October 2018 Dinner Meeting – Project Management Trends

Information on the Tuesday, October 9, 2018 Dinner Meeting has been posted:

Venue: Conference Center at the Maritime Institute

Program: Project Management Trends
Throughout the history of the practice of project management, we have been subject to a plethora of techniques and practices that, while fashionable at the time, became obsolete very quickly. For several years many saw Agile as one of those short-term quick-fix ideas that would soon be remembered as nothing more than a buzzword. By now most of us realize that hasn’t happened! Agile has become one of several trends that are changing the way we accomplish our goals. In this brief presentation, Lisa and Dave will look at some of the current trends that are shaping our industry, and then you can decide…fashion or fundamental?

Tutorial: The Engagement Matrix©
Stakeholder engagement is at the forefront of attention in the world of project management. The Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide, Sixth Edition) lists stakeholder engagement as a key consideration in the Project Quality Management section.
Stakeholder engagement is also one of the keys to successful implementation of TQM quality systems. Whether you are implementing LSS, ISO, CMMI or other quality control or assurance protocols, mutually beneficial relationships between departments, organizations, suppliers and customers will be a critical success factor.
The Engagement Matrix© is a non-authoritarian tool for continuously managing performance. Encouraging a PDCA-style approach to continuous appraisal, the tool helps to simplify the performance management process and facilitates a proactive response to engage all stakeholders.
