Among the hundreds of attendees and presenters at last week’s 2015 Symposium of the Washington, DC chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMIWDC), M Powered Strategies had a strong presence, serving as volunteers, speakers, and attendees.
MPS President, Kendall Lott, and co-presenter Laura Barnard of PMO Strategies, spoke to a packed room about “Making a Difference with Project Management,” based on their experience with the record-setting Project Management Day of Service (PM-DoS), which was spearheaded by Kendall and took place on Martin Luther King Day this year. Now slated as an annual event, PM-DoS is an opportunity for Project Managers (PMs) to provide their special skills to the non-profit market.
Participants at the symposium had an opportunity to share their stories for PM Point of View. This podcast, hosted by Kendall Lott, looks at Project Management from all the angles. The topic of the day was Project Failure, and the range of issues, pitfalls, and lessons learned promises to make for an informative podcast – to be broadcast later this year.
As Keynote Sponsor, M Powered Strategies is producing videos of all of the breakout sessions and the keynote speeches for the PMIWDC archives. MPS’ in-house video specialist, Mary Flannery, will combine audio recordings of each session with the accompanying PowerPoint deck.
“I’m delighted to help the chapter add to its archive of educational material to continue service to its members,” Kendall remarked, as he reflected on his role, past and present, in the organization, as well as the future of PMIWDC. “As past chair, I take great pride in being part of another professionally organized and well-attended PMIWDC event. It’s inspiring to watch this chapter, which is the largest of the entire international Project Management Institute, expand its services to our members and to the community. It’s vibrance and vitality are impressive!”
