PMI’s New Practitioners Community of Practice with David Shirley, MBA, PMP
10 December • 12 – 1 PM EST (18:00 CET/France)
IT is a significant part of modern business. The way we use energy to power our information technology is unsustainable. We all need to be more proactive in the way we design, manage and, most importantly, use our IT resources. The purpose of this webinar is to introduce you, as consumer and project manager, to the importance of Green IT. By “greening up” our IT, we will save precious resources. Remember, one of those limited resources is money. We will also discuss ways in which resources can be more efficiently utilized.
David Shirley, PMP, MBA, is a consultant, educator and trainer in project management, sustainability and corporate social responsibility whose website is www.earthpm.com.He is the author of the book "Green Project Management"
A PMI Government Community of Practice webinar
If you want to succeed, you must learn how to connect with people.
While it may seem like some people are just born with that ability, the fact is anyone can learn how to make every communication an opportunity for a powerful connection. Connecting with others — one-on-one and in groups — improves your sense of community, increases your ability to create teamwork and skyrockets your influence. People who connect with others have better relationships, experience less conflict, and get more things done than those who cannot connect. Leaders who have learned the art of connection are able to communicate their ideas persuasively to a diverse group of people, establishing buy-in and attracting followers/supporters.
To be a successful project manager and an effective leader, you need to learn to communicate in a way that connects with others.
Join us and learn how to identify with people and relate to others in a way that increases your influence with them.
Date and Time: 10 December 2013 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM Local Time (UTC +0100) (1 hour)

En partenariat avec le PMI, l’association TOC France a le plaisir de vous convier le 26 novembre 2013 à la conférence
Comment booster votre productivité, réduire délais et coûts de vos projets ?
Approche globale, la Théorie des Contraintes (TOC) cible les actions qui permettent d’atteindre très rapidement les objectifs de performance. Une logique basée sur une solide compréhension des causes et des effets sert de base pour développer des solutions en rupture avec la concurrence. Il s’agit de concentrer les efforts là où se produiront les résultats les plus significatifs avec le minimum d’investissement.
Les opérations de maintenance sont des projets complexes comportant plusieurs milliers de tâches truffées d’aléas et nécessitant une parfaite synchronisation de ressources multiples afin de tenir des délais souvent très courts (quelques jours à quelques mois). Au cours de cette conférence, vous pourrez découvrir les gains (délais, throughput, coûts) de la mise en œuvre de la TOC dans la maintenance aérienne. Cet exemple d’application de la TOC est transposable à vos projets dans d’autres environnements (engineering, engineering-to-order).

PMI’s Requirements Management Community of Practice with Michele Maritato
21 November 2013 • 12 – 1 PM EST (6PM CET/France)
Establishing a proper requirement management process will provide high value to the project. It will give the project the right start; it will lead the project planning towards the creation of value for the business; it will guarantee the voice of the business is heard throughout the project; it will increase the maturity of the organization in creating business value through the projects.
The project manager must first understand that requirements are documented and managed at different levels, involving many stakeholders. And the schema which include Business, Stakeholder, Solution and Transition Requirements should be followed as best practice.
Mastering the project requirements is considered a complex endeavor but in fact it isn’t.
This webinar will present an approach to Requirements Management that includes the following stages: Preparing, Eliciting, Analyzing, Approving and Managing. For each stage the main processes are also described, to suggest the Project Manager the most important topics he should focus his attention. This approach can be used in every project, though the Project Manager must understand that the approach might change throughout all project management process groups: the category of requirements is different at Initiating and Planning, and the weight of each stage might change as well along the project.
Bringing into the project a professional Requirements Management approach can improve significantly the project results and lead the project in delivering a real business value.
Michele Maritato, MBA, PMP, PMI-RMP, CBAP has over 20 years experience in Project Management and Business Analysis and served as Vice President Organization of the PMI Northern Italy Chapter.
