Project Management Day of Service PMDoS

Project​ ​Management​ ​Day​ ​of​ ​Service​ ​(PMDoS)®​ ​was started​ ​in​ ​2014​ ​in​ ​the​ ​US​ ​by​ ​PM4Change, a group​ ​of​ ​40​ ​project​ ​managers​ ​interested​ ​in​ ​civic​ ​engagement​ ​while​ ​furthering​ ​their​ ​beloved profession.​ ​Driven​ ​by​ ​an​ ​all-volunteer​ ​PMO,​ ​the​ ​first​ ​event​ ​brought​ ​together​ ​300​ ​volunteers​ ​to provide​ ​pro​ ​bono​ ​PM​ ​services​ ​to​ ​100​ ​local​ ​nonprofits—a​ ​resounding​ ​success​ ​echoed​ ​across​ ​the​ ​DC area,​ ​within​ ​the​ ​PM​ ​community,​ ​and​ ​even​ ​by​ ​the​ ​White​ ​House​ ​blog.

The Wellingtone partnership with PM4Change, means we are the exclusive UK Partner for this amazing event. Our next event will take place in Manchester on Thursday 6th December 2018.

Philosophy

PMDoS​ ​is​ ​guided​ ​by​ ​a​ ​few​ ​simple​ ​principles:

  • Provide​ ​project​ ​management​ ​expertise​ ​to​ ​community​ ​organisations​ ​that​ ​do​ ​not​ ​understand​ ​the project​ ​management​ ​methodology​ ​or​ ​may​ ​not​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​afford​ ​project​ ​management​ ​services.
  • Create​ ​a​ ​global​ ​framework​ ​for​ ​project​ ​managers​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​pro-bono​ ​project​ ​management services.
  • Promote​ ​and​ ​elevate​ ​the​ ​status​ ​of​ ​the​ ​project​ ​management​ ​profession​ ​by​ ​clarifying​ ​its​ ​unique value​ ​proposition.

Process

During each consultation session at the PMDoSTM event, project management professionals  individually meet with representatives of the participating non-profits to review prepared “problem statements.” Using these problem statements as a springboard, the project management professionals SMEs identify potential roadblocks, develop clearly defined scope statements and create actionable, customised project plans that will serve as blueprints for business sustainability.

PMDOS | Feel the Force

On Project Management Day of Service (PMDOS), Wellingtone and our fellow volunteers helped a variety of UK based non-profits to feel the force by unleashing the boundless potential of the PM profession to empower and transform communities.

Approximately 25 charities attended the event that was held at the Microsoft offices in Paddington, London to receive support and guidance from leading Project Management Practitioners from a wide range of organisations, including Wellingtone. These Practitioners provided consultancy advice across three key areas: Planning & Strategy, Technology, Marketing & Communications. It should be noted that this would not be possible without professionals donating their time and Microsoft kindly providing the venue, cost free.

The Wellingtone PMDoS UK will bring real change to those organisations that are fighting to make a difference and put the UK industry on the map as an industry that gives back.

Our next event will be held on Thursday 6th December 2018 in Manchester City Centre.
