First KZN Branch Meeting of 2018
At the first Kwa-Zulu Natal Branch Meeting of the year we had a whopping 32 attendees. The speaker for the January meeting was the incoming Deputy Branch Lead Derek Smith (pictured front extreme left). Derek is currently Projects Portfolio Manager for Network Games at Derivco in KZN and a veteran project management professional in the ICT sector. Derek’s presentation centred on what is happening with Agile adoption and philosophies in Project Management. He advised that managers need to know about these changes keep themselves relevant and employable. He also highlighted the fact that Agile is no longer the sole domain of software developers.
Branch Lead David de Miranda (pictured front right in the white shirt) has worked hard over the last year to engage attendees and volunteers, and is in the process of filling the necessary portfolios to ensure the smooth running of the branch. If you would like to be part of the largest global network of Professional Project Managers but not sure what it’s all about, join David and his team at the next Branch meeting.
