Your May 2022 Newsletter is here! In Agniezska Skalska’s Message from the Board (uniquely delivered this month by video!), we’re motivated to focus on innovation. We’re reminded that our Swiss Chapter has much to offer in its role as an influencer to shape the project management experience of its members and beyond. Watch her video message, engage with our social media and join us for a growing number of events, both in person and online.
We’re pleased this month to welcome Marc Lahmann, Partner and Leader Transformation Assurance, PwC, who describes what you can expect at the June 9, event in Basel “Can agile enable a full scope transformation approach and realise expected benefits more successfully?”
Similarly, we propose another teaser to encourage you to join an upcoming event: “Design Thinking toolbox for project managers.” Other articles this month bring you highlights of past events related to tailoring projects; using data to drive decision-making; and leading a dynamic people centered transformation. As we propose each month, take a moment to discover profiles of new Swiss Chapter members.

Needless to say that the increasing volume of data, across the years, has made the work of PMs more challenging. The development of data science, on the other hand, is bringing the project management community new means, as we saw in Rodolfe Dewarrat’s presentation, to apprehend this challenge...
On Thursday, March 31, 2022 took place our virtual event "Leading a dynamic people-centered transformation" on the "Zoom" platform, presented, with great talent, by our VP Sponsors & Partners, Adi Muslic and our guest Tahirou Assane, MASc, P.Eng., PMP.
Tahirou is the Director Brightline Initiative at PMI and has over 20 years of experience in leadership roles, civil engineering, strategy, transformation and project management.
