PM Wars at the PMI 2017 Global Conference pitches you head to head against other attending PMs in a test of your Project Management knowledge. You'll have 90 seconds to answer as many questions as possible. You get +2 points for a correct answer and -1 for a wrong answer. You are allowed to skip questions, but only three times.
This tournament will be conducted using a single elimination style bracket where the most knowledgeable PMs will advance. Registration will be available at the PM Wars booth at the start of the event; slots are limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
The tournament rounds will last throughout the PMI Global Conference, cumulating with a final battle to determine which PM's knowledge stands above the crowd! Prizes will be granted for first and second place:
Bose Quiet Comfort 25 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones for Apple devices.
Fitbit Charge 2.
NOTE: Participants must be in attendance at Global Conference and able to compete in their chosen or assigned time slots. Anyone not able to compete at their time(s) will forfeit their competition and the other PM will advance.
Date: 10/28/2017 (Sat.)

With the rise of experiential learning, case studies have gained traction as a fundamental teaching tool in every subject area, and they have proven to be the most requested instructional resource by project management faculty internationally. PMJ is responding to the needs of instructors by launching a new section that provides full-length cases and instructor’s manuals for classroom or consulting use. See the Call for Submissions for more details.
