PMI Madrid Chapter Annual Congress celebrated at

Confortel Hotel in Madrid

On November 27th was celebrated the PMI Madrid Chapter Congress at Confortel Hotel in Madrid. More than two hundred people joined that Event. This Congress counted on a very good set of speakers that shared with the attendees their practical experiences, theory and soft skills. One of the keynote speakers was Mr. Antonio Nieto-Rodriguez, PMP, member of the PMI Board of Directors, and PMO Manager for “Paris Bas”, Bank which Headquarters are located in Brussels, who shared his experience managing a Project Office during the last four years.

I had the opportunity of chatting with Antonio, who was really well impressed because of the huge number of attendees to the Congress, and he mentioned the international relevance that the Project manager profession is acquiring, even he talked about the appearance of project management skills as a requirement for Job Positions at Top Management level. Mr. Rodriguez-Nieto said that this fact is making a difference regarding the past of Project management. Management are more and more aware of the need of managing projects well in organizations, and of the importance of counting on certified and experienced project professionals to get it done right and at the right time.

Other always alive subject, but currently remarked, were Change Management projects, about which Amanda Palazón was talking. Amanda remarked about the constant changes we are living in XXI organizations and our attitudes and reactions in front of those changes.
