Professional project managers from 300 top companies will gather on April 15-16 in Cincinnati for the Southwest Ohio Chapter of the Project Management Institute. Now in its 7th year, this mega event is the premiere project, program, and portfolio event in the Tri-State. Will you be there?
Hundreds of PMs will be there to broaden — and deepen — their subject matter expertise. The conference seminars cover the spectrum of core topics from basic finance, Agile, and risk management, to the “people side” of project management such as emotional intelligence, team communication, and connecting with team members.
Watching for unique project management talent
Will Krambeer, Fusion’s Project Management Discipline Lead, and Jim Murphy, Fusion Talent Acquisition Manager, will attend and host a booth at the conference. If you are attending, please stop by, meet them and learn more about Fusion. They are always interested in meeting top project management talent. Plus, you can register to win a Google Nexus with WiFi 7” touchscreen tablet, or either of two sought-after industry books on Agile project management.
Fusion holds a high standard for project management recruiting, and as Krambeer explained, the 20-year old technology-mobile-digital consulting company has a track record and client base that demonstrates why it seeks out PMs with a unique blend of skills, perspective and values.
Fusion focuses on solving the business problem
The Fusion project manager (PM) is responsible for tailoring the project delivery approach and guiding the Fusion team to meet our promises to customers. The PM understands the business problem and leads the team to address it in the most effective manner for that customer. Whether leveraging Agile, waterfall, or somewhere in between, Fusion PMs are responsible for utilizing the talents and expertise of the team members to deliver measurable results.
Diverse project teams create better solutions
While many solutions are similar, each business problem is exclusive to the individual client. Our teams have diverse skill sets to create a knowledge base that enables us to adapt to unique client situations. This eliminates the possibility of taking a one-dimensional or “cookie-cutter” approach to our projects. Clients expect our experiences to help them solve problems, not just duplicate a solution used for another client.
A true service orientation delivers outstanding project solutions
The Fusion PM has a sincere desire to help clients. That drive creates the energy to inquire beyond the obvious, research past insights and current offerings, compare, and double-check. Solving the customer’s business problem is the guiding principle. This also involves “telling it as it is” in order to arrive at the true definition of the business problem and associated impact. We have to be honest in order to define the success criteria of any solution we develop.
Fusion Alliance Project Managers’ values extend beyond business hours. Whether serving their communities, helping a neighbor or volunteering at church, the Project Management Team truly lives Fusion’s values throughout all aspects of their lives.
If you plan to be at the Horseshoe Casino April 15-16 for the conference, we’d like to meet you. Can’t make it this year? Let us know in the comment section what PM conferences or events you recommend.
