Presentation abstract

The majority of people join PMI to learn more about project management and to learn and practice new project management. There is a need to simplify the project process and make easy to train and coach other people.  This can be done by focusing on benefits realization and let the data drive the project.

The following will be introduced during the presentation and made freely available to all PMI members

  1. A light project framework that is:
  • based on the PMBOK and easy to use and explain to others
  • focus on products, benefits and data driven PM

  1. A simple free online PM tool which
  • supports the project manager
  • makes the project very visual (project data)

  1. Sample projects from different domains
  • These are detailed project documents
  • They make it easier for PMs take on other projects outside their domain

People can decide to use this light PM framework themselves and/or use it to train other people in project management and give them the confidence to start to run their own projects.  Workshop material will also be provided to the PMI members.
