PMI Madrid Chapter Monthly Meeting

On September 25th, from 6:00 to 8:30 pm, was celebrated (at Microsoft Madrid Office) the PMI Madrid Chapter membership monthly meeting. Around hundred members attended that meeting and they had the opportunity to wear a PMI T-shirt celebrating the fiftieth PMI anniversary. See the attached picture of the whole membership group.

The attendees had the opportunity to exchange some impressions about their experiences over the life of PMI Madrid Chapter.

As a PMI Madrid Chapter Founder on 2003, and as a PMI member for twenty-seven years ago, Alfonso Bucero shared his experiences. Furthermore, he delivered a presentation about “The Millennial Project Manager”. This subject was very interesting for all the attendees that asked him several questions about that polemic subject. All twenty-one century organizations need to be prepared and change their way of project managers education and training. The forecast is that by 2025 about 75 percent of project managers will be “millennials”. During this monthly meeting several project managers from that generation received “The Complete project Manager” as a book gift, where one of its chapters is dedicated to millennial Project Manager skills.
