We were interviewed for a podcast by M Powered Strategies a while back and now it is online - The main subject was about Teamwork (Below is the link):
I would like to thank the Project Management Institute for this great appreciation certificate.
It feels great to be appreciated and I always am proud to be part of this community and contribute / volunteer as much as I can.
Studies show that a person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated and I absolutely believe in this.
This project management community has proven to be a great community in many ways, not only education & knowledge sharing wise but also in terms of Networking.
I've met so many people in person through this community, I interacted with a lot virtually and learned a lot from others. One good recent example is the "Haiku for Project Managers" by Robert Prol.
Robert took project management to another level by defining "The Big Picture" in a few words that are full of deep meanings, rich in experience and in many cases are full of humor. This unique balance between all the latter is great. I did not know what Haiku's were until Robert introduced this form of poetry to me. By time, I became a big fan of his Haiku and he in fact guided me how to write them.
Robert published his first book recently "Haiku for Project Managers" and included words of praise from some of his colleagues in this community on the rear cover page and it was my pleasure to be one of those contributors.
This is an example of what makes this community a great one. You contribute, you help, you learn, you network, you meet people, they motive you and you motivate them.
Thanks for your efforts Robert and congratulations for your new book.
Always Remember: You won't understand the abashed power of a community until you're a part of one.
Recently, many companies are adopting the IPD approach in lieu of the traditional Design-Build for the following reasons:
Today was my first experience in attending a "Virtual Conference". I did attend the PMI Business Analysis Virtual Conference 2016.
Frankly speaking, it was an outstanding experience and definitely exceeded my expectations:
1- LOGIN: Despite the huge number of attendees, the Login was smooth and easy.
2- NETWORKING: Networking was great. I connected on LinkedIn with at least 15 attendees.
3- SESSIONS: Sessions were extremely informative and to the point. I actually now have a much better understanding of Business Analysis.
4- EFFORTS: PMI & XPOCAST teams did a great job. They stayed on top of things and answered inquiries promptly.
I would like to thank the PMI Team for all their efforts and for make our busy life easier by bringing that much value to table / us from home.
This is one reason I enjoy being part of this community.
