MindManager™ & Microsoft Office Project™ & Prince2 ™
Anyone who has ever worked in project management (whether beginner or expert) knows that Prince2™ is a methodology and, to the beginner, it seems “difficult” and “daunting”. I was therefore extremely pleased to discover this free event being hosted by Visual Technology Solutions and am really looking forward to it. Anything which can assist people running projects to be able to “see a clearer way to project success” must be worth taking a good look at and it is yet another reason why I am enjoying the journey of learning MindManager 7.0 Pro™ from Mindjet. To be able to see the VISION whilst controlling the DETAIL is a common theme with me … people need to be able to “see the wood from the trees” whilst keeping accurate and timely records. Looks like this event should be a perfect demonstration of that in action.
The details from VTS are as follows:
Location: University of Westminster, New Cavendish Street, London, United Kingdom
Date: 31st October 2007
Time: 9:30am – 1:00 pm
The availability of Project Management applications in today’s market place are plentiful, but what about the age old problem of project Inception, Planning and Brainstorming activities? These very necessary precursors to any major project are often managed using the more traditional tools of white boards, flip charts and sticky notes.
This morning event is aimed at providing anyone with an interest in project management methodology a short but thorough clearer picture of the processes involved.
9:30am Registration Tea & Coffee
10:00am Introduction to Mapping
10:40am Visualizing PRINCE2™
11:30am Implementing New Processes
I’ll post an update after the event on 31st October and am now about to take a closer look at VTS’s Visual Bubble Ribbon … sounds very interesting …
