It's time for regoUniversity! The CA PPM (Clarity) knowledge-sharing event of the year is quickly approaching, and we know you're eager for the details.
Mark your calendar for April 22-26, 2018 and join us at the Lansdowne Resort & Spa in Leesburg, Virginia. This destination hotel is eight miles from Dulles International Airport, just a quick hop from Washington, D.C., in the heart of wine country. Your free time can include the local vineyards, delicious food, and restorative views.
You probably know regoUniversity is the largest CA PPM-dedicated conference, and it stands above the crowd because of Rego's commitment to keeping it all about Project and Portfolio Management (PPM): PPM courses, PPM networking, and PPM best practices.
If CA PPM (Clarity) is your tool of choice, then chances are good that you've either heard about regoU or been an attendee. And once an attendee, always an attendee. In fact, last year the conference started handing out annual collector pins to go on everyone's lanyards. So what's it all about?
Here are five reasons you can't miss this PPM conference.
1. regoU will help you shape CA PPM (Clarity) to your organization's process and vision
"Every year, regoUniversity continues to deliver. It always feels like I'm trying to drink from a fire hose while I'm there. I'm sure I'll be processing the information for weeks and months to come."
CA PPM (Clarity) isn't a casual investment. It's an incredible resource. And a lot of companies wish they had access to the power of this tool. Its end-to-end capabilities are truly astonishing, which is why it's considered best in class by independent industry analysts like Gartner.
But having access to a Magic Quadrant PPM tool and knowing how to effectively utilize it are different matters. Where do you start? How do you build a strong foundation? How can you make sure you don't roll out too much? What's critical, and what's nice to have? How do you train your people? How do you inform your executives? Now that you've accomplished "A," what's "B"?
2. regoU will give you access to Rego's expert guides
"I don’t really know how to classify regoUniversity. It's the best training conference I’ve attended. There is nothing else like it. We had four people from our company attend this year, and regoU had the right classes for each of us."
At Rego Consulting we’ve trained more than 300,000 people in Project and Portfolio Management and guided more than 500 organizations through their PPM journeys, including 35% of Fortune 100 companies and 50% of Fortune 20 companies.
When you come to regoUniversity, regardless of your skill level or area of focus, you'll find the right content for you. We offer classes in technical beginner, technical advanced, governance/functional, basic use, functional training, and technical training. Check out the regoUniversity class schedule here.
Each regoU class is led by Rego expert guides who understand strategic PPM processes. They’ve worked in PMOs, managed and supported instances of PPM, and run large programs. How can you secure user adoption? How do you solidify executive sponsorship? What day-to-day support routines are necessary? How can you make sure you're collecting the right data?
3. regoU is the best place to network with your peers
"I loved the Birds of a Feather lunch event and how we were able to gather by industry. I was able to meet people in the same industry as me, dealing with the same types of challenges. We were able to network and exchange contact information. And I'm sure I'll be contacting them!"
At regoU, you'll sit in classrooms, around round tables, and at Birds of a Feather with companies specific to your industry who have tackled the same challenges.
Last year over 100 companies were represented: technology, health care, automotive, tourism, entertainment, retail, and much more. During regoUniversity you'll get the opportunity to meet and network with people by industry, geography, company size, and even by favorite movie genres!
How does PPM work in health care? How do companies like yours handle demand? What are the steps to maturing financials? What's the roadmap to really utilizing portfolios?
4. regoU is the best CA PPM event available in 2018
"I've attended all the regoUniversity events, and it's now become THE event to attend if you do anything with CA PPM. The sessions are informative, relevant, and cover just about anything you'd need from technical through functional, to administration and governance. Plus it's all about CA PPM—nothing else, and the price is amazing. 10/10"
Our attendees will tell you without hesitation, regoUniversity is THE one event of the year not to miss.
What's new in CA PPM 15.3? What should I know about the new UI? Can we use the OData connector to accent Jaspersoft or switch to Spotfire, Tableau, Power BI, or QlikView? How can we implement Advanced Resource Management? Is there a Project Scheduling package available? What are the best time tracking solutions? Are there pre-developed portlets?
5. regoU is the most affordable Clarity conference
"I was really amazed by the price. It was intimate, well organized, well run, not too large, effective, etc. I really enjoyed it. I learned a lot!"
