The Impact of Diversity on Project Management
Organizations today are faced with ever-evolving, ever more demanding and diverse customers. And Project Managers are tasked with driving efforts that meet those evolving needs. How can you help your organization keep up with and even gain get ahead of those changing needs? This session will explore that question and others.
At the end of this session participants will be able to:
describe what diversity truly is and why it is so important;
understand why we fail to engage the people who could make our projects successful;
identify ways to help your projects and organization perform better by leveraging diversity.
Cost: Member $20, Non-Member $25
Grow Your Skills
It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. The PMP credential is a critical component, but in recent years the project management discipline has moved towards more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies. In addition to the traditional waterfall approach several new emerging methodologies are now in high demand. Training and credentialing in these methodologies is becoming highly sought after among Project Management Professionals and is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
