Recap: PMI Portland Chapter Annual Conference – 2017

Project Management’s Biggest Event of the Year

2017 Theme: Collaborate and Innovate

The Project Management Institute (PMI) Portland Chapter is the innovative leader in the region for advancing project management, making individuals and organizations more successful. We are a responsive and collaborative center of excellence promoting ethics, quality, knowledge, skills, integrity and leadership.

The PMI® Portland Chapter Annual Conference took place on September 14 and 15 2017 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon. It was a very successful event with more than 450 participants from more than 16 major industries representing 243 companies

Participation in the PMI Portland Annual Conference is a valuable experience. Attendees come to this conference to grow their knowledge, learn from other practitioners, and hear about products and services which support the project management profession and their career goals.

This year, three exceptional keynotes, Dr. Shimi Kang, Pamela Cournoyer, and Skip Weisman, in concert with 25 breakout sessions speakers and 45 volunteers collaborated to make this event the best in the Chapter history. Innovative keynotes challenged the status quo. Industry experts delivered actionable solutions. And peer-driven content offered real-world insight into today’s evolving project and business challenges. Additionally, attendees experienced Robotic telepresence technology, automatic PDU reporting, and drone selfies (dronies).

All breakout sessions, training labs, and Open Space sessions were focusing on topics that supported:

  • Leadership
  • Strategy
  • Technical
  • Agile
  • Business Analysis
  • Tools & Techniques

Stay tuned for soon to be announced the dates for The PMI Portland Chapter 2018 Annual Conference, again at the Oregon Convention Center. It is very much anticipated by the community and PMI-Portland Chapter continues the preparation activities with enthusiasm and dedication.
