Once upon a time… Blackberry, Blockbuster, Ericson, Nokia (BBEN) dominated our world of technology and entertainment. Meanwhile Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google (FANG) were nowhere to be found beside someone’s garage.
Then what happened to BBEN, and where are they now? Contrary, can we function without FANG today? How do PMs from Apple, Microsoft, Google dominate the new world of technological innovation with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data Analytics (DA)?
Bring your head, heart, and humor to this interactive keynote! We’ll share 3-C secrets that you can integrate FANG’s formula for success and reduce the risks of BBEN’s failure. Through in-depth research and powerful personal stories, we will inform, entertain, and inspire you to seek innovation in any projects that you manage, and deliver creative solutions to elevate the customer’s experience.
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.
