IT IS HERE!  The NEW PM4Change WEBSITE  is Open for Business

Yes, the new website for Project Management for Change, the 5013c organization that hosts PMDoS, is up and running and open for business at!  Bookmark it and check it frequently as “CHANGE” is our name, world-wide “CHANGE” is our game, and things are changing and happening ALL the time!

“PMDoS Goes International” Update!

Our Colleagues Down Under:
At the PMIQueensland May Dinner meeting, Chapter President Adrian Tyler spoke about their plans to host a TRULY amazing PMDoS event this November in celebration of International Project Management Day.  As they “streamed” this meeting, you can watch it here. Just go to minute 13. Adrian and a small team have registered with PM4C to use the PMDoS Playbook and work with us collaboratively as they learn how to change the world one project at a time!

Our Colleagues in The Big Apple:
We are signing up a team from the NYC Chapter to start working with the Playbook also!

PM4Change & PMDoS Volunteer Teams Forming 

The 2016 kick-off volunteer team meeting was held on May 22 with lots of good food, enthusiasm, humor and truly egregiously-colored popsicles brought by the IT Team!?!

We dug into the planning process for both PM4C organization initiatives and, specifically, the PMDoS event. For those in attendance, they were able to self select the type of team and work that fit their interests and we wanted to provide the same opportunity to those who could not make the meeting.

If you are interested in volunteering to support our world changing efforts, please sign up!

The New Project Management for Change Coaching Program is starting!
PM4Change is accepting applications for volunteer PM coaches and indications of interest from nonprofits.

What is the PM4Change Coaching program?
This is a volunteer run pilot coaching program to support the PMDoS nonprofits by answering project management questions and providing support and resources to the nonprofits as they work on their projects.

Why are we doing this?
So, the nonprofit got their project scoped and a work plan created, but now what? We had two great PMDoS events in the DC area, but we want to have a greater impact than even our awesome single day event can create!

Volunteers sign up here to be a PM coach.

PMDoS nonprofits click here to sign up. We will answer your project management questions, point you to free resources, and help you keep your project(s) moving!

Additional information will be made available to those that sign up for the program.
