  • VÄLTÄ SKANDAALI! Miten ehkäistä ei-toivottua käytöstä organisaatiossa?
    VÄLTÄ SKANDAALI! Miten ehkäistä ei-toivottua käytöstä organisaatiossa? Niina Ratsula Recorded: Sep 18 2018 62 mins
    Mediassa uutisoidaan jatkuvasti organisaatioista, joiden edustamat henkilöt ovat toimineet ei-toivotusti – joko tahattomasti tai tarkoituksellisesti. Aseman ja vallan väärinkäyttöä, epäilyttäviä transaktioita, intressiristiriitoja, harkitsemattomia lausuntoja lehdistölle, syrjintäväitteitä, ja lista jatkuu päivittäin.

    Jokainen organisaatio on altis skandaaleille, joista taloudellisten ja juridisten seuraamusten lisäksi vaikutukset yrityksen maineeseen ja yhteistyökumppanuuksiin voivat olla kohtalokkaita.

    Paras keino suojautua näiltä riskeiltä on ymmärtää oman organisaatiosi kannalta relevantit riskit sekä varautua niiden toteutumiseen: Mitkä ovat tilanteita, joissa meidän johto tai muu henkilöstö voisi toimia ei-toivotusti – joko tahattomasti tai tarkoituksella?

    Tässä maksuttomassa webinaarissa opit, mitkä ovat parhaat käytännöt ei-toivotun käytöksen ehkäisyyn ja skandaalien välttämiseen. Kuulet myös vinkkejä miten toimia tilanteissa, joissa ei-toivottu käytös tai skandaali ehkäisystä huolimatta realisoituu.

  • Assessing Cyber Risk - Challenges and Solutions
    Assessing Cyber Risk - Challenges and Solutions Stephen Head, CISSP, CISM, CISA - Director, IT Risk Advisary Services, Experis Finance Recorded: Sep 12 2018 60 mins
    Managing cyber risk in today’s digital environment is extremely challenging, whether your organization is public, private or governmental. In response to the growing frequency and severity of cyber-attacks, many organizations have decided it’s time to focus more of their efforts on cyber risk, starting with a cyber risk assessment. This approach to proactively dealing with the risk of cyber-attacks increases the organization’s awareness of the potential impacts and costs, and enables them to take actions that reduce the overall risk to the organization, minimize the impact of cyber-attacks, and more predictably ensure the continuity of essential services.

    This webinar will provide a high-level overview of assessing cyber risk and explore the following:

    •Threats and root causes of breaches
    •The changing regulatory landscape
    •Security frameworks and tools

  • Ymmärrä aivojasi - onnistu yhteistyössä!
    Ymmärrä aivojasi - onnistu yhteistyössä! Anjariitta Savolainen ja Päivi Äijälä Recorded: Sep 7 2018 41 mins
    Aloitamme perusteista, mitä jokaisen olisi hyvä tietää aivoista, jotta yhteistyö ja vuorovaikutus onnistuisi. Emme sukella syvälle neurotieteeseen vaan tarjoamme ajatuksenruokaa sekä asiantuntijoille että johtajille, siitä miten toimit ja vaikutat aivoystävällisesti.

    Aivojen toiminnasta tiedetään entistä enemmän, ja kuitenkin aika vähän. Ihmisen painekäyttäytyminen vaikuttaa toimintaan ja päätöksentekoon tiukoissa tilanteissa. Painetilanteessa rationaalinen ajattelu loppuu - jokaisella. Painetilanteet voivat olla erilaisia ja painekäyttäytymisen erotkin voivat olla suuria. Mutta ihmisaivot toimivat samoilla periaatteilla - skannaamme koko ajan onko tilanne uhka vai mahdollisuus, vaikka emme sitä tiedostaisi.

    Webinaari rakentuu neljästä osasta:

    - mitä meissä tapahtuu painetilanteessa ja miten se näkyy käyttäytymisessä; miksi on hyvä tunnistaa painekäyttäytyminen
    - miten painekäyttäytymiseen pääsee kiinni
    - miten katkaiset painekäyttäytymisen
    - miten luot rakentavaa yhteistyötä aivoystävällisesti
  • Managing Resources Across Multiple Projects Made Easy
    Managing Resources Across Multiple Projects Made Easy Rick Morris, R2 Consulting and Alf Abuhajleh, CA Technologies Recorded: Sep 6 2018 52 mins
    Resource management - ensuring projects are given the right people, with the right skills and the right availability to do the job.

