The tyranny of the annual budget plagues some project management organizations (PMOs). Beholden to an extensive, manual process each year, PMO decision-making then becomes a byproduct of budgeting for annual, not strategic, planning. Carina Hatfield, Planview® product manager, will examine continuous, strategic planning and the real impact it can have on business outcomes and results during the annual Camp IT PMO/Portfolio Management conference in Las Vegas on Monday, Feb. 29.
In a recent CIO QuickPulse Survey of IT leaders, 85 percent report their organizations deviate from the approved annual plan several times per year to meet internal and market demands. During this presentation at Camp IT, Hatfield will provide more insights from this recent survey, including how to proactively manage the challenges around overcommitting resources in PMOs and focusing on the need for innovation and agility in planning. She will also discuss how to readjust priorities for new, incoming demand and existing work to successfully pave the way in today’s digital transformation.
Carina Hatfield, Product Manager, Planview: As a CPA, MBA and Planview consultant for six years, Hatfield has helped customers implement Planview Enterprise and improve their strategic, forecasting and planning processes. Now a member of Planview’s product management team, she brings valuable insight to the planning side of Planview Enterprise, incorporating new capabilities for today’s real-world planners and dynamic business environments.
