What we're about

Welcome to The Project Community - Wellington (formerly known as the PRINCE2 User Group Meetup). This group was formed in 2009 to help support those adopting PRINCE2 in the Wellington Region. We are connected to The Project Community - Auckland (also formerly known as the PRINCE2 Auckland User Group) who had their first meeting on September 18, 2012. 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

Further information on the group's history and objectives is on the "about the user group" page www.prince2.org.nz (http://www.prince2.org.nz/)
