About our Session
Vision To Profit - Aligning Projects to Corporate Strategy
11:15 am - 12:15 pm and again at 1:45 pm - 2:45 pm

Leaders define vision. A business turns vision into profit. Project Managers drive the projects that build the capabilities transforming businesses. Ergo, Project Managers are enablers for turning vision into profit. To achieve this, project managers, like you, must build value-driven organizations that are seasoned yet adaptive, structured yet agile, pragmatic yet innovative. It is not a simple feat.

Four basic tenents allow you to do this:

Strategy to meet the corporate goals drives all of your work.
Work cannot start until the people to complement the strategy are in place.
Processes need to fit the individual projects (not too lean, not to heavy, and sized for each project).
Technology is only a tool to improve efficiency—it is only a means to an end.

PMI Sioux Empire, SD: People Or Process, Which Has A Greater Effect On Project Success (Mon. 8 Sep, 2014 11:00 pm - Tue. 9 Sep, 2014 10:59 pm)

PMI Sioux Empire, South Dakota

People or Process, Which Has a Greater Effect on Project Success



Process drives our lives. It provides the comfort of consistency, accuracy, and conformance. Add people, however—people with personality, prejudice, and protest—and processes fall short. To deal with the realities of business, we need a toolbox of techniques for managing and leading people while balancing the competing interests of stakeholders who simply want consistently successful results. This seminar starts by looking at the lynch pin of business—process—why it is important, when it is an appropriate solution, and how its overuse generates failure. It provides insight into some of the quirks inherent in people by using estimation processes to expose our personal biases that defeat process. The presentation culminates with a lesson and discussion on leading and incentivizing people as a replacement for layering on process, which only increase bureaucracy.

SIM San Diego

Todd C. Williams will give a one hour presentation with a follow up 30 minute facilitated roundtable discussion where the concepts of the presentation will be discussed.

Vision To Profit - The CIO’s Four Guiding Principles

Leaders define vision. A business turns vision into value. CIOs build the capabilities that transform businesses. Ergo, CIOs are enablers for turning vision into value.
To achieve this, CIOs, like you, must build value-driven organizations that are seasoned yet adaptive, structured yet agile, pragmatic yet innovative. It is not a simple feat.
To understand the need to stick to the four core principles (reading and adhering to corporate strategy, project alignment, initiative prioritization, and disseminating the plan to your organization), this keynote will show that:

An IT strategy that meets corporate goals must drive all of your work.

Work cannot start until the people to complement the strategy are in place.

Processes need to fit the individual projects (not too lean, not to heavy, and sized for each project).

To achieve success, certain key areas of your organization and your projects are more important to monitor.

The four tenents help you focus on building and leading powerful organizations that provide value, accelerate business growth, and make your IT group a strategic component of your company.
