Maria Barbero - "Emerging Project Management Tools: State of the art 2016"

We expect that in the future project managers will have the opportunity to set up new configurations of their PMISs integrating several Emerging Project Management Tools or eventually blending them with traditional ones. This is the main finding we expect from the research the largest IT services company started in collaboration with the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in order to come up with an answer for practitioners repeatedly looking for alternative tools (open source, web-based, on-the-cloud project management tools). The presented research starts from an existing list of tools and attempts an evaluation of each of them based on their ability to solve some real cases we built interconnecting typical project management dimensions and requirements. Taking inspiration from Maslow’s triangle we close stating that – as a project manager – we can be motivated to take conscious leadership of a project if all other needs we may have – educational, environmental – and primarily the need for good information and reliable tools – are satisfied.

Niels Malotaux - "How to deliver Quality On Time"

Delivering the right results at the right time is a simple requirement for projects, but not always achieved. In this session we will present techniques which allowed projects having "impossible" deadlines deliver successfully at or before the deadline.

We will discuss why delivery time is so important and how to get and keep the timing of the project under control while improving the results, using a combination of techniques to organize the work, and to check the validity of the requirements and our assumptions. These techniques allow us, even after a few weeks in the project, to quite accurately predict what will be done when. If this prediction shows that the project will be late, we actively deal with it. Many measures people intuitively apply for getting a project on time, however, are actually counterproductive. We'll warn you for these deceptive measures and we'll confide less intuitive measures that do work. Your projects will be more successful faster

Marco Buijnsters - "Integrated Project Management and Control as THE new trends in Project Management...?!"

Is IP(P)M the new Holy Grail? Is IP(P)M THE thing Project and Program Management is waiting for to save our project souls? And what is IPM, and do we have a uniform way of thinking about IPM? This is NOT the case as we will show during this presentation. IP(P)M, or Integrated Program (Performance) Management as it is known in the U.S.A., has a different life under Integrated Project Management in Europe, specifically in The Netherlands. And apart from that it is quite often mixed up with things falling under the concept of Integrated Project Control (IPC). In order to create better cooperation in (large scale) infrastructure projects in The Netherlands, the Dutch Water Board (Rijkswaterstaat) has been successfully developing the concept of Integrated Project Management. Within this form of IPM, Project Management is divided into 5 processes with its related responsibilities. Thus creating an Integrated Project Management Team (IPMT) where nothing is (supposed to be) overlooked in a public sector project. Even though the approach is quite successful for the larger projects and is spreading throughout public sector projects and their contractors it has it flaws in other types and sizes of projects and project environments.

Sometimes project is halted for too long, because the team cannot find solution to a problem, which just occurred. TRIZ is problem solving toolkit for harder problems. It was originally created for engineers and is responsible for success of Samsung. TRIZ is the science of creativity derived from all scientific and engineering solutions. TRIZ tools direct us to find all the ways of solving a problem, to find new concepts and the routes for developing new products. TRIZ has simple general lists of how to solve any problem; these TRIZ solution triggers are distilled from analysing all known engineering success. Presentation packed with examples will show where application of TRIZ is most beneficial.

Prof. Andrzej Blikle

Traditional management is most frequently based on army hierarchy where command-and-control discipline is the major tool for the organization of work flow. Although this approach was relatively adequate in the XIX-th century, where a great part of manpower was low educated or just illiterate, it is certainly not adequate in the today’s world. If we deal with well-educated people, a much more efficient solution is a non-hierarchical model of freely cooperating processes, in which the flow of work is synchronized by supplier-client contacts. This briefly sketched model refers to my own experience when I was implementing it in my family firm (over 240 employees at that time) in the years 1997-2010. Briefly speaking the implementation of process model in a firm involves two types of actions: - administrative changes — which are relatively easy, - social and mental revolution — which is not easy at all. The revolution interferes deeply with our philosophy of work and even the philosophy of life. Just one example consists of changing the order of following mindset: success and money first to have a good life into the order good life in the first place, success and money will follow.

Piotr Bucki - "Tell me a story. Using the narratives backed by cognitive science and brain coupling for better leadership."

