Project and Portfolio Management Readiness Sessions for Microsoft Partners


image

 

The Microsoft UK Project and Portfolio Management team have worked tirelessly to organise various readiness sessions, aimed at Microsoft partners. These sessions include sales readiness training, tailored for sales and pre-sales employees, describing the common pain points customers experience and explaining how a project management can help, along with a sales overview of the Microsoft project management solution. There will also be a technical day in early 2010, aimed at developers and architects, which will cover various aspects of the Microsoft project management solution to a very deep technical level.

 

The first of these readiness sessions will be a series of sales readiness Live Meetings (part of the overall partner readiness Live Series), starting Tuesday 8th September at 4pm. Registration links for all of these Live Meetings are listed below. Register for the first one now- there’s not much time to spare!

 

Details of all the project management readiness training for partners is listed below. If you have any questions, or would like a pdf copy of this information, please contact me directly.
