Do we plan or just do it? Our response to this question sets us on a course toward success or failure; likely also risks conflict with management and stakeholders. In an ideal world it is always best to exhaustively plan any endeavor before we do it. Rarely is that possible, so the PMBOK® Guide helpfully offers that most plans can be "formal or informal, broadly framed or highly detailed, based on the needs of the project." So, what do we do, plan or act? Matthew will outline several dimensions and perspectives useful in scaling project planning, starting with templates and checklists, engaging the audience to share why they may or may not work for their respective projects, especially vis-à-vis risks, compliance, and governance.

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.
