As our 2nd Wednesday falls on Valentine’s Day, I thought many of you would have plans with your spouses or significant others, so this month we will be having our meeting on FEBRUARY 21st (3rd Wed).
Speaker: John Bowen
Topic: Project Management 2.0 - An Introduction and Getting Started
In this talk, John will share with us the key characteristics of Project Management 2.0 and explain why PM 2.0 has emerged in response to the deficiencies of traditional project management. The presentation will emphasize the project manager’s emerging role in strategic planning and project leadership and discuss how to achieve more meaningful information with KPIs, metrics, and dashboards. John will also share with us the current state of PM 2.0 adoption, provide recommendations on how to get started and explain how PM 2.0 can reduce project costs.
