Abstract
This 5-page brief of a project management interest group's inaugural panel discussion summarizes their strategy for selecting presentations and speakers, as well as the best practices and lessons learned from their first group of panelists.


What this is

In a five-page brief, Kathleen Stehly, PMP, not only summarizes the best practices and lessons learned from their first group of panelists, but also how they went about selecting the PMIG presentations and speakers their managers wanted to hear. Provided courtesy of the PMI Retail SIG.


Why it's useful

When this company chartered a PM Interest Group "designed to increase awareness of, use of, and competency in Project Management," more than 70 people attended the first meeting to hear from a panel of expert project and program managers. Their panel-based selection procedure, along with the panel-based discussion summarized here, provides a good model for organizations or companies implementing or improving their own project management support/interest groups.


How to use it

Review the panel discussion Q&A summary for the panelists' thoughts on these and several other common issues:

  • most common PM-related challenges and workarounds;
  • the top three schedule risks;
  • to plan or not to plan;
  • differences between and different processes for "large" vs. "small" projects, and projects vs. programs;
  • handling push-back from team members about the direction set by senior management.
