Portland SharePoint User Group – March 2013 Event (Project Management and SharePoint)

Portland SharePoint User Group Meeting announcement -Wednesday, March 20, 2013 from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM (PDT), in Portland Oregon.

Our March event will be focusing on  Project Management and SharePoint. We know that many of you have tried to do SharePoint and Agile with or without success. This event we will giving you a great SUCCESS story.


First Talk

Speaker: Josh Moriarty, PMP – Business Analyst, Port of Portland

Title:  SharePoint for ‘Proven’ Project Management

Description: Communication, collaboration, blah, blah, blah…how about accountability, visibility, scalability, and team performance.  It seems like SharePoint project management classes and books tell you about the tool, how it can improve communication and collaboration, but never much detail on how to apply it.

Want to know how to leverage MS Project, SharePoint, Outlook, and Excel together, not redundantly, as a tool set?  Want to keep your finger on the pulse of the project 24/7, stay out of the way of your high performers, and identify who needs help? Want to successfully manage a distributed project team?  Want a templatized tool set and repeatable process that team after team can adopt?  I’ve successfully delivered millions in projects, with teams ranging in size from 5 to 75, comprised of contractors, consultants, internal staff, and virtual members.  I’ll share my tools, processes, and lessons learned after years of continually testing and improving my PMIS suite with each new project team…teams typically with no prior SharePoint experience. While I have a toolset and process that’s proven, there’s still room for improvement.  I’ll discuss where I see SharePoint 2010 taking it to the next level.

Second Session – Let’s build something in SharePoint

Speaker: Scott Ellis – Solutions Architect and President of the PSPUG

Title: Building SharePoint Project Template Sites

Description: So following Josh, I will be pulling out an SharePoint Project Site Template and giving you a tour of how it was built. We will talk about it’s used, how it helped the process, and in the end….you get to take it home as a template along with some tools. That’s right “Freebees”.
