Enterprise Reporting for Planner
November 16 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET   

Many organizations use Microsoft Planner because it’s free if you have an Enterprise Plan! This is good news, but unfortunately it is difficult to report across multiple plans; the reporting options simply haven’t been built by Microsoft. To address this need I’ve created and published a solution that enables you to bring Planner tasks and assignments into Power BI which can be deployed by anyone who has access to the Power Platform.

Leading Through Change Without Burning Out
November 30 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm ET   

Effective leadership has never been more important, and more challenging. Economic uncertainty, changing work environments and competitive pressures are creating a perfect storm for project leaders and staff. Burnout is increasingly becoming the norm. How then, can you continue to lead (and even elevate your leadership) with less effort and none of the stress? During this interactive talk, Executive Coach Ravi Raman will explore and guide you through a set of key principles behind effective leadership, and how to apply them to support your (and your teams) growth in these challenging times. It is possible to perform better as a leader, without burning out.

Finally, if you’re using either Project Online or Project for the Web, we’ll discuss how you can easily visualize these projects.
