A roundtable discussion by veteran project managers on the differences between the fifth and sixth editions of the PMBOK and the pros and cons of virtual project management.  This discussion will be streamed to YouTube as an example of using tools which promise to enhance project management capabilities for geographically diverse teams.  We will have technology advisors available to answer questions so bring your phone or laptop and learn how to connect to a virtual PMI meeting via YouTube or Facebook.  We look forward to your input regarding pros and cons and ways to move forward so we can offer productive virtual meetings to our members who are business travelers.
