    Application Portfolio Management (APM) is a critical skill for today’s IT departments to maximize effectiveness by aligning apps to business needs and gaining efficiency.

    Metrics and analytics alone don’t tell you anything about whether your planned investment has succeeded. Success comes from the right metrics, measured in the right way.

Watch our webinar to learn how you can capitalize on your data analytics by:

    • Using forward-looking, business-focused vs. backward-looking, project-focused metrics

    Andy Jordan, Roffensian Consulting S.A, Debbra McGrath, ServiceNow, and Jim Tisch, ServiceNow
    In the last few years organizations have been embracing agile concepts more broadly across their business, as well as vertically in more strategic elements. But the recent COVID-19 pandemic revealed just how far most businesses are away from true enterprise agility. We’re going to help you put that right. Watch this webinar for insights on:

    • Applying the concept of enterprise agility to your situation with a focus on immediate results
    • Understanding its issues and opportunities, and leveraging them
    • Building on project level agility for greater enterprise efficiency today

    Andy Jordan, Roffensian Consulting S.A., Doug Page, ServiceNow and Jim Tisch, ServiceNow
    Digital transformation is changing how organizations think about completing work. Increasingly, the focus is shifting from individual projects to a product-based approach—one where all development efforts are part of a planned lifecycle. This creates both opportunities and challenges that must be managed effectively. Watch this webinar as we discuss:

    • Understanding this paradigm shift and what it means for your organization
    • Developing the ability to successfully shift to a product-based development approach
    • Delivering a sustainable environment that is a catalyst for innovation, growth and success
  • Managing in a Hybrid World Dec 17 2020 6:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    Jim Tisch and Andy Jordan
    Typically, projects were once delivered with two approaches for execution: waterfall or agile. Waterfall follows a sequential process that’s very linear, while the agile process is more iterative—typically using planning to guide the project in sections (i.e., “sprints”). Now there is a hybrid of the two, which can offer the best of both approaches. This can allow for more flexibility depending upon the project itself.

    Today, hybrid is becoming the more prevalent model—meaning agile and traditional methods cannot consistently be applied in their “purest” form. Approaches must be adjusted to meet the needs of each unique project, while project managers must be able to adjust as needed. Is your team prepared?

    Join this webinar where we discuss:

    -Recognizing the importance of hybrid approaches
    -Understanding how hybrid changes the way projects get delivered
    -How project delivery needs to change to take advantage of the current opportunities

    Andy Jordan, President, Roffensian Consulting S.A
    Effecting change through digital transformation is top of mind for many enterprises - with the “digital” part receiving most of the attention. You can’t stop there, however. Bringing about a successful transformation ultimately requires cultural change - impacting IT more than most areas.

    Digital transformation is more about using technology to improve every aspect of your business - helping your organization evolve and adapt more quickly with less disruption. To achieve this, you must change mindsets, not just technology.

    Join our webinar. You’ll receive valuable insights on nurturing your own digital transformation from the expert, including:

    -Why creating a new business environment is more important than ever
    -The mechanics of IT transformation and how to proceed effectively
    -How to enable and nurture innovation consistently going forward

    Andy Jordan, President, Roffensian Consulting S.A.
    How do you measure an IT project team’s performance? A lot of businesses think in terms of output. The more projects a team completes, the more productive they are. But there’s a shift underway.
