PMI Global Congress – Reflections, Part I
Wow, what a conference! I cannot remember any conference or professional meeting I ever attended where there was such a wealth of knowledge, interesting people, inspiring ideas. It will take a time to digest all the information. All I can say is that I highly recommend this conference to anyone seriously interested in project management – and leadership.
The sessions I attended dealt with project leadership (vs. simple project management), complexity of projects, PMOs, communication to and for executives. In a nutshell?
- The insights about how to set up and manage PMOs were not new but re-assuring.
- Project leadership becomes ever more important in a complex world.
- Effective project leaders manage executives to act for the success of a project.
Now, there is much more to it. Of course, there is. And I will write more about it in the days and weeks to come. So stay tuned.
