Project Management in History - The First Jeep

Paul Bruno, PgMP, PMP

Proud Sponsor of May2015 Chapter Meeting

"The First Jeep” tells the story of the American Bantam Car Company, which dared to meet the challenge to build the prototype in the impossible timeframe of 49 days. The “¼ ton truck 4×4 light project,” as the effort was titled by the Army, represents a textbook case of entrepreneurship and project management that holds lessons for today’s business leaders and project managers. Contemporary leaders face a similar environment of rapidly changing technology, volatile economic circumstances and turbulent international relations, forces that assailed the U.S. Army throughout the interwar period.

Paul Bruno has more than 28 years of experience in the fields of project management and information technology. His extensive knowledge in the PM field allowed him to recognize the excellent example of project management that the development of the first Jeep prototype represented. This presentation  merges a compelling historical event with project management and entrepreneurial lessons under the umbrella brand “Project Management in History,” a book series that looks at historic projects and draws comparisons to challenges encountered in the projects of today.

Interviewing for Today’s Project Manager Job – for both interviewers and interviewees - 2PDUs

Yesterday’s interview tactics do not apply to today’s market place.  Join us for this informative session with hints and tips for today’s interviewing.  What should you know to be prepared for a Skype interview; manager interviews that do not deal with project management; phone interviews; interviews at job fairs and all of the various other flavors that are common today?

No, this is not the standard “dress right, look them in the eye, prepare” mantra that you’ve always heard.   Today you can expect all of the old questions you’re used to hearing but there will be some new questions that deal with today’s realities of social media and emerging technology.  What should you be aware of when being interviewed by/interviewing someone from another generation?  Join us for this workshop and take your interview skills to the next level.
