Innovative-e is hosting Executive Insights: How Three D.C. Organizations Achieved Work Management Success, an executive breakfast event sponsored by Microsoft®. The event, held October 8, 2010, from 7:30 am to 11 am, will be located at The Ritz Carlton hotel in Tyson’s Corner McLean, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. Executives will gain deeper insights into how SharePoint® and Microsoft® Project can help their organization deliver successful work management solutions, including team collaboration, business process automation, project management and executive reporting. The event is by invitation only; however, CEOs, CIOs, CTOs, PMO directors, program managers, project managers, and executive decision makers may request an invitation by visiting ExecutiveInsightsDC.com/.
“One of the major challenges organizations face when it comes to the successful adoption of new technologies to be used as an enterprise solutions platform is the lack of committed and long-term buy-in from executives,” said Dux Raymond Sy, PMP, managing partner of Innovative-e. "A key factor is often decision makers’ limited understanding of the platform benefits versus the obstacles for successful implementation. It is imperative that executives have the full scope of how these technologies can be fully maximized for their organizations, including the impact of all technical and organizational change issues.”
Arpan Shah, Director of Microsoft Project and former Director of the SharePoint Technical Product Management team, will kick off the meeting, which will then be facilitated by leading SharePoint industry expert and thought leader, Dux Raymond Sy, PMP. Sy is managing partner of Innovative-e and author of SharePoint for Project Management. CEO of Mindsharp, Bill English (MCSE, MCSA, MVP, MCT), will present “Top 10 Best Practices to Achieve SharePoint Success.” English is an industry leader and educator specializing in SharePoint and Microsoft technologies, as well as the author of 12 books on Exchange and SharePoint products, including Microsoft® Office SharePoint® Server 2007 Best Practices. Three Washington, D.C. area organizations will share their success stories of how they leverage SharePoint and/or Microsoft Project as their work management solution in the following case study presentations:
Business Process Re-Engineering and Improved Healthcare Outcomes
Presenter: Marie-Michelle Strah, Ph.D., Lead Business Consultant for Aquilent
