December Community News You Can Use

Coming Soon: An Enhanced Webinar Experience!

December Book Club Announced!

Join Us for the PMI Talent Management Conference 2017

Celebrate “Giving Back” by Joining PMIEF in Reaching its Mission!

Coming Soon: An Enhanced Webinar Experience!

Categories: webinar

Exciting times are ahead here in the community! As part of our commitment to providing community members an enjoyable experience, we regularly make updates to the user experience. Part of that update will be a new way to view webinars within the community!

Starting in January 2018, we will move from the Adobe Connect platform to WebEx to deliver all webinars on ProjectManagement.com. What does that mean for you? The look of the webinars will be different, but you will still experience the same great content. The chat pod will be available, as well as the Q&A pod; however, you will be able to choose whether or not you see that information as you're viewing the webinar. And, yes, we will still report PDUs on behalf of PMI members.

Now for the fine print...

At rollout, the mobile webinar experience will not be supported. This is because the WebEx mobile app does not authenticate member information from ProjectManagement.com when entering the platform. That means that unless you're viewing the webinar on a laptop or desktop computer, you won't be able to view it (that includes tablets/phablets). We are working to ensure that this issue gets resolved quickly, so please bear with us in the meantime.

We hope you're as excited about this update as we are! Stay tuned to The Critical Path blog for FAQs and additional information regarding this change in the very near future.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out!

Let's Talk Consulting with Peter Block

Categories: consulting, webinar

Peter Block, author of Flawless Consulting: A Guide to Getting Your Expertise Used, will be joining us on 10 June 2015 from 12pm – 1pm EDT to discuss the concepts of his book with book club members and you can participate! Simply register for the webinar and you can join us on the live day. 

When the landmark best-seller Flawless Consulting was first published more than three decades ago, it was quickly adopted as the "consultant's bible." With his legendary warmth and passion, Peter Block explained how to deal effectively with clients, peers, and others. The book continues to speak to people in a support function inside organizations as well as to external consultants.

We would love for you to join the discussion! While the book club is closed to new members, there are many other opportunities to stay involved and participate! If you’ve read his book, share your thoughts with us below!
