Abstract of the presentation:

Here are the questions we plan to discuss on the call. Join in and ask your own questions!

* We're sure you've had an ear full of IT Project management. How is your type of project management different from IT Project Management?

* How is your type of project management similar to IT Project Management?

* Does your industry subscribe to the PMI PMBOK description of Project Management or are there other standards

* Do executives in your industry support PMP certification or not? Why? What is their reasoning?

* Do you feel that the PMBOK applies to your industry?

* Can you explain the most important aspects of PM to your industry?

* What are the PM methodologies applied in your industry?

* Why do you think that PMI seems to be overrun by IT people? -- It did not start out that way.

* Do non-IT project managers get the same disrespect from executives as the IT project managers?

* Are Non-IT Project managers usually asked to do other jobs/roles besides just the PM role?

* Are non-IT PMs usually told that PM practices are not valuable (as is often the case in IT Project Management)?

* Do you know of any executives in your industry that rose to their current positions via a Project Management career path?

* What is the career path for PMs in your industry? I.e. how do they get to be PMs and what careers are there after being PMs?
