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.

    Herbert Quinde- Industry Sales Microsoft, Dux Raymond Sy- CTO AvePoint, Tricia Morris- Sr Product Marketing Manager Microsoft
    Is government really broken? Or do we simply need a more responsive government?

Technology trends such as cloud, mobile, social media, and the Internet of Things (IoT) present opportunities for innovation that will help bridge the gap between the citizen-facing organization’s mission and the public’s needs.

    George Bronten, CEO of Membrain, Janice Mars, CEO of SalesLatitude & Barbara Giamanco, CEO of Social Centered Selling
    How well do you understand today's buyers?

    More and more, buyers have moved outside the traditional marketing funnel by changing the way they research and buy products. Today’s sales and marketing funnel concept fails to capture all the touchpoints and key buying factors resulting from the explosion of product choices and digital channels, coupled with buyers that are better-informed than ever. A more sophisticated approach is required to help sales and marketing leaders navigate this environment, which is less linear and more complicated than the traditional funnel suggests.

  • Cloud-Based Applications Aid Police & Citizen Engagement Recorded: Oct 26 2016 17 mins
    Jeff King, JPS Solutions Architect, Microsoft
    Leverage your community relationships for better policing!

    With recent terrorist attacks, law enforcement agencies are investing in new, sensor-based technologies (surveillance systems, drones, etc.) and location-based data feeds to gather intelligence and respond proactively to public safety concerns.

    A key challenge for law enforcement is how to tap into the vast amount of data being generated by private citizens. Videos, photos, and social media posts, created using smartphones, have the potential to provide first responders with information that could aid in their efforts. In this webcast, hear how the Miami-Dade police department has developed a new smartphone application, the Community on Patrol (COP) app, which deputizes the county's 2.6 million residents and improves community relations.

    You'll gain an overview of the COP technology, as well as lessons learned by Miami-Dade County in the development and launch of their new smartphone application. You'll see how the citizens of Miami-Dade are communicating directly with their real-time crime center to send videos and photos, make 911 calls, and submit tips to police for response and follow-up.

    Join this webcast to learn how to:

    Implement best practices for building a citizen and police mobile collaboration platform.
    Leverage the elasticity of cloud computing to develop smart phone technologies.
    Maximize the potential of apps to fight terrorism, reduce crime, and improve public safety.
