggest factor in determining project success. But many organisations have made benefits realisation management so complicated, and benefits realisation so divorced from the day-to-day project decisions, that it’s difficult or impossible to maintain that ‘constant focus’.

Dr Minney will facilitate us through the basics of benefits management which every organisation should be doing in order to gain the benefits of benefits management:

  • Understand different approaches to benefits mapping, and their use and abuse, whys and purpose
  • What information do you need in a benefit profile to ensure that that benefit has a high chance of success – and how to prioritise so that you only put the work into the most relevant benefits
  • How to put a value on each benefit, and how to defend this in a business case
  • How to use this information to make better decisions, and how to keep it relevant and up-to-date

PMI Aberdeen Virtual Event: Practical Tips for morphing to a Remote Project Team. 27th August 2020

27-08-2020 6:30 pm -8:30 pm
Free

While not intended as such, the COVID 19 lockdown has been a massive experiment in remote working. Many companies have found it to be beneficial and will want to continue with it in some form. However, managing remote project teams is not as simple as moving meetings onto Zoom or Teams. If only we could hear from an expert in remote teams and remote projects to learn what the best practices are and how to maintain the benefit we have seen from remote working.

PMI UK Webinar: The role of Collaborative Relationships in complex Projects. 3rd September 2020

03-09-2020 12:00 pm -1:00 pm
Free

Collaboration is a common terminology in todays business world but is seldom fully understood or fully integrated into working practices.

As major projects become increasingly more complex in both national and international programmes relationships between organisations and their people can represent a significant risk to the parties involved.

The development and publication of the international standard for collaborative working focused on how organisations can take a systemic approach to ensuring the appropriate focus on those key strategic relationships.

Most people would say that their ultimate number one fear is Public Speaking.  Bizarrely though rather not surprisingly, this rates higher than loneliness, networking, darkness and even death!  That’s right, as Jerry Seinfeld once said ‘if you do go to a funeral, you’re better off in the casket than doing the eulogy!’

This webinar will introduce how psychology and cognitive bias affects what we think we know and how we make decisions. It is based on research by Kevin and his team, and surveys of almost 700 professionals during the first half of 2020.

It will cover the impact of the way that we estimate and make decisions on outcomes and benefits realisation, what was the result of the research by Kevin and his team as well as some practical ideas to improve our influence and effectiveness.
