PM Point of View® to Feature Highlights from the 2018 Project Management Symposium: Turning Knowledge into Practice

MPS President, Kendall Lott, was wearing his podcast hat recently, when he attended the annual Project Management Symposium, hosted by the University of Maryland’s Project Management Center for Excellence. With him was a team of M Powered Strategies consultants and PMP®s, armed with audio recorders. While Kendall conducted “man on the street” interviews with speakers and attendees at the symposium, his team fanned out to record three key tracks for upcoming PM Point of View® podcasts on Leadership; Agile & IT; and Construction.

“I was struck by the overall size, professionalism and quality of the symposium,” noted Kendall.  “It is amazing to have this in an academic institution, with graduate level training in Project Management.  Since UMD began hosting this symposium five years ago, it has grown markedly.  There was palpable enthusiasm among the participants listening, reacting, and engaging with the  speakers and presenters.  Congratulations to UMD and John Cable, Director of the Project Management Center for Excellence, for putting together this inspiring event.”

We also want to shout out special thanks to our recordists, Ira Casteel, Marci Owens, Maria Perez, and Bowen Zhang. The first episode, on Leadership, will be released in June. So stay tuned!
