Edit: That should be 2020
This is an outright promotion (of a partner event therefore more than justified)Just wondering again...
Hi Martti,For me I can say, that I would have liked to join, but December is my busiest month of the year and the time of day does not fit well with my calendar.
If it had been split on more days with fewer hours a day there would have been a better chance of me joining some of the sessions.
I love the possibility of having online events, however, to me, they need to be short and precise, whereas if you go off for a conference I expect it to be a more full calendar, as I am then there and focused on that.
Hope it makes sense and that the academy and sessions were good.
Sorry, I was not aware that the participant limit was reached. When looking at the list, I only recognized three from the Nordics.
The presentations should be soon available. I also have a faint recollection of something about recordings.(The presentations from 2019 Academy are there
https://www.pemari.com/academy/clarity-ppm-academy-2019-downloads.html)Of course one prioritizes these offerings and other duties personally and based on preferences. On the other hand an event like this ties the organizers as well and they must also rightsize their efforts.
Online events are not the same as meeting people face to face, but the Niku and CA Worlds are not there and not likely to come back any more. Neither are the UG meetings there. In UK they used to be quartely and in the Nordics annual or seminannual. There are online training classes, Youtube videos, Brighttalk sessions, Broadcom webinars, but they are not really interactive and networking events.
As long as COVID is running amok online meetings are the best we can get.
Thanks for Pemari Academy and keep up the good work.
Hi Martti, Pia, Sannamari,
Martti - Thank you so much for starting this thread and your support for the Pemari Academy. It was great to text/speak to you and I hope to see you again next year.
Pia - Thanks for the feedback. We agree about December. End of year is not a great time for any organisation but we had hoped that the lack of festive parties this season might have freed up a little bit of time in people's diaries. The original plan was to run the event as a face to face event in the summer so we had to shift to online. We are hoping to go back to the original format for next years event but we need to see how the pandemic pans out.
Sannamari – We apologise about the fact that we had to prioritise registration/access but we heavily underestimated the demand from consultancies. We had twice as many registrations from consultancies than companies using Clarity PPM which we find both flattering and slightly worrying at the same time. It was definitely one of our major lessons learnt from the event. As we mentioned in the email, we'd be more than happy to setup a knowledge sharing forum where we help each other. If you are interested, let me know.
I'm glad one of your team got to join and that she enjoyed the Academy. We will share the sessions externally once we've had time to review and trim the recordings.
If there is anything else, let me know. Happy to help.
You know the 2019 slides are available even if you did not register.
