Title: The 'New' Microsoft Project: Bridging Project Management and Work Management
PDU: 1 Technical
Overview: Did you know that Microsoft launched a new evolution of Microsoft Project? The new tool is modern, simple and collaborative more than ever.
Traditionally, project management tools are pretty good at helping organizations manage projects. At an organizational level or a departmental level this works, because the management of 'work' is done at a macro level. However, the question of how the work is managed at a micro level i.e. at an individual/team level has not quite been solved through these tools.
This resulted in the up rise of several "work" management tools, which focus on how work is managed at an individual/team level, which is great, but they left a gap in the big picture of managing at a project level, and strategic priorities.
Now, the question is, does the "New Project", solve both of these conundrums.
This session will delve deeper into some real life scenarios, which different roles like a Project manager, Resource manager, Team member will come across, and provide perspective on how the "New Project" will help solve them.

Based on six-year research from PMI analyzing the factors that have the most impact on project success, three things rose to the top when it comes to helping organizations save millions of dollars.
1. Investing in actively engaged executive sponsors
2. Avoiding scope creep or uncontrolled changes to a project’s scope
3. Maturing value delivery capabilities
Your projects can achieve success by managing the above three success factors through actively engaged executive sponsors and stakeholders. By integrating Appreciative Inquiry in the stakeholder engagement process, the Project Managers can gain buy into the vision of the project, build authentic relationships with sponsors, project teams, and other impacted stakeholders, and create the desired future state with the business outcome. This presentation will provide you with an overview of the Appreciative Inquiry construct and how we can apply the techniques to create high stakeholder engagement and project delivery effectiveness.
