The month of April is the month of flowers. It brings back the life and the energy that seems to slow down in winter. The days start to get longer and brighter. The blue bells, the tulips, the daffodils and many other flowers beautify the earth with their lovely colors. The trees of cherry blossoms and magnolias adorn the streets with their magnificent flowers and fragrance. The little birds are busy chirping and picking up straws for making their nests. Indeed, there is life and fresh energy everywhere in the nature! We hope that you also feel refreshed and energized with this renewed energy of the spring season.

Nowadays, facilitation appears to be gaining value. What are its roots? What are its best applications in a world that requires constant adaptability, adjustment and innovation?
In this article, we will look into the roots and development of group facilitation as well as several techniques that can be useful for a broad range of projects, teams and organisations.
The deep roots of facilitation
Group facilitation is equally useful in: (i) sequential, “predictive” projects, throughout the project life cycle, and (ii) rapid, agile projects and product developments. Moreover, workshops can be deployed for phrasing the project justification, scope definition, project planning, risk analysis, stakeholder engagement and lessons learned.
Advice for the use of facilitation can be found in PMBoK® IV and even more in PMBoK® VI. However, it does seem that the agile philosophy has taken facilitation to the forefront. Why? Possibly due to its essentially collaborative orientation, the need of constant communication within teams as well as between teams and users or a broad community of organisational stakeholders.
I had the pleasure to attend to the practical PMI Learn Thru Practice PM workshop on March 28th in Brussels with 17 other people. I am very new to project management and this was actually my first exposure to project management. Here's an overview of the three top things that I learnt, practiced and know that I can do again.
On 21st of February, a PMI satellite event took place in Brussels; it was the opportunity for a motivated community of ‘brusselers’ to meet and discuss about project management.
But how a satellite can be organized? The idea came during a previous chapter event in October 2018, where our Director Christine Dassy proposed to 2 Brussels PMP members, Fabio Cristofoletto and Jean-Luc Loheac, to find a place, propose a date and of course an agenda!
As if it was a project, the two organizers established the deadline (21/02), started the retro schedule in order to identify the activities on critical path. The first one was of course the site identification! The choice of the site was mainly driven by the proximity with transport facilities and the two organizers found the European district as the best candidate. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants in the area, but the place needed to have a good meeting room with the possibility also to seat for the dinner or for a drink afterword. Finally, the place was found close to Mérode, a perfect location!
The following task was to prepare the topics, the agenda and how to manage the event. Fabio and Jean-Luc decided to propose two arguments, which are day-to-day tasks in their jobs: the role of PMO and how to implement a Quality system in an organization. A very high number of people were interested by the proposed subjects and shortly the maximum capacity of the meeting room was reached.
Finally, we arrived at the day of the event. The PMI satellite event started with a welcome drink with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. After this first moment, the workshop started; Fabio and Jean-Luc asked people on which subject to begin. PMO was the first choice and a useful and interesting debate took place about PMO mission in different organizations and the various maturity levels of such function. Quality was the second subject and all participants exchanged a lot of ideas and information using their various experiences as reference.
The event ended with a warm dinner and the wish to organize similar events in the near future!
Over the past several weeks, our chapter leaders have participated in discussions with PMI and provided feedback on our chapter experience. Now we are partnering with PMI to learn more from you and your peers about what we can do to enhance your chapter membership, and we’d like to invite you to participate. We would love to hear your insight! You should receive or have recently received a survey from PMI asking for feedback on your chapter experience. Thank you to all of those who responded!
By filling out the form below, you will be letting PMI know that you are interested in participating in a 2-week engagement within their Customer Feedback Panel. You’ll engage with other chapter members from our chapter and around the world to discuss the chapter experience.
The time commitment is minimal – about 20 minutes a week for 2 weeks – but your contributions will be invaluable to us.
PMI will review the list of people who express interest in participating and will send out formal invitations to those who are selected. There are a limited number of slots, so selections will be made to ensure that diverse opinions are represented.
We are all Project managers one way or another! We are all involved in one or more projects in our day to day, a lot of people to keep track of/engage, a great amount of work that keeps piling in your desk. When we look at study by PricewaterhouseCoopers, more than 60 percent of project failures are linked to internal issues such as insufficient resources or missed deadlines, discover how to plan the perfect project with this guideà https://ptdrv.linkedin.com/a8kr0e5
