News

March 13, 2020

COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, has the world on edge.  Organizations across the US are restricting business travel, encouraging work from home, and promoting vigilant hygiene practices – to reduce risk and discourage the virus from spreading.

Here in Northeast Ohio, schools are closing, sporting events are played to empty arenas, and major events are being cancelled.   At PMINEO, we are encouraging a pragmatic, not panicked, response.  Follow the guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Coronavirus CDC

We must be responsible to our members, their families, and other guests.  As such, our March Chapter meeting will be a virtual event, still on the evening of Wed, March 18.  Please utilize Zoom or Facebook Live to join the conversation – and learn about the new PMBOK and PMP Certification exam.  Visit https://pmineo.org/component/eventbooking/3-18-20-chapter-meeting to find information for using our virtual technologies.

Chapter Leadership will evaluate all future events and meetings based on the current situation and public health guidelines.  Please check our website, follow us on social media, and the Monday Pulse for them most up-to-date information regarding that status of our events.

Did you notice our new website? PMI announced a rebranding in October 2019 and PMINEO released our new logo and website during our Annual State of the Chapter Meeting on February 19, 2020. We are excited to share the meaning behind our new colors and symbols:

The Project Economy

Today, the way we work has changed. Organizations and people are centered around a portfolio of projects, creating an economy of projects. At PMI, we call this new way of working “The Project Economy.”

Q: What are the new colors and what do they mean?

A: There are 3 colors that make up our new brand - Tangerine, Aqua, and Violet

Tangerine: We are fearless. We’re unafraid to try new approaches, we learn from our failures and move forward, paving the way for those brave enough to do the same.

Aqua: We are bright. We enlighten and energize people to make a difference in their careers and an impact in their communities.

VioletWe are nurturing. We understand what our community needs, help people get where they want to go, and celebrate them along their journey.

Q: What are the new symbols and what do they mean?

A: There are 10 unique symbols that make up the language of The Project Economy.

 Collaboration: We can’t do it alone. Whether it’s partnering with a colleague, client, company or non-profit organization, each of us brings something unique to the table. And we are made stronger when we work together.

C:\Users\canderson\Documents\CINDY-F\Logos\2019 PMI logos\Symbols\DeterminationSymbol\Determination\Black\RGB\pmi_sym_dtrm_blk_rgb.jpg Determination: Sometimes projects go according to plan. Most of the time, not. Perseverance is needed to complete any project and successfully deliver outcomes that make a difference in the world.

Change: Disruption isn’t new—it’s constant. Learning how to navigate change is inherent to our growth and challenges us to continuously evolve. Greater challenges bring greater satisfaction in giving back.

C:\Users\canderson\Documents\CINDY-F\Logos\2019 PMI logos\Symbols\InnovationSymbol\Innovation\Black\RGB\pmi_sym_inno_blk_rgb.jpg Innovation: New ideas. New products. New methods. Constant transformation is what helps us tackle new problems and find fresh solutions. We know that the world isn’t one-size-fits-all. We bring new takes on everyday things to constantly move forward and make life better across the world.

C:\Users\canderson\Documents\CINDY-F\Logos\2019 PMI logos\Symbols\TeamworkSymbol\Teamwork\Black\RGB\pmi_sym_tmwk_blk_rgb.jpg Teamwork: Projects are delivered by people, but winning projects are delivered by teams. Project delivery relies on team players and people who contribute added value to any project, making the team stronger.

C:\Users\canderson\Documents\CINDY-F\Logos\2019 PMI logos\Symbols\OutcomesSymbol\Outcomes\Black\RGB\pmi_sym_outc_blk_rgb.jpg Outcomes: We celebrate not just the process, but the positive impact that projects around the world make on society. We’re changing the world—for the better—one project at a time.

C:\Users\canderson\Documents\CINDY-F\Logos\2019 PMI logos\Symbols\GrowthSymbol\Growth\Black\RGB\pmi_sym_grwt_blk_rgb.jpg Growth: Change and transformation, while at times unfamiliar, spur progress. Whether it’s skill development or organizational expansion, growth brings new opportunities into our economy—and contributes to the greater good.

C:\Users\canderson\Documents\CINDY-F\Logos\2019 PMI logos\Symbols\VisionSymbol\Vision\Black\RGB\pmi_sym_visn_blk_rgb.jpg Vision: This can mean being unconventional. It can mean coming up with new ideas to solve new challenges. It’s about perspective, seeing the big picture, and the ability to create solutions for now that are sustainable for generations to come.

