ISS03 : Who Owns the Float?
Wednesday, 31 January
1 hour, 15 minutes

Speaker: Ondiappan Arivazhagan, PMP, SSGB

Presentation Style: Lecture
Level: Intermediate
Target Audience: Project Management Professional (PMP®)
                                                    Presented In: English

   This Presentation has been endorsed by the following PMI Specific Interest Groups (SIG):

      - Information Technology & Telecommunications SIG
      - College of Scheduling
      - Risk SIG

      - Design, Procurement & Construction SIG
      - Students of PM

Learning Objectives:

  • After the presentation, attendees will be able to realise the importance of float management, focus their attention on float, negotiate better terms with other stakeholders, reduce schedule slippage risks and manage the schedule targets more effectively.

   Project managers are expected to handle or manage various types of contracts with owners and vendors whilst managing their projects. In the Critical Path Method of scheduling, the project's deadlines are at high risk if floats are not managed properly. As float gives some flexibility in scheduling the resources, very often the question comes, who owns the float?

   This presentation is aimed at identifying the possible stakeholders to it, analysing the possible ownership claims of various stakeholders of the project and suggesting a few possible solutions.

Please note that the congress proceedings are conducted in English.

International Project Management Day Celebration on 4th Nov'06

       IIPM celebrated International Project Management Day on 4th Nov -06 at Hotel Quality Inn Sabari to commemorate the practicing project management professionals around the world and to create awareness about growing need of project management professionals in IT/Construction/Entertainment industry.

      The Chief Guest of the event was Dr. Shalini, Ph.D, a leading Psychiatrist. Initially Mr.O.Arivazhagan, PMP, CEO, IIPM welcomed the gathering. In his inaugural address Mr.Arivazhagan emphasized the importance of the role women play in project management. He pointed out two special skills that women display compared to men in managing projects. The two qualities that he observed were consistency in performance and commitment to the job under taken. Later, surprisingly this was reiterated by Dr.Shalini, in her address with the scientific facts. Dr.Shalini, in her address excellently brought-out the advantages of employing women in project management with the help of the structure of the male and female brains. Among the advantages she cited in favor women were better organizational skills, consistent performance, holistic thinking, to name a few. She also touched upon the disadvantages the women posses as managers. According to Dr.Shalini, women lack in penetrative thinking, single minded devotion and in risk taking, to name a few. However, it was interesting to note that the law of success demands 35% hard skills and 65% soft skills. The later being the forte of women, women seem to possess natural managerial skills than men through their nature endowed soft skills.

      Mr.Sridharan, PMP, Analyst, World Bank and Mrs. Aarathi Parthasarathi, Asst. Vice President, ABN Amro Bank also spoke on the topic. Later, Mr.Arivazhagan had tête-à-tête with Dr. Shalini where in many myths about women in project management was broken. The participants had a nice time in learning the managerial talent and the potential women have in work place. Prizes were distributed to excellent contributors to project management community. Finally, Mr. Shiva, Admin Executive, IIPM thanked the organizers, participants for a wonderful evening.
