    • Better Project Process Means Better Project Performance - 1 PDU Better Project Process Means Better Project Performance - 1 PDU Steve Romero, Founder of Romero Consulting Recorded: Apr 7 2016 11:00 pm UTC 46 mins
    • Project Teams rely on countless processes, and project teams find themselves on both sides of the process fence. Not only do they rely on project management processes to achieve their objectives, they also rely on countless enterprise processes. To succeed, project requires sound Project and Portfolio Management, Systems Development, and a myriad of operational and service delivery processes. Though processes are ubiquitous in every company today, they are frequently looked on negatively or even avoided. In this session Steve Romero will discuss the factors that potentially make processes a hindrance, the means and approaches to make processes practical and enabling, and how great processes and process management can empower project teams.

    • 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

    • As Agile and agile thinking has continued to gain traction in organizations beyond the software development teams, project managers are left wondering what it all means to them.

      Some Agile practitioners promote the idea the PMs are no longer needed once you make the transition to using a practice such as Scrum. Does this mean that the PM role will become obsolete in Agile organizations? Or does it mean that the role of traditional project manager needs to transform to being a agile project leader?

      If you are a PM in an organization making the transition to Agile, come find out what it means to you and what you need to do start the transformation to becoming an Agile Project Leader.

    • How To Ensure A Successful Modernization Project How To Ensure A Successful Modernization Project Bill Porter-Global IT Leader, DuPont ; Cameron Jenkins-Director Application Modernization, Dell Services Upcoming: Jul 28 2016 2:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    • Often, we see modernization programs are driven by technical teams to resolve technical or infrastructure-related objectives without any input or insight from business teams. The downfall with a single-track view is not only myopic, serving limited purposes for a limited time, but also it can prove to be a wrong decision in the long run.

      In some instances, we’ve seen customers opting for a re-host or automated code conversion, whereas an application re-architecture or re-write would’ve been a better long-term and cost-effective solution for the business. That’s why it’s critical for companies to get a holistic view of their modernization project first, and then have a robust plan to achieve their objective.

      Interact live with DuPont and gain insights on how to ensure a successful modernization project, lessons learned, and critical success factors. See how Dell Services’ Strategic Modernization Roadmap (SMR) approach is holistic and collaborative for application modernization projects.

    • Capturing the Value of Project Management Through Organizational Agility - 1 PDU Capturing the Value of Project Management Through Organizational Agility - 1 PDU Tricia Cabrey, Market Researcher, PMI Recorded: Apr 7 2016 7:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    • 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
      •Adaptive Process: Assessing and establishing new means to respond to change

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