February 2018 Meeting: Perspectives of a PM's Toolbox

Thursday, 22nd 2018, 6:30PM-9:00PM

Description: 
At ‘An Evening with PMI Co-founder Jim Snyder’  on April 20, 2017, Jim made the statement that (and I am paraphrasing), "Agile approaches are no more than another tool in the arsenal of a Project Management Professional."

Jim’s statement got me thinking about the tools I have used in my career of over 40 years.I began as a programmer for the Federal Government where intuitively I began to think of isolating certain portions of code for reuse. This reusable code concept became libraries of objects that could be reused in other programs and systems.

In my career, I’ve used management consulting concepts, business analysis tools, strategic IT planning approaches, project management practices, Project Management Office (PMO) theories, and Agile and Scrum procedures.

My LinkedIn profile begins with “A Catalyst for Change”. Change has been a dominant theme in my career. The challenge is to ‘Unthink yourself, your organization to Create New Possibilities’.
