From the On February 13th is the 15th edition of the Program Portfolio Management Conference (PPM conference). The central theme of this year is: a new view on Portfolio. How do you stay in control of the innovation and transformation?

Portfolio management takes the lead in innovation and transformation by integrally directing between policy and implementation. And with a wide variety of embodiments, such as programs, projects and agile teams: the hybrid portfolio is born and puts more than ever a stamp on the future. But, how do you get a grip on the hybrid portfolio in a time of agility and the continuous pressure of transformation and innovation? How do you get in the lead (again) and how do you, as a portfolio manager, help the management and the management to get grip?

 2017 11 07 event


In a continuous search to provide valuable information and knowledge for our members to grow and excel in their profession, we are very pleased to exchange our regular 2 presentation evening chapter meeting for a FULL day event! We are welcomed at Mikrocentrum’s yearly HighTech Project Manager event, which this year has the theme ‘De Wendare Project Manager’.

This full day program with three parallel tracks is normally offered for 295,= Euro (excl VAT), but due to the fact that Mikrocentrum will become Silver sponsor of the PMI Netherlands Chapter they have offered a special introduction / welcome discount for the PMI members to attend the event for only 50,= Euro (excl VAT). Please note this is a one-time introduction discount exclusive for PMI members for this year only!

So although there will not be a free Chapter Meeting in November, we believe that this event, even though it is in Dutch, is a more than fitting alternative. This event will also allow you to network with the HighTech Platform project managers and thus enables both parties to exchange more idea’s knowledge and lessons learned.

Since the event is in Dutch, we are sharing the announcement in Dutch below.

(English’s only speakers, don’t worry: the December event will be in English again and will be in Amsterdam  -to be announced soon-)


***** Dutch announcement *****


Hoe wendbaar bent u als projectmanager?

Hoe springt u in op uw snel veranderende projectomgeving? Hoe kunt u situaties meer naar uw hand zetten? Neem jaarlijks één dag de tijd om kritisch naar uzelf als projectmanager te kijken en kom op 7 november naar Efteling Golfpark, De Moer.

Agile, of niet?
Steeds meer organisaties kiezen voor de theorieën van wendbaarheid (agile). Hoe doet u dat?

Deze dag laat u kennismaken met het projectmanagementvakgebied en welke vaardigheden u hierin tegenkomt. Daarbij komen de drie volgende invalshoeken op een praktische manier aan bod:

  • Projectmanager
  • Projectteam
  • Projectmanagementproces.

De verschillen en overeenkomsten tussen de traditionele projectmanagementmethodiek en de agile methode worden onder de loep genomen. Moeten we allemaal agile gaan werken; de nieuwe manier van projecten trekken? Ontdek wat voor u het beste past.

Tevens wordt u deelgenoot van misschien wel het leukste project van Nederland waarbij fantasie en techniek gecombineerd worden. Kom luisteren hoe deze projectmanager het heeft aangepakt.


For the complete agenda with all topics and speaker please find the link to the registration here:

Graag maken wij u attent op de 13e editie van hét jaarcongres Project Portfolio Management (PPM) dat zal plaatsvinden op woensdag 31 mei 2017 in Congrescentrum Figi te Zeist. Het centrale thema van deze editie is:


PPM: naar een wendbare, agile organisatie, met behoud van koers


In veel organisaties heeft agile werken topprioriteit. Het is geen geheim dat de wendbaarheid van vitaal belang is in onze moderne, complexe, interruptieve en snel veranderende samenleving. Maar hoe zit het met de koers en de visie die de wendbare organisatie leiden naar het realiseren van de strategie? Hoe ontwikkelen organisaties zich naar meer agile manieren van werken en agile portfolio besturing? Welke rol wordt verwacht van de portfolio manager in deze transitie? Hoe ga je als portfoliomanager leiden (of volgen)? Welke kansen biedt dit voor portfoliomanagers?

Ook dit jaar verkennen we diverse thema’s en uitdagingen in verschillende situaties, met sprekers uit verschillende organisaties en vanuit verschillende perspectieven.
