The Project Management Institute New Zealand is one of the leading-edge chapters of the Project Management Institute (PMI), embracing a continuous improvement philosophy the organisation has experienced a lot of change.
Policies and procedures are essential in any organisation. They provide the boundaries and rules of the game so everyone in the organisation knows what’s expected. They help everyone get on with what’s important by setting guidelines for decision making and helping everyone stay compliant with by-laws and regulations. And they create fairness, an even playing field for all to operate within.
We’re looking for two or three enthusiastic volunteers to help the VP Governance review this year’s priority policies. Whether you already have well-honed analysis and writing skills, or whether you’re at the beginning of your career and would like to develop these skills, we’re keen to hear from you.
