Breakfast Tuesday Meeting - November 14, 2017

TOPIC: Year in Review

PMI RGC 2017 Breakfast Meetings

Presented by Laura Beltemacchi and Gary Halvorsen

The PMBOK does a great job of giving us process tools to track changes as they occur throughout the life of the project.  With all projects there is a very strong human element involved.  Whether the change is about a new technology or business process – projects bring about change.  The focus of the 2017 Breakfast Season will be to provide some soft skills that overlay with PMI processes.  The input for the presentations will be the PMBOK ®Guide 5th Edition and overlaid with key points from Chip Heath and Dan Heaths’ book Switch: How to Change When Change is Hard.  The presentations will begin in January and end in November except for the vacation month of July.
