| | Leave a comment

The APM Project Management Awards are a celebration of the excellence in project management, recognising the achievements of both individuals and companies for over 20 years now. This year’s awards’ ceremony will be held at the London Hilton on Park Lane on November 2nd, and we’re delighted to be attending the event yet again. There have been a number of preliminary events dating all the way back to April, so the awards are greatly anticipated by all involved. The awards dinner is known for being the one of the most glamorous events of the year and is a great chance for people to really enjoy themselves whilst acknowledging the fine work achieved in the field of project management.

The awards are focused on the outputs and outcomes of projects, i.e. what they aim to achieve, and what their success gives back to the profession. Winners of the highly-coveted trophy (and winners in the past) act as prime examples of the invaluable contribution that project professionals provide in all sections of society. Continue reading >>

Project Virtual Conference 2015

| | 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 >>

As Julia White, General Manager of Microsoft’s Office division said, “Today, I’m here to say SharePoint. SharePoint, SharePoint, SharePoint”.

So let’s talk SharePoint. At the end of August, Microsoft announced the IT preview of SharePoint Server 2016 was being made available to the public. Since then, there has been plenty of time for users and developers alike to get their teeth into what Microsoft has to offer with the latest edition of the collaboration platform. But, since the full release won’t be here till the first quarter of next year, we thought now was a good time to review some of the new and improved features that you can currently experience in the preview version of SharePoint 2016.