Our brain feeds on stories. They are as Carmino Gallo points data with soul. Using stories as a leadership tool for better understanding and motivation requires specific knowledge. The mere conviction that stories work is not enough. We need to harness the knowledge and scientific research of neurobiologists, cognitive psychologists and social psychologists to get best results. Stories as a tool can only worked if they are crafted around the findings of the brain coupling phenomenon, the mirror neurons and the biology of the brain on stories. Making the stories work for better leadership is my goal that I hope to project. The presented keynote will include case studies, scientific research to back the theories on stories and some easy to implement techniques for every manager and leader.

Leading a team means respecting him and every member of it. So far respect and manipulation are not highly compatible. During this presentation, you will learn the 10 best practices to destroy a resource psychologically, blow up a team and fail a project for sure. How to destroy the ego of the person and make sure they feel worthless, useless and that they don’t belong to this project team. Based on real experience and entertaining anecdotes, this speech will present you efficient manipulation techniques but also efficient way of climbing the hierarchy while ensuring the program failure. Don’t forget! Reverse psychology doesn’t work.

Business, government, non-profits and educational organizations need leaders who can effectively navigate complex, changing situations and get the job done. Results from PMI’s industry growth forecast revealed that between 2010 and 2020, 15.7 million new project management roles will be created globally across seven project-intensive industries. As a result, the economic footprint of the profession is slated to grow by USD$6.6 trillion. Growth at this level promises both opportunities for professionals as well as challenges for organizations.

Organizations need to lead and direct projects and programs—not just manage them. The well-rounded project manager not only has the technical project management skills, but also the strategic and business management skills-, and leadership skills.

• Only 66% of organizations say that leadership skills are teachable • And 66% of organizations say that leadership skills are most important for success in project management

The World Economic Forum on the global outlook for 2015 identified the lack of leadership as the No.3 challenge over the next 12-18 months. A current deficit of needed leadership skills is a problem; a gap between current leadership strengths and future leadership demands is a serious liability. The sooner organizations understand the reality of their leadership situation, the quicker they can move to adapt by refocusing leadership development efforts and rethinking recruitment priorities.

To increase leadership capacity, organizations need to take both a strategic and a tactical approach. This session includes results from research made by PMI’s Pulse of Profession, CCL and APQC on a survey of the leadership deficit today. Results of the survey suggest that organizations and leaders could benefit from investing in leadership development.

Ideas for developing competencies found to have the largest future leadership gap include: Leading employees, Strategic planning, Inspiring commitment, Change management, Employee development, Self-awareness.

Attendees will get awareness of leadership gaps. A clear understanding of the leadership behaviors and business strategy allows executives to develop a leadership strategy. During the session, we will practices some of the skills and brainstorm some ideas how to train the missing skills. Session includes some creative tools that will support the process.

Wojciech Śliwka - "New Leadership"

What shall we do to empower our people to achieve project goals? Views on leadership, hierarchy and authority relationships. What models are the most effective and what skills the PM has to have on board.

True Leadership in XXI century. Nowadays Leaders should transition transactional management towards transformational management. What does it mean? Extrinsic motivational is not working today (how many times do you give the award for well done job?). Why? Because of people who need more than before. They are quite well educated, they need to believe in something and in somebody as well they need to know that their manager believes in them, in their skills, etc…

That is why latter – day Leader has to have some special skills like fallow: 1. Vision and values. 2. Well communication (active and passive). 3. Motivate people using intrinsic motivational. 4. Develop people. 5. Delegate tasks. 6. Build winner team. 7. Change Management.

Nowadays Leaders should be: 1. Consistent in talking, doing and thinking. 2. Passionate and engage in all matters which he handles. 3. Supporting his people. 4. Thinking in a strategically way.

All above mentioned skills and competencies are very important for everybody who wants to be nowadays Real LEADER.

We live in interesting times. The world is changing with internet speed and the challenges worldwide competition is posing to companies are immense. So what can you do? Start by taking professionals serious and organize around them. For that we need new ideas how to work together. How do we take decisions when no one is the boss? How do we have effective meetings? And how do we set a strategy for the company? Ben Kuiken, a Dutch philosopher and publicist, introduces you into the world of new organizing. He has visited some inspiring examples, like Buurtzorg, Finext and Semco, and shares with us what we can learn from them.

