About the Program
Strategic project management involves both leading and managing; it involves skills that can be developed and it is in high demand throughout the world as organizations are learning to do more with less resources.
We will examine the organizational factors impacting projects, how leading and managing skill sets both come into play, and practical application of the principles for success. As you learn how to think and act strategically, you will manage projects that differentiate you and prove your value to your organization and your customers.

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.
