Track A: From Demand Management to a Portfolio That Delivers Measurable Results and Strategic Value In today’s fast-moving environment, defining and delivering the right business outcomes has never been more important. Yet worldwide PMO and EPMO leaders still identify demand and portfolio management as the most critical problems they need to solve. This track focuses on the best practices for portfolio management as well as tips on changing the cultural issues that make effective portfolio management difficult.
Track B: Developing the Results-Oriented, Customer-Focused PMO The value proposition of the classic PMO is changing. Even exceptional process governance, by itself, is no longer enough to prove value. To be successful, PMOs will need to get better at ensuring that projects deliver more value in shorter periods of time. This track explores how to incorporate the demand for better and faster into everything the PMO does.
Track C: Managing the PPM Ecosystem: The Scope of What a Project or Program Entails is Changing Transformation, innovation and long-term change management are now being added to the list of what many projects must deliver. This track shows how the three dimensions of people, practices and tools are changing in the digital age.
Track D: Making the Mechanics Work: Governance, Reporting, Resource Management, and PPM Tools Most things go in cycles. What worked in the highly centralized structure of the last 20 years is now beginning to morph as technology moves more deeply into product lines and business units. This track examines how the entire concept of governance is changing along with the underpinning structures of resource management (moving from individuals to teams), reporting (more graphical) and the consumerization of tools.
Virtual Track: Thriving on the Leading Edge: Redefining Project and Program Management for the Digital Future One constant refrain that Gartner hears from senior executives is the need for leadership in the PPM community. This track is an invitation-only opportunity for senior PPM leaders to improve their own skills and to more clearly identify how they can improve the leadership capabilities of their own staff.
