Experience Cooperation and the Future the Global Status of the Project Management Profession by James S Pennypacker pdf

Experience Cooperation and the Future the Global Status of the Project Management Profession by James S Pennypacker pdf free download. It was an honor for me once again to lead PMI’s Global Forum initiative and, along with Brian Fletcher, to plan and manage the 1996 Global Project Management Forum held in Boston during 9-10 October 1996. I believe it was another great success, as representatives from more than 40 countries participated. I also think it was another important step toward globalization of the modern project management profession. Modern professional project management is being embraced by an increasing number of organizations and professionals across many industries, as reflected by PMI’s annual growth rate of over 40 percent over the past three years. This is true not only in North America but around the world.

In many countries national project management associations or PMI chapters are being formed as more organizations adapt modern project management as a major success strategy, in increasingly competitive markets and economies. Project management knowledge and skills are in great demand for career development and professional growth, as professionals recognize their usefulness in uncertain economic conditions.

Just as importantly, modern project management is finally attracting the attention of leading academic institutions around the world, many of which are offering executive education and graduate degree programs in project management. This seems especially true outside of the United States. In countries with rapidly growing economies, leading universities are adapting U.S. and European best practices for managing technology, managing change, managing in a global economy, or managing the many infrastructure and social development projects being sponsored by multinational development banks and agencies.

This is reflected by the fact that many newly formed project management organizations around the world are sponsored by or associated with leading universities in those countries. Globalization of the modem project management profession requires that industrial organizations, government agencies and academic institutions recognize and embrace project management. Just as importantly, however, globalization of the profession requires that a common language, set of concepts and standards be established and agreed on by the world’s professional societies. Professional associations are the “standard bearers” of professional project management. It is our responsibility to get organized, to establish a baseline and to advance the profession on a global basis.

This book and the 1996 Global Project Management Forum in Boston were important steps forward. As emphasized in many of the country reports in this book, however, it is important to many of our colleagues around the world that we continue these efforts. Fot me personally, one of the most rewarding aspects of these recent globalization activities is the way countries never before represented, such as Argentina, the Czech Republic, Indonesia, Mexico, Pakistan, and the Philippines, have been brought into the discussions.

The opportunities truly are becoming global in both context and scope. I encourage all project management experts and professionals to get involved. Attend the next Global Project Management Forum in 1997. Respect those who are contributing time and energy to the globalization efforts, and support the leaders of your local project management associations who are leading the way. Working together, globalization of the modern project management profession might arrive much sooner than any of us realizes.
