Project Managers are the Change Agents who build tomorrow. Why do we say this? Because we can, and we do! This page introduces you to our ChangeAgents Blog Posts.
What qualifies me to offer these insights? In addition to my consulting firm, I have worked for over 40 years, with our industry’s professional organizations. My purpose for doing so: to create beneficial change–both for their members, and for society. Thus, the wide-ranging set of topics in this blog series.
Key to beneficial societal change are two professional organizations with whom I have engaged:
- IPMA®, the International Project Management Association. This is the world’s first professional association for project managers, and is a federation of national associations; and,
- PMI®, the Project Management Institute. This was originally a USA-based professional association for project managers. Now, they have moved from one exam-based certification in project management, to a wide range of certifications, offered worldwide.
Beyond certifications, our thrust, for over 40 years, is to improve the Competence of Project Managers. This improves their initiatives, their results, their stakeholders’ satisfaction, and their organizations’ success.
Learn more about competence–beyond knowledge and exam cramming–by reading our wide-ranging blog posts and articles. We also suggest that you review the success stories here on our website. Meanwhile, if you have comments about our blog posts, I’d love to hear them! Please use our Contact Us page, to give us your feedback.
