Final Summary of PMI EMEA Congress 2019 – my 3 top Lesson’s Learned



Hello PMI Family

Hope you are having a great work week after the hectic last weekend at the PMI Global Conference. It was great pleasure to see many of you there. PMI had multiple live events last week: Leadership Institute Meeting, Global Conference, Seminars World. No matter which sessions you were on, they were loaded with lots of practical experience nuggets.  

Do you have any thick binders that you got from some training that is gathering dust right now? I sure have many of those in my basement from early in my career. Now I have learnt how to make live training to work. Take one item and put it to work immediately till it becomes second nature.  I am going to get better at building on my strengths, use of technology, social media to improve my effectiveness and productivity and get better at project selection. Note that these are only the top 3 to start with. Like you, I learnt much more but I need to start somewhere immediately.

Yes, now that I have made it public, I am accountable to all of you to execute to the plan :-)

Think about what are your top three and share it. It will make you go thru the process and program your subconnscious mind to do something about it.

TIll I see you next time, stay connected.

Nic and PMI colleagues:

I will be presenting to colleagues in my organization, including program managers, at midweek on my PMI Global Congress experience. I'd like to focus on these three points in my work going forward:

-I will be working to take the fundamentals described in the Agile Practice Guide and apply them in my organization.

-My colleagues and I will look at what managers and groups (in my organization) are doing with Trello boards and share information across the teams on purpose(s). These board practices could provide support for a conscious move to use of the Kanban Method.

-Applying lessons on virtual communication in my organization These include lessons from the keynote by Nicholas Epley and Sara Gallagher's presentation on the topic. My higher education nonprofit is highly virtual.

I totally agree, Nic: incorporate one new thing at the time. I know, I know, we all want to implement them all now. Unfortunately, you can only do that for so long before you give up on all the new changes.

Interesting - thanks for sharing

That was awesome! You rock, guys! Thank you!
