PMI Central Alabama Chapter

March 2023 President's Corner

Celebrating Women's History and Power Skills in the month of March!

My project 1 2March is the time for daylight savings, spring cleaning, St. Patrick's Day, Spring Break, March Madness and growth. As part of this year's strategy, one of our goals is to hold chapter events where our members work. We want to thank Protective Life for hosting last month's chapter meeting and for Anoop Mishra presenting leadership and management in the post-pandemic work environment. He provided some great tips that we can all incorporate into our teams.


This month, we will be hosting the Spring President's Reception with Ken Craig, CIO & VP of Special Projects at McLeod Software, as the speaker. The theme is leadership and the topic is "Change Management: A Secret to Project Success".


Here is a recent PMI article from the PMI Global Chief Strategy & Growth Officer, Dave Garrett, that I read addressing the importance of power skills (a.k.a. soft skills) and emphasis of the importance to project success.
