2012 PMI Westchester - Professional Development Day: Delivering Results Across Uncertain Seas
On March 31st, over 100 project managers from across the Tri-State area will learn effective strategies for successful delivering projects in the face of ever increasing risk, at PMI Westchester’s 3d annual Professional Development Day in Elmsford, NY. The full day conference will feature nine industry experts who will each explore aspects of the central theme “Delivering Results Across Uncertain Seas”.
As President of Westchester PMI, Duff Bailey, relates “A project plan is really a promise to deliver specific results by a certain date for a specific cost. Today, project managers must make those promises in a world that has been rocked with uncertainty in all directions. They need to learn how to plan for unforeseeable events – such as economic calamity, catastrophic weather, political upheaval, new regulations or disruptive technologies”. Speakers will address how to recognize these risks, and account for them in the project plan and most importantly, how to organize a project team to adapt and adjust to changes that could otherwise delay or even destroy a major project.
The conference will be held form 9 AM to 5 PM at Antun’s of Westchester, 35 Valley Avenue, Elmsford, NY. Full information is available at www.pmiwestchester.org. The sponsor of the conference is the Westchester Chapter of the Project Management Institute, the world’s leading not-for-profit membership association for the project management profession. While the Westchester Chapter focuses its activities in the area just North of New York City, PMI has more than 250 chapters in more than 70 countries worldwide, and 600,000 members and credential holders in more than 185 countries.
