Seattle: Raise Financial Visibility Inside PPM, and Raise Your Own Visibility
Thursday, March 27, 2014 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
The role of the PMO is evolving to become a more strategic advisor to the business. How can you be prepared to take advantage of this trend? By learning how to view projects as business investments, and effectively integrate financial management controls and PPM. This approach helps the PMO proactively gauge the economic impact of poor project performance and take corrective actions.
Join this month’s Seattle MPUG and hear from UMT360 on strategies that can help achieve broader visibility for you and your PMO team, including:
- The use of better tools, eliminating the need for Excel and standardized investment governance controls across the PPM lifecycle
- Streamlining capital planning and building stronger business cases
- Automating financial tracking and variance analysis and move to an agile re-planning process
- Establishing a benefits realization framework
During this event, students will learn strategies to increase their visibility in the organization.
