Portfolio Resource Planning is front and center in the minds of business executives across all industries...
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 1, 2010
"The 2010 Resource Planning Summit is a thought leadership event aimed at providing a platform for marquee organizations to announce the sparkling results they have recently achieved in the now crucial arena of resource planning. 100% of the 2009 Summit attendees endorsed the event as a 'valuable' contribution to their professional skills," stated Peter Heinrich, Founder & CEO of PDWare. "Portfolio Resource Planning is front and center in the minds of business executives across all industries, and the Summit is an event that allows executives and managers with resource planning responsibilities to compare and validate their methods with peers," added Heinrich.
Project Management Professionals (PMPs) can earn up to 15 PDUs towards their recertification requirements and New Product Development Professionals (NPDPs) can earn a certificate towards their recertification programs. Phil Wolf, Vice President of Product Development for PDWare, believes that members of these key industry groups will use the findings from this conference to make a transformational difference in their firms. Wolf says "Resource Planning is one of the highest impact management disciplines, but finding managers with successful experience is very difficult. This conference puts managers who participate in learning organizations like PDMA and PMI together with managers who have the practical knowledge. It is a potent combination."
VPs and Directors from organizations such as Medtronic, Emulex, Life Technologies, Bank of America and IDEXX Laboratories are among the featured industry speakers. Jeff Thomas, VP of IDEXX Laboratories, will tell why he abandoned spreadsheets and how he discovered a new way to determine which projects in a portfolio can be successfully completed. Tom Hughes, SVP of Emulex, the leader in converged networking solutions, will describe how his organization created a disciplined planning process and produced a galvanizing communication device for Emulex stakeholders and execs. Returning speakers Peter Heinrich of PDWare and Brad Hedstrom of Life Technologies will follow up on their highly rated presentations from last year.
"Last year I thought the speakers presented significant and compelling stories of achievement; this year's agenda is even stronger" stated Dick Rutledge, Summit Director.
