PMI Palmetto Chapter January 2021 Meeting

01-21-2021 5:45 pm -7:15 pm
$5.00

Due to COVID-19 all chapter meetings in 2021 will continue to be virtual.

Speaker: Beth Ouellette
Topic:  Disciplined Agile

Disciplined Agile is the topic of many conversations across the Agile and PMI Communities. We hear these kinds of questions: Why did PMI add it to their product portfolio? What is Disciplined Agile?  What is the value of Disciplined Agile to Chapter Members? How can you bring value to your team/organization with Disciplined Agile? How do I get started? What is possible for your personal and chapter roadmap? 

Join us to hear Beth Ouellette share answers to all these questions and more. She will guide us through key components of Disciplined Agile as she shares practical applications, analogies and stories to connect the dots. She will even share the roadmap she used for her DA journey that you could leverage too.  Though it is only an hour, we hope to gain a clear understanding of the potential of Disciplined agile for individuals, our members, and our community. You may even discover that you already apply a Disciplined Agile “Way of Working” today!

NOTE:  Fee for event is $5.  Members can receive a discount of $5 by logging in to www.pmipalmetto.org prior to registration.

Topic:  Mind Mapping with MindView software

Tired of sticky notes and whiteboard sessions? Mind Mapping is an effective tool to use in requirements gathering sessions and the construction of the WBS. When Mind Mapping is coupled with technology it simplifies the process and enhances communication. MindView is unique in the way it optimizes the WBS and converts the data to the built in Gantt chart and is ideal for:

§   Brainstorming your WBS in a Mind Map

§   Applying task information and assign resources

§   Exporting to MS Office including Project

§   Converting WBS into a built in Gantt chart

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. PMP certification is a critical component. As project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became high in demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sought after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
