Workshop: Ensuring Your PMO is Relevant and Meeting Customer Needs?

Interactive group exercises in this foundational workshop will provide the catalyst to allow participants to discuss and refine their current thinking regarding their PMO and its effectiveness in meeting sponsor, stakeholder and enterprise needs.

Tutorial: From Projects to Products: A New Funding Model for IT

Candice Kenney, Director, Advisory, Gartner

The IT funding model is broken. CIOs find product-aligned teams faster, more iterative and better at managing uncertainty. Business unit leaders devote a growing share of their budgets to technology. Yet, CFOs still want the apparent certainty and cost control of project-based funding. This session will show how leading organizations moved technology funding from rigid project-based models to product-level funding that promotes innovation, continuous delivery and close stakeholder engagement.

Workshop: Defeat Economic Uncertainty With Agile Adaptive Budgeting

Stewart Buchanan, VP Analyst, Gartner

Some senior executives and their investors are becoming afraid of trade wars and other economic uncertainties. Meanwhile, CFOs are in love with the illusion of certainty that waterfall budgeting creates. To gain real control, they have to give up the illusion of control. Finance teams have often forgotten the primary reason for which they control spending — to maximize the value they report. Business value isn’t absolute, it needs to be developed and demonstrated through continuous iterations. Conditional budgeting overcomes uncertainty by setting the guardrails around what development products might be worth to the organization and how best to deliver that value.
