  • Setting Up a PMO is Not for the Faint Hearted - More and more organizations are setting up a PMO (Project Management Office) to ensure successful delivery of their strategic initiatives. Setting up a PMO is one thing, but how do you ensure your PMO meets the increasing needs of the business? A value-driven PMO can increase ROI by leveraging standard tools and best practices to reduce project slippage, minimize project risks, and avoid cost overruns. Recent studies show that up to 75% of organizations that set up a PMO shut it down within three years because it did not demonstrate any added value. Join us for a 1 hour webinar where you will learn the key reasons why so many […]
  • Managing Uncertainty in Resource Availability - Resource availability is a key source of negative risk to projects.

Understand the criticality of uncertain resource availability on project outcomes. 2. Learn which approaches for getting better knowledge of resource availability will work in your organization. 3. Gain a better understanding of the pros and cons of the practices that can successfully incorporate resource availability uncertainty […]

  • Project Portfolio Management Simplified - Tuesday, April 26, 2016 – 11:00 AM PT / 2:00 PM ET Project Portfolio Management (PPM) is a strategic approach aimed at maximizing overall returns on project investments. By focusing on the “right” projects, it is expected that there will be improved organization alignment to strategic plans, as well as optimized utilization of financial and human resources. Unfortunately, there is a significant amount of misinformation in the marketplace about PPM and many organizations that have attempted to implement these practices have been unsuccessful. Of course, vendors stand by ready to “help” unsuspecting executives with snake oil claims of a “silver bullet” process or a tool to purchase to achieve PPM nirvana. […]
  • Resource Capacity Management - Organization structures in most companies today make resource management a daunting task. A lack of visibility into resource allocation and capacity, consistent prioritization and validation of actual work versus planned, contribute to this challenge. Over 50% of IT organizations surveyed use their “best guess” when determining what capacity IT has to perform projects in a given period. This webinar presents the fundamentals for creating and implementing a Resource Management Model using people, process and technology. A Resource Management Model is a set of processes that provide visibility, decision support and structure to effectively manage people in an organization. Allocating resources based on availability and fit, supported by standard processes, will […]
  • Effective PPM Change Management - Project Portfolio Management (PPM) initiatives are expected to provide significant benefit to multiple roles within an organization. Intuitively, most staff can understand the potential value in the organization, process and technology changes involved with a PPM initiative. However, the lack of change management practices through a PPM initiative’s implementation is one of the most common reasons for their failure. Symptoms of this issue can include poor executive commitment, resistance or political pressure from functional management and compliance issues with project teams. In this webinar, we will cover: Common misconceptions about PPM initiative implementations Guiding principles for successful change Steps and key communication necessary to gain buy-in from executive and functional […]
  • Practical Project Risk Management - Risks exist on projects because by definition, projects possess uncertainty. Organizations that ignore risks experience reduced project success rates due to the wasted effort and delays that result from dealing with issues that weren’t addressed. Risk management methodologies address this challenge, but tend to be too theoretical or require significant process discipline or historical data to be practical. Join us for this webinar where you will learn practical, lightweight best practices for managing risks throughout a project’s lifecycle. Benefits of managing risks through this approach include: • Improved project predictability • Improved ROI for your overall portfolio • Quantification of cost & schedule contingencies • Reduced effort spent resolving project issues   […]
