As the world becomes more inter-connected, Global health issues dominate the health agenda driving scientific research and innovations to design interventions. There is growing partnership and collaboration across agencies, institutions and countries with the aim to prevent and control diseases and improve health and well being not at national level and beyond geographic boards. Despite the growing evidence for which treatment, diagnostic and preventive measures are needed, there remains disparity in access and utilization of these interventions within countries and across the continents in the world. This session will highlight global health issues, perspectives, challenges and opportunities with a focus on Africa.

Kanne-Aaron-3Getting things done, especially the right things, is hard. No one ever taught us in school how to manage our time and our tasks, and many of us have had to learn the hard way. Luckily, there are methods and tools out there that can instantly enhance your personal productivity, and I'd like to share how I've applied the principles of the Getting Things Done (GTD) philosophy to my team using a tool called ToDoist.

You will leave with:

  • A practical understanding of the Getting Things Done (GTD) philosophy and how to get started applying it
  • An opportunity to apply the concepts real time to get more productive quickly
  • An understanding of how I’ve applied the concepts using a software tool called ToDoist

Both traditional (Waterfall) methodology and Agile methodology have pros and cons and can be effective ways to structure a project. For teams that are not practicing Agile, there are still Agile practices that can benefit them. Daily standups, retrospectives, and many other key Agile practices and ceremonies can benefit even a Waterfall team. For many, the most arduous part of transitioning to Agile in a waterfall environment happens at the beginning—in the uncertainty of how to put the initiative into motion. 

In this seminar, strategies and best practices to begin incorporating Agile practices are revealed. Real-world experiences working with existing project teams to begin incorporating Agile practices and ceremonies are shared. By initiating practices, teams start to understand Agile principles and mindset and become better prepared to take the next steps on their Agile journey. Specific Agile practices, and how to adapt each one to a traditional environment, are covered.

2019 Project Management Day of Service for PM

05-04-2019 8:00 am -5:00 pm
$10.00

The Project Management Day of Service (PMDoS) started as a one-day skilled based event hosted by the Atlanta Chapter in 2018. The new resolution intends to provide nonprofits with pro bono (free, professional) project management services to help them address their most difficult challenges. We do this by bringing together local project managers (PMs) with nonprofits who are working hard to serve their communities. The PMs help the nonprofits to scope and plan projects that allow the nonprofits to do more to serve their communities.

The potential impact is enormous as newly minted project manager, CAPM, undergraduate, and graduate pm students can shadow certified PM during the day of service. We aim to advance the current understanding of PMBOK by exposing students to challenges and obstacles they might encounter as a project manager.
