One of the most common complaints from project managers is that they lack the time to get everything done--but what they are really saying is that they are not making the most of the time they have to focus on the right things. How do project managers know which things are the "right things"? How can we set ourselves up for success tomorrow by improving our productivity, creativity, and focus today? This presentation will summarize the best tips from a variety of productivity gurus and apply them to the field of project management. Project managers will gain an understanding of how they can work with their teams today to get where they want to be tomorrow.

Register for the dinner meeting here.

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.
