Storytelling for Cost Estimators

2022-Christina_Snyder.jpgMrs Christina Snyder, CCEA® Executive Vice President, ICEAA International Board of Directors

As estimators, we advocate the importance of good data; but without context, estimates and analyses are just numbers. To give power to our work, we need to effectively pair good estimating with good communication. There is no existing best practice guidance for estimators on how to create a compelling narrative to accompany analysis. By leveraging a storytelling structure, we can inspire action, communicate our findings in a way that resonates, and ultimately become more effective.

This seminar focuses on the core requirements for establishing effective project controls in an organisation including:
• Summarising the scope of the project controls initiative, including benefits, assumptions, constraints, key activities, key quantities, key risks, etc
• Agreeing the project controls objectives and benefits
• Identifying and agreeing the relevant governance activities to incorporate into a project controls strategy to exercise oversight at the required level
• Identifying and agreeing each project's control requirements to generate meaningful data that meets the requirements of the project, organization, and other stakeholders.

Complex Project Management Governance

Rob_McMartin.jpgRob McMartin PMO Manager for Hanwha Defense Australia

There has been an evolution occurring in projects and where once projects were difficult, but simple. They have now evolved to include a variety of different types of projects.
As these new project types have emerged and increased in difficulty, complexity and value, it has become obvious that the current systems, processes and governance requirements are now no longer suitable.

This presentation looks at the differences in the new evolved projects, as well as techniques for managing, controlling and governing these projects. We will look at the definitions of the project types and governance and personal attributes required for delivery of the new types of projects.

Why a complexity-based view of project delivery is becoming even more important

Naomi_Mathers.jpgNaomi Mathers Director, Industry Liaison and Member Services 
International Centre for Complex Project Management

Delivering projects in an environment exhibiting volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) characteristics requires special treatment using tools and methods designed for use in these types of environments. However, many conventional project management methods, methodologies, frameworks, and bodies of knowledge used today are based on a linear and deterministic (controllable and predictable) world view. That is not to say that these don't have their place, indeed conventional project management methodologies and tools are foundational and necessary, however, they are insufficient when dealing with project complexity. This presentation will explore why a complexity-based view of project delivery is important, and why this must include more than just project, program and portfolio managers.
