Speakers, Papers and Panel Experts for PMI NB’s Annual Professional Development Days

"Innovative Project Management"

Presented by: Project Management Institute New Brunswick (PMI NB)
May 17th - 18th, 2017
Kingswood Lodge, Fredericton, NB

Event Scope

This is a PMI New Brunswick event designed to provide educational and professional development opportunities for members and friends of the Project Management Institute (PMI) New Brunswick. We are excited to bring multi-disciplinary professionals together to increase knowledge, provide networking opportunities and share skills. The event is expected to draw up to 150 attendees, and will be hosted over two days. The event will be combined with PMI NB’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Our theme this year: INNOVATIVE PROJECT MANAGEMENT.

Technical skills are core to project and program management, however, PMI research tells us technical skills alone are not enough in today’s increasingly complex and competitive marketplace. Organizations need value added skills and competencies in leadership and business intelligence to support strategic objectives and make a market difference.  The ideal skill set — PMI’s TALENT TRIANGLE — this is a combination of Technical Project and Program Management, Leadership and Strategic and Business Management expertise.

 In today’s competitive market and fiscal constraints, organizations must continue to do more with less, and this is where the TALENT TRIANGLE meets INNOVATIVE PROJECT MANAGEMENT.  This event will provide topics and information to support Project Managers with innovative ways to deliver results sooner, realize higher returns on investments, and achieve greater organizational strategic alignment.  Today and tomorrow’s Project Managers must be highly motivated to think outside the box and must be truly INNOVATIVE to achieve success.
