Come join our After Work on Nov 30th at Nordic Light Hotel


Some time has passed without the possibility to physically bring the CM Forum network together to discuss CM highs and lows, news, ideas, practices etc. Being able to meet for this purpose has always been highly appreciated among the network participants and we hope to reinstate this function now as we are passed pandemic restrictions.

This time we will try to map out the direction of CM. How does CM fit into current development trends and what in today’s CM practice need to be updated to function and provide value tomorrow?

Info and registration here.

Get ready for our CM Highlights!

To keep up with current CM practices and to stay in tune with our CM community, take part of CM Highlights. Each webinar is devoted to a particular CM practitioner that presents CM challenges and ongoing or planned CM development in the organization.

Standard agenda is 20 minutes presentation followed by 20 minutes of reflections, comments and questions.

Our first highlight is …

After work discussions

The AW on feb 21st attracted participants working at FMV, Ericsson, Syntell, Acando, Front Arena, Veoneer, Electrolux, Advanze and Infinera konsult. A wide range of topics were discussed. See pictures below for thoughts captured by interactive digital support. Other suggestions and tips from the participants:

  • The AW should be a reoccurring event
  • New seminar/workshop themes: CM in the cloud, CMM – is it still relevant?, CM standards and how to interpret them, the CM role, the business case for CM
  • Suggested future host: Electrolux
  • Tip: this information security standard has CM relevance: NIST – Guide for security – Focused CM of information systems.
