On November, PMIEF proudly co-sponsored an open house event alongside ProjectManagement.com, PMI’s home for knowledge and networking. During Open House events, ProjectManagement.com allows users to access content around a specific theme. The theme of the November 29 Open House was “Making a Difference – Giving Back to Your Community Through Project Management.”
ProjectManagement.com’s philosophy is to provide useful, relevant information to project management professionals. The PMIEF community was well-equipped to contribute suggestions and best practices around leveraging Project Management for Social Good®, including articles, blog posts, and two webinars. It’s not too late to review valuable Open House content and review the webinar recordings (which can be used to obtain PDUs).
