Effective PPM Change Management

Share

Live Webinar – December 9th, 2014 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EST
Presented by: Eclipse Project Portfolio Management
Duration: 1 hour 1 PDUs Credits: Category C 1 PDU- Free PDU

Project Portfolio Management (PPM) initiatives are expected to provide significant benefit to multiple roles within an organization.

Intuitively, most staff can understand the potential value in the organization, process and technology changes involved with a PPM initiative. However, the lack of change management practices through a PPM initiative’s implementation is one of the most common reasons for their failure. Symptoms of this issue can include poor executive commitment, resistance or political pressure from functional management and compliance issues with project teams.

Eclipse will review common misconceptions about PPM initiative implementations, provide some guiding principles for successful change and detail the steps and key communication messages necessary to gain buy-in from executive and functional management as well as from project teams.

This webinar will also provide tips that can be incorporated into the initiation and planning of your PPM initiative to increase your odds of success.

Who should attend this webinar?
C-Level Management, IT Directors and Managers or Directors of PMOs

Much of what you may have heard about management is myth—based not on evidence, but on something from the Industrial Revolution, or something that someone else read in a book that does not fit your context.

If you would like to learn how to help people develop solutions when they are stuck, when to utilize training and which kinds, and how to work more effectively — in other words, the kinds of management that works for knowledge workers — then join Johanna in this webinar on exploding management myths.

It’s been exciting over the past year to watch as big products become available that really give development teams the tools they need to perform agile software engineering  (Microsoft Team Foundation Server in particular, but the story is bigger than that).

With tools like TFS and a host of others, development teams can track and store all their code, automate their releases, control versioning, automate testing, collaborate across the team and much more.

But how much are these tools doing to bridge the infamous gap between development of the product and the production environment into which it is released?

For years we have heard about breakdowns between agile developers, release teams, and operations staff who have to maintain system stability and keep customer-facing software stable. We wanted to talk to a real-world expert about how newer tools and techniques are being used to break down walls between agile development and release engineering.

Join  Chris Knotts,  (LinkedIn profile) for one hour of open Q & A with ASPEs resident Agile Engineering guru and TFS expert, Brian Brewer. They will have an unscripted conversation about how teams are using these tools, and how real-world IT shops can use agile practices and have stable deployments too.

Risks exist on projects because by definition, projects possess uncertainty. Organizations that ignore risks experience reduced project success rates due to the wasted effort and delays that result from dealing with issues.

Risk management methodologies address this challenge but tend to be too theoretical or require significant process discipline or historical data to be practical.

During this webinar you will learn practical, lightweight best practices for managing risks throughout a project’s lifecycle.

Benefits of managing risks through this approach include:

  • Improved project predictability
  • Improved ROI for your overall portfolio
  • Quantification of cost & schedule contingencies
  • Reduced effort spent resolving project issues

Who should attend this webinar?
Managers/Directors of PMOs, Project Managers
