Your PMI Board has established an alliance with the Northeast Wisconsin Chapter of the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA). Business Analysis and Project Management are complementary and synergistic disciplines. What you may not know is that the IIBA used PMI as their model. This means it has a robust Body of Knowledge, education and certification opportunities, and worldwide chapters that function very much like local PMI chapters. The IIBA business model and offerings will seem very familiar to anyone who has been involved with PMI for even a short time.
PMI NEW members can attend Northeast Wisconsin IIBA chapter events and monthly meetings at the IIBA member prices. This arrangement is reciprocated for IIBA members who wish to attend PMI NEW events. The only exception is the IIBA Annual General Meeting; this meeting includes Board elections and is only open to paid and active IIBA members.
The PMI NEW Board of Directors encourages you to find out more about how this new alliance might benefit you by attending one of the IIBA meetings. We are excited to provide this new benefit and we hope you find value in IIBA participation.
