This Webinar is eligible for 1 PMI® PDU in the Technical Category of the Talent Triangle.

Event Description: 

Wondering if Enterprise-wide Project Management could work in your company?  Concerned about the cost for MS Project Server, the expertise required to run it and the time needed for training and implementation?  Is there some way to do Enterprise-wide Project Management on the cheap?  The answers to these questions are respectively: “almost for sure”, “I know what you mean” and “Yes indeed!”

Enterprise-wide Project Management for Dummies will help you determine if enterprise-wide PM can help your organization, and if so, do you need to go to a full implementation of Project Server or can you do a poor man’s application instead.  What type and size organizations can use the non-Server implementation will be discussed, the steps required to implement such an application, and examples of how to set up projects and enterprise-wide resource pools will be shown.

Participants will be able to determine if their organization could go to enterprise-wide project management using the simple data-base capabilities of the standard tool.  Suggested steps to take within the organization to prepare for and implement this application will be shared.  Some suggestions on how to implement Project Server will also be shared to aid those participants who find their organization cannot use the poor-man’s version.

Target Audience: PMs, Senior PMs, Project Officers in small to intermediate size organizations
