July 16 – Webinar (PMI) – Establishing Risk-based Schedule and Cost Contingency

3 juil

dépenser spentEstablishing and managing schedule and cost contingency are integral to project risk management.

Yet many organizations still struggle to define and adopt best practices that provide the organization confidence in their contingency setting processes.

Understand the challenges of traditional approaches to setting schedule and cost contingency and why they can undermine project success.

Then, take a look at an analysis-based approach using an integrated schedule and cost risk analysis to understand the impact of risks on the project, identify risk and quantify the impact of those risks, and then evaluate multiple scenarios to determine the appropriate schedule and cost contingency.

This technique provides more insight and confidence for the project team and stakeholders.

At the Ignite Conference, Microsoft presented the first features of the new Microsoft Project version to the public. Compared to Microsoft Project Server 2013, the imminent release does not seem very extensive at first glance. But looks can be deceiving.

In companies with matrix organizations, the significant expansion of capacity and resource management in Microsoft Project 2016 brings additional transparency to the interaction between project planning and line planning.

votre message d’absence en anglais pour partir en toute sérénité !

1 juil

Cette semaine, Christina Rebuffet nous propose une brève vidéo qui nous donne un modèle de message d’absence en anglais !

Partez en vacances l’esprit tranquille sachant que vos collègues étrangers (qui prennent peut-être moins de congés que nous…) n’attendront pas de réponse immédiate de votre part ! En 5 minutes vous serez prêt pour le départ…

N’oubliez pas: Il semble que ce ne soit jamais le bon moment pour que le chef de projet prenne des congés.

Cependant les vacances ne sont en rien facultatives et elles sont même absolument nécessaires.

vacances !!!

Comme les chefs de projet carburent souvent à 150 % de leurs capacités pendant des périodes prolongées, leur motivation et performance risquent for de montrer des signes de fatigue…

…alors, déculpabilisez, positionnez votre message d’absence et déconnectez (tout en continuant à suivre DantotsuPM pour le plaisir :-) bien sûr)

Bonnes vacances !!!

Les Lean entrepreneurs parlent de MVP (minimum viable product: produit viable minimal), mais bien plus important est le Projet Maximum Faisable.

Étant donné les ressources à votre disposition (vos moyens, votre temps, votre patience), quel est le plus gros résultat que vous pensez pouvoir atteindre ?

Notre culture est organisée autour des gens qui sont là où on les attend, qui tiennent toujours leurs promesses, qui délivrent. “Très probablement” est en effet une approche confortable.

shooting at targetDomino Pizza pourrait avoir offert la livraison en 5 minutes, et parfois, sans doute, ils auraient réussi. Mais promettre quelque chose qu’ils pouvaient répéter quasiment à chaque fois leur a valu un numéro court d’appel mémorisé sur des millions de téléphones.

Viser trop haut est juste une tactique aussi néfaste que viser trop bas. Avant de promettre de changer le monde, il est raisonnable de d’abord commencer par changer votre quartier.

Nov 4&5 – Zürich & Lausanne – Amazing IPM Day(s) in Switzerland

29 juin

Amazing International Project Management Day 2015 Events in Zürich (Nov 4th) and Lausanne (Nov 5th) organized by PMI Switzerland

Did you ever wonder what singers do, when they do not perform on stage?

Turns out, it’s not so different from what project managers do – each concert and each CD production is a project on its own, which has to be managed with the same care as IT or construction projects.

Jaël Malli

Jaël Malli

So are singers, musicians and movie stars « just » regular project managers? And what makes them still so different, that these professions are the dream jobs of many, while you won’t find a single child who wants to become a project manager…..

Jaël Malli will tell us about her most recent project – creating her first solo CD – and shows us how close her work is to traditional project management and what still sets it apart. With that she might trigger some ideas, how project managers can make their profession appear more attractive in front of their stakeholders.
