Published July 20, 2020
Presented by Karen Greenwalt, Director of Operations for Chief Financial Officer, University of Illinois System Offices | AJ Lavender, Assistant Director, Portfolio and Project Management, University of Illinois System Offices

Often people leading the implementation of new initiatives or response plans have enthusiasm and dedication, but lack specific skills, tools, and methods necessary for success. We will share how University of Illinois has introduced project management tools and processes to help stakeholders implement plans and use resources more effectively. You'll learn how providing a defined path from idea to implementation ensures initiatives are evaluated and prioritized, resources are deployed effectively, and projects are supported correctly.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Promote the importance and value of formal project portfolio management, gaining critical support from participating departments.
  2. Recognize the opportunities to integrate project management concepts or tools for initiatives at varying levels.
  3. Give projects the resources necessary for success, such as highly skilled specialists in business process improvement and project management.
  4. List project management tools and concepts and identify how they can help with project success.
