Happy International Project Managers Day! Attend our upcoming IT Project/Program Management SIG

Thursday, 03 Nov 2016

The ACS Victoria IT Project/Program Management SIG is for practitioners interested in the successful delivery of ICT Project and Program Management. These sessions are interactive and provide an avenue for practitioners to meet and share information, that extends the methodologies.

As the last two sessions for 2016 have been combined, we will be hearing from two speakers this month on two separate topics.

Risk and Issue Management
Presented by Michael Cornelius - CIO, Department of Justice Victoria

In this session, Michael will be discussing the criticality of Risk and Issue Management for projects, programs and portfolios and share with us how the transparency of risks and issues has influenced successful delivery. Throughout this session, Michael will also provide us with insights regarding the communication of risks and issues and management of stakeholder expectations.

Progress Reporting, Monitoring, Warning Signs
Presented by Cameron Mills - Emvisage

Almost all organisations we meet say the same thing when it comes to delivery of their programs and portfolios of work. They want better visibility. They want consistency. They want to be getting the best return from every dollar invested in projects. The first step for most organisations is getting the 'one list', or centralised view across all projects and programs. With this visibility, organisations can understand progress, take early corrective action when warning signs present and proactively communicate this with business stakeholders. Achieving just this, can significantly change perceptions and outcomes within a short time frame. These benefits are well established, however the path to get there is not always so clear. Or more so, Cameron believes the path can be unnecessarily complex.  This discussion will focus on a Lean approach to achieving this visibility, the key results drivers across people, rhythms and information.
