Excellentia 88

EXCELLENTIA e-Newsletter



Dear Project Management Community,

Halfway through the year! Where did time go? I hope the year has been a productive and meaningful so far for our readers. Welcome to another edition of Excellentia. In the 88th edition we cover a Focus Group Discussion between PMI and Bina Nusantara University to foster collaboration between the two institutions.
We cover a very special 99th OMM which carried the topic “Adding Agile Flavor to the PMO”. The session was very well received. We also ran our regular CAPM/ PMP exam simulations prior to the OMM.

Our main article talks about the nature of the Project Manager’s job, the demands it brings and more importantly how to cope with them. We also feature an article on the Innovation Imperative, which discusses the role innovation plays in the mindset of a project manager, who is a strategic collaborator of the organization’s business.

On behalf of the board of editors I would like to thank the contributors of this edition and everyone who has supported in the preparation of this newsletter.

The competitive environment is shifting regularly; there are disruptive influences around every corner and digitization efforts are transforming capabilities. Artificial intelligence, blockchain, citizen developer programming and so many other emerging technologies are gaining traction and rapidly changing the playing field on a nearly daily basis.

The Innovation Imperative

Coping Strategies for
the Always-On PM

Let’s face it. Project management is not a 9-to-5 job. It doesn’t fit into a nice, normal, predictable work week. Of course, that’s why many of us are attracted to the role in the first place. We like the variety. We find the challenge appealing. The idea that every day is different is motivating, not disturbing.

Some of us thrive on the chaos that ensues from wrestling with uncertainty and wrangling change.

Transformation is happening across projects, PMOs and even industries with this wave of digitalization. June’s Open Membership Meeting (OMM) focuses on introducing agility to the Portfolio/ Program/ Project Management Offices (PMOs) in meeting the demands.
