    • Struggle Between Agile and Project Management
      Struggle Between Agile and Project Management Rick Morris, R2 Consulting, LLC Recorded: Apr 12 2017 9:00 pm UTC 48 mins
    • Agile is not a fad, it is a reality. In today’s application economy almost every company is a software company. One of the biggest misconceptions is that Agile is new. However, there is a struggle that seems to be happening between the understanding of the Agile world and the Project Management world. What does it mean to be Agile? If we are an Agile company, do we need Project Management? Is one better than the other? Can the two exist with each other?

      As organizations are looking to eliminate the barrier between ideas and outcomes the impacts of how to prioritize, execute, allocate funding and resources, and embrace change amplify the need to understand the roles and responsibilities of everyone.

      Join Rick Morris, a certified Scrum Agile Master, consultant, best-selling author, mentor, and evangelist for project management as he shares his real life experiences and even how his own thinking has been transformed in what will be an entertaining, enlightening, and lively discussion.

      5. Defining the gap and getting buy-in for change.

    • Reconcile Agile and Traditional Project Management: A Hybrid Approach
      Reconcile Agile and Traditional Project Management: A Hybrid Approach Jim Patterson, Director of Business Development, Tivitie Recorded: Jun 20 2017 6:00 pm UTC 55 mins
    • What could a hybrid PPM approach do for your organization?

      Gartner reports that 75% to 80% of organizations are using some form of agile project management process.

      Although agile project management has been around for many years, the way we adapt it has changed significantly, especially as project portfolio management (PPM) practices have evolved.

      In today’s businesses, technology plays a crucial role in our success, but technology can also make things more uncertain. This uncertainty has given us the motive to be more flexible and requires a “think on your feet” mentality. For this reason, we've seen a big spike in Agile PPM over the last few years. So how do we continue to deliver stability and efficiency, the result of traditional style PPM, while also giving in to necessary risks that lead to innovation and competitive edge?

      It’s simple: accept the value in each method, avoid the inevitable pains that may develop with segregation, and opt for a unified agile and traditional PPM model.

      Join this webcast to:

      - Understand the evolution of project management
      •- Gain an overview of agile project management
      - Learn the benefits of hybrid/unified PPM
      - Discover hybrid project management tools to support today's PPM

    • 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
