“We were successful with our ERP replacement initiative due, in part, to your presentations on running successful projects. In particular, the presentation Cover Oregon, What Would You Do? opened my eyes to create an atmosphere of accountability, need to continually define and adjust for achievable scope, and manage the team to a “forced march” toward completion with a focus on “what can be done” and not trying to do everything. Thank you.”

  • Filling Execution Gaps – The Six Deadly Holes that Prevent Project Success Mon. 11 Sep, 2017 (5:15 pm - 6:15 pm) Association Keynotes Filling Execution Gaps – The Six Deadly Holes that Prevent Project Success Registration Informoation on the Mt Baker PMI Website. Check-In / Networking Time: 5:15 p.m. – 5:45 p.m. Program 1 (5:45 p.m. – 6:45 p.m.) Executives define vision, strategy, and goals to advance the business. Projects enable companies to meet those goals. Between strategy and projects there is a lot of work to be done—work that lays the foundation for the projects’ success. Through experience and research, six common gaps exist in organizations that inhibit project success. Without filling these gaps, projects struggle and fail to deliver value to their end users, goals are missed, and businesses fail to succeed. Project managers, like you, must help build value-driven organizations that are seasoned yet adaptive, structured yet agile, pragmatic yet innovative. Understanding of the core issues causing these gaps and how they are filled at other companies—gives you the tools for success. (1 PDU – Leadership) Panel Discussion Program 2 (7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.) (1 PDU – Leadership) Location: Hampton Inn (Bellingham Airport) – Executive Board Room (1st floor, just past the lobby) 3985 Bennett Drive, Bellingham (360) 676-7700
  • PMI Willamette Valley: Professional Development Conference 2015 Fri. 16 Oct, 2015 (All day) Conference Keynote PMI Willamette Valley's biggest event of the year, the 2015 Professional Development Conference. The theme for this year is Quantum Change: Bringing it to the Next Level, (or small changes that can make a big difference – like the one degree change in temperature that turns boiling water into steam). Building on past successes we can now get economies of scale and have made some changes to bring this year’s Conference to an entirely new level!  PMI WV will be doing breakout sessions giving you more choice about what subject matter will be most valuable to you or get you the right mix of PDU’s. There is no doubt that making the right connections is one of those things that can help you bring it to the next level. The PDC’s opening keynote speaker KL Wells of Networking Power will coach us in strategic networking methods which she has pioneered. This will provide us all a powerful framework for making those vital connections with other professionals at the Conference and during the reception in the evening. Morning breakout sessions will include Scaling Agile, An Exploration of Online Collaboration Tools, and Innovative Risk Analysis. Todd Williams who gave us an excellent keynote last year will again be our lunch keynote speaker. This year his presentation is on People vs. Process with a focus on leadership and “what will take your career from water to steam.” Afternoon breakout sessions will include Data Science & Analytics for Project Managers, Change Management and more on Team Collaboration. Finally, executive leadership coach and strategic planning consultant Jennifer Webster, PhD will help us all bring our leadership skills to the next level as our closing keynote speaker.

It provides the comfort of consistency, accuracy, and conformance.  Add people, however—people with personality, prejudice, and protest—and processes fall short.  To deal with the realities of business, we need a toolbox of techniques for managing and leading people while balancing the competing interests of stakeholders who simply want consistently successful results.  This seminar starts by looking at the lynch pin of business—process—why it is important, when it is an appropriate solution, and how its overuse generates failure.  It provides insight into some of the quirks inherent in people by using estimation processes to expose our personal biases that defeat process.  The presentation culminates with a lesson and discussion on leading and incentivizing people as a replacement for layering on process, which only increase bureaucracy.
  • PMI Upstate New York: Vision to Value: Strategically Meeting Business Needs Thu. 17 Sep, 2015 (5:30 am - 9:30 am) Classes PMI Upstate New York Special Event!

Business turns vision into value. It still takes a team of executives, stakeholders, project managers, and individual contributors to drive the projects that build the capabilities transforming businesses. Ergo, projects are the enablers for turning vision into value.  Too often, however, project managers and their stakeholders lack the visibility into how their project’s fit into the business’ grand vision.  Think how wonderfully your business would run if everyone from the C-Suite to the feet on the street understood how to maintain focus on executing business strategies. This workshop will help leaders: •                Understand what is valuable for your organization.•                Improve communication.•                Focus their energies and your resources on corporate goals.Organizations the world over use balanced scorecard to define their strategic goals. However, balanced scorecard only works if its information is disseminated throughout the organization.  This workshop helps, executive sponsors, PMO managers, project managers, and project teams understand why and how a strategy is defined, the use of activity and strategy maps, and how they apply to the organization’s projects.This short two-hour session will give you:•                A basic understanding of Balanced Scorecard.•                The meaning and usefulness of balanced scorecard.•                An understanding the three types of projects—strategic, compliance, and operational effectiveness.•                The key attributes to look for on a project to ensure it is aligned with the corporate strategy.For those who can stay an extra two hours (four hours total) you will gain:•                Development and use of activity diagrams.•                Development of strategy maps.•                An understanding of cross organization You can get more information about this event by contacting us directly or visiting the PMI Upstate New York Chapter.
  • PMI Upstate New York: People or Process: Which Has the Greater Effect on Project Success Wed. 16 Sep, 2015 (2:30 pm - 5:30 pm) Association Keynotes PMI Upstate New York Dinner Meeting Join us while we are in New York while we give a dinner meeting presentation, or join us the following day for a special follow workshop. Attitude adjustment will begin at 5:30 pm with dinner at 6:00 pm, followed by the program starting promptly at 7:00 pm and adjourning by 8:00 pm.  Dinner includes Caesar Salad, Rolls, Coffee, & Dessert (Vanilla Bean ice cream topped with fresh strawberries, and fresh whipped cream) with Choice of Entree  1. Chicken : Francaise  2. Fish: Herb basted fresh fillet of Atlantic salmon with a chive buerre blanc  3. Beef: Sirloin cacciatore with rice  4. Vegetable Provence, sautéed with herbs de Provence and topped with grilled, marinated tofu, brown rice   About our presentation: People or Process: Which Has the Greater Effect on Project Success  People or Process, as the name implies, looks directly at the role of people versus process in a project's success or failure. Process is a needed component of any project, but does not obviate the need to work with people. A project manager's ability to not only manage, but lead and inspire is often the dividing line between an initiative's success and failure. Unfortunately, the trend over the last fifteen years has been to focus on process and reduce project management to a checklist of tasks. This has created a culture that diminishes the value of a project manager with people skills.  By the end of this presentation, attendees will understand the importance of balancing people and process, where to focus their efforts, and tips on inspiring people to excel at their jobs. You can get more information about this event by contacting us directly or visiting the PMI Upstate New York Chapter.
