Project management is not operations, there are many things that are not routine and to be treated as if it were production.  However, that is not entirely true.  Often industry and disciplines have certain core routines and processes that are employed to reach the organization's objectives.  Those core routines and processes also apply to Project Management.  This presentation will demonstrate the use of Total Quality Management tools applied to Project Management and the PMO. These tools enable better predictions and can help us understand the weak areas of our organization and our project.  Knowing this makes our plan more accurate.  Knowing this provides a better understanding of the risks.  Knowing this allows us to improve the project and organizational processes.  Knowing this also enables the organization to constantly improve instead of burning the metaphorical hand on the same hot stove top and wondering why.



This is a working meeting designed for PMI Chapter members south of the city including Ballantyne.

PDU Category: Technical


Community Chapter Meeting 

As a means of helping chapter and local community members who are certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP®) satisfy the continuing education requirements for re-certification, PMI Metrolina Chapter arranges its monthly meeting schedule to allow a 1 hour PDU training session to be incorporated into its normal meeting.

Topics presented during these sessions are designed to not only satisfy the PDU requirement for re-certifying as a PMP, but to also provide wide appeal to people involved in project management regardless of whether or not they are certified PMPs. The 1-hour sessions meet the educational requirements to qualify for 1 PDU credits for maintaining PMP® certification or to meet the requirement for attending 35 hours of formal project management education prior to applying to sit for the PMP® exam.

The sessions are open to all.
