  • CA PPM in der Praxis – Teil 4: Reporting - Portlets, Dashboards, Ad-Hoc Jan 10 2017 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Stefanie Siegmann/Principal Consultant PPM/CA Technologies/
    Im Projektmanagement gehört ein regelmäßiges Reporting zum Tagesgeschäft. Durch den Einsatz von vorgefertigten Reports lassen sich im täglichen Projektmanagementgeschäft erhebliche Zeiteinsparungen erzielen.

    In CA PPM finden sich eine Vielzahl von fertigen Reports zu den Themen Projekte, Ideen, Ressourcen, Finanzen, Portfolios, usw. Für Sonderfälle lassen sich auch Ad-Hoc-Reports je nach Bedarf schnell und einfach erstellen.

    Aber nicht nur Reports helfen einem Projekt- oder Portfoliomanager, sondern auch Portlets und Dashboards, die mit Real-Time-Daten einen ständig aktuellen Aufschluss über die momentane Situation geben.

    In diesem Seminar wird anhand von Beispielen aufgezeigt werden, wie Reporting die Aufgaben in CA PPM unterstützt.
    Hierbei werden wir auf folgende Themen eingehen:
    •Best Practice Einsatz von Analyse-Portlets und deren Konfigurationsmöglichkeiten.
    •Best Practice Einsatz von Standardreports
    •Erstellen von eigenen Ad-Hoc-Reports mit Auswertung unserer eigenen konfigurierten Datenfelder
    •Erstellmöglichkeit von eigenen Drill-Down-Reports über den Report-Designer

    Wir freuen uns darauf, Ihnen als Abschluss unserer Seminarreihe „CA PPM in der Praxis“ das Thema Reporting darstellen zu können, welches alle bisherigen Themen vereint.

  • Audits and Agile: Apples & Oranges? Dec 14 2016 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Laureen Knudsen, Agile Advisor
    In many organizations today—such as government, healthcare and banking—the pressure to comply with mandatory regulations feels in conflict with the pressure to move fast, release often and stay open to change. Even as more development teams adopt agile practices, regulatory agencies seem to prefer documentation over working software, templates over discussion, and governance over adaptiveness. So what's a high-compliance organization to do?
    One of the most often heard comments we hear when we talk agile in a highly-regulated environment is that it simply can't be done. If this is common thinking in your organization, you will not want to miss this engaging webinar.
    Laureen Knudsen will show you how to make agile audits easy. With more than 14 years of experience in regulated environments, Laureen designed a lightweight, auditable, product lifecycle allowing highly-regulated organizations to maintain regulatory compliance while reaping the benefits of agile methodologies.
    During this webinar, you’ll learn:
    •How to meet compliance requirements while shifting to agile practices
    •How to effectively use CA Agile Central project data to pass audits quickly and easily
    •How to streamline your product lifecycle
    Who doesn’t want an easier process when it comes to audits? Following the webinar we’ll leave time for Q&A, so bring your questions!
  • Strategic Agile vs. PPM – a grudge match or BFFs? Recorded: Dec 6 2016 57 mins
    Andy Jordan, ProjectManagement.com and Jim Tisch, CA Product Marketing, PPM
    Agile is increasingly becoming a factor at the strategic level. There are a number of different frameworks for scaling Agile and they are starting to touch on the realm of traditional portfolio management. Does that mean portfolio management has to change? Does strategic Agile have to adapt? Are we going to end up with multiple portfolios? In this engaging webinar portfolio management expert Andy Jordan breaks through some of the confusion and offers guidance on:
    •How to incorporate more strategic Agile concepts into portfolio management
    •The importance of differentiating strategic Agile from Agile for strategic projects (they are different)
    •Minimizing disruption and maximizing commitment with strategic Agile
    •Leveraging Agile in all forms of portfolio management
    This webinar promises to challenge some of the Agile stereotypes that exist as Andy offers innovative ideas and approaches that promise to give all organizations a chance to improve portfolio success. Don’t miss out, register today.

    Peter Saeckel/Advisor PPM/CA Technologies/
    In Teil 3 geht es um die Aktualität der Daten der laufenden Projekte. Hierzu müssen operative Daten zeitnah und exakt eingebracht werden. Wurde ein Projekt genehmigt, wird es mit geeigneten Mitarbeitern ausgestattet und die Arbeiten verteilt. Es geht aber auch um Zeitrückmeldung der Projektmitarbeiter, Erkennen von Verzögerungen, Handhabung von Change Requests, Überwachung von Kosten uvm. Sollte einer dieser Faktoren zu einer Umplanung des Projekts führen, muss dies auch im Projektportfolio ersichtlich werden, damit die dortige Planung mit validen Daten arbeiten kann.

  • Agile for Speed, productivity and … happiness  Recorded: Oct 27 2016 53 mins
    Longda Yin, Principal Agile Consultant
    Agile employees outperform so-called “hard workers” by nearly 20 percent, and research from Korn Ferry found that companies with more agile executives had 25 percent higher profit margins than their peers. Given the pervasiveness of agile in software development circles, and the pervasiveness of software as the backbone for every business today, it’s no surprise that agile tenets have pervaded employee expectations about the workplace. It’s why some of our agile coaches encourage customers to use employee happiness as a productivity metric.  
     
    Agile cultures are engaging cultures, and engaging cultures produce engaged employees. Are you ready to get going? We can help. Join us on Thursday, October 27, 10am PST / 1pm ET for this engaging webinar.
