We stand on the verge of the 20th anniversary of a curious date: one where, for many reasons, the world didn't end. Y2K was a global project of immense proportions, as organizations literally raced against the clock to prevent their information systems from failing as the rest of the world celebrated the dawn of the new millennium. For the most part, they kept going. This webinar takes a retrospective view of the Y2K project, one of the largest coordinated systems efforts that the world has yet seen; it offers an alternative perspective and far more insight into the management underpinnings of how to manage an effort that was complex, diffuse and world-wide. Join Peter de Jager for a look back at a global incident that monopolized the activities of nearly all IT departments through the 1990s. He'll explore what we've learned, what we still have to figure out, and what we are perilously close to once again forgetting.

The journey included “pioneers, settlers and cave-dwellers.” [25 min.]
In 2020, a lot of organizations embraced the idea of donating products and services instead of money. Is that a trend that’s going to continue?
A recent survey on PMOs identifies some interesting, and perhaps worrying, trends--from agile's influence to the percentage of PMOs who are reporting on their own effectiveness.
The complexity faced by organizations today requires teams of people working and learning together so that we may address the dynamically evolving demand of our customers. Yet our organizations are struggling to attract, grow, and retain the right people with the right skills at the right time. To address this dynamic situation we must embrace an agile approach to HR.
More and more PMOs are shifting their focus to consider how projects achieve business outcomes. That sometimes results in a different approach to PMO leadership, and the changes aren’t always positive.
