The St. Francis College Center of Excellence in Project Management presents the 2nd Annual Practical Project Management Research Forum! The theme of the Forum is “The Business Side of Project Leadership” and it is hosted by the Stevens Institute of Technology. We are going beyond the basics of scope, schedule and budget management to discuss theories, concepts and methodologies that will maximize business value.
The Forum will feature presentations by both project management researchers and project management practitioners. Researchers will present highly-relevant research findings in PM. Project management practitioners will discuss current trends in project management.
Specific topics include Project Leadership for Healthcare IT Projects, Bridging the Gap Between Business and the PMO, and the soon-to-be-released Software Extension to the PMBOK.
Featured speakers include:
- Beverly Magda, Ph.D., Associate Dean, Technology Management, Georgetown University
- Don Zack, Project Management Office Director, Broadridge Financial
- Richard Turner, Distinguished Service Professor, Stevens Institute of Technology
- Peter Dominick, Industry Assistant Professor, Stevens Institute of Technology
- Thomas Lechler, Associate Professor, Stevens Institute of Technology
There will also be a panel discussion with Judy Balaban, President of the PMI New Jersey Chapter and Henry Abel, President-Elect of the NYC Chapter, moderated by Dominic Lepore, Program Director of Project Management for Stevens.
The Forum is $50 for general admission, $25 for Stevens alumni and PMI members; it includes coffee, lunch and snacks. The Forum is free for current Stevens Howe School and SSE graduate students.
PMI members earn 5 PDUs.
