PMI Dallas 2011

The congress has once again sadly come to a close. Three thousand people attended and there was a real positive buzz and energy.

Our session on Monday, Three Easy Steps to Recovering Your project, was extremely well attended, with standing room only, and we had a lot of positive feedback. The key with the RPD technique is that it is so powerful but at the same time so easy to apply, and participants felt it was something that they could deploy immediately.

There were many other really good sessions. The impact of technology was very prevalent. In one session the use of software was demonstrated on how to use it to build a mind map and from there put together a business proposal. While software and social media certainly help with communication, it should not be forgotten that if the PM still works on a one to one basis with the team members you will still have the same issues of silo working and its consequences to the project…

Our paper will be put up on the site in the knowledgebase shortly, which you can access for free…...along with video clips of the presentation and feedback…plus more to come on the Congress so watch this space.
