Excellentia 114 Header

Dear Project Management Community,

After a long wait, and months of preparation the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP) Study Group was kicked off on October 9th, 2021. The Chapter has been receiving many requests since the beginning of 2020, to run a study group for PMI-ACP, following the footsteps of our more mature PMP Study Group.

From PMI HQ, the article discusses Make the Most Out of Virtual Events. We had two PRANKS session in September 2021 and in case you missed them, we feature reports of the events.

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. I hope you enjoy reading this edition.

There are several reasons why a risk might be accepted (and acceptance is a management approach for opportunities and threats). Focusing on threats (as that’s the more common application of risk management), it may be that there is no effective active management approach that is feasible. If there are no options to mitigate or transfer the risk, and elimination is not warranted (sometimes that means canceling the project, or at least the approach), then taking a “watching brief” and accepting it is the best choice.

Unable to board a plane for business travel or even to enter offices, workspaces and project sites, we adapted to the new reality and pivoted to virtual interaction.
