A couple of weeks ago, I attended and participated in the 5th Annual PMI Tampa Bay Symposium and I was impressed by the caliber of the speakers and by the organization of the event.
It’s the second time I have attended the event, but it was my first as a speaker. Experiencing the event from two different angles gave me a 360° view of what it means to organize and run an event of this magnitude. It’s even more impressive when you consider that 100% of the event was designed, planned and run by volunteers. This is something you don’t see every day.

Last week I had the honor to participate in the 5th Tampa Bay PMI
Symposium as a panelist. The event was organized very well and I was
impressed by the quality of the speakers.
I attended Carl Pritchard’s workshop on “Dealing with Project Risk and Opportunity” and enjoyed it immensely. The workshop was informative, real and entertaining at the same time, which is not easy to do when talking about risk management

I read an article in CIO Magazine about the plight of today's CIOs when multi-million dollar multi-year projects go awry. The article entitled "The CIO Scapegoat" indicates that it is unfair to hold the IT department completely responsible when there are so many other business units that contribute to a project's demise. In many cases, the CIO takes the fall for the failure and, as a direct result, they are either demoted, moved into a different organization or let go altogether.

During a symposium I attended last September I came across this interesting statistic from The Standish Group.
