Shadow IT - Creating Synergy Between Business and IT Strategy

Jun 25, 2019 1:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

With the proliferation of cloud-based self-service platforms, it is becoming increasingly commonplace for business to break free from the shackles that bound them to Information Technology (IT) strategy forever. While strategy is never a bad thing, it can be the slow-moving tanker that takes forever to change course, and in the age of agility, most companies have not aligned their strategy with agile principles, even less so IT. Shadow IT, as it is known, has many advantages - with business possessing the ability to pursue available opportunities quickly proving the biggest plus. But it also creates many challenges. These challenges require attention in order to prevent a shadow IT initiative from going rogue. What are these challenges, and how do we mitigate the risk associated with them? Join Anton, as he shares lessons learned from practical experience that can be applied by both project managers and business analysts to keep shadow IT initiatives in the light.

by Stelian Roman
June 14, 2019 | 58:16 | Views: 592 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.09 / 5

Agile is a continuous improvement process in itself, but at the enterprise level, most of the Agile frameworks can’t be used for process improvement because the business area has very limited room for agility due to strong governance requirements or because of the culture and strong resistance to change. Process Improvement is a very well defined discipline that has tools and metrics that can easily be used to measure the benefits delivered by transition to Agile. This webinar presents some options for improving processes that have an Agile component but are not entirely Agile.

A Strategy-Driven Approach to Regulatory Implementation

by Alexandra Wong
June 06, 2019 | 59:55 | Views: 1,265 | PDUs: 1.00 | Rating: 4.35 / 5

Less than half of organizations consistently report high strategic alignment in their project management practices despite established research linking business success to strategic alignment in projects.

The Case for an Executive Project Management Office for the Intelligence Community

white paper
by Kane Tomlin

Both law enforcement and the military rely on and make up part of the IC. Though the efforts are continuous and cyclical, there are numerous one-time activities that are not replicable, and are designed to answer specific questions for policy makers and other consumers of intelligence. The sum effect of an IC PMO may prove invaluable when trying to improve the efficiency and accuracy of the IC.
