Enterprise Management Association-International, Inc™, (EMA-I), an independent association helping member companies improve operational performance, today announced it has signed Planview®, the leading independent provider of enterprise-wide portfolio management solutions, as a Foundation Sponsor. EMA-I was formed to help organizations more effectively manage change and improve operational performance by providing a platform for individual members and professional teams to access expert knowledge and thought leadership, network with industry peers and share best practices.
"In the new normal business environment, successful companies must harness change and exhibit excellence from operational planning to execution,” said Greg Gilmore, President and COO of Planview. “We see the potential for EMA-I to strengthen individual and organizational competencies in this regard, which is why Planview chose to participate as a Foundational Sponsor. We encourage other like-minded organizations to join us in sponsoring and building out this network."
Created for professionals managing transformation, operational performance, portfolio planning or business integration, EMA-I was designed to improve cross-functional effectiveness through actionable services for members including resources, learning programs and virtual collaboration. The organization was founded to bridge the business lifecycle gap between strategy and execution through the following objectives:
- Create and develop an awareness and recognition of the need to move beyond project and program management as a discipline to advancing positive changes across the entire lifecycle of business management functions
- Provide a forum for knowledge sharing by actively promoting new ideas and approaches
- Help members bridge the gap between strategy and execution and also reduce organizational silos
- Develop and strengthen organizational and individual member competencies
“We are pleased to have Planview as one of our Foundation Sponsors,” said Jim Carras, Executive Director of EMA-I. “We share a common value in helping an enterprise to become effective in translating strategic objectives into operational excellence."
