The SIO is a Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) with PMI.  R.E.P.s are the only organizations authorized to offer PDUs and contact hours that are pre-approved by PMI.  To remain a R.E.P. in good standing, the SIO needs to renew each year and undergo an in-depth review every three years.

PMlite Training

When:  Second Wednesday of each month

Register

PMlite Training is designed to describe our use of Planview for people tasked with managing smaller projects for the UTO. We look at the main Planview components, navigation, customizations available to users, and focus on the main project stages including best practices. This training can also serve as a great introduction for full-fledged Project Managers. PMlite training does not look at resource management. If you are interested in Planview resource management, please put in a ServiceNow ticket and we will contact you.  

This class is scheduled on the second Wednesday of each month, a single session of 1.5 hours with a limit of 8 attendees. Additional registrants will be placed on a waiting list, or they can sign up for a different session.

A Scrum Master helps project teams properly use Scrum, increasing the likelihood of the project's overall success. Scrum Master’s understand Scrum values, practices, and applications and provide a level of knowledge and expertise above and beyond that of typical project managers. Scrum Master’s act as "servant leaders," helping the rest of the Scrum team work together and learn the Scrum framework. Scrum Master’s also protect the team from both internal and external distractions.

Lean concepts are often associated with Toyota and the Toyota Production System (TPS), but it should be noted that the principles have been around in various forms for many years.  They have been proven to be just as effective in improving service operations as they are in improving manufacturing processes. 

In any organization, it is not uncommon to encounter processes that are overly complex, impeded by waste and wasteful practices, have a poor workflow, and which do not fully meet customer needs.  These problems could be due to a number of differing things, such as the process being poorly designed, an aging process in need of maintenance and improvement, poor discipline around running the process, or changes in customer expectations.  These issues create processes that are costly to run, produce results more slowly than they should, and provide varying levels of value and quality to customers.  On occasion these processes are not fully understood by the staff that runs them, and can be difficult for the employees and customers to navigate.  Lean can be used to address and improve these situations.

Project Management is the application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.

The Project Management Professional (PMP) is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. You can find PMPs leading projects in nearly every country and, unlike other certifications that focus on a particular geography or domain, the PMP is truly global.

Six Sigma is a systematic process that leaders can use to identify inefficiencies and improve processes in their work areas. In today’s world, the public sector must operate leaner with less waste of time, money, and resources. This requires that errors and problems be removed and that processes be optimized and monitored to ensure success.
