PMI Baltimore Chapter – Annapolis Site Dinner Meeting
This educational event qualifies for 1.00 PDU within the PMI Talent Triangle - Leadership
It's Your Career--Manage It!
Abstract: You Are Here: X Now What?You may have planned on being a project management professional or maybe you are what is referred to as an “accidental Project Manager”. How you got here is irrelevant. Where you go from here is critical and essentially up to you. You have control of the transformation process. You alone can determine if you just have a “job” or is project management a “career” choice? The need for demonstrated performance and the subsequent “value add” cries out to the PM profession. The PM is expected to make the impossible, possible! The PM is expected to convert groups of matrixed individuals working together into focused high performance teams with sustainable productivity improvement.
You must never forget that becoming a credentialed Project Management Professional (PMP) is the beginning, not the end, of your professional journey. You must commit to practicing what the PMP credential preaches. As they say, “Talk is cheap”. Are you among the ranks of those that don’t just talk about it, they “do it”?
Each individual must honestly assess where they are and then work hard formulating and executing a plan to get them where they want to be. Is your personal talent triangle equilateral? Have you achieved balance and competence in your Technical, Leadership and Strategic/Business expertise sufficient to enable you to meet the evolving demands of your profession?
The purpose of a professional development conference is to present opportunities to learn the tools and techniques that will enable you to understand what you can do to sustain a high level of performance and empower your career in project management AND contribute to the success of your organization. Hopefully, you attended conferences for more than the Professional Development Units (PDU) necessary to statistically maintain your credential. Earning PDUs should be secondary to enhancing your value add performance on the job. When you learn you earn!
This presentation will bring it all together. The importance of what the learning opportunities provided, how you must go forward and “prove” you are a PMP every day will be emphasized. Lee R. Lambert, PMI Fellow and one of the Founders of the PMP in the 80s, will drive the points home, while challenging each and every person to go forward understanding the importance of their job and the reason to constantly practice self improvement, while working toward becoming “all that you can be”!
Nobody ever said project management was easy. But, Lee will demonstrate, using real world examples, why effective project managers are in demand throughout the world. He will confirm how the tools and techniques of the trade are powerful—if used correctly. Project management is hard work, no doubt. But hard work becomes enjoyable when do it well. You will leave this presentation with a new perspective of the role you can play! It will be up to you where you go from X.
