PM Musings

A New Role for the Seasoned Project Manager – Advocate for Project Management Ready Youth
by William A Moylan, PhD, PMP, FESD, DTM Eastern Michigan University

James R. Snyder, PMI founder, and lifelong innovator has long prophesied that the future of the universe requires a “generation of project-oriented people capable of solving project-oriented problems” to deal with the multitude of pressing global issues [Ginevri & Trilling, pg. vii]. This lofty yet realistic goal requires the integration of project management skills into the K-13 education system. The PMI Educational Foundation and an army of committed PMI volunteers have made great strides in providing project management awareness and training programs for youth, K-13 educators, and non-profit organizations. However, awareness is not enough for young people to enter the workforce; solid education programs for students with verifiable knowledge attainment are essential for project management-ready youth. Read the complete article.