For the past couple of years the concept of self-organization is spreading across the agile community. A lot of discussions and conference presentations about the ways of moving from command-and-control model to full self-organizing, collaborating teams. But have you ever had a chance to see a real life company adapting it on a daily basis? Would you like to know if it is at all possible? And are the people working in the company really eager to self-organize? If yes, feel free to join my talk. As we, at Selleo, are taking advantage of many Management 3.0 concepts, we couldn't resist the chance to saddle the Unicorn. Listen to my story about an unexpected journey through the delegation boards and levels, coaching and freshly ground Lavazza.

Jolanta Łabędzka-Benisz - "Kinshasa - Agile African Adventure - experience operation of specific projects managed in the agile way."

The main purpose of this simulation is to experience operation of specific projects managed in the agile way. The workshop shows behaviour consistent with the spirit of agile approaches, based on the AgilePM methodology. During the simulation participants carry out the project of travelling through Western Africa.

Traditional management is most frequently based on army hierarchy where command-and-control discipline is the major tool for the organization of work flow. Although this approach was relatively adequate in the XIX-th century, where a great part of manpower was low educated or just illiterate, it is certainly not adequate in the today’s world. If we deal with well-educated people, a much more efficient solution is a non-hierarchical model of freely cooperating processes, in which the flow of work is synchronized by supplier-client contacts. This briefly sketched model refers to my own experience when I was implementing it in my family firm (over 240 employees at that time) in the years 1997-2010. Briefly speaking the implementation of process model in a firm involves two types of actions: - administrative changes — which are relatively easy, - social and mental revolution — which is not easy at all. The revolution interferes deeply with our philosophy of work and even the philosophy of life. Just one example consists of changing the order of following mindset: success and money first to have a good life into the order good life in the first place, success and money will follow.

Nader Rad - "You’re failing: your method is neither Agile, nor Waterfall"

It’s usually assumed that there’s a one-dimensional spectrum of Agile-Waterfall state, in which we move to the Agile side automatically, by losing the management elements of a Waterfall system or adding the common Agile practices and behaviors (hybrid solutions). This is far from reality because of missing the second dimension: chaos! Ignoring to understand this fact drags companies to the chaotic state while they try to become Agile. The presentation helps participants understand how to create a correct combination of management systems that works, and brings value. The newly published PRINCE2 Agile will be criticized as an example to show the problem before explaining the solution.

How do you introduce agile development methods in an industry that is deeply entrenched in a waterfall mindset, both on the seller and the buyer side? Welcome to the Telecommunications Optical Networking industry, where we measure speeds in Terabits/s and mission-critical systems must guarantee 99.999% availability. If your R&D team is geographically distributed across multiple continents and projects involve both software and custom hardware development then it makes a difficult job even harder. Over the last 3 years we have learned some lessons on how to manage large mixed Waterfall/Agile R&D projects and programs across continents and cultures, and how to move from waterfall to agile on running projects without impact to ongoing business commitments. It’s a balancing act between many conflicting stakeholders and business needs. We will share our agile change management experiences from one large R&D program that made the transition and is still evolving.

Very often simple scrum is not enough in the big and complex IT projects. Team is losing efficiency, velocity drops, communication issues arise, and agile attitudes are not presented by team members anymore. Then those symptoms show, it’s worth considering implementation of the scaling agile framework to regain the control of the project. However it’s not an easy path to follow and many traps are on the way. This talk will answer how to avoid them and show the best practices on the example of the case study of the IT program in the automotive industry.

Meetings, both online and offline, are the most popular state-of-the-art instrument of resolving technical and management issues in software projects. I believe that this is what will be changed in the nearest future, revolutionary. Software teams will become more disciplined and organized. We won’t use meetings as tools of management, design and architecture. In my presentation I will try to demonstrate how meetings can be replaced by a disciplined management process, empowered by modern tools or collaboration, diagramming and coding.

Lidia Krawczyk & Jerzy Stawicki - "Agile & Project Management Transformation – Walking on the Minefield and Survive"

Supporting as change agent PM/ Agile transformation – is like walking on the minefield. Minefield metaphor is used to present the experiences from work in companies of different type and size, aiming at achievement of business benefits and creation of friendly & effective work environment via transformation towards modern PM and PPM (like building PMO, PPM system, introducing Agile). The focus of presentation is on the few practical and eye-opening change and leadership aspects of transformation:

Organizational context (“mine field”): structure, culture, language; People on top/middle management levels (“mines”): their expectations, ego, emotions; Change agent (“sapper”): his knowledge, experience, philosophy. Our experience shows, that still many surprising and inspiring insights and challenges of such transformation is not known or not broadly recognized. “The whole universe is change and life itself is but what you deem it” – Marcus Aurelius words are a good summary of presented ideas.

