8 Septembre – Lausanne (SMP) – Être proche des parties prenantes pour être proche de leurs attentes

28 août

Comment faire émerger les détails du travail quotidien des parties prenantes qui vot faire ou défaire le succès de votre projet ?

Beaucoup de projets sont pilotés depuis des bureaux climatisés sans beaucoup de contact avec les parties prenantes, surtout quand celles-ci travaillent dans des conditions peu confortables.

L’état de l’art aujourd’hui préconise de faire des ateliers, des interviews et des sondages pour recueillir les attentes des parties prenantes.

Ces instruments sont certes utiles, mais ne sont guère efficaces pour découvrir les détails du travail quotidien.

Or c’est ce travail quotidien – avec ses petites frustrations, défauts de communication, imprévus et autres couacs – qui détermine bon nombre d’attentes implicites et ce sont souvent celles-ci qui sont à l’origine de la réussite ou de l’échec d’un projet.

La plupart des chefs de projets de formation technique ignorent que des méthodes issues des sciences sociales existent, qui peuvent faire émerger ces détails.

Partenaire de DantotsuPM

After the successes of 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 QRP will organise on Thursday the 22nd of October 2015 the Belgian Best Practice FORUM. This 5th Edition of the yearly QRP Forum is aimed to help (future) Project, Programme and Portfolio managers and has an informative character.

Keeping the same structure of the previous editions, the event aims to be a presentation of succesfull stories from Companies and Organization that are already following the path of the Project/ Programme/ Portfolio management implementation, as well as the presence of our experienced trainers and consultants that will draw the big picture of these methodologies/ framework.

There is no good project management until you don’t have a strong programme management; there is no good programme management until you don’t have a strong portfolio management.

The goal is to show how Projects Programmes → and Portfolios are not only working together in a framework, but most of all, they interact and complement each other in a ever growing “maturity model”.

Exact subject of the presentations will be presented shortly.

Places are limited, don’t wait too long

User-Centric Digital Transformation: User Experience (UX) for Project Managers with Florian Egger

For digital transformation to be successful, businesses are growing increasingly aware of the necessity to be more user-centric, be it their employees for internal systems or their customers for external-facing interfaces.

Florian Egger

Indeed, a good user experience (UX) comes with many advantages: a competitive edge, a stronger brand – and especially happy and loyal customers. On the inside, maximizing the user experience of internal systems means less training, fewer errors and greater employee satisfaction. But user (or customer) experience does not stop at web or mobile interfaces: It extends to all on- and offline touch points to create a consistent multi-channel experience.

While most businesses understand the strategic value of UX, few understand exactly how to tackle it is and how to bring it into a project.

This presentation will give a clear definition of UX and show how it can (and should!) be integrated into projects from the start by following a systematic user-centered design process. Not only will we show typical UX activities along the user-centered design process, we will also point out typical challenges Project Managers have to face in the different phases.

As we believe that real digital transformation should come from the inside, we will also introduce UX-PM, an international UX certification program targeted at Project Managers. UX-PM was launched in 2014 by the User Experience Alliance (UXalliance), an international network of leading UX agencies and recently launched in Switzerland by Telono. This program, consisting of 3 levels of 2 days each, is offered in French or English.

Steve Jobs is one of the icons of innovation of the 20th and 21st century. However, it was not only his creativity that made him famous, but also his vision and persistence for turning ideas into commercial products.

Following his example, ROCHE IT implemented the Innovation Pipeline – a framework that supports management and collaboration when it comes to creating ideas and turning them into innovations within the global IT organization. Pawel Postupalski, Roche IT Innovation Lead, will present key concepts of this framework and, based on several case studies, discuss Roche Informatics approach to innovation management.

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

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.
