Procept Launches New eLearning Course: Managing Large Project Teams - Modern Lessons from the Giza Pyramid Project (20 PDUs)

  • By: pcadmin on 02 Apr 2015

Procept Associates and its partner GenXus Corporation are pleased to announce the release of a new self-directed online e-learning course called "Managing Large Project Teams: Modern Lessons from the Giza Pyramid Project." Developed by Dr. Mark Kozak-Holland, a world-renowned author, speaker, and researcher who investigates historical projects to extract lessons learned that can be applied in today's business scenarios.

During this course, participants will take on the role of the project manager for the construction of the Giza Pyramid. People commonly believe this project was delivered with a workforce made up primarily of slaves controlled through threats and violence; however, the latest archaeological research proves this to be not true. While some slaves were undoubtedly used, the bulk of the workforce was made up of craftsmen, farmers, and other skilled workers who were managed using rewards and other motivation techniques. Using the latest available archaeological evidence, the course puts learners into project simulations where they must make a complex series of decisions that could mean the difference between life and death for the workers and that illustrate key techniques in managing large workforces on complex projects that can be applied in modern projects..

FREE EVENT: Managing Strategic Programs: Discovering the Structural and Governance Differences Between Projects and Strategic Programs

  • By: Alana Hughes on 27 Mar 2015

Join us on April 27th from 10:00am - noon in Toronto for a free session on managing strategic programs led by Rajiv Khanna.

In the world of management, people use the terms project and program freely, many without a solid understanding of the differences between the two. Project management and program management are distinct frameworks, each with its own practices. Using the wrong framework to manage a new initiative could mean the difference between success and failure.

Join UK-based expert Rajiv Khanna in this 2-hour seminar as he brings his deep expertise on project and program management to Canada. During this session, participants will:

  • Identify the key differences between portfolios, programs, and projects
  • Identify the differences between outputs, outcomes, and benefits
  • Discuss the different types of programs
  • Discuss the key roles and responsibilities of program and project management teams
  • Discuss the key elements an organization must have in place in order to increase its chances of project and program success and minimize the level of risk

 

 

WEBINAR: Governance of Projects, or is it Project Governance?

  • By: Alana Hughes on 18 Mar 2015

Join us on April 15th from 8:00-9:00pm for a webinar on project governance led by Darya Duma.

Most organizations have strong corporate governance, but often those governance policies and procedures do not apply to projects or at the very least prove to be a poor fit in matrix organizations. Project governance provides the link between the project manager and the executive management of the organization. All the project management processes in the world cannot help if your project does not have the right framework for executive involvement, decision-making and risk management. In this short talk, we will discuss the essential principles of governance for projects, programs and portfolios.

As a member of ISO/TC258 on projects, programs and portfolios, Darya has shared thoughts on this topic with some of the leading minds in project management on the international stage. She will discuss the most recent views as proposed in international standards and how those principles translated to application in a recent case study.

At this session, participants will:

  • Develop a definition for governance of projects, programs and portfolios for their environment
  • Discuss recent developments in international standards with respect to governance of projects
  • See how the principles of governance translate to a live environment
