From Data to Decision — A Guide to Data Analytics

Presented by Anne Foley, LSSMBB, PMP, Author, Training Consultant at Corporate Education Group


As technology continues to saturate our world; data collection and analysis is a highly sought after skillset. “Show me the data,” is almost as popular of a request as “show me the money.”  In many cases, the two are connected. Solving problems, improving processes, increasing sales and satisfying customers are just a few of the side effects of accurate data collection and analysis; and it’s not just for number crunchers. Everyone can navigate the data collection and analysis culture with a few simple tips and techniques from this webinar. Making good decisions and solving problems the first time should not rely on “luck.”  We’ll show you a better way.

Applying the Business Value Management Life Cycle

Presented by Jacqueline Sanders-Blackman, CBAP, PMP, SAFe Agilist (SA), B2T Training


In today’s development environment, teams are converting to agile in record numbers. However, not everyone is on the bandwagon. There are still a significant number of teams who are sticking with the tried and true traditional development approaches. No matter which side of the methodology fence they are on, teams are faced with a common problem: How can we be sure we are building the right things that have the highest business value at the micro and macro level?

This business value management conversation is one that transcends development approach. It’s the common denominator that determines if you are spending time and money on the right components of your solution.

This session describes a set of techniques for stakeholders and team members to make sure the right conversations are happening at the right time, regardless of your approach. It is important to get these conversations right; some will result in very difficult business decisions. During the session, we will simulate a series of value management conversations and determine the right questions that need to be asked and answered, and the resulting decisions that need to be made. We will also discuss how to establish a method to measure your progress as you demonstrate the value being delivered.




·        Determine the right things to build and in what order

·        Ensure the value conversation is happening at the right time

·        Measure that the value delivered matches the conversations
