Respecting diversity and inclusion within a team is among the key aspects in building a high performance organization culture. Project managers often use tools to identify cultural gaps within a team to raise awareness regarding the manifestation of cultural differences. It can also be used by a team to identify the differences and deal with them. A strong culture impacts the values and norms of an organization and it creates and supports the vision, mission and values.

In this edition you’ll find a couple of interesting articles highlighting the importance of cultural understanding in a multicultural and cross functional set-up, combined with an introduction to the new PMI brand and our major highlight of the month i.e. our volunteers and new members event in November as part of 50 years PMI anniversary.

Last but not the least, call for volunteers, especially in the areas of Membership and in organizing Events, you have opportunity to build on your talent. Visit PMI NL Chapter site Volunteer page https://pmi-netherlands-chapter.org/index.php/get-involved/volunteer-opportunities.
