CALLING FOR SPEAKERS FOR PMI ZIMBABWE ANNUAL PROJECT MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE 2020
The current global environment is described as VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous). This environment, characterized by rapid changes, dynamism, changing market trends, digital transformations as well as intense competition, is causing a lot of disruption across all sector of the economy and society. As such organisations, public and private, profit and non-profit, are faced with new challenges from regulatory, social, competitive, technological, stakeholder, and customer expectation.
Most organizations are holding on to or developing some form of strategy to help them survive these rough waters. Regardless of industry or market sector, organizations are using projects to drive and deliver their strategy. The successful implementation of strategy can therefore be said to depend on successful completion of projects.
The Project Management profession is being recognized as an essential competency for organizational and individual success in these uncertain times. The Zimbabwe Chapter of the Project Management Institute, is organizing a 2020 Annual Conference with the theme “Achieving Success Through Project Management”. The conference aims to answer questions like “How can organizations successfully use project management to deliver success?”, “How can project practitioners acquire and/or improve the competencies required to professionally manage projects successfully?”, “What factors lead to project management success?”.
The 2020 event will be our first online conference. We have now opened our ‘Call to Speakers’, and we invite Business leaders, Project/Program/Portfolio Managers, Industry leaders, Agile Practitioners and Technology Leaders to create videos or presentations that will inspire delegates during the event.
Deadline: 21 August 2020
