Socializing Projects

Gina Abudi (@GinaAbudi on Twitter) returns to discuss socializing projects with host Craig Price. Whenever Craig is asked about project management experts, he immediately brings up past guest Gina Abudi. She know her stuff and has put a lot of that knowledge into her new book “Best Practices for Managing BPI Projects: Six Steps to Success“. So much knowledge that when Craig asked her on the podcast, they needed to narrow her expertise down to fit the time frame. They agreed that socializing projects was one of the most important part and least utilized part of project management. The two discuss how to incorporate and engage stakeholders, dissect a project before it’s implemented, ugly baby syndrome and why a failing pilot program can be so valuable.

BPI projects are some of the most difficult and challenging to manage. Improving results for the business is not an easy task! Doing so requires understanding the vision and long-term goals of an organization. It also requires the ability to engage stakeholders and manage change. Best Practices for Managing BPI Projects is a guide for project managers who want to improve how they manage BPI projects. Using a simple step-by-step, six-phase approach, project managers and others involved in BPI initiatives will increase their confidence and their effectiveness in managing the complexities of business process improvement projects. Special focus is given to the necessary leadership skills required to be successful in driving change by improving processes within an organization to improve business results.
