Sustainable pace in projects - are they only buzz-words, is it achievable in real life, or just a dream?
Speaker:  Annette Godsk Vendelbo

 About the presentation: 

For quite a few years sustainability and social responsibility have been high on the agenda in many organizations. However, the speed with which things change and the blurred boundaries between work and private time often result in stress, which is almost the opposite of these popular agendas. One way of reducing stress is to allow employees to work at sustainable pace. This is absolutely fundamental in agile systems, such as Scrum, Kanban, and SAFe. So "agile" should be the perfect match in terms of sustainability, but why doesn't it work that way in real life? Why is it so difficult to translate sustainability into concrete action? Annette will share her insights and experiences from her work with numerous teams and organizations and offer her answers to above questions.

Bio Speaker:

Annette Vendelbo is an experienced project manager and agile expert. For the past 13 years she has helped organizations getting beyond the agile hype to robust agile transformations. The context determines what is doable and she always demonstrates why agile is neither intuitive nor simple. It is a paradigm shift that requires a structured approach. She loves helping her clients find agile solutions that fit their context. She enjoys teaching and sharing her experiences with "agile". She is the author of the book "Agile transformations in practice".

About PM Fair 2021:

For more than 20 years, PMI Belgium has held an annual congress, the ‘PM Fair’, where prominent speakers of national and international reputation are invited to share their experiences and recent developments and future trends in the field of project management. This popular event is attended by over 200 PMI members, sponsoring organizations and other enthusiasts of the project management profession.

Building on last year’s successful extension of the event to become the international Benelux PM Fair, we are pleased to announce the 2021 PM Fair with the participation of the chapters of Luxembourg, The Netherlands and Belgium. Going virtual enables us to extend the existing wonderful relationship among the different chapters and to expand our potential audience to over 2000 members. Last year’s event taught us that this was a successful cooperation which we want to maintain and improve. The circumstances did change in comparison with last year and that’s why we will approach this year’s event two-sided:

  • Firstly, we plan central live online sessions for 4 days ( Monday through Thursday ).
  • Secondly, We would like to invite our Belgian members to a live event on Friday the 08th October. The sessions in our main room will also be live streamed online (you can register for them) and on top of that we will have some interesting break out sessions for our people present in the venue (these sessions won't be live streamed or recorded) of course there will be lots of time to finally network again with friends and colleague project managers. Drinks, lunch and an evening reception are included (with respect to the covid measures in place at the time of the event). This year we welcome you in the Africa Museum located in Tervuren (easy access by public transportation and by car) 

The congress will be spread over an entire week, from Monday the 4th of October to Friday the 8th of October. We intend to organize two online sessions per day, the first one at lunchtime and the second one at early evening. This way we can maximise the possibility for our members to participate at the online sessions. We will close the congress on Friday the 8th of October with an in-person closing session.
