President's message - January 2023







A very Happy New Year to all NCPMI Members, Sponsors, and Guests in this first month of 2023!

To start a successful and healthy year, we must assess our past year to ideate a better present and future with decisive choices.

With so many unprecedented situations around the globe, be it the War, the pandemic, natural disasters, cybersecurity threats, increasing global supply shortages and social gaps between work and life, we have all bore the brunt of the impact and may feel lost and destabilized.

However, we have overcome the challenges with solidarity and resilience as individuals and as a society. We shall keep on practicing the same with determination and integrity. We must accept our lives as it presents and enhance our ability to respond best. The key to doing our best is the ability to adapt and apply. 

Taking these life principles as a guideline, We at NCPMI are ready to assess the world, adapt and choose actions that accelerate growth. We have our strategy meeting on Jan-14-2023 to pave the road ahead. If you have any suggestions for expanding the PM community, please email

The digital workplace has seen a considerable transformation. The hybrid working model has become the new norm, not the blip we once anticipated. Cutting-edge technologies have improved workstyles and service quality. Similarly, NCPMI will support these changes and introduce new digital mechanisms to foster in-house hybrid meeting capabilities and deliver in-person and virtual events, thus encapsulating the needs of all our members (geographically near and far) and presenting opportunities for Networking and Professional Growth.

We understand how human capital allows us to transform and create value. Staying true to this realization, we will keep co-creating with our members and stakeholders. We look forward to accelerating our organization's core processes to deliver the maximum value to our members and society.

Our Community involvement for Social Good has been a great success in 2022. This year we shall renew our pledge to support PMI Hours for Impact ( and the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals ( Please look forward to opportunities to give back to society. Join us this year for a social initiative or create an opportunity as a volunteer.

I look into the coming days with great optimism – because I look at the people around me, the NCPMI Board and Volunteers, and the hills we have climbed together. I know there is no mountain too high for those climbing it.

As members, sponsors and guests, you are our Strength, and I thank you for your faith in NCPMI. The NCPMI Board wishes you health, happiness, confidence, and resilience in this New Year!

Chapter Meeting – February 2023: The Case for the Agile Project Manager

02-16-2023 5:30 pm -8:00 pm
Virtual Meeting
FREE for all NCPMI members and non members
Chapter Meeting – February 2023: The Case for the Agile Project Manager


Change isn’t coming – it’s already here. The project environment is becoming more volatile,
uncertain, complex, and ambiguous. Project management and project managers must transform and evolve in order to keep up with these changes.
The Agile movement is a disruptor in the field of project management, now having over 20 years of successes and benefits to organizations that have adopted their practices. But while Agile has proven itself to be more adept in dealing with uncertainty, just following frameworks isn’t enough. What are some of the key competencies and ways of thinking we must have?

After this one-hour session, learners will be able to:

  • Describe how the project environment is increasingly unstable
  • Relay the need to go beyond Agile projects to the underlying principles
  • Consider the overall end goal of organizational business agility

Grow Your Skills

It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
