Professional Development Events

Saturday Workshop: November 29, 2014
The Kano Model Explained: A Primary Tool in Managing Quality, Scope and Requirements
Presenter: Gladys Carroll

Registration is closed.

Have you ever reached the end of a project, delivered exactly what the client/users asked for, but they still were not happy? Client assumptions cause grief for projects.  Exploring them is also an important source of lessons learned.

The Kano Model is one of the most powerful, yet simple ways to position the gathering and understanding of quality, scope and requirements. It looks at the dynamic of basic/implied requirements versus delight/above and beyond requirements, against customer satisfaction. This is used to develop a series of questions to ask stakeholders, to ensure a fuller scope/quality/requirements statement for the project.

Gladys Carroll teaches at the Schulich Executive Education Centre (at the Schulich School of Business) at York University, and uses Action Planners to ensure participants take away the means to implement their learning immediately into their own environment.

Project Management Worst Practices: A Celebration of the Best Ways to Burn Down Your Career

The session is a humorous but probing look at the things project managers do that limit their growth and professional development. Dev Ramcharan will share stories from 25 years of experience as a practitioner in the private and public sectors.

Professional Courses

Registration is closed.

The course is based on the 2012 [5th edition] of the PMBOK guide and is presented in a seminar and workshop form including exercises and sample questions. This course is very similar to that offered by most PMI Registered Education Providers in that it will provide an in-depth review of all the PMBOK knowledge areas. This course is being offered to PMI members only by Procept Associates Ltd. which is a premier provider of professional training programs. It is ESSENTIAL that you read the PMBOK guide in advance of attending the course.

The Fall PMP Prep Course sponsored by PMI Lakeshore will be held on all 5 Saturdays in November: Nov 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29, 2014.
