Establishing a PMO (Project/Program/Portfolio Management Office) is considered to be a best practice approach to improving the value an organization can receive from its project investments.

Why is it then, that a study, conducted in 2005, of 750 organizations worldwide indicated that over 75% of organizations that set up a PMO shut it down within three years because it did not demonstrate any added value?

Solution Q invites you to attend a webinar where you will learn key reasons why so many PMOs fail, and gain some valuable knowledge of the critical success factors required to ensure the survival of your PMO.

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

Effective PPM Change Management

Live Webinar – November 13th, 2014 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm EDT
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

Talented individuals who successfully manage people and projects but who do not manage the relationship with their bosses run the risk of damaging their own careers and negatively impacting organizational success.

Managing up is the ability to manage the relationship with your boss.

It is not about political maneuvering, manipulation or promoting your self-interests.

Rather, it’s the process of working with your boss to obtain the best possible results for the two of you and for your organization.

Understanding the dynamics of this relationship and knowing how to manage it is essential to your personal fulfillment and career development.

This webinar will help you:

  • Examine the interdependent relationship between you and your boss.
  • Get to know your boss: Understand his or her style and adjust your own style to meet it.
  • Know which behaviors are designed to develop a positive and productive relationship with your boss and which are not.
  • Develop strategies to deal with a difficult boss.
  • Become a valuable asset to your boss and to your organization.

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
