Meeting of the Project Minds: PMI Global Congress 2007
Hi everyone, I’m Michael Deutch, the director of solution marketing at Mindjet. It’s my first time posting on our blog but I plan to update everyone periodically on Mindjet solutions, events and partner offerings.
I just returned from PMI Global World Congress in Atlanta. It was a great event and my first time exhibiting for Mindjet.
Our presentations on Sunday with PM Practice, Inc, and at the Microsoft booth demonstrated the growing interest in using MindManager to improve how you capture, share and use your volumes of project information. If you missed us at the event, you can see some of what you missed from our webinar with PM Practice, MindManager 7 for Successful PMBOK-based Microsoft Project Schedules.
Overall, the best part of our PMI presentation was when the audience starting sharing their experiences and the benefits of using MindManager to develop work breakdown structures, capture project requirements, develop effective charters, align teams, mitigate risk and more…
I must have met hundreds of MindManager fans as well as introduced hundreds of others to our company and product. For instance, I had great conversations with Greg C. from Hitachi Consulting who has been using MindManager since it was first released. Or, Elmar Roberg from South Africa, another MindManager user who is a project management author and practitioner. And Yamal Chamoun from Mexico. Yamal is the President of Escala, creator of the “Escala Method”, and author of “Professional Project Management, The Guide”. If you habla espanol, visit ESCALA to learn more about their project successes!
I also ran into Dave Davies, a Project Manager from AT&T, who just published a whitepaper at PMI that explores why certain team members embrace the implementation of Integrated Portfolio Management Systems, while others resist their implementation. For more information about the whitepaper and future updates to the analysis, contact Dave at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mindjet will be back on the road talking to our customers and demonstrating MindManager at the Microsoft Office Project Conference 2007 in Seattle on Oct. 28-31. Stop by and say hello!
Until next time, happy mapping!
