Making Your Program Feel Like a Project
This presentation offers a no-pressure, stress-free virtual environment to learn about add-ins for Microsoft Project. The products featured in this free vendor presentation address gaps in out-of-the-box functionality thus would require product trial or purchase to use.
There have been several studies on complexity in projects and programs recently. The presenter thinks that, inherently, programs are not more complex than projects. What is different is that the investment is much larger, the stakes higher, the amount of data staggering, the dependencies cross-project, the stakeholders sharper and the media never far away. What makes programs seem more complex than projects is the lack of program management techniques and software applications to schedule, monitor and manage them. The presenter will provide insight in the bleeding edge of how these techniques and tools are currently being adapted to the challenge of managing audacious programs.
