WMPMI's monthly breakfast meeting is a one-PDU event featuring a speaker that presents on a topic from the PMI Talent Triangle for 45 minutes and allows 15 minutes for questions. Also included is an excellent breakfast buffet and the company of your project management peers. 

Location: University Club - 10th Floor of the Fifth / Third Building - 111 Lyon St NW # 1025, Grand Rapids

Speaker:  Des Nelson

Topic:  Viewing Projects Through a New Pair of Glasses

Description:  Des will present an efficient way of facilitating and communicating a project portfolio to stakeholders.  Through a mobile and web interface, Des will introduce the group to a more inviting way to display project status at a glance.  She will tell her story of why it was created, the details it provides, and the array of problems it solves.  This is not your run of the mill excel spreadsheet or gantt chart!  The method Des uses will work no matter what project and portfolio management tool you use. 

PDU:  Technical 1.0
