On 03 November 2010, a group from the Mid-Missouri Chapter gathered to discuss and organize the PMO Forum Network. Our early topics included, types of PMOs, how to staff a PMO, and authority vs responsibility. Now we discuss being remote and exercising our negotiation skills. Please join us for my final meeting as the facilitator to discuss how the focus of the PMO has changed over the past 10 years.
Please note – this is a virtual meeting. Meeting connection information will be sent to participants prior to the meeting.
The Velociteach 2-Day PMI-ACP Exam Prep course covers the history and basic concepts of Agile, its methodologies, strategies—all the key areas of required study for the certification exam. Looking beyond the exam, the course also offers real-world applications of the Agile approach.
The course will include frequent quizzes, exercises, and interactive lessons that require full student engagement. Students will receive the bestselling book in industry on the PMI-ACP Exam by called The PMI-ACP® Exam: How to Pass on Your First Try, written by our founder and CEO, Andy Crowe. In addition to attending the two day class, participants will spend time in InSite, our cutting-edge online classroom, completing PMI-ACP practice exam questions. With two days of intense focus and all the necessary live instruction, materials and post-class support you need to pass, you’ll have everything required for success.
Project Managers produce project status reports on a regular basis. These reports are intended to provide up-to-date status of the project to team members, stakeholders, and project sponsors. However, the truth is that too often project status is derived from inaccurate and/or incomplete information. During this discussion we will look at common problems that lead to inaccurate status reports as well as some techniques that when applied can lead to more truthful reports.
Grab your coffee and breakfast, and plan to join us.
Please let us know you’re planning to join in by registering for the virtual meeting on our website at https://pmimidmo.org. A link to the virtual meeting will be emailed to registrants prior to the event.
