Wishing You All a Wonderful Summer Time
PMI Finland Chapter Board
There will be two BRTs on Friday 16th June, one in Helsinki, one in Vaasa.
We generally organise events on different days, enabling as many members as possible to join. This time we had to organise both Helsinki and Vaasa BRTs on 16th as we wish to have one more event in both places before summer and timing forced us to use same date.
So, as there are now two choices, expecting lot’s of participants to join these BRTs 🙂
Pre-registration is open.. with “old price” 130 eur only for anyone: click here
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?

In PMI leaders meeting we discussed with our colleagues from Northern Europe chapters and planned new co-operation that would benefit our members cross our countries. Our target is to provide more volunteering opportunities, yet more events and great opportunities for networking for our members.
Here examples of ongoing activities:
PMI Finland chapter has organised again this autumn study groups to support those who are self studying to PMP exam. This autumn PMI Poland chapter has been hosting more than half our PMP study group sessions and this is still going on. Additionally, our study group was promoted in PMI Poland and we got some participants from there and also from Lithuania.
With PMI Sweden, we have helped them to get in touch with agile specialists from Finland and we’ve exchanged training material on strategy workshop. Additionally, during 2017 we are planning BRT sessions in Vaasa where PMI Sweden members, (Umeå area) will be invited.
Furthermore, we’re planning to share more online events between Northern Europe chapters (Webinars, Study groups, BRTs, etc.) and offering conference tickets to all collaborating countries with local member prices. In the future, we’re planning to expand cooperation to PMI chapters from Norway and Lithuania.
We’ll keep you posted about progress of the increased co-operation and we’re always happy to hear from you with ideas and suggestions 🙂
