    • How to look under the bonnet of pension freedom income planning tools How to look under the bonnet of pension freedom income planning tools Andrew Storey, Technical Sales Director, eValue Recorded: Sep 9 2015 2:00 pm UTC 43 mins
    • Pensions freedoms in the UK are now nearly 6 months old. Advisers have been adding value by helping clients make an informed decision on the choices available, but are all tools that are available to help in this process equally fit for purpose?

      Understanding how the tools work and their limitations is a critical step both in providing compliant and robust advice, and in explaining the results to clients.

      eValue explains the methodologies and limitations of the income planning tools provided to advisers to help advisers ask the right questions to become comfortable with the tools selected. The webinar covers:
      - Why the modelling risks are so important in post retirement income planning

      - The main types of forecast methodology and their limitations

      - What to look out for when choosing your income planning tool

    • Creating a Culture of Continuity: Business Continuity Planning & Risk Management Creating a Culture of Continuity: Business Continuity Planning & Risk Management Eric Kretz, Director, Continuity of Operations (COOP) Division, National Continuity Programs (NCP) Recorded: Jul 22 2015 2:00 pm UTC 49 mins
    • Continuity planning is simply the good business practice of ensuring the execution of essential functions through all circumstances, and it is a fundamental responsibility of public institutions and private entities responsible to their stakeholders. Continuity planning should not be a separate and compartmentalized function performed by independent cells of a few planners in each organization. Organizations must fully integrate continuity into all aspects of an organization’s daily operations, thus creating a “culture of continuity.”

      The COOP presentation will:

      1. Provide an understanding of Continuity Planning and Risk Management,
      2. Explain the importance of a viable Continuity capability,
      3. Emphasize the need for a viable Continuity capability in all organizations that enable organizations to continue their essential functions across a broad spectrum of emergencies.

      In addition to providing an overview of Continuity of Operations, the COOP presentation will also:

       Educate Federal, State, territorial, tribal, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations, and emergency management practitioners on the importance of integrating Continuity into daily operations, functions, plans, and mission areas.
       Emphasize the Federal Government’s Policy requiring Federal agencies to be prepared for unpredictable threats such as earthquakes, accidents, sabotage, and terrorism. 
       Discuss the importance for State, territorial, tribal, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations to be prepared for unpredictable disruption of business operations. 
       Provide States, territories, tribes, local government jurisdictions, private sector organizations, and businesses with assistance, guidance, knowledge, networking, resources, and tools needed to succeed.

    • Resource Management & Planning for Successful Clinical Trials Resource Management & Planning for Successful Clinical Trials Rick Morris, President of R2 Consulting & Edward Davis, Director of Advisory & Solutions at Kforce Inc. Recorded: Nov 11 2015 6:00 pm UTC 47 mins
    • Clinical Trial planning and resource management can be one of the most complex management challenges facing life sciences organizations and CROs. Often these organizations are managing hundreds of studies across thousands of sites and investigators making it extremely difficult to understand how and where to deploy costly clinical resources. With the variability of the studies and the massive competition in the industry, finding a solution to understand how and where all clinical resources are being utilized and a solution with the ability to perform predictive analysis on this information to improve site and investigator selection can give companies a competitive edge.

      CA PPM for Clinical Research Planning from R2 Consulting gives you all of the tools needed to perform predictive analysis, plan and manage resource utilization, lower costs on expenses, and gather valuable information to assist in recruitment planning for sites and investigators.

      Join us for a webinar on Tuesday, 11/11 to learn how several life sciences and Clinical Research Organizations (CROs) have been able to leverage CA PPM for Clinical Research Planning to lower the complexity associated with clinical trial design resulting in reduced costs and more effective clinical trial management.

    • Transition Planning and Support: Secret Sauce Transition Planning and Support: Secret Sauce Kenneth ("kengon") Gonzalez, Senior Advisor, Cask Recorded: Sep 15 2015 4:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • In this session, we will continue our detailed investigation of the ITIL® framework, as we take on Transition Planning and Support. It’s one of the most recognized processes from the Service Transition book.

      Service Transition is a seriously undervalued part of the IT services lifecycle, as it stands between design/development and “Business as Usual” (BAU) operations. While there is consensus that this is an important part of the equation, there is frighteningly little consensus about what good operating practices look like. In many cases, people on both sides of the Dev/Ops gulf struggle with where responsibilities start/stop and how to mediate the differences. In this session, we’ll dig down into the guidance to understand the transition stage and its fit within the lifecycle. As we do, we’ll talk about some practical steps you can take to reduce the associated uncertainty with and increase the number of successful transitions.

      During this presentation, we’ll talk about:

      How Transition Planning and Support can be useful to you beyond what is written in the ITIL publications;
      What role Service Transition and Support plays in improving your current practices;
      The different types of planning and how they fit together;
      What you should pay attention to, to ensure you are getting all you can from your Service Transition activities.
      Register now - join us to find out how to have Transition Planning and Support deliver better results for your organization.
