PMI Argentinian Chapters are very active this year and in the first months already conducted several seminars in different geographies of the country.

Among the lectures by the PMI Buenos Aires Chapter we would like to highlight the one on March 26th. in which Eng. Gustavo Baldoni addressed the issue of conflict resolution and how to approach them from the context of the systems theory.

On April 14th, another open meeting of PMI Buenos Aires Chapter was held by Eng. Gustavo Flouret entitled “Strategic Planning and Project Management” were was described the strategic process, based on theoretical concepts and putting them into practice during his conference.

In May, took place the conference entitled “The role of the PMO in the Era of Process Management” by Mr. Gregorio Correa, who presented the evolution of people, processes, business and technologies in organizations and the role of the upper Management in the level of participation of the PMO. After a discussion, it was concluded that it is necessary that the executive level is convinced of the added value of complementing functions among Project Offices and Process Offices.

But not only in the capital of Argentina they have conducted these conferences.

The city of Cordoba was a meeting place for leaders of projects and interested in project management in the day on June 24th, organized by the Cordoba Community of PMI and PMI Chapter Buenos Aires, which had important exhibitors, as they were Eng.
