May - Earned Value Balanced Scorecards

 

Using Earned Value is a must for government contractors and those businesses wanting to “do more with less.” Balanced Scorecards are the fundamental management tool for managing any diverse group of people. Integrating these two powerful business methodologies and metrics constitutes the state-of-the-art technology for today’s management challenges.

 

Beyond the requirement, Earned Value Balanced Scorecards are essential to running larger size projects. No consultant would recommend you based your decisions solely on time and money. Yet, current project management technology specially provides these limitations. Earned Value Balances Scorecards takes managing projects to the next level of being more informed, making more balanced decisions and having more visibility into issues.

 

WE KNOW HOW TO MAKE IMPLEMENTING EARNED VALUE BALANCED SCORECARDS EASIER AND MORE ACCURATE!

 

Merging both business technologies could be challenging and time consuming. We would like to show you how to do it within an hour, without added work or resistance from your team. Within our seminar, we will show how how to use Earned Value Balanced Scorecards to increase your team’s reliability in completing tasks on-time and within-budget, while maintaining your organization’s quality standards. The reliability that is increased could be up to 80%. That means the ability to nail deadlines, even and especially in the most challenging circumstances. Join us to learn how a team’s process knowledge and drive can be quantified and used within your Earned Value Balanced Scorecard (EVBSC) to make significant increases in productivity and quality.

 

This is a 2-hour, complimentary seminar from 6 to 8 PM in the West Los Angeles area for those interested in learning more about how to create and use EVBSC reports.

 

Attend our 2-hour, complimentary seminar and find out how to combine these two powerful business paradigms and use the essential information to more easily reap the rewards of increased success within your organization.

 

July - Meeting Deadlines using Quality of Life Principles

 

You can more consistently meet deadlines by creating a better quality of life in the workplace. There is a basic relationship between quality of life and meeting deadlines. When you take advantage of this relationship, life at work becomes more fulfilling as business goals are reliably achieved.

 

Here are some questions that will be answered during this 2 hour seminar held in the West Lost Angeles area from 6 to 8 PM.

  • How does quality of life at work relate to organizational excellence?
  • Can a leader communicate quality of life to the employees and talk about productivity improvement at the same time?
  • What single measurement can objectively identify both work place quality of life issues and productivity improvements opportunities?
  • Is quality of life related to motivation and how can it be used as a leadership asset?
  • Come discover these answers for yourself during an hour of humor, anecdotes and lessons learned. We will plainly talk about practical experiences and our field experience in using quality of life principles to achieve business goals “faster, better, cheaper” with greater ease and benefit to all.

     

    November - How to Use Knowledge Validating Metrics

     

    Knowledge Management (KM) systems just got more essential! This 2-hour seminar is based on the presentation given at the SALT Conference.

     

    There are many methodologies and technologies that focus on collecting knowledge. Yet, is it only knowledge that an organization is really collecting? How much bias that this knowledge contains and is it knowledge that is needed? What is the quantitative value of this knowledge to your customer, business and workforce? How efficiently and effectively can this knowledge be communicated?

     

    These are the key questions that are answered based on a series of demonstrations performed within the government and private sector. Validation of knowledge is recognizing needs within the four tier environments in which tasks and activities are accomplished. This KM 2-hour discussion describes a proven validation process and associated metrics to answer the questions described above.  Come join us for a rousing and revealing fact finding event!
