  • 1. PDUs – Professional Development Units 2010 Events Calendar Line Up January 11, 2010 ** Chapter Meeting ** Bloomington, IL Topic: Rescue My Project: An Overview of Troubled Projects and How We Deal With it Description: This will involve a discussion amongst project professionals on real world experiences with Troubled Projects, and a methodology for effectively and efficiently planning and executing the entire project rescue process. Together, we will discuss the Rescue My Project(tm) Methodology and its similarities and differences with other methods that are being used. As project professionals, we have often tried all the tricks and tips to bring a troubled project back on track. However, as project complexity increases, so does the root causes of the trouble, and often a "back to basics" rescue approach needs to be initiated. As organizations become more receptive to project managers looking for assistance, we need to develop the skills required to assist these organizations in project recovery to avoid total failure. Speaker: Brian H. Monroe Thanks for attending! We hope to see you soon at the next Chapter Meeting! February 8, 2010 ** Chapter Meeting ** Springfield, IL Topic: The State of Illinois is rich with GIS resources. Description: This session will explore some of the opportunities and challenges that exist with GIS technologies in Illinois. The State of Illinois is rich with GIS resources. People, data, and technology have collaborated to create tremendous geospatial value and knowledge for the GIS community and beyond. However, as society’s demand for “location awareness” grows, the burden falls on the GIS professionals to produce new and enhanced services and information. For these new services to be successful, accurate, and reliable, spatial data is essential. The quality, availability, and completeness of spatial data are what ultimately determine the value of GIS. Speaker: Dan Wilcox Thanks for attending!
