Last month we talked about PMI Buenos Aires Chapter Communities of Interest, created in order to analyze and research issues related to project management, share ideas, methodologies and experiences, and above all, enable participants to develop professionally.

Now the news is that the Chapter has a new community of interest called “Leadership”, led by Engineer Adriana Cibelli, volunteer of the chapter, with great professional experience and specialized in leadership and conflict resolution.

The aim of this community is to provide a context for creating and maintaining links between professionals to share experiences and generate specific knowledge and provide an area where it can be found related to the problem of innovative leadership in the local environment solutions. The Community aims to support continuous improvement in project leadership practices as a contribution to the profession. As the rest of the Chapter communities, the Leadership Community of Interest meets monthly with the participation of members of the chapter and those interested in the profession, having conducted a first meeting on September 19 at 6:30 PM.

Other activities developed by the PMI Chapter Buenos Aires we can highlight is the spreading of the profession in a new region of Argentina with the goal of bringing good practices throughout this vast country. In this case, this is the Patagonian Region, the southernmost area of the Americas.

On the context of a Project Management course at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Comahuein the city of Neuquen, PMI Buenos Aires Chapter volunteers made a presentation to communicate to the audience what is PMI, its objectives and activities, what PMI Chapters are in Argentina as well as Regional Communities.

The event, in which the lectures were by Mario Soruli, Industrial Engineer, and Daniel Clerici, Industrial Engineer, had an audience of over 120 people, including people from industry, teachers and advanced students of Engineering.
