This is the final newsletter of 2017, and with this we want to wish you all a merry Christmas and a very happy New Year. 2017 was again an eventful year for PMI in Denmark, and the strong growth we saw in 2016 has continued in 2017 with PMI Denmark adding 15% to its group of members. We are very happy for that achievement, but we look forward to 2018 with even more ambitions for the community.
The first events in 2018 will be on the 30th of January where we will hear from Skip Bowman on project leadership, and on the 7th of March 2018 we will have the PMI Denmark General Assembly and board elections. You can already now sign up to both events on the PMI Denmark website here.
In this newsletter you can also read about PMIs recent events such as the event on 1st of November 2017 with Implement Consulting Group regarding cultural awareness and the event on 23rd of November with DTU on how to enhance project portfolio practises. Project portfolio management is actually the topic for this newsletter, so we have also added a list of some of the PMI webinars on portfolio management that you as members can enjoy for free.
This Q4 newsletter contains several articles regarding project management that you can read, but we strongly encourage you not just to read! Be active, get involved with project management! PMI Denmark and PMI Young Professionals are always looking for people who are interested in doing something for the project management community in Denmark. We are currently especially looking for people within the following areas: Marketing, Administration, Sponsorships, and events in Jylland. If you are interested in one of these topics, or just want to help out, then reach out to us on firstname.lastname@example.org!
Enjoy the reading! Best regards, The PMI Denmark Board

Challenging the change management paradigm
A frequently cited figure is that 70% of all projects fail, presumably often due to inadequate change management. With the vast amount of well-established literature on change management, we are eager to investigate why this is the case.
We want to prove or reject some of the classic claims that exist in change management as well as our own beliefs by applying a well-proven, data-driven research methodology. This is why University of Oxford and Implement Consulting Group have joined forces to conduct a comprehensive research project on change management in IT projects.
To accomplish this, we need project managers and owners willing to use approx. 1 hour on participating in an interview and following sending background data on the specific project.
