PMO & Project Portfolio Management Best Practices

Adapt or Die: Are Your Project Management Tools & Strategies Up to Today's Business Challenges?

Chicago, IL | January 25, 2012

The success of Project Management lies in 1.) Picking the right projects; 2.) Using the right tools to collaborate and work effectively; 3.) Practice Best Practices in Project management to ensure the RIGHT projects get DONE.

In this special seminar, we'll explore how IT leaders use PPM & Collaboration to better prioritize portfolios, measure the value of IT investments and governance initiatives, manage demand and resources, and get stakeholder buy-in. Those that don't, said Gartner, will find their departments pink-slipped, as organizations review overhead in light of economic conditions and target departments like the PMO for "rightsizing."

Do your Projects and PMO stack up? Learn how best to align PPM and Project Management with business objectives, and utilize Collaboration and Project Management Best Practices to deliver results.

Join Top IT Executives from The Northern Trust Company, TransUnion, Fermilab and Feeding America...

They will discuss a range of issues to help you succeed in:

  • Prioritizing portfolios in fast-changing environments

  • Measuring and communicating the value of PPM and Project Management

  • Using Collaborative Tools as a Project Management Best Practice

  • Managing budgets, tools, skills, competencies and cultures and adapting them to change

  • Evolving the PMO's role, responsibilities and structures to meet changing demand

  • and more!
