Have you ever heard your CEO say: "In these times of financial crisis and cuts - why do we need SCM? That is just an additional cost and delay? What value does it bring to the company?" Or maybe you have had problems in general explaining the value of SCM (and your work) in a way your CEO could understand? Do you feel ignored by developers when you try to enforce the SCM routines? Are the project managers not appreciating the SCM work you put into their projects?

As the professional SCM person, you possess a unique knowledge about how SCM is carried out in your organization. How can you exploit this knowledge better? How can you contribute to your company’s success? And how can you teach your co-workers and managers to use this knowledge on SCM to improve their ways of working?

This is an interactive one-day tutorial on how you can improve your SCM capabilities and influence in the organisation. You will learn about modern agile and developer-centric SCM work and where the CMMI® framework fits in. You will also learn how to exploit your SCM data to measure, analyse and promote your SCM knowledge, and learn new and better ways of interacting with both co-workers and managers.
