2017 Trends in Project & Portfolio Management Seminar

2017 Trends in Project and Portfolio Management

We all know that failed projects can send a ripple effect through an organization…but to what extent? The truth is, this can be felt all the way up and down the chain of the corporate hierarchy, ultimately impacting employment. So how do you stop this domino effect, or more importantly how do you decrease the likelihood of failure?

I give the example of a project as a marathon made up of a series of sprints. To complete a marathon, it takes preparation. Or, in the case of projects, project planning. You also need to be fit – meaning having the right mix of skills. Marathon runners have to train hard and often, and some would agree that it’s the same for project teams.

Here is the bottom line: Marathoners make running their business. Similarly, projects are our business and we have to execute, evolve and execute better.  Looking at the overall project management ecosystem, here are five of the most important concepts trending in 2017.

-The ever increasing role of the project manager.
-The Role of the PMO is increasing.
-PPM in the cloud is the key technology trend in 2017
-Self-service cost and schedule.
-Personal connections can impact the success of a project


Register below as these five trends will be explained deeper in this virtual seminar “Today’s Shifting Landscape in Project and Portfolio Management”.

Webinar: Why projects fail? Through the looking Glass of Tech and Transparency

Register to this Webinar below

You may not want to admit it—but every so often a project fails. That is, it doesn’t quite hit the profitability mark. And maybe it’s more often than you’d like to admit. Research suggests as many as one-third of projects don’t meet the firm’s own profitability metrics. And even more alarming, nearly two-thirds of firms lack the transparency to effectively measure profitability benchmarks. How is that even possible?

Even though technology continues to help streamline almost all aspects of consulting firm management, it doesn’t always make it all the way to the bottom line of project success and failure. Too often, firm leaders are left in the dark as to why a specific project didn’t deliver. Was it mismanaged? Were the margins wrong from the get-go? Were the wrong people doing the wrong work? Or maybe the project wasn’t worth doing in the first place? Knowing the answers to these questions after an engagement—or better yet, before—is essential to a firm’s success.

To explore this topic, plan now to join us online May 9 and uncover answers to such critical questions as:

  • Why do so many consulting projects fail to hit the mark?
  • What role should technology play in your organization?
  • What tools and tactics should you have in place at your firm?
  • How can you determine a successful project before it begins?
  • What steps should your firm be taking right now for success?

PLUS—get answers to your own questions by industry experts during the live Q&A session immediately following the presentation.

Hosted by Consulting Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Joe Kornik, this webinar promises a 360-degree view of the topic from industry experts and leading consultancies.

This event is offered free of charge to consulting professionals courtesy of our sponsor, Deltek.

Webinar: Talent Management for Dummies – Series Introduction – Recording

Hear the Recording – Register below

Join us for the first of a five-part series, based on the informational book, Talent Management for Dummies, Deltek Special Edition.

For years, there has been talk of a “war for talent.”

It’s a battle that continues to gain increased attention – especially since the recent recession created a significantly reduced workforce who was asked to do more with less. The result? Increasingly, an organization’s people and its support for them became a company’s most valuable attribute, providing opportunities for differentiation and a competitive edge.

In this webinar, Silversoft Expert, Kathryn Gordon, will highlight how the war for talent has affected today’s conditions. With so many open positions after the recession, companies are struggling to stand out from their competitors in order to not only attract the top talent but keep it.

Highlights include:

  • Understanding the challenges of a multi-generational workforce
  • The importance of aligning your talent management strategy with your business strategy
  • Why companies who are winning the war for talent are embracing technology to help them be competitive
