This month's topic:
PMI's Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA) Certification is one of eight certifications offered by PMI. The PMI-PBA is one of the two certifications that does not have a PMI standard associated with it. We will look at some of the references recommended by PMI and see how closely the PMI-PBA aligns with the IIBA BABOK v3. We will also look at how the business analyst role relates to the project manager. What are the major differences? What are the overlaps? CCBAs and CBAPs welcome.

Speaker: 2014 PDD* Speaker: Rosemary Peh, PMP
Synopsis: How does an idea move from concept to business case to approved project and finally to regular business operations with full benefits realized? Why do most projects seem to move forward on a justification, but rarely actually realize the originally proposed benefits? Do we celebrate that the project was done on-time and on-budget, only to realize that the conversion to business operations is taking more than expected? This session provides a business view of projects from a business operationalization and benefits realization perspective. That business success is measured not just by being on-time and on-budget, but also on the merits of a smooth transition to regular operations and the measured delivery of benefits post implementation. Learn about what it takes to have projects be the delivery mechanism for business success, work through real-life cost/benefit modeling challenges, and what it takes to actually realize business benefits in the long term.

2015-07-15 Luncheon (C166-P1507150): "Project Management Processes and the Role of the Process Owner"
Speaker: Steve Romero, IT Governance Evangelist and Business Value Activist, Romero Consulting
Synopsis: Project Management Processes and the Role of the Process Owner
Given the prevalence of long-established project management methodology, the words “project” and “process” go hand in hand. It is rare to encounter a project manager today who doesn’t use and follow project management process. The Project Management Institute (PMI) recently published the fifth edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK). Axelos has published the second version of Projects IN Controlled Environments (Prince2). In addition to these most prominent approaches, there is a plethora of methodologies, processes and guidelines published by countless experts and consulting firms.
The question is, how are these project management processes working, and more importantly, what does a project manager do or where does she or he go when they encounter process-related issues or problems? Project Managers also contend with a myriad of other business processes they must follow or invoke in the course of accomplishing their project tasks and meeting project objectives. What do project managers do when these processes aren’t working or in the worst case, impeding project success?
Project management is one of the most disciplined and regimented processes in enterprises today, but like many enterprise business processes, they are not always founded in disciplined process management and cared for by an accountable and devoted process owner.
This presentation provides a high-level understanding of the role of the process owner in the realm of project management process. The presentation provides an overview of:
• The essential elements of a successful process implementation to ensure process acceptance and adoption
• A process management lifecycle that focuses on the customer of the process and the success of process participants
• The role, responsibilities and attributes of a Project Management Process Owner
Please join us for an engaging speaker, lunch, and networking opportunities. Anyone currently involved or interested in the Project Management profession is welcome!
