ADVANCING PROJECT MANAGEMENT FOR NATIONAL DEVELOPMENT
In October 7-8 of 2017, PMI Mongolia Chapter organized its fourth annual conference "Advancing project management for national development” with record breaking 400 participants and 38 national and international speakers making it the chapter's largest conference to date.
/Head of Project Management Department/
While concept of Project management was globally developed 70 years ago, Mongolian professionals familiarized with the concept in the early 2000s - the time that projects with foreign investment started being implemented in our country. And, there is an increasing need for our experts to work on the same level as foreign experts and maintain excellent communication with each other.
MCS Property LLC’s vital mission is to fulfill “World Development in Mongolia”. Therefore, we are always pleased to support PMI Mongolia Chapter’s activities and share our extensive experience with younger generation in project management.
/Head of Project Management Department
By attending the conference, we get updated on latest trends and tools of project management and the industry. We also network with fellow peers working in project management field, and in this case the conference became the bridge between parts of project management practitioners.
/Business Development Director/
Annual International Conference, hosted by PMI Mongolia Chapter is highly effective. The conference not only invites famous authorities or influential executives, but also highlights those who make massive contribution to their country by implementing and organizing projects in local or international industries - experienced project managers who are modest, humble and hard-working. Personally, I really like attending the conference, because it gives us a chance to learn from these professionals and their experience.
Since every project has its unique characteristics, being informed about problem and solutions, opportunities and losses of certain project is valuable for attendees. Therefore, I am really grateful for PMI Mongolia Chapter for conveying these information to others and offering an opportunity to learn and network.
/Digital works Business Development Director/
Project management knowledge and skills are important to one’s personal development, moreover company’s future and nation’s development. I’m beyond grateful - at previous years conferences we have met many interesting professionals, and received latest information about project management know how and trends.
