Risk management is a core component of project management; but much of the time it seems like the toolkit that hides in the back of the shed. Let's do some spring cleaning and talk about when it is best used and how we can dust off some of these critical tools to make our projects more successful!

Bring your lunch and join us at City of Columbia Municipal Government Building on March 28th!

PMO Forum Event - Clear Communication

04-17-2019 5:30 pm -6:30 pm
Free

Hey, hello, what’s up. How do you communicate? Do you speak to the CIO in the same manner that you speak to technical team members? Have you ever mis-spoken and had to apologize – how did that go? Have you ever had to apologize for somebody else’s poor communication skills? All hailing frequencies are open, but is the listener understanding the message that you intend? Please be prepared to share how you communicate to varied stakeholders.

May 2019 Workshop - Innovation Games for Agile Teams

05-17-2019 8:00 am -5:00 pm
$250.00

Do you work on projects where it seems like you’re missing the mark with your external customers? Do your internal stakeholders think you lack a true understanding of their needs?

Both scenarios are common within Software Development. Regardless of which SDLC framework you’re operating in (“waterfall”, “agile”, something in-between), getting to the real needs of the customer is never easy. Accurately predicting what customers want, need, and will pay for is tough. Even if you ask them, they often can’t explain what they want.

Innovation Games are a collection of collaboration frameworks that you can play online or in-person with your colleagues and customers. The goal is understanding the true needs of your customers and turning Idea into Action™.

The games themselves, while fun, are more than just play. Each game leverages deep principles of cognitive psychology and organizational behavior to uncover data that is difficult to uncover using traditional requirement elicitation or market research techniques. As you come to understand the power of these principles, your use of the games will improve, and you’ll find yourself able to discover even richer data.
