Innovative Solutions for a Constrained Project World

Project Management Institute (PMI)® Professional Development Units (PDUs):
This Webinar is eligible for 1 PMI® PDU in the Technical category of the Talent Triangle.

Event Description:

This presentation will examine what happens when a small group within a very large organization wants to increase its project management capability around Resource and Schedule Management leveraging an existing enterprise tool for Cost Management. Pcubed Consultants Rich Weller and Bert Velasco will demonstrate their “MacGyver-esque” talents as they highlight some unique solutions employed to meet a client’s challenges; all without access to their full toolkit and within a very tight timeframe.

Key Take-Aways:
1. How to pragmatically deal with a 256 line project schedule template while simultaneously driving improved Resource and Schedule Management capability
2. How to overcome the cultural change required to maintain 12 schedules in Microsoft Project as opposed to Excel
3. How to consistently report out on several different types of projects
4. How to create a PMO dashboard (including trending data) without access to Performance Point, SSRS Reporting or even Excel Services
