In 2019 the master’s students of the Business School of Lausanne under the management of their professor, Claudia Kary, executed a survey in the hospital sector that revealed a close correlation between the existence of a Project Management standard within an organisation and their level of maturity.

PRINCE2 and Hermes were the two standards mostly used by Swiss hospitals. Hospitals, which used either standard as their project management backbone had a higher overall maturity than those not applying any standard.

A follow-on online workshop with several hospitals after the first wave of the pandemic furthermore revealed changed needs in project management. Because of the necessity to react quickly, organisations adopted agile ways of working.
However, not being able to work in close contact with your colleagues was named as a big obstacle in “agile” projects.

In line with these events, QRP, in association with ecoHermes and Claudia Kary, decided to organize a further online event. The event aims to present the main points of the survey and workshop, focusing mainly on the HERMES methodology, and to create a space where professionals have the opportunity to give their own personal contributions.

 

About the event

We invited a group of experts to discuss Project Management related topics.
The event is divided into three pillars:

1. Survey & Workshop Outcomes – about 20 minutes
Presentation of the outcomes of the survey and workshops, covering the topics of project management maturity in relation to methodologies such as HERMES before and during the pandemic period

2. Panel Discussion – about 30 minutes
Free space dedicated to questions, comments and topics proposed by attendees.

3. ProfeoMAS – about 10 minutes
How a Project Management maturity assessment can support you in identifying adequate actions to further improve your project management.

 

Why attend this event?

In this webinar, you will learn about the impact that the application of HERMES or PRINCE2 has on the success of projects. A survey conducted in the Swiss health sector before the occurrence of the COVID-19 pandemic, combined with a recent follow-up illustrates how crucial project management capabilities are in times of crisis.

You will learn how a project management maturity assessment is applied to an organization and how you can improve processes based on collected data and expertise from specialists in the field.

There will be room for intense discussions after the two presentations. Contribute with your experience of the last year of the pandemic, discuss with professionals in your field and get interesting insights into how methodologies can help your daily work and project management.

The PM² Methodology is the official project management methodology of the European Commission and was first released for the EU institutions in 2008 and as Open PM² for the greater public in 2016.
It is a lean and easy to implement methodology suitable for any type of project as it enables project teams to manage projects effectively and deliver solutions and benefits to their organisations and stakeholders.
These goals and ambitions have a lot in common with HERMES 5, the Swiss project management methodology since 1975 and in Luxembourg since 2006.

Laurent is a project management professional and has been involved in industrial, IT and quality projects since the 1990s. He is one of the co-authors of PM², the official project management methodology of the European Institutions that has been released to the public in 2016 as OpenPM².

He is also active in representing the Belgian project management community at the International Standard Organisation and participates in the making of the ISO 21500 standard family on project management. Before this, Laurent spent over a decade leading quality and IT infrastructure programmes for General Electric in France, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.

During this time in various Industry sectors (Aviation, Energy, Oil & Gas), he earned a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt certification and since has been a pioneer and active promoter of lean project management, the topic on which he authored his first book “The Lean Project Manager” in 2017.

But what do you do next, how do you actually apply ITIL on a daily basis?

ITIL is created to adopt and adapt, to tailor to your organization, but that is easier than said.
That is why we invited our expert and trainer Kais Albassir to host a series of online ITIL user events.

During this first session, Kais will share his take on the ITIL application and provide some insights, tips & tricks and lessons learned. However, we also like your input. At the start of the event, we will have a poll where we decide together the topic to discuss.

The topics in which you can choose are the following:

  • From ITILv3 to ITIL 4: what are the differences? Why should we go to ITIL 4? What will it bring us?
  • Problem management: how to implement problem management and make it work with Incident Management to leave the catch 22
  • Portfolio management (service, product, supplier, customer,…) and service catalogue
  • Structure: is there a maximum of what you can handle?
  • How to convince Senior Management?

The ‘Trail and error. Applying ITIL‘ event is aimed at those with profound experience with ITIL (v3 or 4).
It is highly encouraged to share your own experiences/challenges with ITIL.
