Location: Online Webinar
Date: July 9, 2019
Time: 7:00pm - 8:00pm
1 PDU - Technical Project Management
The projects you lead for your company are often multifunctional and engage a wide variety of stakeholders. Rigorous planning is vital to your organization’s ability to oversee project execution and success. But project planning often tends to be done piecemeal or not at all, many times leading to missing and/or incomplete information and correspondingly poor results. Effective planning meetings will help you not only develop and use key artifacts, they will also strengthen and motivate your team. As a project or program manager, you can help drive effectiveness of all your projects if your meetings are well-run, to-the-point, yield clear direction and are results-oriented.
This session, based on our book, How to Facilitate Productive Project Planning Meetings, will assist you in your projects by providing valuable tips and ideas. Using the concept of a large multi-day planning meeting, we’ll discuss how to set up and facilitate such a meeting both in person and in virtual environments. Since those same techniques also apply to smaller meetings, we’ll also discuss, status and lessons learned meetings. We’ll also briefly discuss Agile and the similarity of scaled Agile to more traditional planning sessions.
