The idea of IPM Day has spread across the globe. Many organizations including PMI chapters are planning events to recognize project managers and project teams for their work and their contributions to organizational objectives.
Project Objective: Increase the awareness of the value of project management within the large business, government, small business, and social communities and promote project management as a true profession and key business strategy. This includes, but is not limited to: construction, information technology, entertainment, government, aeronautics, health care, ecology, social, disaster recovery, community improvement, and quality of life projects.
Project Deliverables: Local events planned and executed by organizations who wish to recognize project managers and project teams for their contributions. Suggested events: internal company meetings, presentations about the value of project management, recognition breakfasts, lunches or receptions honoring project teams, local government recognition or proclamation, coordinated Project Management professional association events (PMI, IPMA, AIPM, etc.)or recognition at a previously scheduled project management event.
Worldwide recognition of the many project managers and project teams in every industry including non profit organizations and health care who contribute their time, energy, creativity, innovation, and countless hours to deliver products, services, facilities, and provide emergency and disaster recovery services in every city and community around the world.
The international project management day is intended to encourage project based organizations worldwide or organizations who utilize project management methodologies to schedule some type of recognition event within their organizations or coordinated locally with others to truly demonstrate appreciation for the achievements of project managers and their teams.
