We are going international!
PMDoS events for 2016 and 2017 are expanding as far north as New York City all the way down under to Australia…and we are just getting started! We built a playbook to teach project management organizations how to create their own PMDoS. We are also gearing up to support a region-wide event on MLK 2017 as a part of our DC area PMDoS event. Stay tuned for more information or click here to join us in expanding PMDoS globally!

The New Project Management for Change Coaching Program starts next month!
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 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.
