COVID-19 Update

In response to COVID-19 public health directives, the Willamette Valley Chapter has moved its monthly professional development programs to a virtual platform. We've also suspended our in-person events until the public health situation allows.  In the meantime, please check out our Events page for local and global online events to continue your project management professional development.

PMI Global is also making adjustments to its plans for events, and changes to certification programs and exam content. PMI has created a webpage to post announcements related to COVID-19 impacts.

Lunch Webinar: Taming a HiPPO with Data-Driven Culture

HiPPO, the acronym for "highest paid person's opinion," is the manager who pops into your project at the last moment and offers an opinion on what to do to make the project, or product, a success. This may or may not be a great idea. In this discussion, we will examine how you can depersonalize decision-making and make the decision about facts, not what the HiPPO thinks. We will investigate healthy conflict, and respectful interjection with meaningful data.

News for Project Managers 400

We've Got A New Look!

Because it is so visual, you might think that our new logo, colors, typography and symbols are the “new brand.” But these images are only a visual representation of our new brand position, which is the core of PMI as we begin our next 50 years.

When the Project Management Institute was founded 50 years ago, project management wasn’t a thing yet—it was a small group of people talking about new tools, and processes that were changing the way work was being done. Our founders had the foresight to create an organization that would help people deliver results as their work changed. We’re carrying on that vision with our new brand.

We’re planting a flag in the future as ways of working continue to change. PM’s Value Delivery Landscape encompasses all of what we do today, all of the new offerings and knowledge we now have through our friends at Disciplined Agile and Flex, and is broad enough to keep us relevant through whatever is next – whether that’s citizen developer, low code/no code, quantum computing, or something completely new that will emerge as we continue to integrate technology into our ways of working.

Whatever that looks like, PMI powers The Project Economy, strengthening society by enabling organizations and empowering people to make ideas a reality.

The new logos, symbols and graphics are the visual representation of this new position, and PMI’s intent to be the leading voice in the future.
