PMI Finland Conference

PMI Chapter Finland Annual Conference 10 MAY 2017

You are wellcome to hear what Jaakko Eskola (CEO of Wärtsilä), Carl Haglund (CEO of Kaidi), Tuomo Haukkovaara (Vice president of IBM Nordic) and Jane Morgan (IIL Senior Consultant & Coach) and other speakers have to say about “The Changes” in the business environment, in our project world and about Change in ourselves. We will look at the change through the lenses of project management from different perspectives:

  • What does change mean for you as a project manager and what does it mean to your company?
  • Are you ready for a change and can you recognize it?
  • How does the digitalization influence your business, the working culture and you as a project manager?
  • How to start loving change?

See and read more about the Conference, Program and Speakers on Conference web pages.

PMI Finland Conference 2017: Status

Conference project manager was appointed in Chapter Board meeting 12.9.2016. We are happy to announce Heikki Hartikainen taking the lead in conference arrangements. You can see a short bio in: PMI Finland Board

Conference theme will be around ‘Change’. Change… around us, in the working and business environment. Change… the changes our projects seek to perform. Change… in project management methods we use. Change… in the people; how to motivate, how to lead, how to manage myself.

More about the theme as soon as the team has finalized it and the board approved.

Now, it is time to apply for volunteer positions in the Conference team. Volunteering – in addition to making the Conference really coming alive – gives you opportunity to join a team and network with peers, earn PDUs (something you need if you are certified PMP or have any other PMI certification), perhaps learn something new, .. and enjoy seeing real results from your activities.