C:\Users\canderson\Documents\CINDY-F\Logos\2019 PMI logos\Symbols\CommunitySymbol\Community\Black\RGB\pmi_sym_comm_blk_rgb.jpg Community: The people that are part of our world make it what it is today. Our community is one of our most valuable assets. We celebrate it and keep it going by welcoming all who wish to join us to make the world a better place.

Philanthropy: Making dreams a reality takes more than a vision — it takes action and dedication. We nurture and inspire the next generation to learn, grow, and achieve their goals so that they too can benefit society. This continued commitment and passion enables us to contribute to the welfare of our youth — and their communities.

List of Books Under Consideration

    1. The 5 Levels of Leadership: Proven Steps to Maximize Your Potential by John Maxwell
      True leadership isn't a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than "the boss" people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership-where experience will allow you to extend your influence beyond your immediate reach and time for the benefit of others.

    2. Nice Girls Don't Get the Corner Office: Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabotage Their Careers by Lois P. Frankel  
      She teaches you how to eliminate these unconscious mistakes that could be holding you back and offers invaluable coaching tips that can easily be incorporated into your social and business skills. Stop making "nice girl" errors that can become career pitfalls

    3. How Women Rise: Break the 12 Habits Holding You Back from Your Next Raise, Promotion, or Job by Sally Helgesen 
      Leadership expert Sally Helgesen and bestselling leadership coach Marshall Goldsmith have trained thousands of high achievers--men and women--to reach even greater heights. Again and again, they see that women face specific and different roadblocks from men as they advance in the workplace. In fact, the very habits that helped women early in their careers can hinder them as they move up.

    4. How Remarkable Women Lead: The Breakthrough Model for Work and Life by Joanna Barsh
      Based on five years of proprietary research, How Remarkable Women Lead speaks to you as no other book has, with its hopeful outlook and unique ideas about success. It's the new "right stuff" of leadership, raising provocative issues such as whether feminine leadership traits (for women and men) are better suited for our fast-changing, hyper-competitive, and increasingly complex world.

What Executives Need to Know About the Future of Project Management

Executives in both the public and private sectors are beginning to recognize the full benefits that project management can bring to their organizations. As such, the landscape for project management is changing and six pillars of project management have emerged.

PMINEO-Elections---Christy-Laird-PhotoI am Christy Laird, PMP and have been a PMINEO member and volunteer for 8 years. I don’t recall a time during my tenure that I wasn’t in some type of volunteer capacity. I started my first PMINEO assignment on the programs committee as the Director of Events. In March 2017 I moved into the VP of Membership position. I additionally volunteered to rollout a few of the marketing projects that we started last year by filling an interim VP of Marketing role for 6 months in 2017. In that short tenure, I worked with our webmaster and the Board to rollout the new email system, Zoho, elevate a new and improved homepage, and setup up our Document storage system.

During my tenure as VP of Membership, I have worked with a data analyst to create a full membership and events access database to bring together data that is not normally easily searchable. Querying the data from PMI and Proteon systems is a very manual process (member and event data not aligned). With the creation of this new database and a volunteer analyst to support it, we can finally start doing analysis we haven’t been able to do before on our membership and understanding their interests (through event registration and attendance) with PMINEO.

I graduated from Youngstown State University with a Math major/ CS minor. I celebrated my 20-year anniversary this June at Progressive Insurance. I was a programmer for 7 years and an IT Manager/Project Manager for 13 years. I received my PMP in 2010. In January 2015, I won the 2014 Kerzner Project Management Excellence award. A very humbling experience being recognized not only for my Progressive projects, but for all the hard work and time I have invested in PMINEO. It’s easy to volunteer and do my job, it’s another to be recognized for it all by your friends, peers and coworkers that think you do it well. My other additional volunteer extracurriculars: Secretary on FELC (Friends Early Learning Center) Board, Supervisor for Kids Kingdom child check-in team at Willoughby Hills Friends Church, and the web administrator and event planner for the NEW ERG (Network of Empowered Women Employee Resource Group) at Progressive. I’m a change agent and love any variety of work that will challenge me and give me new perspectives.

Attending LIM in 2017 for the first time inspired me to do more as a chapter leader. I’d like to make a broader impact across PMINEO. I am a versatile volunteer and I will pitch in wherever I’m needed without being asked, I offer to help whenever I can. Our membership base is at an all-time high, our retention is increasing, I would like to see our volunteer base grow. The more engaged the members are as volunteers, the more they will get out of the chapter. I aspire to be an engaged Board member and active participant in the chapter activities. Seeing our chapter recognized globally by PMI for being an active and engaged chapter above and beyond the norm should be a challenging, but not unrealistic, goal over the next 5 years.
