New publication: PMI Belgium's University Contest

PMI Belgium's recognition of young PM potential

Recently, a new article has been published in the Journal of Modern Project Management entitled "PMI Belgium's recognition of young PM potential". In this article, the collaboration between Ghent University and PMI Belgium is discussed and an overview of the previous editions of the PMI Belgium University Contest as well as the Master Thesis Awards is given.

The articles are not free of charge, but the journal editor gave me the opportunity to put my article online for free. You can download it here for free. In return, we just ask you a little favour: share and promote the JMPM on facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, the ProTrack Community, ...anywhere!