    Join agile project management expert Rick Morris of R2 Consulting and CA Technologies to learn how people in charge of key resources can overcome common issues such as:
    •Team members assigned to multiple projects, making it hard to see who's working on what and when.
    •Developers track time in one system, contractors in another.
    •Resources with varying experiences and expertise are scattered around the globe.
  • 8 Ways to Get the Most Out of Oracle Retail
    8 Ways to Get the Most Out of Oracle Retail Tony Beeston, Product Marketing Manager, CA Technologies Recorded: Sep 6 2018 51 mins
    Implementing a core retail solution can be challenging and take months or even years to complete. Then, when the project is finally done, you are left dealing with daily, weekly and monthly operational processing, which consumes vast amounts of time and resources.

  • Compliance in Motion: Aligning Data Governance Initiatives with Business Objecti
    Compliance in Motion: Aligning Data Governance Initiatives with Business Objecti Paige Bartley, Senior Analyst, Data and Enterprise Intelligence, Ovum + Cameron Tovey, Head of Information Security, Confluen Recorded: Sep 5 2018 53 mins
    There’s a prevailing enterprise perception that compliance with data protection regulations and standards, such as General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the EU, Payment Card Industry (PCI), International Standards Organization (ISO) and many others is a burden: limiting the leverage of data. However, the core requirement of compliance—better control of data—has multiple downstream benefits. When compliance objectives are aligned with existing business objectives, the business can experience net gain.

    For many organizations that want to adopt streaming data, strengthening their governance protocol is a key requirement. While this certainly poses a challenge for data protection regulations and standards, it also limits the potential of data in broader enterprise initiatives that look to maximize the value of information.

    Learning objectives:
    -Understand how data compliance can be a facilitator of existing business objectives rather than a burden
    -Find out how to align existing business initiatives with compliance initiatives for maximum business benefit
    -Learn about the place of streaming data and data-in-motion in the compliance effort
    -Identify governance and tooling needs, existing controls and how they apply to new and emerging technology
    -Discover your options for improving governance

  • Tarkoituksenmukainen itseorganisoituvuus - ei anarkiaa, ei näkymättömiä sähköait
    Tarkoituksenmukainen itseorganisoituvuus - ei anarkiaa, ei näkymättömiä sähköait Mikko Korkala Recorded: Sep 4 2018 28 mins
    Itseorganisoituminen ja valtuuttaminen ovat varmasti keskeisimpiä ketterään kehittämiseen liittyviä termejä, ja täysin aiheesta. Organisaation ketteryys syntyy tietysti osaltaan asianmukaisista kehitysmenetelmistä, mutta jos haluamme olla oikeasti ketteriä ja reagoida muutoksiin nopeasti ja tehokkaasti vastuuta on jaettava niille tahoille, joilla on aiheesta paras mahdollinen ymmärrys. Tämä tarkoittaa käytännössä sitä, että esimiesasemassa olevien henkilöiden ei ole tarkoituksenmukaista päättää asioista itse vaan paras tietämys löytyy vaikkapa projektitiimin jäseniltä.

    Itseorganisoituvuuteen ja autonomiaan liittyy myös monia myyttejä, uskomuksia ja luonnollisesti huolenaiheita. Tarkoituksenmukainen itseorganisoituvuus ei ole kaaosta ja anarkiaa jossa organisaatio menettää kaiken kontrollin jäseniensä toimintaan, vaan hallittua ja selkeää päätöksentekoa sovituissa rajoissa organisaation eri tasoilla.

    Tässä maksuttomassa webinaarissa käsittelemme itseorganisoituvuutta ja sen mahdollistamista organisaatiossa tehokkaasti, tarkoituksenmukaisesti ja turvallisesti.

    Itseorganisoituvuus, delegointi ja valtuutus ovat yksi Management 3.0 koulutusten moduuleista. Tässä koulutuksessa luonnollisesti syvennytään tähän aiheeseen syvällisemmin, ja koulutus kokonaisuudessaan antaa erinomaisen pohjan modernin tuotekehitysorganisaation toiminnan johtamiseen ja kehittämiseen.

