  • From Static Reports to Interactive Dashboards – and far beyond
    From Static Reports to Interactive Dashboards – and far beyond Andy Jordan, ProjectManagement.com and Jim Tisch, CA Product Marketing Recorded: Aug 30 2017 52 mins
    While project management, and project portfolio management (PPM) software solutions, have come a long way in recent years there is still one aspect of projects that lags far behind – reporting. Until now they have been little more than data summaries, providing little to no insight into projects and potentially misleading stakeholders and driving the wrong actions. Now things are changing. Join project management expert Andy Jordan as he explains how the integration of Business Intelligence (BI) tools with PPM solutions allows for:
    •Detailed trending and predictive analytics
    •Reliable decision support
    •Customized information summaries tailored to individual needs
    •Significant cost savings and improved chances of project success
    Don’t miss out on the opportunity to gain insight into the future of project reporting, and to learn how the future is already here. Delivered in Andy’s signature up tempo and thought provoking style, this is one webinar you don’t want to miss!

    Develop on a Cadence: Delivering on Demand is hard! Inbar Oren, Scaled Agile, Inc & Kathryn Kuhn, CA Technologies Recorded: Aug 29 2017 61 mins
    For any organization to be truly great at their craft they have to embrace both Agile and DevOps. Both movements are grounded in the same lean values and principles and are far more alike than they are different, yet somehow an adversarial atmosphere can exist which forces organizations to choose between the two.

    In this webinar, we will partner with Inbar Oren, SAFe Fellow and Principal Contributor at Scaled Agile, Inc, to describe how this this gap can be bridged with the latest release of SAFe 4.5, as well as, offer techniques and tips that you can implement right away.

    During this webinar, we’ll discuss:
    ● The underlying principles shared by both the DevOps and Scaling Agile movements
    ● How each of these movements can be leveraged the other
    ● How to recognize common pitfalls and traps we sometimes fall into that cause these movements to be adversaries rather than allies

  • The Future Ready PMO
    The Future Ready PMO Andy Jordan, Roffensian Consulting Inc. Recorded: Jun 29 2017 59 mins
    What is a PMO? It’s a question that many organizations are still trying to answer, but according to internationally recognized PMO and PPM expert Andy Jordan it’s a question that is outdated. He believes today’s question needs to be ‘what should a PMO be?’

    In this webinar Andy joins CA’s own Jim Tisch to explore the evolution of PMOs to ensure they are ‘future proofed’ to deliver the evolving needs of organizations. Among other topics Andy will explore:

    •The move from business focused to business driving
    •A shift in emphasis from value to cost of value
    •The evolution from strategic to differentiating
    •The steps necessary to make the change

    Delivered in Andy’s signature high energy style this webinar promises to not only challenge the way you think about project execution and the role the PMO plays, but also to think about the implications on other areas of your organization. Andy will provide a roadmap to help you start that journey of evolution and ensure your PMO is ready for the brave new project delivery world ahead.
