Agile is a mdanarobersonethodology based on iterative and incremental development and promotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development and delivery during the lifecycle.  Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) is a best practices life cycle model that provides guidance for developing or improving processes to meet the business goals for that lifecycle. CMMI has been highly generalized over the years to embrace other areas of interest, and this makes CMMI extremely abstract and very easy to tailor. Click 'read more' for bio.

    Come hear our presenters discuss using the ISO 21500:2012 guidance standard as a vehicle to demonstrate project management conformance during an ISO 9001 audit. They will reveal key approaches they used to embed project management in their quality management system. They will show how using PMI’s standards as a framework was key to their success.

    Abstract
    The PMO plays a key role in integrating relevant standards while developing a successful project management methodology for an organization. The recent release of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Standard 21500:2012, Guidance on Project Management, has contributed to the complexity of integrating standards while providing the opportunity for organizations to show project management process conformance through an internationally recognized standards process.Many organizations utilize ISO 9001:2008 to manage their service/product oriented processes and the ISO 21500 guidance standard can be used as a vehicle to demonstrate project management conformance during an ISO 9001 audit. See how one organization employed an approach using PMI’s OPM3 ® as a framework to align with the PMBOK/ ISO 21500:2012 and used results to for their ISO 9001 registration and upcoming ISO 21500 audit.

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Albuquerque District was established in 1935 to oversee the construction of Conchas Dam. Almost 80 years later, USACE project managers run a variety of large military and non-military projects across New Mexico and the southwest. The Albuquerque District manages projects for the Army, Air Force, Border Patrol, Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Nuclear Security Agency, to name a few. The USACE also administers contract actions for all types of projects, from solicitation, to award of a contract, and oversight of contractor performance. Hear about different projects the Albuquerque District manages, and how shrinking budgets are leading to a leaner and more responsive USACE work force with more emphasis on sustainability and energy efficiency.

    Synopsis:  We estimate, plan, and manage cost. We use budgeting, financing, and funding to feed our project needs. Can cost management be boiled down to an Excel spreadsheet, or is there art and creativity woven in the management of coin? And does art and creativity open up doors to ethical and moral issues?

    Topic: Quality and its constituents

     We use our business environment’s definition of quality policies, objectives, and responsibilities in developing project and deliverable quality requirements and objectives. Is there an opportunity to sharpen our “quality saw”? How do we use tools such as CoQ to determine when ‘enough spit and polish is enough’?

    PDU: 1.5   

    • Whether or not you have "leader" or "manager" in your title, project success often rests on your ability to get things done through others. In other words, leadership. The first step in leading others is to understand yourself. A good way to do that is to develop a personal leadership philosophy. Bob will illustrate why this philosophy is important and how to develop it. During the presentation, audience members will begin to develop their own personal leadership philosophies to help them become more effective project managers.

      Prediciting and Surviving the Death March Project

    When do you know when a project is not just a death-march, but has you thinking Michael Bay may want to purchase rights to bring it to the big screen? Is it because you just found out your software vendor hired Private Investigators to go through your trash? Is it that almost every PMI chapter is racing to present it as a ‘what not to do’? Please join us in a review of the ‘Cover Oregon’ Web deployment and assessment, some incredibly insightful best methods coming out of that work, and what leading experts recommend when you are handed “that Project”.

    Annie Muller Bio:  New transport to NM and the chapter, Annie comes to PMIRGC with over 10 years of globally diverse technology,  consulting, business, leadership and management professional background.
