Professional development with a twist: Building a Community of Practice

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

IST’s Portfolio Management Group (PMG) is excited to announce the launch of their new professional development series, Project and Portfolio Management Community of Practice (PPM CoP). These unique sessions offer participants an opportunity to learn more about key aspects of project and portfolio management while tying in often overlooked and unexpected facets of this work, such as planning and prioritization, key performance measurement, emotional intelligence, policies and trends, and organizational change management.

Each presentation or workshop is followed by a period of networking, allowing participants the chance to connect, share experiences, and build the community that will help evolve project management across campus.

Upcoming Community of Practice sessions

Sessions will be held from 9:00-10:30 a.m. on the fourth Wednesday of each month. No registration or previous portfolio or project management training is required.
