If your company is like many, you continue to experience failure to deliver projects to schedule, budget, and scope, and may experience cancelled projects at an alarming rate. Although this problem seems to be publicized most in the IT industry, it affects all projects from basic R&D to construction, in all industries.
ViewPoint is a visual project execution model that transforms the project delivery system, bridging the gap from planning to results.
Lower operating costs through improved productivity
Deliver on time
Users also report improved quality of work life (more satisfaction, less frustration) for project team members.
This highly interactive workshop provides participants with the understanding and skills to immediately build a Visual Project Management Board and begin the ViewPoint Visual Project Management journey.
You’ll learn how to build your Visual Project Management System and create a collaborative project management environment. Right away.
Better Project Outcomes are the Result of Better Project Execution
The main obstacle to success in every project is the ability of managers to focus on the items that will matter the most to the overall projects results. The first objective in a ViewPoint implementation is to provide this ability, establishing a firm foundation for successful project execution. Management and the project team to fully understand the scope of activity to be accomplished, the risks to success, and establish the management and control structures to successfully execute the project.
We have learned there are several leverage points in the execution process to help the project team focus on the most important project issues. By mastering these principles, the results achieved during project execution are achieved with startlingly impressive performance.
By making your projects visible, you’ll create a unified approach where your teams will be working on the most important issues using the right tools to get the job done. Your teams will begin to do what they are supposed to do; facilitate focused, lasting improvements that improve the position of the company as a whole.
Those who have implemented ViewPoint Visual Project Portfolio Management have received dramatic improvements in project performance, regardless of the project management maturity level of the organization.
Doubling ofproject completions
Reductions of 20%- 40% in project duration
Productivity improvements greater than 25%
We want participants to:
Experience how a ViewPoint Visual Project Management system emerges from an existing process (like we do it in the real world)
Experience a whole ViewPoint portfolio management system (as opposed to focusing only on the board and related mechanics)
Understand that boards are context-dependent: for any given process there are many different board designs that are adequate and useful, but not necessarily one single optimal board
Understand the effects of applying the principles that deliver excellent results
Experience self-organization and adaptation
Day 1: Visualize Your Projects
Visualize the process
Defining work packages
Rules for Collaboration
Day 2: Building the Board
Application of principles from the first day to build a visual project board
This two-day workshop is a practical application of ViewPoint Visual Project Portfolio Management concepts and when presented internally, provides a forum to establish a foundation for implementation. The emphasis is on making your projects and workflow visible to support improved collaboration and increased velocity.
In the workshop, attendees gain new insight into how to bring focus to the project execution process, creating a collaborative environment, and developing the feedback mechanisms to identify the most critical areas to manage.
