Monthly the chapter holds seven geographically dispersed (Project Management) PM Breakfast Meetings in San Francisco's Peninsula, South Bay and East Bay. Each of these is a small gathering (10 to 15) project managers for a discussion of the current PM environment, sharing of information, and brainstorming of current challenges. The meeting's agenda is the topics brought by the attendees. Every meeting is facilitated by a chapter volunteer.
This is a facilitated roundtable discussion on agenda topics solicited from the attendees during introductions. The intent of the meeting is to promote an informal gathering of a dozen project managers to discuss current topics in the profession, receive suggestions from the other attendees on current project challenges, or share/receive information on items of interest.
These meetings are open to anyone who is interested.
The only cost is what you order form the menu, separate checks.

PM Insights Foster City Virtual Meeting: Overcoming Executive Inaction – Using the Cost of Decision Latency to Reverse Analysis Paralysis
PM Insights Foster City -
Overcoming Executive Inaction – Using the
Cost of Decision Latency to Reverse Analysis
According to the highly respected CHAOS Report, released every two years by the Standish Group, delays between questions and answers drive huge, negative impacts into project outcomes. It is counter-intuitive but the value of a shorter decision-making time-interval is greater than the value of a higher-quality decision. In Lean, and therefore Agile, this is recognized by the pairing of two concepts – Deferred Commitments and Last Responsible Moment.
Every PM knows methods and tools alone – even great ones like Lean, Project Management and Agile – cannot reduce those costs unless senior decision-makers make timely decisions and take action.
During this reality-based, technically-sophisticated webinar you will learn how to quantify the cost of decision-making delays and gain insights to demonstrate the pragmatic steps your leaders must take to avoid what management guru Peter Drucker summarized as, “Culture eats Vision for Lunch!”
The Forum’s mission is to provide a community for women interested in the Project Management profession, focused on mutual growth and sharing of knowledge through informal meetings, networking and mentoring. Through mutual sharing the group seeks to provide insights into Project Management issues common to multiple industries. This interaction enables participants to make significant positive changes to their work environment.

In almost every field, from engineering to sales, the transition from practitioner to leader poses a particular challenge: Refocusing individual identity to encompass the success of a team rather than relying purely upon technical prowess. No matter how many examples we see of unparalleled experts in their field whose teams perpetually flounder, when the time comes for our own transitions, learning to base our pride around an entirely new set of metrics remains a universal challenge. But there is good news! With a slight shift in perspective, the exact same skills that led to technical prowess can be used to build and support world-class teams.
