As part of my continuing association with the AITS.org site, I contributed an article on risk tolerance which was just published on Friday. The article includes a rubric for choosing among alternative risk responses, and some questions to ask at the beginning of a project that can help gauge the organization’s risk tolerance. The original title was a bit pedestrian, so editor John Friscia cranked it up to something a little more click-worthy. If you have some feedback, comments, or alternative thoughts on the subject, leave a comment there. If you have suggestions for future articles, leave a comment here.
I’ve been invited to present at the CAMP IT Portfolio / Program Management Conference to be conducted in Las Vegas, June 18 – 19, 2015. I’ll be presenting on our portfolio management approach and lessons learned from my time at MGM Resorts International. When I joined, we had 23 various properties, each with it’s own HR,Payroll, and timekeeping solution. My assignment was to merge them, so we could eventually implement a new ERP.
If you plan to attend, let me know. I’ll load up my Starbucks card and treat whoever shows up and mentions that you read about the event on my blog.
