Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Fix your Project Management Processes for Better Collaboration

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.

Using the Project Management Institute's Organizational Project Management Maturity (OPM) model, we will explore strategies to assess and then systematically improve real project performance by focusing on project management processes enabled by information management technology.

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.

  • Resource and Project Management Best Practices in Today's Digital World Mar 14 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Prasanna Adavi, Microsoft Project MVP EPMA, Inc.
    Resource management is the efficient and effective development of an organization's resources when they are needed.

    When it comes to a Project Portfolio Management (PPM) solution deployment, resource management is one of the most common requirements. Most executives want to know answers to questions like: How is my current resource utilization going? What does my Requirements vs. Committed Capacity charting look like? Can my organization/group handle the requirements that are lined up for them for the upcoming period?

    Ironically, while these questions are the most basic and common questions to ask, they're also the most difficult questions to answer accurately. A sensible approach is needed to put the proper framework in place, so that when these questions are asked, you're ready with answers.

    Join this webcast to learn how to use a resource management perspective to:

    - Use Project Online to set up the project framework, plan the work, execute it, track it, and provide accurate reporting
    - Address executives' most common questions about PPM, spanning areas like planning of work, estimation, tracking of actual work, and maintenance of the plans
    - Leverage what-if analysis to help you make better informed PPM decisions