    Mikko Korkala on pitkän linjan tuotekehitysammattilainen. Hän aloitti uransa ohjelmistosuunnittelijana, mutta löysi kutsumuksensa päädyttyään puolivahingossa ketterien- ja Lean – menetelmien pariin vuonna 2002. Mikko on työskennellyt niin kehitystiimien kuin ylimmän johdonkin kanssa ja lähestymiskulmat ketterään tekemiseen ovat sisältäneet valmentajan, kouluttajan, uusien kehitysprosessien laatijan ja tutkijan rooleja. Tutkimuksellisesta näkökulmasta Mikko on yksi ensimmäisistä, jotka aloittivat ketterien menetelmien systemaattisen tutkimisen ja kehittämisen Suomessa.

    Enterprise preparation for AI has centered almost exclusively on data prep and data science talent. While without data there would be no AI, enterprises that fail to ready the broader organization, chiefly people, process, and principles, don’t just stunt their capacity for good AI, they risk sunk investment, jeopardize employee trust, brand backlash, or worse.

    Ensuring sustainable deployment starts with assessing enterprise data strategy, aligning myriad stakeholders, technological feasibility assessment, and a coordinated approach to ethics.

    SecureOps:Driving Unprecedented Security & Operational Results Tony Sager and Mark Kedgley Oct 11 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    The security industry as we know it is broken and the problem is getting worse. We now must look at security through a different set of spectacles. Ones that allow us to manage more by fact and not fiction. Simply put…there are no silver bullets to solve this problem! We have to stop following bright shiny objects and get back to “Basics”.

    This webinar is the first in a series delivered by the Center for Internet Security (CIS) and NNT intended to help educate and articulate how security and operations need to leverage one another to achieve common IT goals. The content of this webinar will provide very specific data points about a SecureOps strategy and the benefits from such an approach. More importantly, it will articulate a framework that prioritizes IT controls that begin to move from descriptive to one that is prescriptive and is prioritized based on risk mitigation and overall defensible effectiveness.

    Join Tony Sager, Senior Vice President and Chief Evangelist for the CIS and Founder of the Secure Controls Framework and Mark Kedgley, Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of New Net Technologies in an interactive webinar where we will:

    • Provide the data point(s) that support why SecureOps effort is necessary and long overdue – Manage by Fact Not Fiction
    • Understand what are the common denominators between security and operations - Where 1+1=3
    • Articulate how the CIS “basic” controls are essentially operational controls – The Common Denominators
    • Discuss how the CIS and NNT can help an organization prioritize efforts where 20% of the effort delivers 80% of the value – The Cliffs Notes

    Register now and get a free copy of the new SANS Security Leadership Poster and a fully-functional extended trial of NNT Change Tracker Gen7 to see how easily you can embrace SecureOps in your environment.

  • Managing Resources Across Multiple Projects Made Easy
    Managing Resources Across Multiple Projects Made Easy Rick Morris, R2 Consulting and Alf Abuhajleh, CA Technologies Oct 30 2018 10:00 am UTC 52 mins
    Resource management - ensuring projects are given the right people, with the right skills and the right availability to do the job. This is often easier said than done when you lack a single view of what people are doing today and what’s planned for tomorrow. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

    Join agile project management expert Rick Morris of R2 Consulting and CA Technologies to learn how people in charge of key resources can overcome common issues such as:
    •Team members assigned to multiple projects, making it hard to see who's working on what and when.
    •Developers track time in one system, contractors in another.
    •Resources with varying experiences and expertise are scattered around the globe.
  • Become a Purpose-Driven Organization
    Become a Purpose-Driven Organization Shannon Mason, VP of Product Management and Val Zolyak, Director of Product Management Dec 11 2018 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In today’s fast-paced, disruption-prone markets, it’s not enough to simply optimize for feature delivery. Your entire organization must be aligned around the right outcomes and empowered to achieve them, because velocity and throughput count for nothing if you’re not delivering real customer value.

    In order to do this, your data has to be transparent and actionable, enabling stakeholders at all levels to see how their efforts are impacting the business. Team members need the autonomy to make informed decisions about how their work gets done, while those at the program level need to see dynamic data roll-ups and help remove barriers that create the dreaded “work about work.”

    Leadership needs clarity to ensure that the organization’s strategy is delivering on key objectives and producing high-value outcomes.

    During this webinar, Shannon Mason, VP of Product Management and Val Zolyak, Director of Product Management, will discuss how purpose-driven organizations can:
    •Align teams and empower them to innovate
    •Plan quickly, continuously and confidently
    •Create an outcome-oriented culture

    It is this shared understanding of work that helps to create an outcome-oriented culture, where everyone is accountable for delivering value instead of just velocity.
