Interesting facts and practical tips on the subject of project design - for all those who are about to start a new project.
With flip-flops to the summit cross? With hiking boots to the beach for surfing? You can do that. But it can also be difficult or even lead to the fact that one arrives at the desired destination with some injuries. From our point of view, it's a similar story with projects when it comes to deciding on the right design.
In our webinar, our project management experts Stefan Resch and Dr. Ralph Kogelheide take a look at what is meant by project design, what is important and how important the project design is for the further course of the project. In addition, they go into different variants for designing a project and present the most important steps and decision criteria for starting a project. Of course, everything is peppered with illustrative examples from our practice.
Whether it is the work breakdown structure, often referred to as the mother of all plans in classic project management, or the storymap, also known as the holy grail in the agile approach - the structured collection of the work to be done and processes within a project is regarded in project management as the basis for the successful completion of a project.
In our online session, we will show how a project team can quickly arrive at a structured representation of the essential project tasks with relatively little effort. We will also take a closer look at the reasons why work package planning is so often rejected, look at what can happen if you start without planning, and reveal tricks for convincing skeptics of its benefits after all. We even go one step further and show - at least for many medium-sized projects - how you can have a usable project plan at hand with just one more step.
In this online session, we take a look at three typical project management routines that, despite all the skepticism about interactive online workshops, can be wonderfully executed as online sessions. In addition to the script, templates and tools for the meetings, we also look at possible sources of disruption and share our experiences of what can go wrong online and how it still works.
The speakers of the webinar - Dr. Ralph Kogelheide and Marcel Valentin - have already experienced in different constellations the typical reservations that one encounters as a project manager in the role as mediator between classic and agile project worlds. In our online session, the two of them will take a closer look at the key differences and show us the concrete approaches and tools that project managers can use to deal with them.
In this webinar, Julia von Bomsdorff tells us how a SCRUM board, "Daily Stand-Ups", "Sprint Plannings" and "Storypoints" can be playfully integrated into homeschooling and how mother and daughter handled it. For those who want to refresh or expand their knowledge of agile methods, Dr. Sophia Schubert explains the applied building blocks of agile methodology.
If you already have some experience with Microsoft Teams, our webinar is exactly the right next step to show your project teams the next maturity level of collaboration. Learn how to collect all relevant planning in a structured way in virtual project rooms, maintain it together and keep an overview of the project progress.
