In Case You Missed It!
Recap: March Chapter Meeting

Over 100 PMINYC members came to the March 20th Chapter Meeting to hear Brenda Liebnow, Executive Director with Ernst and Young, present a compelling case for the value of blending project, program and portfolio management concepts to help increase business value. Her presentation covered ways to define business value, anchoring on frameworks and ways to consider capability maturity. She included a spirited panel discussion with four colleagues from E&Y who discussed two case studies and their ideas on the best ways to incorporate these concepts effectively.

The E&Y team networked with PMINYC members after the meeting and invited them to join their corporate Talent Community.
