May 2nd, 2018 PMI Project Showcase

Wednesday, May 2nd 5:40pm to 6:30pm 


Topic: Dilbert’s Guide to Project Management
Presenter: Dr. Jeffrey B. Jones (PhD, PMP)



Presentation Summary: 


Dilbert is a popular American comic strip from the imaginative mind of Scott Adams. The Dilbert comicstrip focuses on the title character who is a white collar Engineer in a micromanaged office environment. Project Management and both its facets and just general professional office dynamics have made a Dilbert a fan favorite for nearly 30 years.
We all know what PMI says a project should be and what the PMBOK has to say about project
management. Come laugh and learn as we explore Dilbert’s guide to Project Management.
Please consider joining us early for the monthly event and attend this important discussion. If you aren’t having fun or finding humor in your work, you are robbing yourself of a great opportunity.
