Dear Project Management Community,

Hi and welcome to the 99th edition of Excellentia. The Indonesia Chapter has just completed its Board of Directors Election,in the “From Board” rubric, we introduce to you our new Chapter leadership for 2020-2023. The PMI HQ BOD Election, however, is still ongoing and if you have not yet voted, you can check out the candidates’ profiles in this edition.

Our main article is about change, and the project manager’s perspective on responding to these changes. With the project economy and the changes it brings in skills, talent acquisitions and different ways of working, project managers will need to step up their game and become a true leader. Close to the time of publishing, the chapter was saddened with the loss of our project management mentor, Pak Hari Gumuruh. We have dedicated an obituary remembering his involvement from the day of the conception of PMI Indonesia Chapter.

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. As we strongly advance to the second half of the year, I wish you successful days ahead in navigating through the changes and challenges in your place of work. Stay safe!
