July 30, 2020

Real-Time Portfolio & Project Management at Rogers – A conversation with Michelle Boutin, Director of Operations (PMO), and Cristian Lazar, Senior Manager, Service Management Tools

This webinar will be a case study of how Rogers moved from a fragmented approach for Project and Portfolio Management to a consolidated platform using Confluence, Jira and Jira Service Desk along with the main planning engine: BigPicture by SoftwarePlant; other apps include Comalatech’s Document Management, Insight, Eazy BI, plus others.

We are pleased to have Michelle Boutin (Business lead) and Cristian Lazar from the Enterprise Support team from Rogers speak with Miles Faulkner (Co-CEO, Blended Perspectives) about the journey especially the challenge of using Agile to build a PPM solution that spanned:

  • Intake
  • Enterprise Portfolio Management
  • Project management and status reporting
  • Overall analysis and reporting

Finally, we will be discussing the next stages in Rogers’ journey towards a real-time PPM solution.
