The 6th International Plenary – ISO/TC 258 Project, programme and portfolio management

30 Aug
Last week I attended my first ISO plenary (conference). The focus of the plenary was to further develop standards for  ISO/TC 258 Project, programme and portfolio management (http://www.iso.org/iso/iso_technical_committee?commid=624837). I was impressed with the level of engagement as the event opened with messages from the Premier’s office as well as messages from the offices of the Lieutenant Governor and the Governor General of Canada. The messages set the tone for the importance of the work ahead for the 60 delegates representing 19 countries.
Prior to this event I had only participated in our Canadian conference calls (mirror committee). As I engaged in the plenary, I gained a better appreciation of the process and the scope of the work being done. It was very rewarding knowing that you are contributing to an international standard that will improve the way our world executes projects.
