    - How can SMBs use cloud functions to serve an ever-impatient customer base?
    - Can SMBs realize the kind of growth and innovation through cloud services that enterprises expect?
    - And more importantly, how do SMB CIOs get their hands on all of those pretty, shiny enterprise toys?

    We’ll answer those questions and more with this expert panel of enterprise leaders who will share their strategies for success that SMBs can copy by using cloud services.

  • The Sponsor Perspective: Project Strategies for Success Recorded: Mar 20 2012 46 mins
    The Manta Group - Peter Rode
    Project managers have long faced the triple constraints of scope, schedule and cost. Yet too often when these hurdles have been overcome, the project might STILL be deemed a failure. Or the project might not add to the project manager'€™s reputation. Why not?

    Project managers deal with delivery, procurement, and people puzzles, to name a few. While real, these are not necessarily aligned with the pain points of a Project Sponsor. The project is merely the cross section where the project manager's and sponsor'€™s interests are temporarily aligned.

    We will explore the perspectives of the Project Sponsor, and assist project managers with strategies for working with sponsors of varying aptitude. This sometimes unwritten world may well hold the keys to project success, and the real results the PM is expected to deliver.

    In this 45 minute webcast you will learn:
    • The traits of a good Sponsor
    • Types of Sponsors and how to work with each
    • What Project Managers can do to line up Sponsor success
