Spread the Word about International Project Management Day

International PM Day is a day of recognition for project managers. The project manager provides skills and knowledge critical to the success of most organizations. Take the time to acknowledge the work of the project manager and project teams. Schedule an event even if its just a coffee break and a simple thank you. It is important for executive management to take a moment and consider the impact of successfully managed projects and the effort required to complete projects successfully

Frank P. Saladis PMP Founder IPM day

November 7, 2013 was another record breaker! Thank you for participating and giving project managers a moment of recognition.

 

International Project Management Day 2013 was another record breaking year for participation and events. An estimated 100,000+ project managers, managers, project team members and people interested in project management attended events around the world. I personally presented at 6 different events between November 6 and November 8th. The participation by organizations including PMI chapters, project management training organizations, and large business including Fortune 500 companies indicates that the professional project manager is a key contributor to organizational success and deserves some recognition. One organization in particular, The International Institute for Learning, has been supporting the idea behind IPM Day for the last 10 years and provided an amazing virtual conference attended by over 50,000 project managers. Alcatel- Lucent provided their annual event to over 3000 employees. PMI chapters including New Jersey and the UK presented their annual events to sold out audiences. Nashville Tn Chapter obtained an official government IPM Day proclamation. many other organizations scheduled events and we will make sure they are all listed and recognized for their efforts to acknowledge project managers and promote the value of competent, well trained, and professional project managers who demonstrate their leadership capabilities.

Now its time to focus on 2014 and an even bigger year for the IPM Day concept. Spread the word about IPM Day. Inform your colleagues about the purpose behind the day and lets find a way to really harness the power of the professional project manager.

Sincerely and Respectfully

Frank P. Saladis PMP, PMI Fellow
