    • When Alignment Isn’t Enough: Ways To Turbo Charge Your Planning Process When Alignment Isn’t Enough: Ways To Turbo Charge Your Planning Process Guest speaker: Gordon Barnett, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research Recorded: Mar 3 2015 4:00 pm UTC 47 mins
    • The C-level suite agrees that aligning business and technology objectives are an essential element in achieving what’s necessary to win, retain and serve their customers, however, are they putting their money where their mouths are? The data tells a different story. According to Forrester Research, while two thirds of CIOs and CMOs agree that the CMO is an active participant in strategic planning, the perception of CIO involvement varies significantly between the two roles. Moreover, half of surveyed PMO leaders feel they have all the tools in place to competently manage the portfolio pipeline. Companies are routinely adopting practices to deliver faster and better; it’s time for executives to do the same. Effectively managing a portfolio that enables business leaders to achieve their strategic objectives requires tooling that supports pragmatic practices in order to gather data at the right level and at the right time.

      This presentation examines portfolio management trends and best practices that high achieving organizations have applied to turbo charge their planning process.

    • 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.

    • 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.
