Project Management Institute Zimbabwe partners Oracle for 2020 conference

The Project Management Institute’s Zimbabwe Chapter will host its first event of the year in collaboration with international software giant, Oracle.

Themed “The Role of Project Management in Digital Transformation”, the conference will encourage discussion around the tools and techniques which may be adopted by project managers working towards rebuilding a sustainable environment.

Project management, as a specialised skill, is fast becoming embedded into various roles and the PMI Zimbabwe Chapter is a network offering opportunities through online webinars, workshops and conferences to ensure there is continued technical support for members and interested parties alike.

Pardon Tsikayi, the PMI Zimbabwe Chapter President said:

“The operating environment for Businesses in Zimbabwe is quite elastic and it has become imperative that organisations incorporate the primary tenets of project management.

“At the forefront, I think it is important to ensure there is continued stakeholder engagement to manage expectations in and between civil society, aid agencies, the corporate environment, the public and public service.

“There is a noticeable need for integrated services which contribute to effective time management, risk management and procurement procedures which all feed into the management of costs and, subsequently, sustainable businesses. We call this the Project Economy”.

The PMI Zimbabwe Chapter is working towards extending its reach by offering support to Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs), organisations of which, have the potential to make an impressionable impact in varying industries. The conference’s programming will seek to share ideas on how SMEs may deliver on new commercial assets and improve business capability.

To facilitate these conversations, The PMI Zimbabwe Chapter will host Mr. Werner Maritz, Director of Industry Strategy for Oracle’s Construction and Engineering, as the main speaker.

Based in South Africa, Werner brings over fifteen years’ worth of project management experience which will be accessible to all event attendees.
