Resource Capacity Management

Presented by: Eclipse Project Portfolio Management
Duration: 1 hour 1 PDUs Credits: Category C 1 PDU- Free PDU

Organization structures in most companies today make resource management a daunting task. A lack of visibility into resource allocation and capacity, consistent prioritization and validation of actual work versus planned, contribute to this challenge.

Over 50% of IT organizations surveyed use their “best guess” when determining what capacity IT has to perform projects in a given period.

This webinar presents the fundamentals for creating and implementing a Resource Management Model using people, process and technology. A Resource Management Model is a set of processes that provide visibility, decision support and structure to effectively manage people in an organization.

Allocating resources based on availability and fit, supported by standard processes, will improve the success and predictability of projects across your organization.

Who should attend this webinar?
COOs, CIOs, Department VPs and Managers, PMs, Resource Managers

The promise of mobile learning is the ability to reach employees with powerful information, support tools and interactive content when and where they need. Only recently, with the rise of tablets, smartphones, cloud services, and BYOD programs have we reached a tipping point where mobile learning can meet this promise.

It can extend an existing L&D program, support learning transfer, provide the access point for social and informal learning and take on-demand performance support in entirely new directions.

Organizations using the right mobile learning strategy can achieve performance gains not possible through traditional learning or even e-learning.

This hour long session will provide a brief summary of the mobile landscape, and the current and future impact it is having on the learning profession.

It will also provide concrete guidance on the key decisions required to make mobile learning a part of a broader learning strategy.

Participants can expect to leave the session with a greater understand of the possibilities of starting a mobile learning project and creating a mobile learning strategy.
