5a4e4587649ba-mike-marco-pictureRisk Severity Analysis

Speaker: Mike Marco, MBA, SAFe-SPC4, AE, CSP, PMP, PME, PMI-ACP, CSM

Why do projects fail? Because we made them fail. Not addressing the risks environment of your project will create a hostile environment for you, your team members and project output itself. Project managers need to be more proactive, prevent instead of correct, issues that would occur throughout project life cycle.

This presentation covers the practical and theoretical aspects of the "risk project management." and is focused toward understanding the tools and techniques that project manager needs to use while managing the project risk environment throughout the project life cycle.

2018 April Meeting

PerzelThe Dark Arts of Project Management: Influence and Politics

Speaker: Joe Perzel

Successful journey from start to finish of a project is not linear, clean, forecastable or easy. Your interest is to deliver the project on time, on budget with a smile on everyone’s face, but others have conflicting interests.  

Armed with your System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and a planning tool of your choice, you think you are set to go. Then the plan that you have worked so hard to perfect shows a flaw, falls behind schedule or budget, is amended or completely thrown out altogether. How do you minimize these occurrences and provide the best chance to survive the project intact?

This presentation will start with the Top 10 Keys to Success which include Communicate, Communicate, Communicate; Managing Change and Expectations; Pace, Perfection and Price – pick 3? We will then discuss how to become a Master Magician covering topics such as Winning at Politics; Control outcomes through Influence; Communicate & Motivate and why you need to Market the Project.

PMI-New Transformational Thought Leadership Seminar -- November 15, 2017

PMI-NEW presents an afternoon with Scott Carbonara, aka, the Leadership Therapist, who served as chief-of-staff of a multi-billion-dollar corporation--overseeing teams that managed many large-scale projects. Today, he consults on change management through large technology implementations and other transitions—and he has spoken and trained dozens of PMI groups across the country. His focus is not on the technical aspects of Project Management, but rather on the interpersonal skills that are necessary to turn good PM into a great one. And the application of those skills can make or break project success. Joining Scott will be Albert Selker, a former senior executive/ executive business lead (sponsor) overseeing multi-million-dollar projects.

You won't want to miss this half-day event being held at beautiful SentryWorld in Stevens Point, WI. Look for more information soon on the topics Scott will be addressing!

$250 Million Failure: What Would You Do?

Todd C. Williams, PMP 

Nothing starts your day worse than waking up to a CNN News crew on your front porch. That is what happened with Cover Oregon (Oregon’s failed Affordable Care Act Insurance Exchange implementation). Now, with multiple lawsuits filed, only time will tell who the real losers are. One thing is for sure—there will be no winners. With all the contracts, audit reports, and court documents in the public domain, there is no better time to learn.
