Founded in 2007, Boston University’s annual Project Management in Practice Conference is chartered to:

  • Share the Project Management Body of Knowledge – as well as practical examples of project management best practices – with professionals throughout the region at an affordable cost
  • Motivate and train young professionals in PM methods and best practices, and prepare them for certifications
  • Provide a strong practical focus on behavioral science, communications, and soft skills as applied to PM in particular. 
  • Attract industry practitioners, decision-makers, and new practitioners who want to improve their technical competencies.
  • Maintain an aspect of Agile and lean methods.
  • Recognize Boston-area professionals and organizations who make major contributions to their organizations through their practice of PM principles.

Themes of previous conferences include Developing Project Management Competency (2015), Women in Project Management (2014), Stakeholder Management (2013), and Agile Project Management (2012), among others. The 2017 conference was a milestone event. It was integrated with IRNOP, the world’s premier project management research conference. See details for session topics and speakers.

For PMiP 2020, we are recognizing – and you will learn about – the growing trends of enterprise-level, Project, Program, and Portfolio management, and the consideration of the triple bottom line (economic, ecological and social) when it comes to planning for, attaining, and assessing true project success.
