Hi! I’m Connie Emerson and welcome to my first blog, in anticipation of the Project World and & World Congress for Business Analysts. I am counting down the hours until I get on the plane (up here in chilly NH) and arrive in Orlando – to spend several days with like-minded project management and business analysis folks!
Why am I doing this blog? Well, my friends call me, with all love and affection, a Project Management Geek. I love all things project management – and, I know that an “old project manager” CAN learn new tricks. I have had the opportunity to attend several PW & WBCA events in the past. I take away much from each session – and from the informal conversations I am able to have with other attendees in the hallway and during networking breaks. But, it seems that the conference comes to an end too soon - and, I only wish that there were more hours in the day to find out how others implement the art of project management to best serve their organization – and, how we can apply the best practices share in the conference sessions.
Over my blogs, I will be sharing with you my key takeaways and insights from the event – and how I hope to put them to use. I hope that I do meet up with you in the networking sessions so that we can chat informally about project management, business analysis and the tips and tricks we pick up from the session presenters. And, if we don’t –well, I am excited about this blog because it will give me more of a chance to share my insights and learn from yours! Join me on this community –share your session highlights and what new or revised tips you can implement to make your PM/BA life just a little richer – and less crazy.
