Each project team has its own culture composed of many individual personalities and characteristics. These characteristics are at times impacted by the individuals generation. Baby Boomers are the largest generation by volume. Second in volume is Generation Y with birth years from 1980’s – late 1990’s. As more Baby Boomers enter into retirement Gen-Y will soon become the largest generation in the workforce. Project Managers are bound to work with this growing group of individuals.

This presentation will focus on who and what is Gen Y. What practical tools and tips could be used as a PM to ensure you are getting the best out of Gen-Y team members.

About the PM Industry Insights

PM Industry Insights is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.

These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc. 

Both PM Industry Insights and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
