PM4Real January 2022: Good Practices of Active Membership
At the first PM4Real in 2022, we would like to present three examples of good practices of active membership. The first example is meetings intended for project managers who already have a certain level of knowledge of English and want to maintain it, who want to share knowledge from our field of expertise through a group discussion and at the same time develop a network of international contacts. The second example is the Projects from the future project. The last example we would like to present is the Light up 360 event.
We invite you to consider and suggest what good practices we could add to the work of our association and implement them this year. The event is free of charge and will take place online.
In the first part, Marjana Skubic, M.Sc., PMP, will present free advanced English courses for project managers from PMI Lima, Peru Chapter, Academy of English for project managers and other collaborative chapters. The courses were led by coaches from countries around the world and they rounded off their activities in 2021 with the Intercultural Meet & Greet for project managers event. This year, PMI Turkey is also preparing similar courses within the framework of these courses. Members of PMI Slovenia, Ljubljana can attend these courses as students, coaches or project managers of a Session of courses or events. There are also opportunities for PMI Slovenia, Ljubljana to work together with these chapters, or even establish an Academy of English for Project Managers PMI Slovenia, Ljubljana. We will also be joined by a guest Mr. Martin Samuel Figueroa Perez, new head of the Academy of English, PMI Lima, Peru.
In the second part, Alenka Slabe, PMP, will present the Projects from the future project, which aims to spread knowledge and culture of project management among children. Projects from the future is a great learning tool for introducing project management in primary schools. It was recognized as a good practice by the global PMI® Association and it was published as a material in 15 languages at the PMIEF - Educational Foundation, which enables young people to realize their potential and enrich their lives through project management. We also translated it into Slovene and presented its use to teachers in many Slovene primary schools.
In the third part, Uroš Orehek will present the Light up 360 event. It is an event where project managers from the PMI community compete for the best 360-second presentation. They present and share their valuable knowledge and experience from practice, therefore the event is very interesting also for the audience. Light up 360 brings together five PMI chapters from northern Italy, Croatia, Austria, Slovenia and Hungary. In the end, participants have the opportunity to vote for their favorite presentation. The best three presentations receive prizes.
