The PMI Madrid Chapter delivers a professional PM Event in Madrid

Last November 22nd the PMI Madrid Chapter celebrated a Project management professional event at Rafael Hotel in the city of Madrid. More than 150 project professionals joined that event and shared best practices and ideas.

That event counted on several Speakers from AENOR (Quality norms and procedures association), from IE (Spanish Business School), and from a politician from the Murcia Community, who talked about the increased awareness of project management in the Spanish Public Administration, where many things are pending to be improved. Once more time it showed up the advance and promotion of the Project management profession in Spain.

Subjects like our current crisis, the need to be adapted to the changes, the need to develop more and more Project management soft skills were a common aspect discussed in all the speakers presentations. The PMI Madrid Chapter has continued growing up counting currently on more than 1300 members. The biggest amount of members from the last two years is coming from the Construction industry. To achieve a professional certification (PMP) has become a development objective to achieve by most of professionals in that industry sector.
