      How to Streamline Negotiation for Resource and Project Managers Prasanna Adavi, EPMA, Inc. Microsoft Project MVP Recorded: Apr 12 2017 6:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    • Take a deep dive into Resource Engagements to clear the confusion and streamline the resource engagement process.

      Resource Engagements is a recently introduced feature in Project Online, and also Project Server 2016. In a typical organization, resource managers and project managers find it challenging to agree on and assign resources for specific projects and tasks. With no clear way to track who's working where, who's over-allocated, and with crossed lines of communication, the process can start to break down.

      Resource Engagements aims to clear the confusion and help streamline this process.

      Join this webcast to:

      - Understand the difference between Resource Engagements and Resource Plans
      - See how Resource Engagements and Portfolio Analysis work together

    • The more your business grows, the more complex your challenges become.

      As your business evolves, you face some big challenges that may include ensuring timely delivery of profitable, complex client projects; efficient resource management and billable utilization; retaining, developing, and supporting your team, and accurate revenue and resource forecasting. Companies who overcome these challenges are rewarded with stronger control and visibility across resources to improve profitability and professional services delivery.

      Optimizing resource management is crucial to profitability, on-time delivery, and client satisfaction for any professional services organization. Yet many are forced to resort to guesswork on staffing projects and forecasting needs — often in a last-minute scramble. Additionally, without proper project-scoping, customers experience cost over-runs and revenues are impacted.

      Project Service Automation is a new set of technologies from Microsoft that helps companies make the most of their vital resources. In this webcast, our experts will walk you through key resource and project management functionality in Microsoft Dynamics and highlight best practices to help you improve resource utilization and decrease project over-runs.

      Join this webcast to learn how to:
      - Optimize resource management to drive profitability, on-time delivery, and client satisfaction
      - Reduce project over-runs by accurately forecasting resources and revenue
      - Maximize collaboration across teams and the organization

    • Breakthrough project performance improvement comes from redesigning work on an end-to-end basis. Just implementing the MS Project technologies won't get you there.

      Topics that will be covered:

      1. What do I get if I invest in project management? Feel good exercise or a real money maker?
      2. What is the OPM model?
      3. What processes count the most toward improved performance?
      4. How to perform an organizational assessment.
      5. Defining the gap and getting buy-in for change.
      6. It's not just about training! It's not just a software implementation!
      7. Building a change roadmap and making it happen.

    • Collaborating on Digital Projects - 1 PDU
      Collaborating on Digital Projects - 1 PDU Tim Jennings, Chief Research Officer, Ovum Recorded: Apr 7 2016 2:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    • Collaboration and team working have always been essential components of successful projects, but in today’s technology-driven environment, the composition of those teams and the nature of collaboration have changed. Digitization of business processes and the incorporation of technology into a wide range of products and services are major trends across all sectors. Digital projects are therefore no longer siloed within departments, but involve active participation and ownership from line of business stakeholders across a diverse range of business functions, from marketing to supply chain management and from IT to customer service. In this context, PPM best practice must evolve to meet the needs of these diverse groups, whilst PPM solutions must empower different roles across the organization, some of whom may be less familiar with project management processes. Ovum has recently undertaken a study of PPM best practices and will present its findings, along with recommendations for applying these in your organization. The session will address topics including:

      *Why digitization is changing PPM best practice
      *How to improve collaboration across multi-disciplinary project teams
      *Where agile and DevOps are impacting PPM
      *How to extend the benefits of PPM across and beyond the business *Why PPM is a significant enabler of digital transformation

      This event qualifies for 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU credit).
