Learning Project Management in English Nov 7th 2012

Globalinx delivered a special new seminar titled「Business Analysis – An Introduction」at the Hibiya Public Library on Nov 7th.
The instructor was Mark Beresford, PMP (Project Management Professional), CBAP (Certified Business Analysis Professional).
The participants learned how using Business Analysis methods before starting any project can contribute to project success, customer satisfaction, and also reduce costs and increase benefits. At the moment there is a perception that Business Analysis is only for IT projects, but it can add value to any kind of project.
According to the definition: “Business Analysis is the discipline of identifying business needs and determining solutions to business problems.” This, more general definition, allows us to use BA methods in any situation where a customer has a need and the vendor is some kind of solution provider. Especially where the solution has to fit to the unique needs of the customer very closely.

Global Training and Human Resource Development

Monitoring and reacting to trends are an important part of developing an effective training and human resource development program. The first step in this process is to be aware of distinct trends that will have an impact on the program. On February 15th in Tokyo we held an open seminar for professionals and specialists actively involved in all aspects of training, education, development, learning, and performance improvement. The open seminar was a success. With approximately 30 attendees in various industries from human resource development IT, electronics, automobile, machinery, pharmaceutical, and chemicals.

The agenda for the session was as follows:

1) Prospecting for project management trends

2) Investigating the utilization, assessing, and nurturing global talent

3) Business sense

4) Global communication skills

The most interesting session of the afternoon was delivered by Mr. Sakata, secretary-general of PMIJ. Mr. Sakata gave the opening speech and talked through the project management trends and offered advice of how to manage these trends in their own working environments.

After the conclusion of his speech, we received many requests from the attendees wanting more information and details about project management principles.

Because this free seminar was so successful, we must consider organizing another one like this in the future.
