Risk Management is one of the most challenging skills to master for a project manager.  “Project Risk Management includes the processes of conducting risk management planning, identification, analysis, response planning and controlling risk on a project. The objectives of project risk management are to increase the likelihood an impact of positive event and decrease the likelihood and impact of negative events in the project.” PMBOK® 5th edition In this webinar, we will address effective risk management to ensure you are prepared to face the most common risks: Intrinsic Schedule Flaw Specification Breakdown Scope Creep Personnel Loss Productivity Variance Quantitative risk analysis is a foundation of traditional project management, and qualitative risk analysis is the approach preferred by more Agile projects.

90 Days Access Duration: 5 modules totaling 70 minutes of instruction plus a 16 question knowledge check. Eligible for 1,5 PDUs or 1.5 Agile Contact Hours for the PMI-ACP Application Topic description: Is your organization considering moving to Agile but they are not ready to implement the extreme organizational changes as required by Scrum? Are you happy with the quality of your development, but you just need to deliver your products more frequently? If you said yes to either of these questions, then you should consider learning more about Kanban. Kanban is an evolutionary (not revolutionary) approach to becoming more Agile. Some of the key practices of Agile that support this approach are as follows: Focus on small, incremental changes Keep those processes that are working Respect the existing roles, processes and titles Kanban for software development and project management is a Lean approach. Kanban was originally developed to remove waste from manufacturing processes. This same approach is being used in software development to eliminate waste, improve productivity and support continuous delivery of value driven software to your customer. Kanban uses some simple techniques of Kanban boards where you can see product progress as at glance, work-in-progress (WIP) limits to manage your workflow and identify and remove bottlenecks, and lastly it provides transparency into how efficient your existing processes are by capturing cycles times for every requirement created by your customer. The benefit of Kanban is that it provides complete transparency into your product lifecycle. This allows you to continuously improve and focus on only those steps in your process that are value-driven while at the same time introducing organizational change in a deliberate and incremental approach. Why should you Attend: Every organization is looking for ways to increase project success and become more competitive in their marketplace. Agile project management approaches have been proven to meet those objectives. Many organizations are struggling with Scrum and other extreme Agile implementations, but are finding that Kanban is meeting less resistance. Your organization needs leaders who are knowledgeable on these Agile approaches and can become part of the solution needed to improve project success. This webinar will address the key success factors of implementing Kanban and help you determine which Agile approach is right for your organization.
