IT Project Management

  • The Adaptive Strategy Framework The Adaptive Strategy Framework Larry Cooper Recorded: May 25 2016 55 mins
    Change is occurring at unprecedented levels which is leading to uncertainty and trepidation by leaders from the smallest to the largest of organizations. Yet there are some leaders and organizations who seem to thrive, not in spite of these circumstances, but because of them. They have learned to adapt and iterate their strategies just as agile teams do for software development. Ever wondered how to do that in your organization?

    The Adaptive Strategy Framework is your tour guide for strategic excellence in creating value based on iterative and incremental execution of Strategic Change to realize your organization’s vision and strategies. The framework encourages emergent thinking across Networked Teams and enables strategic adaptability through continuous refinement of an organization’s capabilities.

    The framework consists of Networked Teams (with roles), events, artifacts, and rules.

    All attendees will get a link during the webinar to download a free copy of the Framework. The Framework will be made freely available after the launch event though BSSNexus will retain all copyrights.
  • A 3-step agile approach to mobilize, engage and develop high-performing teams A 3-step agile approach to mobilize, engage and develop high-performing teams Charlotte Goudreault and Claude Emond Recorded: May 19 2016 51 mins
    Traditional project management approaches focus on measuring performance in terms of respecting time and cost estimates. Those measures confirm performance after the fact and do not address the main driver of project success: engaged high-performing teams.

    This webinar, co-hosted by Charlotte Goudreault and Claude Emond, will present the link between continuously engaged teams, superior performance and successful high value project delivery, as well as explain how agile values, principles and tools can help build and develop continuously engaged, high-performing project teams.

    Charlotte and Claude will also present and demonstrate, using real project data, a simple 3-step approach, based on agile techniques and inspired by their own experiences in projects, that will help you to quickly mobilize your teams (any types of teams, project-oriented or production-oriented) and keep them engaged and high-performing.

    Those who attend the webinar will be given access to a pdf copy of the presentation slides as well as to a copy of an Excel template that can be used as a support tool to monitor and improve team engagement.
  • Simplify Application Modernization with Portfolio Management Simplify Application Modernization with Portfolio Management Dave Guevara, Global Enterprise Strategy & Architecture Portfolio Solutions Leader, Ciber Recorded: May 17 2016 52 mins
    Today, business is fast-paced with more moving parts than ever before. Companies that adapt their systems quickly in responding to business needs have a distinct competitive advantage. But organizations that are saddled with legacy systems not only struggle to keep up, but they’re also likely to find themselves on the fringe of relevance. Learn how to extend CA PPM to solve these complex modernization challenges.

    Which of these modernization challenges are you dealing with now?

    •Modernization initiatives exist for our major systems, but we need “the plan” for what else must change too.

    •Our systems are highly customized so we are “stuck”! How do we get unstuck without disrupting the business and get to our target state?

    •There are a few hundred applications, many are too expensive to maintain and take too long to change, but how?

    •Groups of large applications (e.g. mainframe, ERP, custom suites) need to be modernized to meet current business needs, but big bang will take too long, cost too much and “temporary” business solutions will just keep adding to today’s complexity and cost.

    •Our best talent, who should be innovating, are stuck maintaining what we have and fixing it as best they can to meet business needs.

    Join us for a BrightTalk webinar on Tuesday, May 17th at 10am PT where CA’s alliance partner Ciber will discuss how organizations are using portfolio management methods to solve these difficult and complex application modernization and rationalization challenges.

  • How to Improve Service Delivery Performance with SIAM How to Improve Service Delivery Performance with SIAM Chris Pope, CSO, ServiceNow & Dan Stavola Enterprise Service Automation, Ernst & Young Recorded: May 17 2016 60 mins
    Managing the performance of multiple suppliers isn’t easy, especially if each has a unique sourcing agreement. Lack of visibility to metrics, issue tracking and subpar reporting across the ecosystem impacts performance as a whole—and not in a good way.
    But this doesn’t have to happen. With a SIAM framework, you can redefine the way you work with your suppliers to drive the quality of service up, while bringing costs down.
    Join our webinar to learn ways to improve supplier performance, including a firsthand success story from guest presenter Ernst & Young. From simplifying supplier management to providing more visibility and control, you’ll learn:
    · What it takes to make your SIAM project a success with outcome-based results

