This month’s topic will be: Voluminous Data Can be simplified to Inform Business Decisions
The presentation runs through an illustrative example of personal finance that covers concepts in all three areas of the PMI talent triangle – Strategic and Business Management, Technical and Leadership. The example is an analysis of potential investments that did well over the last recession, and are likely to do well in the near future. The business intelligence strategic planning cycle is reviewed as well as problem solving, business modeling, risk management, data gathering and analytical tools. The analysis uses big data and statistical processing to form actionable recommendations. The example is a recent paper presented by the author who is an independent financial analyst who in additional to financial coaching produces articles and discussions on investing, modern portfolio theory and the efficient frontier.

PMI is proud to partner with the United States Federal Government on an inspiring initiative known as Joining Forces.
The Joining Forces program is a non-partisan national initiative led by the White House in support of service members, veterans and their families. The initiative is intended to mobilize public and private sectors to ensure that these individuals have the tools and resources they need to succeed throughout their lives.
PMI and many of our United States-based chapters are getting involved in presenting service members and veterans with the many opportunities that project management has to offer. Engaging military personnel in project management is mutually beneficial as it is an excellent post-service career that is a great fit with many of the skills and disciplines learned in the service. It also helps to fill the gap of much-needed project management talent now and in the future.
PMI Alaska Chapter has a Volunteer Military Liaison and volunteer committee who are working on outreach to local Alaska Military. Contact us to find out more! And watch for newsletters and our website for updates this work.
Now more than ever project management professionals need to keep their PM skills sharp. PMIAK provides members with the resources to stay informed of project management methodologies to navigate through an increasingly challenging job market. In addition to providing programs on the process of implementing and practicing the discipline of project management, PMIAK provides opportunities to network with other project management professionals from a variety of industries.
