6 Avril – Bern #PMI® – Critical success factors for successful project management in public industries

17 Mar

How do public-sector projects differ from projects in other sectors and what are the ways of identifying the common root causes of failure?

Global trends, such as tech breakthroughs, and demographic and social changes, are forcing both private and public organisations to transform to survive and this in a highly dynamic and competitive environment. This has prompted the public sector to invest billions every year in projects and programmes to improve public services and renew infrastructure.

Despite this huge investment, many of these transformation initiatives are facing challenges and failing to meet the desired objectives in terms of benefits achieved or delivery to budget and schedule − or both. Challenging public transformations often make the headlines, in Switzerland too. Prominent examples include the cancellation of the Insieme IT project for the Federal Tax Administration, and the new Land Forces Command Info System for the Swiss armed forces.

You might get the impression that public-sector projects are more likely to struggle than those in other industries.

Can this be? What are the keys to success in public-sector projects?

In this interactive presentation you will find out about the key challenges faced in public-sector projects, how such projects differ from projects in other sectors, and ways of identifying the common root causes of failure. You will also get insights into the key lessons learned from our experience, the main areas to focus on to ensure successful project delivery in the public sector and what other industries can learn from public projects.

15 Avril – Zürich #PMI® – From Building Phones to Dancing Bollywood !

16 Mar

“A goal is a dream with a deadline.”

What might be in common between building phones for Samsung, organizing a cultural festival in Zurich, and bringing solar lighting to un-electrified villages worldwide?

They are all the result of a strategic intent, deployed by a team of people aligned in their goals, under the constant constraints of resources and time.

What might be the mission critical factors that translate into the make or break of these projects?

Certainly customer-centricity and clarity on the objectives of the task at hand. Equally importantly though, soft factors such as people skills and cultural sensitivity contribute to the efficiency of the process and the chances of executing the project successfully.

And what might the pitfalls be?

Come and listen to Arun Amirtham, who managed complex projects at Philips Semiconductors to deliver cutting-edge HW/SW technology platforms for Samsung’s mobile division in Korea, organized cultural festivals at Zurich HB, and is currently rolling out an ambitious project to bring solar lighting to the un-electrified millions around the globe.

The SALT & PEPPER framework for execution he has distilled from his successes and failures may provide practical insights to blend with PM theory to achieve ground-breaking results you never thought possible!

Workplace-related stress is a growing concern.

People are dealing with ever-increasing workloads, a decreasing workforce, and a climate of rapid change.

Employees are being asked to do more than ever before in less time for less money and to take more responsibilities and decisions. Project Managers are very exposed in that sense!

The event will be particularly focused on how to develop soft-skills to avoid personal damages.

21 March – Basel #PMI® – Cultivating Your Creative Confidence

23 Fév

7 habits of Potential Creative Leaders

Creativity is not limited to art or science. We are all inherently creative.

Keynote speaker: Ms. Eli Fumoto

Keynote speaker: Ms. Eli Fumoto

Yet, creativity is the least exploited human resources and it is desperately demanded in all sectors, business, education and public administration to mention just few. Moreover, creativity is an essential quality of 21st century leadership to survive and thrive individually and collectively.

There has been an increasing number of books about ’how to be creative’. However, what is most important is not the how-to technics but a mindset to believe in one’s creative potential – creative confidence.

Without that self-belief, creativity cannot be nurtured. Creativity is like a muscle, we first need to recognize it, use it and develop it in a daily bases.

Toward the end of the presentation, Ms. Fumoto will share examples of creative habits that not only develop your creative muscle but also make your daily life more enjoyable.

21 March – Zurich #PMI® – How to rescue a troubled project

23 Fév

Comment venir au secours d’un projet en danger ? Session en Anglais du PMI Switzerland.

Change is omnipresent, and both private businesses and public organisations have to transform successfully to survive in a highly dynamic and competitive environment.

The problem is that 75% of transformation projects fail to meet the intended objectives in terms of benefits achieved, timing, or both.

What are the reasons for this alarming figure? Could these projects (or at least some of them) have been rescued from failure?

exclamation-road-sign-danger

75% of transformation projects fail to meet the intended objectives !

This interactive presentation draws on experience gained from more than 40 projects to give you insights into how to identify the symptoms and main root causes of failure within complex projects.

You will find out how to identify the early warning signs and recurring risk areas in complex projects, and pinpoint when to take action based on an in-depth analysis of the main root causes. We will also be explaining how to define the right remediation actions and implement and monitor them properly to get your project back on track.

14 Février – Lausanne – La protection des données personnelles : Un défi pour le chef de projet ?

31 Jan

Les enjeux sont importants car corriger a posteriori un système qui serait non conforme est une véritable gageure !

Cyber criminalitéDisons-le clairement, traiter les données personnelles de manière conforme dans tout nouveau projet peut se révéler être un défi pour le chef de projet. Un défi, car les obligations légales existent en ce domaine, mais les formations intégrant cet aspect sont encore rares.

Hors, les corrections après coup sont très coûteux en temps, en énergie et en argent.

Isabelle Dubois
