Message from Your Board of Directors
By Simi Ahluwalia, PMP
As Director of the Public Relations Portfolio for our chapter, I’m very excited to provide an overview of the portfolio as well as some initiatives we have underway for
the 2015 fiscal year. Prior to doing so I’d like to provide
some background of myself and my involvement with
PMI-SOC.
With a Project Management background in Manufacturing and due to
industry shortfalls, a number years ago I made a decision to transition
out of manufacturing and into an industry that would support my passions towards project management. I had the experience but knew
that I needed more to prove myself worthy of such a transition. As
such I pursued a Post Graduate in Project Management through
Humber College and immediately followed through with obtaining the
valuable PMP certification. Doing so led me to transition my Project
Management expertise to the Financial Services industry. In my current role as Project Director, I lead a group of Project Managers and
Business Analysts to execute portfolio objectives for the Individual Life
and Health line of business.
It was during that transition when I was introduced to the PMI Southern Ontario Chapter. At the time, the support I received by the chapter officers was a large part of my success in transitioning industries.
As the President of the Post Graduate Project Management Program
for Humber College, I became very much involved with chapter activities and liaised between chapter officials and the student body. After
completing the program, obtaining the PMP and completing my industry transition, I continued my work with the chapter as a volunteer by
participating in events and was an original member of the Communications Committee. Since then I’ve had the privilege to act as VP of
Marketing and have recently been voted into the Board of Directors…
leading me to my current role, Director of Public Relations.
The title ‘Public Relations’ is new to the chapter this year and combines functionality from both Marketing and Communications. Our
objectives for this fiscal year is to increase brand awareness and
chapter visibly, communicate chapter benefits and continue to support
portfolio partners with their communication needs. With a number of
initiatives underway, our success in achieving those objectives is
largely driven by a team of volunteers that are passionate in providing
value added services. In recognition of their efforts I would like to
take a quick opportunity to show my appreciation for their dedication
and commitment to the chapter…THANK YOU!
As we look to an exciting year ahead, I’m certain the initiatives we
have planned will support our objectives for this fiscal year.
One of which we have underway is to develop relationships with external entities to broaden our
chapters market presence. We’re also streamlining
our marketing process to support scheduled events
throughout the year. The two initiatives combined
will allow us to expand on our current communication channels as we find innovative ways to engage
our valued members and deliver chapter benefits.
With changes in communication over the years and
how we use of social media, we’ll continue to
optimize all our social media assets and further
improve chapter visibility on sites such as
LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook. As our members
increasingly direct their communication needs to
the Web, another initiative we have underway is to
seek opportunities to improve and modernize the
PMI-SOC Web site. We look at these initiatives to
maintain our brand, improve our Web presence,
expand our target audience and better communicate to chapter members.
In closing I would like to personally thank our
members and volunteers for supporting PMI-SOC
over the past 39 years.
Regards,
Simi Ahluwalia, PMP®

opportunity of earning up to 12 PDUs for attending the webinars, either on the day or at your leisure.
‘Discover, Learn and Connect’, that’s just

until this past Saturday. And when I returned, I got into a PM War!
The second event is our SOC-PMI Professional Development
Symposium on November 8th. 2 keynotes and 2 deep dive
sessions are on schedule for the day. Visit http://
www.pmisocsymposium.com/ for more details and to register

What’s a PM War and how do you get in it you ask? It’s a fun
virtual opportunity to go head-to-head with a co-member in
a battle of Project Management wits. You have 90 seconds to
answer as many questions as possible. You get +2 points for
a correct answer and -1 for a wrong answer. If you're not
sure, you are allowed to skip, but only three times. You get
challenged to a war or you start one online.
It’s just one of the many features of the new Integrated
Online Community, also a Knowledge Portal, accessible by
project management practitioners all over the world, at
www.projectmanagement.com.
How does one get into a PM War on the site? Either you start
one or you get invited to one. Imagine my excitement when
I got an email yesterday, from a member of the Moscow
Chapter who challenged me to a PM War. I had already won
and lost several, and enjoyed having so much fun! Get going
on your own war story by interacting with any PMI member
who you find online that you wish to go against.
This new world is a positive and exciting change that is different from the current http://www.pmi.org/. PMI.org has improved enhancements and provides information on membership, certifications, events, training and development, education and resources and PMBOK Guide and Standards. However, it is different from projectmanagement.com (pm.com in
short), and complements it in many ways.
The pm.com portal provides some of the above components,
i.e. knowledge content, thought leadership, but is more than
a repository of education and learning. It empowers us to
interact, network, collaborate and learn and share with each
other on a global scale. A new world to discover, but not to
fear. This quote reminds us that we should be open to jump
into challenges and not fear failure:
“Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.” Albert Einstein.
So try something new! The change this new portal brings is
an evolution that I champion because I see so much value
add in it for all of us, as individuals and as teams, to develop
personally and professionally. We can contribute individually
or collaboratively to share, learn, gain visibility, build bridges
and become influencers and trailblazers!