    · Best practices for on-boarding, off-boarding, measurement, and bid stages for SIAM

    · How Ernst & Young leveraged ServiceNow to deliver their SIAM solution and provide supplier visibility, reporting, and accountability for a major US bank

    · Platform integration, across instance bonding: data exchange, ticket sharing, and reporting
  • A Scientific Approach: Data Exploration in Preparation for Data Modeling A Scientific Approach: Data Exploration in Preparation for Data Modeling Noam Engelberg Recorded: May 11 2016 49 mins
    Data exploration is the first step in data analysis and typically involves summarizing the main characteristics of a dataset. It is commonly conducted using visual analytics tools.

    Before a formal data analysis can be conducted, the analyst must know how many cases are in the dataset, what variables are included, how many missing observations there are and what general hypotheses the data is likely to support. An initial exploration of the dataset helps answer these questions by familiarizing analysts about the data with which they are working.

    Join Noam Engelberg as he walks you through the 5 best practices for Data Exploration in preparation for Data Modeling.

    The Q2 2015 Global Agile Software Application Development Online Survey from Forrester Research, Inc. shows that a third of firms have been practicing agile for more than five years, and 54% have successfully scaled their Agile practices to more than half their teams.*

    Yet practicing agile, by itself, isn’t guaranteed to deliver business value. Many companies with experienced agile teams still aren’t seeing the results they’d hoped for. Are your agile practices improving or flatlining? What good are productivity and velocity if they’re not enhancing your bottom line?

    As the speed of business accelerates and more competitors adopt agile, grassroots approaches just won’t cut it anymore. That’s why you should join our webinar on April 14 , at 10:00 AM (UK time/11am (CET) with CA Technologies Transformation Consultant or CA Agile Central, Andy Sales, and guest presenter Diego Lo Giudice, Forrester Analyst in Application Development + Delivery. You’ll learn how to apply the best practices found by both Forrester’s survey and CA Agile Transformation Consulting to give you a competitive edge and deliver business results.

    •Find out why it’s essential to connect delivery to your portfolio (upstream) and your operations (downstream) with cross-functional teams

    •Learn how to focus on cultural change to drive sustainable behavioral change

    •Get your company practicing continuous improvement with measurements that drive results

  • Adopt IT Operations Analytics to Make Better Decisions, Faster Adopt IT Operations Analytics to Make Better Decisions, Faster Donnie Berkholz and Erin Avery Recorded: Apr 28 2016 53 mins
    In the digital era, IT has an extraordinary opportunity to become a data-driven business partners helping the business achieve its goals of revenue generation, cost reduction, and risk mitigation. However, IT reporting and analytics have historically focused on descriptive and diagnostic work – describing what happened and why. The speed and agility of the digital revolution demands the ability to not only describe what happened in the past but to predict what might happen in the future and to make recommendations about what should be done.

    IT operations analytics offers IT organizations a path to evolve the use of machine, operational and business data for more effective, forward-looking prioritization and decision-making. And in a recent BMC sponsored survey, 79% of IT pros said they would be more effective at their job if they had access to non-IT sources of data to help them make decisions in business context.

    Join Donnie Berkholz, 451 Research, and Erin Avery, BMC Software, for a high energy, fast paced discussion on adaptive, real-time analytics that any IT operations organization can adopt to become highly prescriptive and predictive.
  • Total Application Life Cycle Management Total Application Life Cycle Management Rick Morris, President, R2 Consulting Recorded: Apr 20 2016 50 mins
    In the application economy, every team needs different information in order to be effective:

    •Executives need high level portfolios / programs to be able to prioritize work to keep up with the competitive demand
    •Project Managers need project schedules, effort estimates, time tracking , and issues & risks to accurately manage project health and update status

  • Best Practices In Intelligent Content Best Practices In Intelligent Content Robert Rose, Digital Clarity Group Recorded: Apr 13 2016 55 mins
    Robert Rose, Chief Strategy Officer at the Content Marketing Institute and this year's keynote speaker at the Intelligent Content Conference, shares 4 key takeaways from the event.

