| | Leave a comment

We are lovers of all things Project and Portfolio Management here at Program Framework, so this October has been a very enjoyable month for us! At the beginning of the month we attended Project Challenge Expo, where our Director Paul Major spoke about “The changing world of Project Management”. We then went to Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium for the Project Control Expo the following week, for which we were a gold sponsor and got the chance to exhibit in the Partner Showcase, which was a great opportunity to demo our American partner – ProSymmetry’s resource management tool: Tempus Resource. And the best news is we’re still not finished! The final event of this project-filled month, Project Virtual Conference 2015 will run through the 22nd and 23rd of October, and is the first ever online conference dedicated to Microsoft Project, Project Server and Project Online.

24 hours, online, for free

The first of its kind, Project Virtual Conference 2015 is all about the business value behind the proper usage of the Microsoft Project family. Continue reading >>

However, most PPM tools currently only allow limited scope for controlling, changing or modelling changes to their deployment and allocation across projects. Tempus Resource breaks this barrier.

The longest commute in the UK is a 530 mile journey from the Orkney Islands to central London. Even if your daily trip to work is short by comparison (which we hope it would be), you’re not alone in feeling it’s getting longer. The average commute took 45 minutes in 2003, yet had increased to 54 minutes in 2011 according to the latest census data. Few people love their commute – from traffic jams to stressful train journeys or delayed buses, the stress and strain can drain energy from the start and end of your day. Continue reading >>
