About the Program

When teams get stuck on complex problems, it can torpedo a project’s success. Using games at work, however, can get teams thinking about problems in new ways, bring hidden ideas to the forefront, and get them quickly moving in the right direction. This session will incorporate a number of fun, interactive games to show the power of how games can enliven and empower a team to think in different ways, solve their own problems in hours not days, and dramatically increase cohesiveness and trust between 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.
