On Monday, 27th of November, I had the chance to participate in a workshop, organized by the Porta 22 - www.porta22.com - (BarcelonaActiva) around the role of the "Project Manager".
They invited some members of the Chapter of PMI Barcelona (www.pmi-bcn.org), who presented to the assistants (more than 70) the different aspects of the Project Management 'profession'.
First of all, Marc Serer, explained them what is the Project Management International Organization, www.pmi.org, and how to become member of it.
After that, Enrique Bolon, talked about the role and work of the Project Manager at the Construction Sector.
I presented the same aspects but ivolved in the IT (Information Tecnologies) Projects, and finally, Albert Cubeles talked about the professional carreer of a Project Manager, the international certification of the PMI, the PMP credential (Project Management Professional), the way to obtain it and the options to learn the PMBOK.
In my case, I talked about different methodologies to use on the IT Projects, like Metrica and Microsoft Solutions Framework, the main obstacles Project Managers found when they manage this type of projects, and I presented, also, the most usual 'stakeholders' and 'professional roles' involved in the ICT Projects (Information and Communication Technologies).