The steps below are taken from a LIM workshop (Oct 25)
delivered by Danielle Ritter, Manager, Communities of Practice (PMI Staff) on ‘Be a Trailblazer!’

Tune up profile
Share an experience
Produce a template
Flesh out an idea
Start a project
In this article, allow me to focus on the first step in order to
encourage and motivate you to start it. I will speak to the
other remaining steps in the next newsletter edition.
1.
Tune up profile. Here’s what’s involved:
Set up your Public Profile The Public Profile is part of every ProjectManagement.com
membership. It's there waiting for you to set it up and show
the rest of our community who you are. Once you create
your profile, you'll have the option to keep your it private to
ProjectManagement.com users, or to people in your ProjectManagement.com Network. You can hide it completely if you
wish.
First you enter identifying information as your Public Profile
and that allows you to share that information-and more-with
your fellow PMI members who have also registered with
pm.com. You will find a new link on the left navigation bar of
ProjectManagement.com that will take you to it. You can introduce yourself, post your resume, tell everyone what your
special skills are and what kinds of projects you're working
on. Your contributions will also be tracked on ProjectManagement.com, so you can see your questions, answers, discussion postings, article reviews and more.
You should set this up because the more people with profiles,
the stronger the network will become. PM.com already has a
thriving, active community and by launching a Public Profile,
you'll be helping PMI build the project management network
that the whole industry can benefit from. It's win-win
350,000 times over.
Find people to connect to Once your Public Profile is set up, you can invite other members to join your network and exchange profile information.
You can find other ProjectManagement.com members posting
in discussions, writing blogs, editing wikis, writing reviews
and comments. Clicking on other members' names will take
you to their personal profiles, where you can request to connect with them. You can also search for ProjectManagement.com members by name, location, industry, job function
or project management expertise. You can see what projects
they've been doing and their interests and site activity.
There's also a place for you to post a recommendation for
someone you know or may have worked with before. And
they can recommend you, too.
A ProjectManagement.com message system Yes, there’s a ProjectManagement.com messaging system
through which you can contact members directly. Your profile
gives you access to an Inbox on the portal. This is just for
messages among you and other members. It's a convenient
way to invite people to join your network, send personal
messages to each other, and ask a specific question to a
specific person.
Earn "pmPoints" (you see these next to your name) –
Now when you participate on ProjectManagement.com, by
leaving comments, reviewing content, posting on discussions
and stuff like that, you'll get points that will give you the
recognition you deserve. As you get more points, you move
up the levels.

Mentors & Masterminds
By Jim Czegledi
A mentor is an experienced and trusted advisor. It is usually someone more senior in position than you and someone who will listen to
you and give you some quality advice.
The first thing I encourage first time managers
or new salespeople to do is to get a mentor.
Find a person you trust and respect and who
will help you improve your odds of success.
I have had one or a series of them for more than 25 years in
my professional life and they have proven to be invaluable to
me. I have also served as a mentor to a junior colleague and
to one who was new to the organization in which I worked.
Mentoring can help you feel connected in a special way to
your mentee on your team. It will also help you develop your
own skills, explaining how to move forward and how things
work. It also builds your abilities at the same time.
A Mentor is...
● Supportive and constructive
● Available and prepared
● A good listener and sounding board
● Challenging (Mentee)
Mentoring has its benefits, according to the Center for Creative Leadership, not only for the one being mentored, but
also for the manager who does the mentoring. Managers who
provide career-related mentoring to their direct reports are
actually rated as better performers in their job by their boss.
It can be a win/win.
Management can be a lonely occupation. Why not run some
new ideas by them, share successes and failures, seek advice from potential advisors and sounding boards, either in
your own company or through professional associations.
Reverse Mentoring: Often, mentoring relationships go in
one direction: from senior to junior. For the first time in
many years, younger employees can switch it up, adding
value (through Social Media or IT knowledge) back to their
older colleagues. This is also a great way to boost morale
and team spirit, especially with new and younger employees.
If mentoring is not your thing, consider joining a mastermind
group.
Mastermind Groups are groups of different people who
contribute to each other’s development through brainstorming ideas, challenging, supporting, and providing feedback
and accountability by keeping you focused and on track.
Mastermind Groups ...
● Work on solutions/ideas with energy
● Gain experience, skills and confidence
● Overcome feeling isolated
Do you currently mentor?
Do you have a mentor?
Are you a member of a mastermind group?
If not, why not?

