In the past decade, several enterprises have focused on improving both technology and work processes in order to enhance their efficiency. However, greater success has been reached by those having developed an important element within their organization: leadership.
Engaging leaders are an inspiration to others thanks to their authenticity, commitment to people and passion for work.
Inspired from a book by Mary and Tom Poppendieck, this presentation is an adaptation of the Lean Approach based on the Toyota Production System in the IT domain.
Once the 7 Lean Software Development principles are revisited, 24 imaged viewpoints will provide a different approach to dealing with possible problems encountered in the field of IT.
This presentation will answer your questions about negotiation:
- What does the term negotiation mean?
- Is it a power relationship or collaboration?
- Is the other one my friend or foe?
- What outcomes are we seeking?
- At what cost?
- What about our relationship?
As a project manager, you are all familiar with the different techniques and tools of project management. You have also been trained on the management of individuals and the characteristics of different personalities and approaches to follow for best results. You have probably attended training sessions on conflict management and negotiation as well. Your experience translates as proof of this knowledge and lessons learned over time.
The "Project management, what am I getting into" presentation will bring you a different view of project management based on the approach where the team becomes the project manager's main focus. The facilitator will give you an overview of the context in which a project manager evolves as well as the resources he manages and the work environment where these work. A certain focus will be on the type of team and its development cycle. In conclusion, the facilitator will offer personal business advice to develop a sense of ownership in order to bring the team to excel.
All of this seen from the world according to "Paquet"!
The issue behind project success is often the project manager's ability to positively influence and motivate project team members, since his role is not to manage deliverables but rather the resources that will produce them. This influence is of the utmost importance in the project context along with the way leadership qualities can be improved.
Furthermore, by merely communicating, the project manager can also feel out the mood, motivation and expectations of the entire team. In a nut shell, the human aspect of project management plays a major role in the project manager's work.
Do you need to improve the performance of your projects? Do you want to increase project success probability? Do you wish to standardize project management in your organization? Do you feel that your organization is monitoring the progress of its large-scope projects? Do you need to provide Top management with a consolidated and integrated vision of your projects?
If at least one of these concerns sounds familiar, your organization most likely needs to set up a project management unit.
The M720-3 Project Initiation and Planning learning event is primarily concerned with what the Project Manager's responsibilities are in relation to planning and, at a fundamental level, in relation to estimating. The M725-3 Detailed Project Planning and Estimating learning event is intended to build upon this and treat both of these areas in greater detail by concentrating on how a Project Manager can actually perform their role. The course is based around examples that each attendee is expected to work through and discuss.
Anyone who generally takes a project management or team leadership role - or expects to in the near future - should take this course. Designed to challenge both the experienced project manager and those new to the role, the course covers the skills, techniques, deliverables, and activities recommended at the beginning of a project. Project success is planned from the start!

AGILE software development is a group of software development methodologies based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions evolve through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams. It promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development and delivery, a time-boxed iterative approach, and encourages rapid and flexible response to change. It is a conceptual framework that promotes foreseen interactions throughout the development cycle. The Agile Manifesto introduced the term in 2001.
Scrum is one of the methods based on the AGILE software development approach. It is an iterative, incremental framework for project management often seen in AGILE software development type of software engineering. Although the Scrum approach was originally suggested for managing product development projects, its use has focused on the management of software development projects, and it can be used to run software maintenance teams or as a general project/program management approach.

Change management provides a structure and tools to ensure that the human aspect is taken into consideration when implementing changes in a project or within an organization. The primary objective of change management is to ensure that changes are made:
• by as many people as possible;
• as fast as possible;
• most effectively.
The success of a project is linked to the resilience of the team, that is, its ability to adjust quickly to change and to stay on course. Approaches and activities in the field of change management are direct answers in the quest for this ability.
This training event offers approaches and techniques to identify the impacts and consequences of a change on the project team, as well as tools to identify and implement targeted actions, and this, in order to better reach the objectives of change management.

Agile approaches to software development promise many advantages: shorter schedules, more productive teams, products that better meet customer expectations, higher quality, and more. In this talk, Mike will explain how agile teams achieve these goals by avoiding the seven deadly sins of project management. Covered will be sins such as gluttony, sloth, lust, opaqueness, and more. Giving in to one of these temptations can result in a failed or canceled project.
Have you ever written what you thought was a clear, concise email only to have others interpret it quite differently? Just as traditional body language is crucial for getting your spoken message across, virtual body language can make or break written communications.
Agile Project Planning requires a team to do the tasks from a prioritized list, break the tasks into small ones and then execute each iteration within the estimated time frame.
A key distinction between Agile Project Planning and the traditional or standard project planning is that Agile Project Planning is expected to be collaborative in nature and wider in scope as the entire team partakes in planning and scheduling.
As changes are continuously increasing, managers give in to the weight of overwhelming emotions. Panicked and unable to overcome their own fear, they struggle to manage those of their employees.
How can that rapidly learn to manage their emotions and offer the best of themselves?

- Switch from active communication to passive communication
- Cancel your meetings

The two ADKAR tutorials presented below were first released in early 2007 leading up to the release of Jeff Hiatt's book ADKAR: a model for change in business, government and our community - a complete description of the model. The tutorials presented here are:
- The Essence of ADKAR: a model for individual change - a short article written by Jeff Hiatt focusing on the individual as the unit of change and ADKAR as a tool for describing individual success
- Why you need an individual change model - this tutorial addresses the individual more generally, covering the role of an individual model, the risks of not having an individual model and applications of an individual model for change
During the summer of 2009, Prosci will be releasing a number of "Five tips" tutorials. These tutorials will provide simple, actionable steps to improving change management application. Each tutorial will focus on a particular element of change management, including:
- Five tips for: Succeeding in change management
- Five tips for: Sizing your change management efforts
- Five tips for: Better communications
- Five tips for: Managing resistance
The first "Five tips" tutorial looks at being successful in change management. The tips come directly from practitioner experience and benchmarking data from Prosci's six benchmarking studies conducted over the last 12 years (Note: the 2009 edition of Best Practices in Change Management will be released this summer).
The discipline of project management has a set of recognized tools that support its execution - project charter, statement of work, work breakdown structure, schedule, etc. Similarly, change management has a set of tools that support the "people side" of change - regardless of the change that is being introduced.
While some in your organization might view change management as "just communication" or "just training", Prosci's research has shown that change management is most effective when it is a holistic set of tools aimed at supporting individuals though changes to how they do their jobs.
Prosci's change management methodology is based on research with over 1600 participants over the last ten years. What is unique about the methodology is that it comes from real project leaders and teams reflecting on what worked, what did not and what they would do differently on their next projects. At its core, Prosci's methodology is the collective lessons learned by those introducing change across the globe. Based on this research, Prosci's goal has been to develop a methodology that is holistic and at the same time easy to use. The resulting process, tools and assessments have been developed with one goal in mind: that you can put them to use on your projects, building your (and your organization's) own internal change management skill set.
