Proactive Scheduling Evolved (by KennethSteiness, PMP/PMI-SP MCP MCT)
The Project Management Institute (PMI) reports that organizations with solid project management processes, fully defined scope and good scheduling standards consistently experience dramatically increased predictability and hit project release dates. Proactive Scheduling is an effective and practical approach to scheduling and the equivalent of a GPS system for your project that enables better decision-making and corrective action.

With a cloud-based project and portfolio management solution, businesses enjoy a much faster time to market, lower operating costs, and expert support. Based on nearly a decade of PPM hosting experience, Scott Chapman will highlight real-world technical and business advantages that customers realize with custom cloud-based solutions. Learn the about difference between a generic cloud and a custom cloud and the seven questions you should ask before choosing a cloud-based PPM solution.
