“You have to manage for results, do the right things right and make serving the customer the center of everything” – Peter Drucker.
Summer is nearly upon us, and I hope your projects are running well, delivering great results, and growing your teams for success now and in the future.
We have a great month of activities for you to wrap up our official program year, and will continue study groups and course opportunities through the summer months. Lee Lambert is hosting a Stakeholder Management workshop this month, and as a participant in a number of Lee’s sessions, I can say they are well worth your time. We are also continuing our support for Agile related topics, including this month’s chapter meeting, and pending courses and study groups.
We are growing our engagement with local organizations through the Pittsburgh PMI Outreach team. We seek to engage and add value to our members’ companies, and we ask that you consider representing your organization if you don’t already have an Outreach representative. This provides excellent volunteer and leadership opportunities for you, and helps provide insight and access to the many valuable offerings from our chapter and from PMI for you and your company.
Throughout the Summer your board and other volunteers will be working hard to review and improve the value we facilitate for you, our members. Please contact any member of the board with feedback and suggestions. We will be holding our semi-annual strategy review and planning session in July, and we welcome your input.
Thanks to Jason, Heidi, and the many volunteers who put on a great tailgate for us in May, capped off by a super win of the Pirates over the Cardinals, and followed by a spectacular fireworks show.
