Daptiv to Present on Portfolio Management Best Practices at Project Management Institute's PMO Symposium

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Nov 4, 2011) - Daptiv, the on-demand leader in project portfolio management software, today announced that Dave Blumhorst, vice president of professional services at Daptiv, will be presenting at the upcoming PMO Symposium, hosted by the Project Management Institute in Orlando. Daptiv will also be hosting product demonstrations and showcasing its innovative PPM solutions at trade booth 7 on the symposium showroom floor.

Blumhorst's session, "Portfolio Management: Why Theory is Rarely Put into Practice," takes place on Monday, Nov. 7 at 10:15 a.m. He will review common PPM practices, drawing on his personal experience as a CIO and PMO director to explore which practices are most beneficial for the different types of PMOs. These include portfolio planning and organization based on strategic goals, investment classes, and business units. Blumhorst's presentation will also evaluate how project performance is monitored and aggregated into portfolio performance, and examine the often difficult topic of measuring tangible benefits at both the project and portfolio levels.

The PMO Symposium is an educational forum that brings together PMO practitioners, portfolio and program managers, organizational leaders, and others with an interest in establishing or growing the value of organizational project management and the PMO. The symposium is the premier conference for enterprise project management leaders, and will discuss 2011's hottest topics for the PMO, including PMO agility and resource and demand management.
