#ChampionOfChange, project managers, my fellow projectmanagement.com friends and online followers, I am back again signing in from Mumbai – Bollywood of India. In less than 4 weeks, I would be in the Hollywood – Los Angeles for the PMI Global Congress 2018.

Needless to say, the preparation is in full swing for this great conglomerate of #ChampionOfChange. As I build my schedule I retrospect on my learnings from #PMIEMEA18.

#PMIEMEA18 I focussed on the “projects of the future” and sessions which provided insights on artificial intelligence, machine learning and digital transformation.  What I learned from these sessions that we need to become more “human” in this era of digital disruption.

As a refresher Please check out the #PMIEMEA18 conference summary here. Keeping along the same theme this time, I will focus on area of robotics, artificial intelligence, along with the human aspects of problem solving, virtual teams, knowledge management, change management and diversity.  Here is my schedule:

Oct 6, 2018 : Day 1

#302 Opening General Session and Keynote Speaker: Jon Dorenbos - "Life Is Magic"

#313 Knowledge Management: An Emerging Competitive Advantage—Trends, Urgency, and Techniques

#328 Rogue One : A powerpoint story

#349 There's a Robot in My Meeting!

I plan to wind up my day by attending the Gala dinner, the Oscars of project management, an event which recognizes the best of the best #ChampionOfChange in the field of project management.

Oct 7, 2018 : Day 2

401 General Session and Keynote Speaker: Cam Marston - "Five Generations in the Workplace"

#407 The Future Lies in Diversity and Inclusion: Are You an Inclusive Leader?

#517a Who Wants to Be a More Successful Project Manager? Here's Your New Lifeline: Ask the Crowd!

I will speak on crowdsourcing and how it can improve agility and innovation in this era of disruption. In this regard I would like to know your opinion on crowdsourcing.  Please take the polls to help me to get the voice of the “crowd”.
