PMI Mid Missouri Chapter

Chapter Event

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.

Project Managers are usually confronted with situations and events that have a negative effect on the established schedule and they are still expected to bring the project in on time. One proven method to improve schedule compliance is to employ select 6 SIGMA methodologies to selected processes. This analytical improvement technique provides project teams, who play to win, with an avenue to reduce the time required to complete a selected process without reducing quality.

Afternoon Workshop - Cross Border Projects (1:00 - 4:00 PM)

Cross Border Project Management is becoming a way of life for today’s professionals.  Cross-cultural contact is increasing, creating a greater potential for both conflict and cooperation. Given this rapidly changing environment, the ability to relate to people with varying cultural backgrounds is an essential skill for project managers that play to win. 

This program focuses on results-oriented leadership, collaboration and communication with individuals and organizations from different world regions. Going beyond mere tolerance, this program delves deeply into barriers to effective international project management and provides strategies for building productive international teams.
