Crossing industries can be daunting. The hope is that the learning curve will be small and new hires will quickly become a valued member of staff. The worst case scenario: the milieu will be so different that the new hire never learns enough to contribute and, after struggling, leaves to find a new job.
On July 14th, Maya Townsend of Partnering Resources will facilitate a Project Management Institute chapter meeting that will help project managers (and PM hopefuls) understand how project management operates in different industries. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with subject matter experts, ask questions about what it’s really like to work in specific industries, and network with peers.
