PMI Madrid Spain Chapter 2020 Summary  

This year is ending. Most of us wish this year 2020 to finish because it has not been a good year for anyone. Unfortunately, bad moments have been happening almost all the time. However, our brain has the rare ability to diminish the effects of adverse events and sometimes erase those bad moments over time, to help us be less affected by them. In any case, we must focus on the positive and on the lessons learned during 2020.

We had the opportunity to read the message from the PMI Madrid Chapter’s President, Susana Moreno, and I want to share it with you in this monthly report:

It has not been an easy year, absolutely not. Neither for our PMI Madrid Chapter, but I believe (Susana says) that the resulting balance has been positive. We must not be focused only on actual process results. Still, also on the positive intangible impact, they could generate because it has been a challenging year, with plenty of learning and walking together despite physical distance. This year we have added value to others in a responsible way. We did it through several activities that we could facilitate, despite difficulties and sharing knowledge, helping others be better innovative and change generators. Those actions have placed us as a referent in project management.

We are aware of Project Management to understand how to add value through projects, lead in a more inclusive, in different contexts, transform some ideas into reality, and break the “status quo” when reality drives. This year we have celebrated significant events as the “First Women Congress of Project Management,” the  XVII Annual Congress,  dedicated to “Digital Transformation Project Manager,” and together with all Spanish Chapters the “Open Space Summer Edition #VOSSE2020” and the “12º Day of Social Project Management“.
