Book Club (North)

Business Acumen

Overview:



There are many ways to improve your professional knowledge and skills. One way is to increase your knowledge by reading current and relevant project management books. We've created book clubs that are designed to be small discussion groups led by a facilitator.



It's an informal group meeting for a Saturday morning where one person serves as the facilitator to guide and promote discussion. It is an excellent way to meet other chapter members and open a dialogue regarding trends and challenges experienced by those in project management roles.



And, earn PDUs!

Some of the largest, decades-old corporations have closed their doors for good, leaving the general public shocked and confused. All around us, we see new tools taking shape. Everything we need to prosper in the changing markets is available and within reach. The Internet as we know it has changed the face of every aspect of our lives.
