New Video - The Role of the Agile BA

  • By: pcadmin on 04 May 2016

Agile delivery methods tend to have builders of a solution working more directly with stakeholders to understand their requirements. Many in the agile community have said that they no longer need business analysts. This has understandably led to concerns in the BA community that they are becoming obsolete in an agile world.

In this new video, senior Procept consultant Ori Schibi talks about the key role that BAs can play in agile projects — if they have the right know how and attitudes.

Ori Schibi is one of the instructors of Procept's latest course, Agile BA Basics.

New Online Course: Operators as Part of the Project Team

  • By: pcadmin on 15 Apr 2016

Your Operators are the life blood of your project. For a project manager caught up in the frenzied bustle of his or her work, this can be an easy fact to overlook. However, the Operator has tremendous influence over project success. The PM who has a deep understanding of the role is in an excellent position to create an effective ally.

In order to protect the Owner's investment, Operators must provide input into the design, construction, startup and operation of a project. Engineers, vendors and contractors all rely on Operator feedback and so the PM needs to take steps to reliably document and record Operator input.

In this short, e-learning course, participants learn about the role of the operator and how to effectively incorporate them into the project team without leading to disruption.

New Online Course: Introduction to Agile Requirements Using User Stories

  • By: pcadmin on 15 Apr 2016

Agile teams use Use Cases and User Stories to define requirements, but what other… Wait a minute... What’s a User Story?

Not everyone has heard of them but even those who have may benefit from complimentary tools that highlight patterns in the roles of stakeholders, putting a face on the users with personas.

This 1-hour e-learning course will provide an introduction to user stories, highlight what is a terribly-written user story, and how to fix it. Don’t do a perfect job of building the wrong thing; use these agile tools to ensure that you build the right thing.

New Online Course: Fundamentals of Capital Project Cost Control

  • By: pcadmin on 15 Apr 2016

Project budgets can vary from $5,000 to whatever size a company can handle. The problem companies have with capital projects is how to allocate the scarce resource (money) to the maximum benefit of the company. Some factors that go into choosing which projects get done include what the competition is doing, the company’s long-range plans, return on investment (ROI), and risk. ROI is critical to making a decision, as a company is only going to undertake a project if it can make a return on its money by doing it. Think of all the projects you know about that were over budget. What affect did that have on the ROI and did it add value, or cost the company money?

As you know, it is very important to keep a project on track and within budget. It is imperative that costs be controlled during all phases of a project, and you can only control costs if you know what goes into making up the total project budget. You have to set up a project so that costs can be easily identified and controlled.

Project cost control is a lot of work and requires a team effort. In theory, project cost control sounds easy but it is a lot more difficult to put into practice, especially if basic financial information is not correct.

Sign up for this course today and learn the fundamentals of capital cost control for your project.

  • By: pcadmin on 12 Apr 2016

New Online Course: Entrepreneurial Thinking and Customer Management

  • By: pcadmin on 12 Apr 2016

Entrepreneurs naturally tend to gravitate to product development and in the process can overlook the benefits and minimize the challenges of consistent and comprehensive customer management. This new self-paced e-learning course looks to apply to the discipline of customer management the same elements of entrepreneurial thinking that are commonly applied to product innovation.

This unique course examines the benefits of comprehensive customer management through the use of five case studies involving ancient Roman entrepreneurs. Four of the five entrepreneurs achieved great success by focusing their talents for innovation on the customer more so than their products. Each case study presented will analyze the ancient businessperson’s approach to dealing with their customers and insights gained will be extrapolated to the modern business world. At the conclusion of every module, participants will be tasked with applying the lessons learned to a modern market situation.

Customer management demands much more than a tweet, an apologetic email, text, or a posted press release on the home page of a supplier’s website – good customer management requires the ongoing application of entrepreneurial thinking. Study this course to learn ancient techniques that can be applied to today's business world.

New Online Course Launched: Contract Management for Field Personnel

  • By: pcadmin on 12 Apr 2016

Each project is different in the way field contracts are managed. Sometimes there is a dedicated contract administrator, other times it is a field engineer who has to manage the contract and still others it is the construction manager or the project manager. On a daily basis they have to make decisions to act or not to act. These decisions could materially affect the Contractor, the Owner, and others.

In the end, no matter who is managing the contract, the same contract management activities apply and the field personnel require knowledge of these activities. Knowing these activities will go a long way in minimizing claims during the contract management process as well as lessening problems in the field.

This new 12-hour self-paced e-learning course looks at 16 different activities associated with managing a field contract. Each of the 16 activities is important to the whole effort of managing the contract. If you leave out one, the whole contract management effort falls apart.
