WMPMI - VIRTUAL LUNCH MEETING - June 12, 2020
WMPMI's monthly lunch meeting is a PDU event featuring a speaker that presents on a topic from the PMI Talent Triangle.
Project Manage Your Professional Career and Prepare Yourself for Your Future Challenges
Our world has always been changing, but most of these changes were taking place progressively, sometimes over several generations. Not anymore. Changes are occurring within one generation and even several times. We need to change how we evolve within these challenges, how we envision our own personal future. How will our future as PM professionals look like? What will be the skills and competences to develop? How do I future-proof myself as a PM Professional?
