July 31 – Webinar (PMI) – Utilizing EVM to Combat Corruption in International Development

23 juil

PMI’s International Development CoP with Suffyan Bashir, PMP

31 July 2014 • 7-8 AM EDT (13:00 CET/France)

management de la valeur acquiseMultilateral and international development organizations have been heavily criticized by governments and donors for not realizing expectations due to lack of accountability leading to corrupt practices, waste of resources, bureaucracy and poor service delivery. This trend has continued to plague development in the third world for decades, according to evaluations conducted on previous projects and programmes.

Many of the existing programming and monitoring tools used by development organizations do not have built-in mechanisms for highlighting shortcomings, discrepancies and financial irregularities and hence cannot effectively expose mismanagement or corrupt practices.

Although Earned Value (EV) has been utilized mainly as a performance measurement tool in the corporate world, it may possibly be employed in development programmes as a tool for accountability and highighting mismanagement of financial resources. The first challenge will be to identify and establish the appropriate EV tools that can be employed within the context of development programmes bearing in mind that development results and outcomes are not expressed as benefits in financial terms. We will then explore a couple of scenarios whereby I will demonstrate how to apply EV in monitoring and controlling development projects to ensure better accountability of project team members while also ensuring funds are not misused.

It is important to recognize that EV alone will not be sufficient to resolve financial mismanagement or wipe out corruption. It must be part of a broader framework that includes various programming, monitoring and auditing techniques that collectively strengthen accountability, enforce regulations and develop business processes that will reduce or greatly minimize illicit financial practices in development projects.(1

Texas Hold’em has seen an explosion in popularity since the World Poker Championships have been featured on TV. Part of this popularity is the easiness of the game to learn, the rush of winning, and the luck factor that is involved. Playing the game is simple. Winning consistently is not simple. The winning Texas Hold’em player has two tactics that project managers must also have to be successful.

  • Ability to make probabilistic assessments
  • Ability to read human behavior as it responds to risk

Just like the Texas Hold’em player, project managers must deal with uncertainty and work with humans. This keynote presentation will provide the project manager with tips for probabilistic assessments and an understanding of human behavior as it specifically relates to risk. To quote Texas Hold’em player Anthony Bee, from Important Concepts in Limit Holdem, “This means being able to recognize profitable situations and exploit them to the full. It also means avoiding unprofitable situations and therefore costly mistakes.” Could Anthony Bee have been talking about project management?

nouvelle enquête de Janice Thomas sur la valeur de la certification en management de projet

20 juil

pmi-research-conferenceUne très sérieuse enquête organisée par Janice Thomas en collaboration étroite avec PMI. Janice a déjà réalisé une très belle enquête sur la Valeur du Project Management, il y a quelques années. Si vous pouvez lui consacrer 30′ cela permettra d’enrichir l’enquête et vous recevrez les résultats en priorité.

Merci d’avance

Project Management certification continues at an increasing rate around the world. Certification is a very important component of professional practice and is a vital component of professional association strategy.Ten years ago we conducted a study designed to understand the value of project management certification processes to individuals making the decision to seek certified project manager status.  This information provided important insights into the value placed on certification by the individual’s that choose to take this step.We are conducting a follow up survey which will provide important insight into how perceptions and attitudes towards certification have changed over the last decade. Comparing the responses over a decade apart will make a unique contribution to our understanding of the development of project management over this period.
To date the survey has taken an average of 33 minutes.

July 24 – Webinar (PMI) – PMs’ Role in Promoting and Supporting Innovation

17 juil

PMI’s Innovation and New Product Development CoP with Rob Beachy and Dr. Harvey Robbins

"The Role of the Project/Program Manager in Promoting and Supporting Innovation"

24 July • 1-2 PM EDT / 19:00 CET/France

Innovation Road Sign with dramatic clouds and sky.Innovation and creativity are challenges at all levels of management, but who is responsible, and how do you encourage the level of innovation and creativity to achieve your goals and objectives.

The level of innovation and creativity is often determined by the Product Manager whose responsibility is to implement the corporate strategy that dictates the level of “newness” required to achieve well defined goals and objectives. These plans often range from line extensions to new to the world ideas.

The Project Manager has the role of managing minor changes and upgrades with known expected time lines and resources, while new to the world or new to the company creativity offers a unique challenge that requires roles that are more collaborative and challenging with no established reference time lines or processes.

The greater the innovation, the greater the challenge in Project and Program management as well as learning how to encourage and resource creativity

We will focus on the opportunities and challenges of more creative projects and programs to provide insights into best practices to achieve success.

Ken Tomlinson

Ken Tomlinson

Ken Tomlinson a accepté de prendre la relève de Jean-Claude Dravet pour continuer le développement de l’association PMI en France au service de ses adhérents.

Lorsque j’ai rejoint le PMI® en Novembre 1997, juste avant Jean-Claude, nous étions moins de 200 membres en France, cette année nous atteindrons les 4000 !

Comme le mentionne Jean-Claude, grâce au développement des branches régionales pour être au plus près des chefs de projets, PMI France est présent sur la presque totalité du territoire français. La France est même devenue le 1er chapitre mondial (hors États-Unis) !

Je souhaite le meilleur à Ken et son équipe pour cette superbe aventure. Je suis certain qu’ils sauront apporter un maximum de bénéfices à leurs adhérents et de manière plus générale à la communauté des chefs de projets, programmes et portefeuilles de projets.
