Project Management in the Public Service - Lessons Learned


Thursday • May 31, 2018

 In collaboration with Project Management Institute, the FMI-CC is pleased to present an in-depth day on project management in the public sector.  

The day will begin with a strategic overview of the key PM principles and the direction of PM capacity in the public sector. The following Learning Objectives will be explored, allowing you to apply project management fundamentals and tools:

1) listen as common "PM" jargon is de-mystified and explained;

2) follow the Project Lifecycle to understand the various components that you may be involved with as an SME (Subject Matter Expert) if directly assigned to a project team or as a Stakeholder, and understand the difference in the 2 roles;

3) be part of an interactive project case study scenario as we build it from the "start" to the "end" of the project. Participate in deliverables and discussions to understand why Project Managers always look lost in thought as they walk briskly from one meeting to another with a note pad in one hand and an x-large coffee in the other.

Join us for an engaging day focusing on project management in the public sector!




Government Priorities of the Day - Budget 2018


Thursday • June 21, 2018

The FMI Capital Chapter has had a fantastic year and we are going out with a bang! This is the PD Day you will not want to miss! We have once again, enlisted engaging speakers to highlight some of the Government of Canada's key priorities that are of interest to you and your organization. Dynamic senior leaders, from both inside and outside Government, will share their perspectives on the various government priorities by sector: Economic Policy Priorities; Social Policy Priorities; and Innovation/Experimentation as a Top Priority. The day will feature several exciting keynote speakers throughout the day.

 This PD Day is ideally suited for those involved in delivering on these key priorities, new entrants to the public service, aspiring leaders, those involved in strategic policy, program delivery, financial management or strategies and federal budget submissions. The PD Day will also be of interest to those who are clients of these initiatives and those who wish to understand interactions between departments and central agencies, and the Federal Budget process.
