PMI Netherlands Summit

I'm pleased to see that the PMI Netherlands Summit now features a page on the "Exclusive Blog Team", which includes yours truly. I'm really looking forward to it. These are thye main topics:

Team learning in projects: why some project teams learn new insights and apply them while others don’t sounds particularly interesting to me. 

Project strategy rooted in dynamic capabilities: a discussion on how project strategy can enable your organization to be adaptable. 

Learning from outside the box: learning from experiences (another of my hot topics) from outside of your own mindset. What will work for you? "Listen and shiver" sounds fun.

Co-creating recipes for successful Project Management: a workshop based on the theory of single, double and triple loop learning.

Learning on the fly: how project managers can access lessons learned on the fly, at the right moment and addressing a specific issue. 

Community Sources Learning adds Value: How can an organization capture and apply knowledge which are of strategic importance for the organization?

Constructing Your Parachute On The Way Down: (I particularly like the sound of this one!) Overcoming Organizational Gravity For Smarties.

Be inspired by Lynn Crawford and Terry Cooke-Davies: your opportunity to align with international thought leaders on project management competences. 

Project Management and the human factor: little attention has been paid until now to the art of undermining  and manipulating projects. But each project has its opponents; the dominant motive is survival.

Program, Governance and its flip side: the relevance of Program and Portfolio Governance in organizations and an updated Agile Governance approach.

Retrospectives: your lessons learned on steroids to help your team/project in continuous improvement.

How agile projects measure up, what this means to you: how organizations can measure their own projects, agile or not, and how to communicate results to decision makers who face investment decisions.

The Afsluitdijk: the world-famous Enclosure dam doesn’t meet present safety standards and needs a makeover. Joost van de Beek (project manager) will share the critical points to success.

Intervision and coaching: a workshop approach to experience learning via interaction and dialogue. Learn by sharing experiences and by exposing your worries and insecurities. Open up and grow.

Hi there, I've come across your blog and wanted to say what an interesting take on Project Management.

As you are interested in PM Summits, would you be interested in the Oracle Primavera 2013 Virtual Summit?

It's a free, global online event, designed for PMPs on the future of PPM, EPPM and Project Management, showcasing the latest Oracle cloud-based EPPM solutions and detailing how Primavera P6 as well as other industry-leading tools can help improve project planning and execution.

It's free to register and attend here:

I would love it if you would approve this comment or spread awareness of a great opportunity for PMPs to earn PDUs and to get exclusive insight into the latest Oracle acquisitions.
