Ways of Working

WMPMI's monthly lunchtime meeting is a one-PDU event on a topic from the PMI Talent Triangle. 

Going Agile with Microsoft PM Tools

With the increase in Agile adoption as reported by our WMPMI members, there is interest in learning more about how the Microsoft Project family of tools can assist with this need. Cindy will be sharing her experience with local and national clients and how they are using these tools to manage Agile projects. This meeting will include live demos and feedback from our audience on the four Ps - Planner, Project for the web, Project Online, and Project desktop. These tools support multiple Agile frameworks including scrum and Kanban. Attendees will also have the opportunity to provide feedback for a May workshop covering best practices using Microsoft Project to manage schedules.
