Keith inspires audiences to break through performance barriers and reprogramme their subconscious to accomplish their biggest goal

The 2023 Annual PMI Ireland Conference, in association with EY,  is just around the corner, and this year we are thrilled to announce that the event will be held at the prestigious RDS in Dublin on May 24th, 2023. The conference theme is "Powerskills: Unlocking Critical Behaviours Needed for the Future of Work," and we have lined up an impressive roster of keynote speakers, thought leaders, and industry experts to provide attendees with the tools and knowledge they need to thrive in today's rapidly changing business landscape. We are delighted to welcome our keynote speaker, Keith Barry. 

Pulse of the Profession® is PMI’s annual thought leadership report, charting the latest trends and developments in Project Management with insight gathered from project professionals, senior executives, and leaders from a wide range of industries across the world.  The 2023 report shows the value of Power Skills and the bigger part that they are playing in today’s business world. 

It is with this backdrop that we have picked the theme for this years conference.   As we all know, the world of work is undergoing a profound transformation, driven by technological innovation, globalisation, and shifting societal attitudes. To succeed in this new era, professionals must develop a set of core competencies or "powerskills" that go beyond technical expertise and encompass a range of behavioural traits and soft skills. These powerskills include communication, leadership, creativity, adaptability, emotional intelligence, and critical thinking, among others.

At the PMI Ireland Conference, you'll have the opportunity to explore these critical powerskills in depth, and learn how to develop them in yourself and your teams. You'll hear from keynote speakers who are on the cutting edge of research and innovation in this field, and who will share their insights and strategies for unlocking the full potential of powerskills. You'll also have the chance to network with other professionals from across Ireland and beyond, and to exchange ideas, best practices, and practical tips.

So mark your calendars for May 24th and join us at the RDS in Dublin for an unforgettable day of learning, growth, and connection. Register now to secure your spot and take advantage of our early-bird pricing. We can't wait to see you there!

All members who are thinking about obtaining their certification should be aware that the PMP Exam will be changing in July of 2020.

The last day for candidates to take the current version of the PMP exam is now 30 June 2020. Starting 1 July, 2020, the PMP exam will reflect the new exam content

A few things to keep in mind, depending on how far you are on your path to the PMP:

·       Schedule your exam early. This will allow you to select the date and location that will work best with your schedule. Most people reserve their exam date 3 months in advance.

·       Pay for your exam promptly. You can only schedule your exam after you've paid for it. Allow yourself enough time. Make sure you are able to follow the PMP timeline:

Once you open the application, you have 90 days to complete and submit it.

You have one year from the date of your application approval to pass the exam. Sometimes, more than one attempt is necessary so be sure to leave enough time to re-take the exam before your eligibility expires (one year after your application is approved).

What is changing?

Project management professionals need more diverse skills and approaches than ever before. The PMP is evolving just like the profession – and the new exam will focus on three new domains:

1.    PEOPLE – emphasizing the skills and activities associated with effectively leading a project team

2.    PROCESS – reinforcing the technical aspects of managing a project

3.    BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT – highlighting the connection between projects and organization strategy

Content that spans the value spectrum, including predictive, agile and hybrid approaches, will be included across the three exam domains. The best way to understand what is included in the exam is to review the updated Exam Content Outline.

Expect to see:

More approaches to delivering outcomes. The exam will cover both predictive (approximately 50%) and agile/hybrid (approximately 50%) approaches to project management.

Domains aligned to real-life practices. The number of domains will be reduced from five to three.
