  • Reconcile Agile and Traditional Project Management: A Hybrid Approach Jun 20 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jim Patterson, Director of Business Development, Tivitie
    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

  • Improving Close Ratios: Positioning the Sales Process Towards the Buyer Jun 13 2017 7:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Barbara Giamanco, CEO Social Centered Selling, Ken Thoreson, CEO Acumen Management Group, Ltd. & Dave Kurlan, Kurlan & Assoc.
    Most companies would agree that the sales closing ratio is the number of closed sales divided by the number of presentations. But to improve close ratios, you have to understand the unique aspects of each customer and how your product or service solves their business problem.

    The focus must always be on the customer if you expect to improve the performance results of your team, because low or inconsistent close ratios are often a symptom of a bigger issue.

    Join this webcast to learn how to:

    - Customize your approach to meet the needs of the buyer, not the seller
    - Ask the right questions throughout the buyers’ decision-making process
    - Clarify urgency to be sure that the buyer is truly ready to make a change and buy
    - Break through your biggest competitive challenge - buyer status quo
    - Use strategies for cultivating referrals rather than waste time cold-calling and cold-emailing
