What we’re about
Welcome to The Project Community - Auckland (formerly known as the PRINCE2 Auckland User Group). This group was formed in 2012 to help support those adopting PRINCE2 in the Auckland Region. We are connected to The Project Community - Wellington (also formerly known as the PRINCE2 Wellington User Group). Both groups will continue to hold free sessions throughout the year and continue to support those interested in getting their PRINCE2 foundation or practitioner qualifications but we want to actively promote and support capabilities in those other areas of project management, programme management, portfolio management, project office management, benefits management, strategic realisation and change management. We'll also take an interest in digitisation, Agile development, Business intelligence and Artificial intelligence. If you can do a project with it, then we're interested in it.
Note, there is no formal constitution and membership is free. Costs of venues, food and liquid refreshments at our meetings are through the generosity of our sponsors.
What the group is:
• Forward thinking and positive
• A great place to network at a professional level
• Diverse - in terms of views and membership
• Focused on sharing and learning from each other
• Embracing relevant new technologies and new thinking

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our next meet up. A reminder that this is a free event, it is a great networking opportunity, and you'll learn lots of new things! We hope you can join us.
We have 2 great speakers preparing for this event, here is a little insight to who they are and what they will be sharing.
Guest Speaker: Tracey Connor - Digital Test and Release Manager at Fonterra. Her topic will be Release Trains in Disguise. Tracey leads Fonterra's DevOps Test and Release function and brings her great industry experience from Deloitte, JP Morgan and National Australia Bank. Tracey's passion is helping organisations embrace and practice world-class DevOps to bring real business value, quickly.
Tracey's story is an entertaining one and the only one that I've seen to contain cuddly toys, a big green button and a potential Billy Joel lawsuit.

What's New in PRINCE2 7? is where Youssef will take you through, briefly, the changes in the seventh version of PRINCE2.
