Western Michigan Project Management Institute WMPMI's July 14, 2017 Lunch Meeting

Are you unable to make it to WMPMI's breakfast or dinner meetings? Do you enjoy learning more about the project management profession? Do you need to break up your work day? Or do you simply love a great lunch buffet?  Well, WMPMI's monthly lunch meeting is the event for you.
Location: University Club - 10th Floor of the Fifth / Third Building - 111 Lyon St NW # 1025, Grand Rapids
Speaker:  Kelly Talsma, PMP MSPM
Topic:  Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

Program and project managers should organize, plan, facilitate and manage decisions, yet often, decisions are represented on a schedule as a milestone without any activities leading up to the decision.  Poor decision making generally results in delayed timelines and cost overruns.  This presentation will cover a decision process called “decisions by objectives”, development of a decision RACI and planning the right decision method for the conditions of the decision.  Participants will learn the tools and techniques for effectively leading, facilitating and managing decisions.


  • Doors open at 11:15 AM.
  • The lunch buffet begins promptly at 11:30 AM
  • After 45 minutes of networking, the program will begin at Noon and end promptly at 1 PM.

This is a 1 Strategic and Business Management PDU event.