What is PM@Siemens (project management at Siemens) and why in my view, did Siemens do what Siemens did? How was Siemens able to deploy a global project business change programme across 190 countries, nine principle divisions and that is understood and known by 360,000 employees? What benefits in my view has it realized and what difference and inspiration did it made to the capability and development of Siemens, its project and programme managers and to the perception of Siemens itself in the maket place? How could a similar approach support the evolution of project management in other organisations, large or small?

Marketing has it’s own tools – but many of them are very similar to the ones that are used in Project Management. Project Manager works with stakeholders, Marketer with his target group. Both Project Manager and Marketer has it’s goals and KPI’s. What one industry can learn from the other?

Many people think that marketing has only chaos in it’s nature and is much different than the structured and logic Project Management. But… is it?

There are many things we can learn from each other. We have to remember, that we are all working in the human business – communication, relations, insporation and precise goal setting are the key in every project.

Jolanta Łabędzka Benisz - "Creation of the Agile Project simulation from initial idea to a fully operating product."

It is a common knowledge that the first thing in the agile way of acting during a project are such behaviours as collaboration, effective communication and taking responsibility for the decisions made. While the agile specific tools or frameworks can be learnt from books, video clips or courses, changing our behaviour is not so easy. Before we become a “battle-hardened agilers” we have to train somewhere. The best way is to start from a safe controlled environment such as a project simulation game.

That was the idea standing behind our project of creation the Agile Simulation Game. In my presentation I want to show – from the PM point of view – how we managed this unpredictable project. I’ll show how we started from the agreed set of behaviours the game should train and how we then proceeded in the agile way. How the business side supported us and kept the whole project under control. What were the risks and obstacles and how they were overcome.

Konrad Jagodziński - "Corporate and startup PM, is there any difference?"

Praca w korporacji, jako PM projektów rozwojowych pozwoliła mi przejść przez wszystkie fazy zarządzania projektem. Doświadczenia z tym związane pokazały mi możliwości, które zainspirowały mnie do budowy własnego innowacyjnego startupu, realizującego strategię błękitnego oceanu. Nie porzuciłem przy tym całkiem korporacji, będąc PMem na pół etatu. Tym samym przez prawie dwa lata dzieliłem oba światy – korporacyjny i startupu.

Dało mi to szansę obserwacji i porównania obu środowisk, prowadząc mój innowacyjny startup i nowe projekty korporacyjne. Lekcja ta nauczyła mnie, że różnice znajdują się nie tam gdzie tego oczekujemy, a cech wspólnych jest więcej niż się spodziewamy. Podczas tego warsztatu chciałbym się z wami podzielić tym doświadczeniem, a także skłonić was do dyskusji na temat zasadności stereotypów, które dzielimy myśląc o świecie korporacji i startupów.

„Great things don’t happen in a vacuum”. Creating an environment for creative thinking and innovation is a big challenge.

How can you make it happen at your company? The answer is: gamestorming.

Gamestorming is a set of co-creation tools used by innovators around the world. Have you ever heard about Edward de Bono and his „Six thinking hats”? If yes, you will learn much more. If no – this workshop is a great way to start. During this workshop we will try some of the best games that will help you lead brainstorming sessions more ffectively. Are you ready?

Niels Malotaux - "How to deliver Quality On Time"

In this workshop we will present techniques which allowed projects having ‘impossible’ deadlines deliver successfully at or before the deadline. We will do several exercises to make you experience these techniques yourself. We will discuss why delivery time is so important and how to get and keep the timing of the project under control while improving the results, using a combination of techniques to organize the work, and to check the validity of the requirements and our assumptions. With these techniques we can, even very early in the project, quite accurately predict what will be done when. If this prediction shows that the project will be late, we actively deal with it. Many measures people intuitively apply for getting a project on time, however, are actually counterproductive. We’ll warn you for these deceptive measures and we’ll confide less intuitive measures that do work. Your projects will be more successful faster.
