Welcome to PMI Durham Highlands Chapter!
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Happy New Year!
JANUARY 2021. I personally welcome 2021 with hopes that we can remain diligent long enough to get through this pandemic and back to living, loving, hugging, and seeing our family and friends sooner than later.
My resolution this year is to ‘be present’. I resolve to enjoy each moment for what it is and what it has to offer and let go of what may (or may not) come next. What is your resolution for 2021?
I am personally excited for all the exciting changes coming in the PMBOK 7th Edition! We are moving from a process-based project management methodology to principle-based project delivery that focuses more on outcomes (imagine that!).
Agile is an integrated part of each performance domain (yup, formally known as Knowledge Areas). It is a big shift, but I believe aligned to how so many of us do our jobs day-to-day. I encourage you to sign up for one of the many free webinars that provide an overview of these changes and familiarize yourself, even if you're already certified. It’s interesting stuff.
PMI-DHC is also offering some exciting courses this month, on January 16th join us online for Successful Delivery with Kanban with Travis Birch, and then on the 23rd you can Be Unstoppable! This Leadership Development offering was so well received at the Ontario Chapters Professional Development Day that we decided to offer it just for you. Both are being offered to our membership for just $5.00.
Our monthly meeting on Jan 21st will also guarantee to be informative as we learn new tools and techniques to keep our teams engaged in an online environment.
I look forward to seeing you at one of the many events happening this month, until then I encourage you to ‘be present’ and enjoy this moment.
Don't miss out on a single opportunity... see all future meetings and events.