You Must Know Your PM Plan for Your PMP Exam
By Cornelius fichtner, PMP, CSM
Are you in the process of studying for
the Project Management Professional
(PMP)® Exam? Have you read through
what the A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK ®
Guide) says about the Project Management Plan? Confused?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are
in the right place. In this article we are going to discuss what
the Project Management Plan is, why fully understanding the
Project Management Plan is essential to both project success
and PMP Exam success, what subsidiary plans and documents are, and once approved how changes are made to the
Project Management Plan.
What is the Project Management Plan?
According to the PMBOK® Guide, the Project Management
Plan is “the document that describes how the project will be
executed, monitored, and controlled.” Objectives of the Project Management Plan include documenting assumptions and
decisions, communicating how the project will be executed,
and documenting high level goals, costs, and milestones. The
Project Management Plan is much more than a single document that is created and set aside. It integrates subsidiary
plans and documents, it is created during the Planning Process Group and is expected to be updated as the project progresses. It is a living document.
Why is understanding the Project Management Plan essential to both project success and PMP Exam success?
That is because it is the “go to” document used to answer
questions during the project, and understanding what kinds
of questions it may answer is vital to both project and PMP
Exam success. The Project Management Plan should be able
to answer why a project was sponsored and what problem it
is expected to resolve or what value the project is expected
to add. It should describe the work to be performed and what
the major deliverables or products are. It should identify who
is involved in the project and what their responsibilities are
and how they are organized. It should define how the work is
to be executed in order to meet project objectives and how
any changes will be monitored and controlled. If all of these
are included in the Project Management Plan, then you will be
able to answer the why, what, who, when, and how type
questions that may arise during a project.
What are subsidiary plans and documents?
These are most often outputs of the other Planning Processes. For example, the Cost Management Plan is an output
of the Plan Cost Management Process. It describes how project costs will be planned, structured, and controlled. It is
considered a “subsidiary plan” to the overall Project Management Plan. Subsidiary plans are all of the “plan” outputs from
the Planning Processes that include Scope Management, Requirements Management, Schedule Management, Quality
Management, Process Improvement, Human Resource Man-
agement, Communications Management, Procurement Management, and Stakeholder Management. The subsidiary plans
may be defined at a high or detailed level depending on the
type of plan, the specific needs of the project and the requirements of the performing organization.
Subsidiary documents are the baselines developed as part of
the Planning Processes. They include the schedule baseline,
cost performance baseline, and scope baseline. Don’t forget
that the scope baseline also includes the scope statement,
WBS, and WBS dictionary.
How are changes made to the Project Management Plan?
Changes to the Project Management Plan are made through a
Change Control System. This system consists of methods to
request, review, and approve changes. Requests are typically
made using a form, either paper or electronic. Requests are
then reviewed by the project manager, project sponsor, select set of stakeholders, a change control board, or by whoever is tasked to review requests by the performing organization. Once a change is approved the Project Management
Plan is updated. Changes that are not requested through the
Change Control System or approved should not be implemented. Including unapproved changes will let the project go
out of control.
The Project Management Plan is a vast topic and this article
has only scratched the surface of a few aspects. There are
many other facets such as the other inputs besides subsidiary
plans and documents, how it is used to communicate how the
project will be executed and controlled, the importance and
usage of a Project Management Information System, and the
formality of the Project Management Plan all of which are
vital to know and understand for the PMP Exam. A few additional aspects to keep in mind when studying the Project
Management Plan are that it is typically a formal written
document, that it guides project execution and control, that it
is approved by the project stakeholders, and that the project
cannot start until the Project Management Plan is approved.
In order to understand this topic completely read the Develop
Project Management Plan section in the PMBOK® Guide. Then
explain what a Project Management Plan is, how it is developed, and how it is changed to a friend who is not a project
manager. Because if you can explain it clearly to them, then
you fully understand it yourself; and use a Project Management Plan for your projects because practice makes perfect
when it comes to the PMP Exam.
