  • Project Portfolio Management is often seen—and sold—as a tool for IT. PPM is embraced by IT as a way of gaining control of their world to focus on managing scarce resources and making or prioritizing decisions. Guess what, IT isn't the only team with scare resources, making bad decisions and no priorities. If a company is only using PPM for IT they are missing the real value. Managing all types of business strategies through projects is a must for every business, and successful customers have realized the real value of PPM to make better choices, balance opportunities and meet goals.

    In this webinar, Mark Mullaly examines how the role of PPM can be expanding and why PPM isn’t a tool for just one part of the organization; it is a way of thinking and working that can benefit everyone.
  • Every company needs to be a technology company to survive in the application economy. Business and customer expectations are immediate and changing on a daily basis. This continuous and disruptive flow of new demand requires an effective approach for managing and consuming centralized resource management insights. Organizations have improved their investment review and approval process but it is more important to determine if an organization “can” take on the desired effort.

    This Webcast will focus on how resource management processes play a key role in potentially providing the insights necessary to answer the “can we” question that must be asked before allowing any new project or program for inclusion in the enterprise portfolio.

    •Do we have the resource capacity?
    •Do we have the resource capability?
    •Can we supplement our existing resources with 3rd-party resources?
    •What are the resource cost comparisons and ramifications?
  • There’s no escaping change. And organizations that cling to the “tried and true”—whether it be existing business models and processes or perceptions of market conditions and customer preferences—are doomed to continually play catch-up in the marketplace.

    But, even recognizing the inevitability of change isn’t the same as managing the challenges it presents.

    Change is opportunity. Successful organizations embrace change and leverage the outcomes into growth and competitive advantage.
