Prosci specializes in change management processes.  With a strong developed expertise in change management processes they produce high quality informative presentations and seminars

For changes to deliver results and outcomes, structured approaches are needed for both the technical side of the change (through project management) and for the people side of the change (through change management).

The technical side ensures that solutions are designed, developed and delivered effectively. The people side ensures that the solution is embraced, adopted and used proficiently.

These two complementary disciplines share a common objective – to improve the performance of the organization by implementing a change. However, bringing these two disciplines together can sometimes be challenging.

This webinar looks at how to integrate change management and project management across five dimensions to deliver benefit realization and a unified value proposition for change

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

Presenter: Peter de Jager’s Technobility Webinar Series
Sponsored by: Interthink (Rep # 1434)
Activity ID:  TECHNO49

Every organization delivers services to its customers, whether in the private sector, the public sector, or somewhere in between.

 But …..

  • What’s a service?
  • Who is a customer?
  • How do you define them,
  • How do you evaluate them?  and
  • How do you know they are being delivered effectively?

Adopting a formal and disciplined approach to defining and managing services is a critical step in their improvement.

Formal definition of services can significantly enhance your ability to understand, measure and identify opportunities for improvement.

This presentation explores how to effectively assess and evaluate services. In particular, it introduces the Municipal Reference Model as a ‘Made in Canada’ framework that has become the de facto standard for defining and evaluating public sector services in local government.

Join Melinda Munro (LinkedIn profile) as she provide insight and case studies on how organizations can improve their service offerings. She is a lawyer with extensive experience in the municipal sector.

Melinda has successfully implemented performance frameworks for major Canadian cities. Her hands-on approach to conducting service reviews is focused on ensuring maximum knowledge transfer to organizations and employees. Drawing on her background as an advocate, she uses rigorous and disciplined techniques for aligning service design/delivery with Council goals and community aspirations.

Live Webinar – April 16th, 2014 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm  EDT
Offered by IAG Consulting (REP 2858)
Duration 1 hour 1 PDU or  1 CDU 1 Category A – Free PDU

Enterprise Business Architecture is quickly evolving into a mainstream business capability.

Some would argue that it is already there particularly when 50% of the world’s top performing organizations have embraced business architecture as a strategic differentiator ranging from Government, Telco’s, Manufacturing and Financial Institutions.

However there continues to be a large population of change executives, managers and resources who regard Business Architecture as a theoretical practice.

Strategic change initiatives proliferate in business today. The speed and rate of change demands we maintain holistic oversight of all the moving parts to ensure realization of target operating models and designs.

Historically only a few strategic programs would be at play. In the last decade this number has grown to include on-shoring/off-shoring, centralization, spans of control, business transformation, vendor outsourcing, modernization, mergers/acquisitions, channel optimization, client segmentation, journeys and experience.

To facilitate strategic alignment and execution of these initiatives, firms are investing in business architecture.

Beyond Theory will focus on what are the market and internal forces at work which have been driving and will continue to drive organizations to use the models to better understand business impact, scope, execution and benefits realization.

The discussion will address the deployment and adoption challenges and look at industry standards and Blueprinting for strategic opportunities. It will provide a foundational knowledge of the business architecture framework and model types to crystalize scope, identify stakeholders, manage risk and how early analysis, through the lens of the business architecture, will influence estimating, resourcing, time, cost and quality.

Business Architecture is the link between strategy and execution.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Provide clear, rational reasons to do business Architecture.
  2. Present a foundational set of Business Architecture Models, views and uses to mitigate project and analysis risk, drive the value proposition
  3. Recommend a staged Execution Model

  1. Understand the criticality of uncertain resource availability on project outcomes.
  2. Learn which approaches for getting better knowledge of resource availability won’t work in your organization.
