We're pleased to announce that as part of our overall content approach, PMI will launch a new initiative focusing on four industry segments this year, particularly in the fields of IT, Finance, Government and Construction. And as part of that focus, we want to highlight some existing PM Network content on ProjectManagement.com to engage the community, and to learn more about their specific industry needs.
The idea is for ProjectManagement to create, highlight, and maintain four dynamic, active threads for the community — one for each industry: IT, Government, Finance and Construction.
To start, we have selected three pieces of content from the IT sector to help launch the first discussion thread posted within the following links within Project Management Central:
1. How Do You Help Define Data’s Role in your Organization’s Strategy? https://www.projectmanagement.com/discussion-topic/135655/How-do-you-help-define-data-s-role-in-your-organization-s-strategy-
2. Digital Acceleration through a Global PMO
3. How do you determine if an Agile, Waterfall or hybrid approach is best for your project?
We welcome you to engage in these discussions, and please stay tuned for forthcoming postings!
Join hundreds of project, programme and portfolio managers from multinational organisations around the world to share best practises, identify new trends and reinforce core skills. Hosted by PMI, the world leader in project management advocacy, collaboration, education and research.

When some people think of the word "innovation", they might associate it with the word "invention." In fact, these two words are not the same. Innovation often acts as the spark that ignites change within an organization or business to foster continued relevancy within the marketplace. And these changes come about through the help of projects and programs.
As you may have noticed, this month's community theme is innovation! Braden Kelley shows us how making innovation happen has a lot to do with the roles we play versus individual personalities in his article "Innovation: A Team Sport."
On 21 July, Bruce Harpham will deliver a webinar to the community that shows us how some of the greatest innovations in the history of technology came about during the webinar titled "Lessons from the History of Innovation." If you haven't already registered, make sure you do!
And you can always find templates and other resources to help you by visiting the Innovation practice area right here on ProjectManagement.com!
Join in the conversation! Please share with us in the comments below some ways innovation has helped you drive a project forward. We'd love to hear from you!
