Project Management Day of Service™ (PMDoS™) 2016

February 29,  2016

We Heard You NPOs and Volunteer PM/SMEs!
New Coaching Program Coming Soon!

They were fabulous. What I really wish was that I had a project manager with our team in DC all the time. That’s what we really need!PMDoS 2016 Nonprofit

Did you participate in PMDoS 2015 or 2016?

Is your nonprofit organization still experiencing some project issues as you work through your plan?  Would you like some additional opportunities for project management expertise and guidance?

Are you a volunteer project manager/SME who would like to continue helping nonprofit organizations with your project management expertise?

Project Management for Change, the 501(c)(3) organization that is responsible for PMDoS, is developing a new program designed to provide coaching services to the nonprofit organizations who participated in PMDoS and may need further assistance in completing their projects. We will be accepting applications for project managers and subject matter experts (SMEs) who want to be part of this new program.

This new coaching program will be formed around a private Facebook group to respond to nonprofit issues and use a group discussion-based weekly coaching conference calls staffed by project managers and subject matter experts (SMEs) who also participated in PMDoS. Participants will have the opportunity to share and exchange experiences and lessons learned with other NPOS and have access to an archive of recorded coaching calls for retrieval and playback.

Stay tuned for further progress reports as the coaching program develops!
