jerry bussell e1512599535801 Monthly Dinner Meeting – Outstanding Lean presentation

Thank You to Jerry Bussell and his son James for a striking presentation at our April dinner event.

Over 50 chapter members enjoyed his astute and entertaining insight into the background and importance of Lean Thinking for modern companies to reduce waste and increase efficiency.

We look forward to engage Jerry further with his work in the Jacksonville Lean Consortium and can provide the slides from the evening on request to anyone who wishes to further study this key cultural differentiator.


PMI Spotlight: EMAG

EMAG 1The Ethics Member Advisory Group (EMAG) works in partnership with PMI Legal Staff as the Global Advocates in educating PMI members, certificate-holders and non-member volunteers regarding the PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (the “Code”). 

The EMAG acts as Product Leader in creating tools and techniques to facilitate stakeholder understanding and application of the Code, identifies improvements, facilitates translations to the 13 official languages of the Code, communicates ethics related issues, and interfaces with the Ethics Review Committee to share knowledge, expertise and content.

Periodically, you will see posts and thought-provoking questions via our Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn feeds. If you interested in joining the discussion, we hope you Like, Comment and Share. If you’d like to learn more about the EMAG, contact our chapter or send a note to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
