PMI Chapter XChange: Project Management for Innovations, R&D, and Fuzzy Projects

October 21, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:45 pm CEST


PMI Chapter Xchange Event
Project Management for Innovation, R&D, and Fuzzy projects

“Research cannot be managed by the setting of very rigid goals for when a certain result must be achieved. Then it is no longer research…you cannot promise too much in advance.” – Albert Einstein

Innovation, Research, and Fuzzy projects differ from normal business projects, the most significant being lack of clear requirements and ability to plan output from the start of the project.

Conventional project management methods may fall short in leading these projects effectively. While there is tremendous pressure on organizations to innovate, the project managers responsible for managing may sometimes be lost in absence of a well-defined project management method, processes, and tools.

What are the differences between managing an innovation project and managing an ordinary business project?

How does a project manager’s role change in these projects?

How can we track the outcome of such projects?

Join project leaders and managers from across the globe for a #pmichapterXchange collaborative event of 23-way collaboration between the PMI Chapters of; Mumbai, Netherlands, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Phoenix, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Indonesia, Gujarat, Lima Peru, Southern Alberta, Sao Paulo, Kenya, Ghana, Greece, Puget Sound, Poland, Alaska, United Arab Emirates, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Cameroon, and Turkiye while we explore Project Management for Innovation, R&D and Fuzzy projects.

Our supporting chapters are the PMI Czech Republic, South Florida, and United Kingdom.
