The Meeting Planning Process: A Guide to Planning Successful Meetings by certified meeting professional Mary Jo Wiseman offers a common-sense approach to managing the meeting planning process based on the knowledge and experience she garnered over a 20-plus-year career as a corporate meeting and event coordinator. The author’s systematic approach to project management helped her to get and stay focused on the task at hand while handling multiple details, projects, and deadlines throughout her career, and she wants to share her secrets for success with others.The author firmly believes it is not just one person who makes a meeting or event happen, but rather a well-led team of dedicated, enthusiastic, talented individuals who come together to do what they do best to help organizations exceed program objectives and make them shine. It is the process or system used to get started that can either keep you on track or send you off the rails. This guide offers a practical overview of the entire planning process for people just starting out in the business or meeting-planning veterans alike and offers keen insights and valuable tips to help create the perfect experience for their audience by staying true to the basic elements of the planning process. It is intended to lead people through the proper steps and the sequence of tasks involved in planning a meeting such as: Establishing a planning or design teamDeveloping an overall planBudgetingSite selectionCommunicationsContract reviewAnd moreThe guide also includes handy templates developed by the author - a meeting timeline; overall meeting plan; and request for proposal, as well as descriptions and diagrams of possible room setups.

A guide for perplexed software professionals who have heard the buzz about agile methodologies, but want to separate the hype from reality. Helps organization achieve the speed of agility without sacrificing the discipline of process For quick learning and easy reference, the margins contain a "fast track" summary of the material Forewords by Grady Booch, Alistair Cockburn, and Watts Humphrey! Features + Benefits A guide for perplexed software professionals who have heard the buzz about agile methodologies, but want to separate the hype from reality. ° Helps organization achieve the speed of agility without sacrificing the discipline of process ° For quick learning and easy reference, the margins contain a fast track summary of the material ° Forewords by Grady Booch, Alistair Cockburn, and Watts Humphrey! Backcover Being a certified bibliophile and a professional geek, I have more shelf space devoted to books on software methods than any reasonable human should possess. Balancing Agility and Discipline has a prominent place in that section of my library, because it has helped me sort through the noise and smoke of the current method wars.--From the Foreword by Grady BoochThis is an outstanding book on an emotionally complicated topic. I applaud the authors for the care with which they have handled the subject.--From the Foreword by Alistair CockburnThe authors have done a commendable job of identifying five critical factors--personnel, criticality, size, culture, and dynamism--for creating the right balance of flexibility and structure. Their thoughtful analysis will help developers who must sort through the agile-disciplined debate, giving them guidance to create the right mix for their projects.--From the Foreword by Arthur Pyster Agility and discipline: These apparently opposite attributes are, in fact, complementary values in software development. Plan-driven developers must also be agile; nimble developers must also be disciplined. The key to success is finding the right balance between the two, which will vary from project to project according to the circumstances and risks involved. Developers, pulled toward opposite ends by impassioned arguments, ultimately must learn how to give each value its due in their particular situations. Balancing Agility and Discipline sweeps aside the rhetoric, drills down to the operational core concepts, and presents a constructive approach to defining a balanced software development strategy. The authors expose the bureaucracy and stagnation that mark discipline without agility, and liken agility without discipline to unbridled and fruitless enthusiasm. Using a day in the life of two development teams and ground-breaking case studies, they illustrate the differences and similarities between agile and plan-driven methods, and show that the best development strategies have ways to combine both attributes. Their analysis is both objective and grounded, leading finally to clear and practical guidance for all software professionals--showing how to locate the sweet spot on the agility-discipline continuum for any given project. 0321186125B10212003 Foreword by Grady Booch.

Event Management is a professional field of practice that requires sophisticated skills in strategic planning and analysis, risk assessment, marketing, budgeting, cash flow planning, event proposal development and many other topics. The project nature of events, as well as the range of risks they carry (including financial risk), ensures that skilled and knowledgeable management personnel are required in the industry. Indeed, many major projects in today's corporate world are one-off events requiring these skills. Therefore, public and commercial events and projects are increasingly taking the step of appointing professionally trained personnel to senior positions.
