The 3rd annual PMI Talent & Technology Virtual Symposium will equip participants with the skills to address current challenges and the roadmap to guide them through the constant change of the future. Our lineup of speakers will examine the ways in which project professionals have responded to crisis and share lessons to evolve beyond it.
We start the new decade with a bang as we present the 13th edition of our annual virtual conference and exhibition! Whether you’re a seasoned PM or new to the field, PMXPO provides an excellent opportunity to learn, network, earn PDUs and broaden your perspective on project management. This year’s show is headlined by keynote speaker Cara Brookins, a bestselling author who rebuilt her broken family by building her own house watching “how-to” videos on YouTube.
The PMI® Organizational Agility Conference returns bigger and better than ever as we examine evolving approaches to resilient value delivery! To remain relevant in the VUCA world, organizations and delivery professionals need to build change resilience—the ability to remain in a state of change while delivering value. This virtual conference will explore the concept of change resilience with professionals who are driving it within their organizations—and those who are living it as part of their own development.
Leading change is an essential leadership capability, especially during these unprecedented times. Your leaders play a critical role in dealing with this crisis across your organization and within its teams. Leading through change is not easy under regular business circumstances, let alone during a crisis. As change experts we know that living in a VUCA world, characterized by Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity, is the backdrop for what motivates strategic change and the need for leadership agility. COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is testing leaders’ agility on multiple levels. This webinar, hosted by Dr. Wendy L. Heckelman, noted author and change expert, provides practical frameworks and tips to help leaders, at all levels, “change and thrive.” Specifically, this webinar develops and strengthens leaders’ change capabilities by focusing on: • Agility • Change leadership • Execution
This session will discuss the use of Agile Techniques in implementing Organizational Change Management. This presentation will be focused exclusively on Organizational Change Management using the Disciplined Agile process-decision toolkit to realize the benefits.
VUCA , an acronym that stands for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity, has become a buzzword in management and business circles. It has added a new dimension to management principles and practice this requires a fresh approach to adapt to the new situations that are emerging in business and industry. Over the years project management standards have been adapting to industry practices and through its revisions introducing new topics and areas of knowledge. The objective of the standards has been to present information that is relevant and valid for today's operations. Various project management standards have been studied to assess if the four parameters of VUCA have been included and discussed and if they are adequate for the practising project manager to function effectively.

Each year, the strategy team at the Project Management Institute conducts an assessment of global, long-term trends across a range of key issue areas. Conducted since 2007, this annual report examines and evaluates the global trajectory of major trends in everything from climate change to shifting demographics—and explores how these trends are impacting the world of project management and project professionals.
In this white paper, Gina Abudi, author of Implementing Positive Organizational Change: A Strategic Project Management Approach, will provide best practices for effective communications to engage employees in change initiatives.
Project management is primarily an integrative job. This includes the integration of change management principles and activities throughout the project lifecycle. Unfortunately, many practitioners--regardless of their backgrounds--find it difficult to integrate strong change management principles and techniques with project management practices. PMI standards hold many of the keys required for developing structured and robust change management activities without the need to create a separate or adjunct change management plan.
Every once in a while, we get into an extensive debate about the role, presence, impact and future of the project economy. But to put not too fine a point on it: We have always lived in a project economy. It's just that it hasn't been very evenly distributed.
The Project Economy outlined in 2019 was driven from the convergence of tech, energy and infrastructure. COVID-19 forced a digital upskilling and appreciation for alternative energy that has accelerated the transition.
With remote teams the rule, not the exception, it has become more difficult than ever to keep team members and stakeholders informed, aligned and engaged. One tool that can help is the decision log: a simple listing of why, when and how decisions are made, as well as relevant details.
The more uncertain the times, the more adaptability we need. We need to recognize that things have changed. In the age of COVID-19, we don’t know when we will find a new “normal"—which is probably longer away than we might like.
For employees to feel safe returning to the workplace and adhere to the protections once they get there, they must fully buy-in. They must have confidence in the overall plan while adopting and utilizing changes to the new workplace. To earn their buy-in, we must engage employees throughout the planning and implementation in purposeful and practical ways.
