What is the Project Management Day of Service all about?
Project Management Day of Service (PMDoS for short) began in Washington DC in 2014. Organized by a group who call themselves Project Management for Change (PM4C for short), their first event brought together 300 volunteers to provide pro-bono Project Management services to 100 local non-profits. Since then the event has been replicated in several US cities, and has expanded globally.
The premise of the event is simple - get Project Management professionals who are willing to donate their time and experience together with charities and other not-for-profit organizations who need help.
Whilst the PMDoS is a one-day event, the engagements last much longer and provide lasting benefits to the organizations who benefit from support. They provide lasting benefit to communities too, as the support offered by Project Management professionals can help get events and initiatives off the drawing board and into real life.
Wellingtone, UK PPM consultancy have partnered with PM4C to hold a Project Management Day of Service to the UK. On May 4th they will run an PMDoS event to bring experts together with 30 UK charities. You can find out more about how it will work in the infographic below.
