Join us in the March Edition of our FREE PM Webinar Series, where we will be going over Data Governance Program Management

Data governance projects present a unique set of management challenges that can stymie many experienced information system project managers. This complex organizational and technical practice requires a tailored methodology to ensure that the project is well-organized, analyzed and executed, delivering value to the organization. A program approach to data governance is important to the success of the effort

This presentation by renowned data governance expert Anne Marie Smith will offer a methodology for creating a successful data governance program based upon her actual experiences at several companies. Attendees will gain an understanding of the importance of managing a data governance program effectively, the critical success factors of data governance, offer some suggestions for avoiding common problems, and how to extend the data governance program into the organization’s culture and projects.

In this presentation you will learn:

  • The critical success factors of data governance
  • How to establish the data governance program
  • How to select the right stewards and other participants
  • Roles and responsibilities of the data governance entities (councils, teams)
  • How to develop the initial project team and manage the program and subsequent projects

And that's not all! Project Management Professionals (PMPs) will earn a FREE PDU for attending this event which they can put forth towards their general PDU requirements. Certified Data Management Professionals (CDMPs) will earn a free CDMP Professional Development /Recertification Credit for attending this event.

Join PMAC President Kevin Aguanno in our Second FREE Webinar of this Year

When asking people why they want to use agile delivery methods, one of the most common reasons I hear is that they want to “deliver faster.” It seems that there is a widespread frustration with the way administrative bureaucracy, inefficient development processes, and overburdening governance processes impede project performance. In many cases, an apparently simple, short development project cannot be delivered quickly because of the process and governance overheads that stretch the project out across the calendar and act as a multiplier on the estimated project budget.


Newly Certified Agile Project Managers for January 2013

Morley Selver, Director of Certification, would like to congratulate 4 more individuals who successfully passed the Certified Agile Project Manager exam during the month of January 2013. Their names are now listed on the Directory of Certified Agile Project Managers.

Special congratulations go to Daniel Mair who is now one of only a handful of individuals who have been able to score a perfect 100% on the exam.
