I will be flying to Orlando, FL this weekend to the PMI Global Congress 2009.

If you will be in the area and would? like to have? a chat over a cup of coffee, let me know.? Even if you won’t be attending the conference, it would be great to chat.? I’ll be at Gaylord Palms in Kissimmee Saturday afternoon through Tuesday.

Why Should You Care About Social Media?

That’s the title of the presentation I’ll be giving along with my fellow members of the PMI New Media Council.

I’ll be presenting with Bas De Baar (Project Shrink) and Cornelius Fichtner (PM Podcast).? Our presentation will be kind of a role-play to demonstrate the power of collaboration tools.

Cornelius will be playing his character from Switzerland live! What better way to demonstrate remote collaboration?? Live from Switzerland, it’s Sunday morning!? ….doesn’t have the same ring as SNL? 🙁

Other members will be talking about new/social media tools for task management, status reporting, and general project communication.? It should be a lot of fun!

Others presenting with us:? Dave Garrett (Gantthead), Elizabeth Harrin (Girl’s Guide to PM), Jerry Manas (PMThink!), Chalyce Nollsch (PM Boulevard), and Hal Macomber (Reforming PM).

Here’s a link to a short description of the presentation:? Why Should You Care About Social Media?

I’m also planning on attending these presentations while there.? You can see my bias towards attending presentations about Agile and Lean project management:

  • Managing Virtual Project Teams by Using Technology
  • A ?State of the Union? Address on Project Management: An Examination of a Profession in Crisis
  • Improve Your Crystal Ball ? Using Agile Concepts in Project Planning
  • Navigating Conflict on Agile Teams
  • Lean Project Management
  • Why Agile Focuses on the Work-Breakdown-Structure and Frequent Communications?
