Organizations that adopt projects as a mean to achieving change and delivering results often find it difficult to prioritize projects and to make best use of their resources; additionally, many recent surveys have demonstrated that project backlog is a major issue in organizations.  Portfolio management is a management approach that aims to align project efforts with the corporate strategy and optimize the efficient use of resources throughout the organization. This seminar focuses on three major pillars of Portfolio Management:
  • Prioritization of projects and other activities, based on their contribution to organizational benefits and their achievability
  • Allocation and prioritizing of resources between those projects and activities that have been chosen so that they can deliver the expected benefits
  • Monitoring and Controlling of the components of your Portfolio based on the construction and evolution of a Consolidated Risk Profile. 
This seminar is designed for experienced project managers, portfolio managers, chief project officers, project directors and senior managers who need to assign resources to projects to deliver corporate strategies.

POST-CONGRESS EVENT: SeminarsWorld | First Steps Toward Agility: Incorporating Agile Practices in a Waterfall Environment (Day 1 of 2) [Additional registration & fee required]
**Pre-registration is required to attend PMI SeminarsWorld and not included in EMEA Congress registration fee** 
Click here to register for PMI SeminarsWorld in Berlin – space is limited!
 
Both traditional (Waterfall) methodology and Agile methodology have pros and cons and can be effective ways to structure a project. For teams that are not practicing Agile, there are still Agile practices that can benefit them. Daily standups, retrospectives, and many other key Agile practices and ceremonies can benefit even a Waterfall team. For many, the most arduous part of transitioning to Agile in a waterfall environment happens at the beginning—in the uncertainty of how to put the initiative into motion.
 
In this seminar, strategies and best practices to begin incorporating Agile practices are revealed. Real-world experiences working with existing project teams to begin incorporating Agile practices and ceremonies are shared. By initiating practices, teams start to understand Agile principles and mindset and become better prepared to take the next steps on their Agile journey. Specific Agile practices, and how to adapt each one to a traditional environment, are covered.

POST-CONGRESS EVENT: SeminarsWorld | Managing Difficult Stakeholders (Day 1 of 2) [Additional registration & fee required]
**Pre-registration is required to attend PMI SeminarsWorld and not included in EMEA Congress registration fee** 
Click here to register for PMI SeminarsWorld in Berlin – space is limited!
 
Managing the daily challenges of a project to complete objectives and meet client expectations is a challenge regardless of project size and complexity. Dealing with changing, and seemingly unreasonable, demands and requirements of the client often tests the ability of the project manager and project team to remain focused on the project deliverables. Project managers and teams must develop skills and techniques that will assist them in maintaining an effective working relationship with their clients and recognize behavior or situations that may lead to potential conflict, dissatisfaction or strained working relationships with clients. This program focuses on the importance of establishing a collaborative environment, setting and managing expectations, and dealing with clients who create difficult working environments.
 
The program is designed for project managers, project leaders, and managers who have direct contact with demanding clients and must establish effective working relationships, obtain requirements, negotiate changes, and manage client interfaces effectively. It is a highly interactive and enjoyable session.
Course Description: Project Managers and Program managers encounter many issues in the pursuit of successful completion of objectives. Among the challenges is the possibility of working with stakeholders whose personalities and behaviors may create situations that are difficult to manage or cause significant conflict. In this seminar learn how to identify the characteristics and tactics of difficult stakeholders whether they are clients, suppliers, co-workers, or employees and develop strategies for creating a more productive work environment through emotional intelligence.

POST-CONGRESS EVENT: SeminarsWorld | Managing the DANCE - Leading Projects / Programs in a Complex World (Day 1 of 2) [Additional registration & fee required]
**Pre-registration is required to attend PMI SeminarsWorld and not included in EMEA Congress registration fee** 
Click here to register for PMI SeminarsWorld in Berlin – space is limited!
 
Have you ever wondered why, no matter what you do, some projects, programs or strategic initiatives are out of control and hard to manage? You work hard to carefully manage, but the more you try to control the harder it gets? What you have is a problem managing the DANCE - Dynamic, Ambiguous, Non-linear, Complex and Emergent and unpredictable nature of some projects. This seminar will highlight the reality of today’s disruptive and complex project environment and challenge the existing beliefs of how we deal with it.
 
In today’s projects and programs of any size, there is a lot of uncertainty and it is challenging to identify the multitude of variables to be managed, let alone to anticipate how they might interact to create unexpected challenges. Managing these projects and strategic initiatives requires a new way of thinking and next generation agility. This seminar provides new lenses and different perspective to deal with today’s uncertain project environment.  You will learn how to assess complexity and uncertainty and apply unconventional techniques to deal with it. Apply timely leadership insights and practical ideas, and learn to dance on the edge of chaos.

POST-CONGRESS EVENT: SeminarsWorld | The Project Coach: How to Stretch and Develop Others While Getting the Work Done (Day 1 of 2) [Additional registration & fee required]
**Pre-registration is required to attend PMI SeminarsWorld and not included in EMEA Congress registration fee** 
Click here to register for PMI SeminarsWorld in Berlin – space is limited!
 
Business coaching has evolved from fad to fundamental. Having the ability to “coach and develop others” is a necessary skill for all project managers. However, with so much to do and so little guidance, how do project managers successfully stretch and develop others while getting the work done?
 
Successful coaching is based on asking rather than telling, on challenging rather than giving directions and by holding a person accountable for results.
