Project Management Institute (PMI)® Professional Development Units (PDUs):
This Webinar is eligible for 1 PMI® PDU in the Strategic category of the Talent Triangle.
This webinar is based on Eric Uyttewaal’s new textbook ‘Forecasting Programs’ published in January 2018. Programs have long-range visions, high-visibility, many moving parts, and programs are overwhelming and sometimes destructive (for reputations). Regardless of the challenges in managing programs, the author thinks that programs are inherently not more complex than projects, they are just on a higher level of abstraction. Furthermore, program stakeholders are smarter and more assertive. Budgets are much larger. Program managers who try managing a program like a project are doomed to fail: Program management has its own techniques and tools. So, what are those? That is what this webinar is about: Eric and his team developed special techniques and special applications specifically for program managers. These innovations allow program managers to forecast their programs, and take corrective action early. Program managers do not need to be monthly-messengers-of-bad-news! With these new innovations, they can gain back control over their program, and, at a minimum, adjust expectations in a more timely fashion, or … turn into monthly‑messengers‑of‑good‑news!
