During this session, the participants will learn 11 interesting project management practices observed during the field trip in Sweden and Norway. This will serve as a starting point for discussions on how such practices could be implemented in the participant’s organization. This includes topics such as: management of uncertainty, transparency in communication, governance, tools, and organizational aspects.
The Borealis project was an academic business trip to Scandinavia that took place 15-30 May 2015. Six project management graduates, master level, students along with Dr. Yvan Petit, the program’s director, formed the Borealis delegation. This project, funded by the PMI Academic department, was an opportunity for young professionals and professors to get involved in the international project management community.
