PMP Generation - Laurent Bour, M. Sc., PMP, Manager, Portfolio Management, Desjardins GroupAuthor : PMI-Montréal
After having obtained an engineering degree in industrial data processing and artificial intelligence and a master's degree, I started my IT career as a project manager. Since arriving in Quebec 30 years ago, I have continued along this path and gradually moved to project offices and portfolio project management in the fields of IT, transportation and finance.
I have worked at Desjardins Securities, Bombardier Aerospace, Cirque du Soleil and the Société de Transport de Montréal. I am currently a Portfolio Management Manager at Desjardins Group. My career path has led me to speak at PMI Symposiums and breakfast meetings, be involved in writing the first PMI global standard for portfolio management and publish many articles. I have also been a judge of the Interuniversity Project Management Case Competition (KGP) on several occasions.
