Accueil > News and Events > Paris, France, PMGS participates at the PMI Global Congress 2012 – North (...)

Paris, France, PMGS participates at the PMI Global Congress 2012 – North America in Vancouver, Canada, from 20th to 24th of October !

The PMI Global Congress – North America will take place at the Vancouver Convention Centre with more than 100 educational presentations in numerous areas of focus categories and community of practice tracks which you can select the topics and presentation styles of most interest to you. Earn up to 19 professional development units with participation in congress and up to 47 with participation in congress and SeminarsWorld®.

How often does a great opportunity come out of a coffee break chat ? A significant element of any professional development experience is the one-on-one interaction among delegates. Recognizing the importance of such face-to-face connections, PMI provides a number of networking opportunities to allow you to get to know your fellow attendees and make professional connections. Attend the networking sessions to meet your peers and subject matter experts in the project management industry.

PMI Global Congress will be full of fresh ideas, new skills, proven techniques and memorable events such as the Grand Opening Reception in the Exhibit Hall, the Annual PMI Membership Meeting or the PMI Awards Ceremony & Reception. This last one will be a fast-paced and entertaining evening that not only will honor the project management profession, but also will provide attendees the unique opportunity to network with the “best of the best” in project management. While the event is complimentary with congress registration, overwhelming demand means that registration is required.

One of the highlight sessions of the congress will be ‘Transforming and Transformed : The Life Cycle, Role Assignment and Future of the PMO’. Despite organizations’ increasing use of project management techniques and methods, research shows there is a need to match and manage project management skills and processes in ways that maximizes strategic results. A high-functioning project management office (PMO) can play an important role in this regard. Although the PMO has been an organizational reality for at least a decade, it is not monolithic, having no universally accepted definition, design or role assignment and with a life cycle that varies across organizations and industries. While it is often a mechanism for change, it is itself an organizational structure that has frequently been recast, reshaped, reformed and reconstructed. In this session recent research focused on changes in PMOs will be discussed. What do PMOs look like today ? What factors are associated with changes in them ? How and why are PMOs changing ? What does research suggest about their future ? Panelists will include two academic researchers who have conducted a series of studies on PMOs and two practitioners who have led PMOs for large corporations. Designed to be interactive, the session will be enhanced by participants who come prepared for open discussion and the willingness to share experientially-based knowledge.
