Dear Community Member,

Our next webcast and our biennial election for board members events are fast approaching and we hope many of you have considered submitting your nomination to become a board member or have already done so. This month, on April 14th, Peter Kretzu will be joining us. Peter is a Manager within the Strategy Office, Performance Management Division of Independence Blue Cross where his areas of focus are on Governance and PPM Tools. Prior to moving into his role in the Strategy Office, Peter spent the last 14 years building, enhancing and managing PMOs and Program Offices in the Informatics, ISD and Health Services divisions of Independence Blue Cross. Peter is a graduate of Drexel University.
Independence Blue Cross (IBC) will be utilizing Clarity's full suite of products to rollout enterprise solutions and processes around project and portfolio management. Historically, IBC has used numerous legacy systems to manage domain specific projects. A "single source of truth" (complete portfolio) along with forecasting and demand management did not exist at the enterprise level. Below is a high level summary of the functions that will be rolled out throughout 2011:

1.) Project Execution (March 2011) - All corporately funded initiatives will be managed within Clarity so there is one repository for all projects. This includes managing risks, issues, and change requests.
2.) Portfolio/Demand Management (June 2011) - All new initiatives that require funding will utilize this new enterprise process built within Clarity. This new process will help ensure that there is proper alignment with the business strategy as well as help us determine the impacts and interdependencies.
3.) Schedule / Time Management (September 2011) - All programs and projects will create and manage schedules within Clarity including tasks assignment to resources. These resources will also submit their time on a weekly basis, which will allow us to calculate planned and earned value.
4.) Resource Management (March / June / September 2011) - All delivery resources (Developers, Testers, Project Managers, Business Subject Matter Experts) will be managed within clarity. This infrastructure will allow us to perform enterprise capacity planning as well as help optimize the portfolio.
