We have recently received the following about International Project Management Day for the 5th November 2015:
Recognizing the Contributions of the Worldwide Community of Project Managers – International Project Management Day Purpose:
The need for strong and well defined project management methods and strong project leaders is clearly evident in the world wide business, government, and non profit communities. A Review of PMI’s Pulse of the Profession research indicates a significant positive difference in organizational performance when defined project management methods are executed by trained and competent professionals.
The men and women who have chosen project management as their preferred career path should be recognized for their perseverance and dedication to achieving targeted goals and objectives. It is extremely important for managers, project sponsors and executives to take a few moments and recognize the contributions to organizational success that are provided through strong project leadership and high performing project teams. IPM Day is not a celebration, it is a moment of recognition. Reserve your celebrations for your project successes and the achievements of your teams as they meet and overcome the challenges they encounter.
