MasterClass #1: Basic Project Management with Huong Hoang of Royal Philips

Online Event
Amsterdam, Netherlands

Basic Project Management was the first event in the #MasterClass series organized by Viet Make It. on October 31st, 2020.

Viet Make It. would like to thank our speakers, Huong Hoang and Van Bui, as well as our attendees for the engagement and feedback for our future events!

If you missed out, don’t worry! You can contact us (vietmakeit@gmail.com) for access to the full event recording. Only participants receive our materials (relevant project frameworks) after the events.

The fundamentals of end-to-end project cycle were introduced, including (1) Project Initiation (2) Planning (3) Execution (4) Monitoring (5) Closing. In this masterclass, we particularly focus on the first two phases in order to demonstrate our participants with project charter and project planning/scheduling methodology.

A simulation on a real-life project to create a patient-scheduling software for a hospital is assigned to the attendees to exemplify and put into use some of the most popular project frameworks. The objective is to help participants grasp a brief understanding of what is expected from a project manager in the first two phases of the projects and endorse communication, which is the most sought-after skill of a project manager.

Unfamiliar topics such as how to identify business objectives, mapping project stakeholders, agile vs waterfall project management, risk management attracted a good number of questions from the attendees.

Most of the feedback respondents were impressed with informative content and applicable frameworks and participants express their future interests in our upcoming events.

Our participants provide many positive and contributive feedbacks:

“Informative”

“Practical”

“More engagement”

“More time for Q&A”

 

To continue our MasterClass series and build upon the basics of project management skill, our upcoming classes, Stakeholder Management, will be a complementary topic but also essential for professional development. The core pillar of a business/project/assignment is the “people” factor. Without stakeholders, you are running the risk of losing a partner who can help realize the results and missing the opportunity to score a promoter at your workplace. We are looking forward to seeing you at our next event!
