IT Business Partner Buzz - October

17/10/2018 16:00 to 17/10/2018 17:00

Topic: Moving away from managing a list of projects to Portfolio Management

IT Departments manage an extensive list of projects. However, the decisions on which projects are prioritised bear little resemblence to the overall strategy. This leaves the IT department to poor governance practices, such as "first past the post" project approvals, vague prioritisation criteria or inconsistent prioritisation decisions

What foundations can we put in place to enable more effective decision making?

Jon Baxter will prepare a short discussion document on the topic and send it out one week before for the signed up forum members to review and then debate the practical application in the meeting. This will give us great insight on how we can do things differently.
The "Buzz" series of meetings are informal and open invitation meetings to all people interested in Strategic IT partnerships, every other month. These are not webinars but meetings where discussion online is held using gotomeeting. Maximum attendance is limited to 25. First come first served.

This talk continues to evolve with input from the attendees, it lasts an hour and will cover the following themes:

- Short discussion document by the host -  Voted by you - from the last talk
- Open discussion about the talk, questions and debate
- Vote for next months short talk
- News / Events / Plugs

A recording of the previous session and content is available for attendees who have subscribed to the online forum.

Attendance to this meeting also allows entry to the online Forum, where questions and answers from training courses and other premium content is posted.
