Conference Program Details

 

Day 1: November 4th

8:00am - 9:00am - Registration and Continental Breakfast

Nauyalis

9:00am-10:00am

The Internet of Things: Where IT and Product Portfolios Unite

Carrie Nauyalis, NPD Solutions Evangelist, Planview

As products get smarter and more connected, the partnership, collaboration, and synchronization between IT and Product Development must get stronger. The pressure to compete in an Internet of Things (IoT) marketplace further underscores the need for speed in this complex environment.

So, how do you bring together the projects, people, and money from both IT infrastructure and product innovation to ensure your company attains its strategic targets and gains the greatest amount of market share in the process?

Come join Carrie for this highly engaging and thought provoking presentation on the IoT to learn:

  • What impact the infiltration of smart products it is having on IT and PD

  • Which organizations are well-positioned to advance in the IoT marketplace

  • How IT become a super hero to the business, contributing as a revenue center instead of a cost center











10:00am -10:30am - Refreshment Break

10:30am-11:30am

Dribin

Project to Outcome Management – A Better Value Add Proposition

Laura Dribin, President/CEO, Peritius Consulting, Inc.

As the market has matured, many businesses have commoditized Project Management. Success in managing initiatives, both large and small, is not wholly contingent on maintaining timelines and budget, but also on ensuring the results measure back to strategy. What does that mean? Managing to a positive outcome. Completing a project and delivering the desired outcome are often two different things. Addressing outcomes creates a focus on implementation, adoption and metrics. It puts leadership on the hook to create an accountable culture where strategic value drives business decisions.

In this presentation Laura will define Outcome Management and describe why it is imperative to evolve your organization beyond project management mentalities in order to achieve your firm’s strategic vision. You will learn how to improve your returns by focusing and prioritizing outcomes when managing the delivery of any initiative within your organization. She will outline some common myths in project delivery and provide some tips to help you to be a change agent in moving your organization towards an outcome-based focus. This focus can be used both in defining and managing the success metrics of projects in your organization.








Smith

11:30am-12:30pm

Bridging Capability Gaps Key to Driving a Strategic PMO

Danny Smith, Deputy CIO, Marquette University

Danny Smith, Deputy CIO for Marquette University, will share how an upgrade in their PPM platform – along with the addition of missing financial controls – lead to increased maturity of their PMO in order to handle these challenges. Faced with managing a variety of different project request formats, disconnected project databases and limited financial visibility, the organization knew it needed more comprehensive and sophisticated business planning and control capabilities. Dan will share how bridging these capability gaps enabled the PMO to address the needs of all stakeholders within the organization, leveraging a common process and tools to more effectively manage all project investments, while also facilitating the capital selection process.







12:30pm - 1:30pm Luncheon

Greer

1:30pm-2:30pm

How to Fail Implementing Resource Management

Daniel Greer, President, Rego Consulting

Enterprise Resource Management is the elusive Holy Grail for many organizations. Resource management processes are difficult to implement and we have seen many failed attempts. Even strong process led deployments with best in breed tools fail. Is your organization seeking answers to these questions:

  • What is the impact of an investment delay on the rest of the portfolio or projects?

  • When can I start working on a new idea, given all the existing work priorities?

  • Where are my resource constraints and bottlenecks, and how can I address them?

  • Who is available?

In this session we will review some of the key lessons learned from large and small organizations that have tackled resource management successfully and unsuccessfully. The goal of the presentation is to arm you with the knowledge of what not do to (and many a few keys to success as well).







2:30pm - 3:00pm - Refreshment Break

Scher

3:00pm-4:00pm

Grow Your PPM Performance by Growing Your Reporting Capabilities

Claude Scher, IT Enterprise Resource Manager, Johnson Controls

From the moment you establish the foundation of your project portfolio management office, Reporting plays a critical role in helping you understand where you are as an organization, identify any potential opportunity for improvement and growth. Without the right reporting framework, you cannot and your customers cannot make the right investments and execution decisions and it usually ends up in the traditional conflicts around priorities, dollars, resources, etc...

In this presentation, following the traditional PPM cycle from ideation and demand management to portfolio and project execution, Claude will introduce some key reports you should have in place in order to drive that performance up. Whether you work for a newly formed PPM Office or an established one, Claude will try to provide relevant examples that support a maturity roadmap your PPM capabilities.
