PMI Bangkok Chapter presentation - Alignment

posted 14 Oct 2009, 23:16 by Robert Twiddy   [ updated 17 Apr 2012, 22:34 ]

This presentation focuses on a case study of a Semiconductor company where 600 engineers were trained for six months and team members of 50 large projects were coached for one year in the application of PMBOK principles. A key element to the success of this project was strategically aligning this cross functional organization. This implied:  scoping the program, implementing the right governance, and developing PMBOK training guidelines to suit the customer using a participative approach.

Our esteemed speaker this month will focus on the strategic approach used in this project and highlight challenges, supporting tools, and lessons learned.
