8 September – Dübendorf – Learn the Secrets of Process Management

22 Juil

In an interactive session you will get introduced to and practice the Picture Card Design Method (PCDM).

Dr. Markus Gappmaier

Dr. Markus Gappmaier

With Dr. Markus Gappmaier, learn the theory behind effective business process modelling and re-engineering and apply it to your work experience: identify quick wins for the processes you use every day and smoothen the implementation of process changes introduced by your projects.

Although for most PCDM remains a “hidden jewel”, this simple yet effective method has been helping companies all over the world for almost 20 years to optimize and innovate their processes — including those relevant for project management, such as planning, creating concepts and following up.

PCDM uses a participatory, visual approach to create flexible process models in a very helpful systematic way. It provides method support far beyond comprehensive process modeling; from realizing quick wins based on well-informed process analysis to identifying all project tasks required for the implementation of newly created processes.

After a short theoretical introduction, you will apply PCDM to model a well-known process.

13 Septembre – Lausanne – PMO cuisine moléculaire : Déstructure et structure

11 Juil

LogoSMPComme en cuisine moléculaire, le PMO évolue dans un milieu en perpétuelle mutation entre structure et déstructure.

Il propose souvent de nouveaux goûts qui peuvent laisser des sensations gustatives plaisantes et parfois amères…

En effet, le PMO, notamment au sein de grande entreprise publique, évolue dans un environnement complexe, politisé au possible, avec des parties prenantes pas toujours clairement identifiées et des chefs de projet parfois professionnels et surtout « miliciens »…

cookingSoirée organisée par la SMP en partenariat avec le PMO Romand

C’est ce que certains des membres du PMO Romand vont vous exposer à travers une expérience « culinaire » d’une conférence collaborative d’exception !

Au cours de cette soirée vous allez assister à une conférence collaborative qui sera animée par plusieurs intervenants sous forme d’alternance de mini-conférence (type TEDx) et de discussions avec les intervenants et le public.

Les intervenants sont tous issus du PMO Romand:

  • David Bandon (HUG)
  • Eric Deladoëy (TPG)
  • Cyrille Ghiste (CHUV)
  • Nadim Krim (Etat de Genève)
  • Santino Pepe (CHUV)
  • Christelle Rey (OFS)

June 14 – Brussels – PRINCE2 and Agile Evening Workshop

31 Mai

Hold your seat for this evening workshop to understand that combining PRINCE2 with Agile is not just about giving PRINCE2 an agile capability!

QRP International France

Partenaire de DantotsuPM

PRINCE2 is widely regarded as a common standard which enables projects in the public or private sector to be executed with a common understanding of the processes and terminology used, while Agile continues to take the project management world by storm: No longer confined to software development, Agile approaches have become popular with a wide variety of organisations that need to be more flexible andresponsive to deal effectively with the ever-increasing pace of change.

While it is true that these are two different PM approaches, it is also vital for companies to understand that combining PRINCE2 with Agile is not just about giving PRINCE2 an agile capability. It is much more important than that. It allows an organization to go about creating a robust and fully scalable agile capability in a controlled way. PRINCE2 should not be seen as a blocker to agile; in fact, it is quite the opposite – it is an enabler, allowing agile to happen in a disciplined manner.

Our FREE workshops will help you learning more about the method and how your organization can benefit from using PRINCE2 and Agile: these sessions will present the methods by providing a clear view of their benefits and how they can be used to increase the success of your projects.

workshop 2During these workshops, facilitated by a certified trainer, participants are given the opportunity to apply the basics of the method and finally ask any questions.

This EVENING format has been developed to meet your needs to have a learning moment after working hours: share knowledge, ask questions and start a dialogue amongst peers!

14 Juin – Lausanne – comment augmenter l’intelligence émotionnelle de vos équipes ?

30 Mai

Avec qui travaillez-vous ou comment augmenter l’intelligence émotionnelle de vos équipes ?

LogoSMPVous avez de la peine à motiver vos équipes ou plutôt de la peine à comprendre leur fonctionnement ?

Vous avez de la difficulté à identifier les différentes personnalités des parties prenantes de vos projets afin de les cerner et puis de les convaincre ?

« Connais-toi toi-même et tu connaîtras l’univers et les Dieux ».

Patrick de Sépibus

Patrick de Sépibus

C’est le plus ancien des trois préceptes qui étaient gravés à l’entrée du temple de Delphes. Déjà depuis des millénaires l’être humain est conscient de l’importance de se connaître.

Pourtant, vous connaissez-vous vraiment ? Comprenez-vous pourquoi vous réagissez de telle ou telle autre façon face aux différentes situations ? Et surtout, comprenez-vous le fonctionnement des personnes avec qui vous devez ou voulez travailler ?

Lors de cette soirée débat vous apprendrez une méthode simple pour comprendre rapidement le fonctionnement des autres :

  • Vous découvrirez quel fonctionnement type vous utilisez en priorité
  • Vous apprendrez à découvrir le fonctionnement type d’une autre personne
  • Et utiliserez les 3 étapes indispensables pour améliorer l’efficacité individuelle et collective.

Lors de cette présentation organisée par SMP, Société Suisse de Management de Projet,  Patrick de Sépibus utilisera et partagera des méthodes d’apprentissage accéléré qui vous permettront d’intégrer l’information donnée rapidement et efficacement.
