It was a pleasure to see you at the General Assembly and together with the Board of Directors of PMI Denmark we are looking forward to working together to increase the PMI Denmark network, membership and member events in 2021.
The General Assembly confirmed the following representatives for the Board:
Today's typical Project Manager is facing a variety of different settings and challenges in relation to her project. Projects range from large civil engineering challenges like establishing a cement factory close to the Equator, over developing new vaccines to detain pandemics to large or small scale software developments to name a few. Teams may be distributed across the world, or small co-located agile teams. Probably there is no such thing as a typical PM.
How does the PM determine which ways of working best suit the specific challenges at hand, and where can she seek support for this?
On March 30th 2021, 22 chapter members joined the first ever on-line General Assmebly. Unfortunately this year we could not gather physically but nevertheless it was a great event with good energy shared by the participants.
Following the tradition we reviewed the achievementts over the past 12 months and set the targets for the current year. The GA was kicked off with a fun presentation by comedian Thomas Hartmann, on the dilemmas when working from home, and other perspectives on modern life.The GA continued with presentation of key activities and 2021 plans from each department and concluded with the election of open positions.

PMI Project Management Ready™
The Danish PMI chapter is launching a new initiative to help students show they are ready to manage projects. Later this year, we expect to run the first training based upon PMIs newest certification (Project Management Ready) where we introduce high school and post-secondary students to the concepts and skillsets of project management. The PMI Project Management Ready certification presents the tools needed to apply this knowledge to a wide range of career paths, and to the student’s day to day activities.

One year after the majority of everyday events – work, study, fun and for many meeting friends and family moved to online, attracting people to online conferences or webinars become more challenging. However, the Disciplined Agile webinar organized by PMI Denmark Chapter has gathered more than 40 participants in the evening time. Online format gave the opportunity to involve brilliant speakers from different countries, and this virtual team delivered a very interesting and useful content.