    If content is king, intelligent content is the ace up your sleeve. Smart organizations are driving business impact through the application of intelligent content principles. Intelligent content is modular, structured, meta-data rich, reusable and format-free, which means you can deliver it to the right audience, in any channel, at any time.

    In this webinar Robert Rose covers best practices for intelligent content and shares how you can get started with managing content at speed and at scale.

    We’ll Discuss:
    1. How to look for tools and technology that support the creation of intelligent content
    2. Looking at the “content model” - the connective tissue between strategy and implementation
    3. Developing the intelligent content and engineering strategy
    4. How to start small and quickly expand your content throughout the organization and the buyer’s journey

    As businesses start to behave more like media companies, there emerges a seemingly overwhelming challenge: how to keep up. The only way we can keep up is if we start thinking about the structure of our digital content experiences so we can do the same.

    Who should attend: Digital Marketers, Content Strategists, IT decision makers and anyone interested in the vastly evolving marketing technology landscape.

    This webinar is brought to you by Hippo CMS and Kanban Solutions.

  • Shorten your investment funding cycles with PPM and SAFe - 1 PDU Shorten your investment funding cycles with PPM and SAFe - 1 PDU Richard Knaster, SAFe Principal Consultant Recorded: Apr 7 2016 45 mins
    Unconstrained customer requirements combined with technology disrupters in the cloud, big data, analytics, social and mobile is the new norm for businesses in the App Economy. With rapidly changing technologies fostered by transformation and competitive threats, product and application lifecycles are shortened creating the need for changes in how development work is funded and executed on. To shorten these life cycles, the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe)® describes the transformational patterns -from project based funding and control to Lean-Agile budgeting and self-managing Agile Release Trains.
    Richard Knaster, SAFe Principal Consultant, will examine how established strategic themes guide the enterprise investments and strategy for the relevant Agile and traditional waterfall programs. Richard will highlight the need to fund and monitor value streams and teams as organizations move away from top down budgeting to Lean-Agile budgeting. The key take ways for this session are:

    •Value streams not projects should be identified, fostered, funded, monitored and continuously improved
    •PPM needs to fulfill the investment funding responsibilities for both Agile and traditional waterfall programs during this period of transformation
    •Value stream insights utilizing KPIs are required from a portfolio and life-cycle context

    Organizational agility requires a supportive culture and a shift in how work is viewed and approached. Our findings focus on the value placed on the cultural elements of high organizational agility. A highly developed culture of agility exists when value is placed on ideals and behaviors such as collaboration, diversity, communication, creativity, transparency, and inquisitive thinking. Organizations that establish the following framework are better positioned to enable agility:

    •Supportive Culture: Identifying the value of openness, transparency, respect, knowledge, improvement, and adaptation
    •Strategic Flexibility: Capturing opportunities and responding quickly to varying demands
    •Collective Leadership: Sharing a common view of strategy
    •Capable People: Applying the right talent management resources

  • Agile Capitalization for Greater Business Value - 1PDU Agile Capitalization for Greater Business Value - 1PDU Pat Reed, Agile Alliance Director and Catherine Connor, Portfolio Agility Solutions Specialist at CA Recorded: Apr 7 2016 45 mins
    With disruptive technology advances, software assets play an increasingly important role in creating a competitive advantage. It’s time for organizations to recognize and manage business software as a strategic corporate asset. To keep up with the speed of business, companies turn to agile practices to deliver better customer value faster. Challenge: agile software development is too often misunderstood and misreported, impacting taxation, higher volatility in Profit and Loss (P&L) statements, and dramatic, unnecessary staff cuts in an economy where talent retention is paramount to foster innovation. To avoid those negative implications, companies can evolve their financial reporting practices to leverage the financial advantage of agile so they can benefit from the significantly increased tax savings and investor interest associated with agile capitalization. This session will unravel the benefits of agile capitalization and explain how to appropriately interpret and apply generally accepted accounting standard (GAAP SOP 98-1 and ASC 350-40) so your organization can increase its agile adoption to deliver more business value faster to customers.
