Kathy to start and introduces herself and then Jeannette, John and Richard.
The PMI Educational Foundation is the philanthropic arm of PMI. Under the U.S. tax code, it is a supporting organization of PMI, although it is a separately incorporated nonprofit organization. Even though the name, “PMI Educational Foundation”, may sound like we are a private foundation, it is not. The PMI Educational Foundation is a public charity and is dependent on donations for the work that it does. The Foundation is focused on being a grant-giving organization. Generally, we don’t operate like a component, by creating great initiatives, gathering volunteers, and then executing those initiatives. We couldn’t possibly reach the entire globe this way. But, occasionally for the right cause and opportunity, we do facilitate the creation of critical programs and educational resources. So we provide grants tp others for scholarships and to create curricula, tools, partnerships and so forth. In some situations, the foundation will facilitate the creation of a program with external partners and then shift back toward its grant giving focus. The extent of grant giving that the foundation is able to do is dependent upon its ability to raise funds.
In our view, project management is not only a critical professional competency for those who consider project management to be their profession along with those who consider project management to be critical competency for another profession, but project management is also an important life skill for youths, adults, families, community organizations, etc. Just like we all practice medicine, accounting, landscaping, etc. at home without being a professional in those fields, project management principles, practices, tools, and techniques are relevant everywhere and can be positioned in a developmentally appropriate way.
PMI is a nonprofit organization under US tax code – it is a membership association for professionals interested in project, program and portfolio management. PMI is focused on advancing the professional aspects of project, program and portfolio management for its members and certificants, their employers, their suppliers, and all other stakeholders. PMI has as its brand promise “making project management indispensible for business (and government) results.” PMI is focused on enabling individuals and organizations to be successful through the application of professional project, program, and portfolio management. The PMI Educational Foundation is focused on bringing the power of project, program, and portfolio management to the rest of society – it is focused on improving the effectiveness and efficiency of various elements of society through the leveraging of project, program, and portfolio management principles, processes, and practices.
Let me start by sharing with you some of the recent accomplishments of the PMI Educational Foundation. The Foundation administers more than 40 academic scholarships, five student paper awards, online training scholarships to dozens of teachers and nonprofit employees around the world, and a doctoral research grant program. The total value of these programs has grown from $30,000 in 2006 to more than $400,000 last year and we are endeavoring to increase that amount in 2010. We are very excited about our Project Management Toolkit for Youth , which is used to teach project management to secondary school students in a project-centered environment. The toolkit, as well as all other products offered by the PMI Educational Foundation, are available for no-cost download from the Foundation web site for non-commercial use. In addition to this toolkit, the web site contains a repository of PMI chapter initiatives and workshop for enabling new project management programs in primary and secondary schools around the world. And because project management is a professional skill beneficial to teachers and administrators, we offer training scholarships for them. The horrific tragedy of the Haitian earthquake is certainly reminiscent in an unpleasant way of the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami. Once again, we learn about the outpouring of assistance and dollars, along with the heroism of survivors and volunteers, while simultaneously learning about the failures of collaboration and coordination as everyone rushes to help on their own terms. PMIEF has been working to enhance the project, program, and portfolio management competency of nonprofits and non-governmental organizations through the development of contextually relevant training materials and the training of their headquarters and field personnel.
Because project management is a skill beneficial to everyone, the PMI Educational Foundation has provided a variety of grants to demonstrate its value in a number of different environments and situations such as teaching project management to secondary school girls in Ghana, providing displace professionals with an understanding of project management as a skill and a career choice, introducing project management to teachers as a means of encouraging them to take additional learning and advocating for project-centered learning in schools; that is, shifting the role of teachers from being “the sage on the stage to the guide on the side!” As mentioned already, the PMI Educational Foundation makes its products (and those of some PMI Chapters) available for no-cost download for non-commercial use. There products include the Project Management Toolkit for Youth discussed in conjunction with the previous slide, the PMI Project Management Methodology for Post Disaster Reconstruction used by several chapters in response to local disasters, the Project Management Skills for Life used to teach project management skills to women who are victims of domestic abuse in Nigeria, to individuals building their own small houses in South Africa, to girls enrolled in a project based learning program in Ghana, and to other nonprofits in Nigeria and India. And, it has been used in many other situations throughout the word. The Careers in Project Management is being used to introduce project management to secondary school students, juvenile delinquents, scout groups, and other youth groups around the world.
Although the Educational Foundation has been in existence since 1991, it went through a major revision of its programs and activities in 2006/2007 – resulting in three programs areas which have their primary focus as: helping college students realize their dreams through education. giving youth and communities a better chance of success improving the response to tragedy which seems to occur with greater frequency and intensity.
This is the first area of focus. The Foundation and its supporters are helping college students realize their dreams through education. Scholarships are one of the oldest programs of the PMI Educational Foundation. Recently, we have broadened this program area to focus more completely on Building a Better Prepared workforce for the future. Not only have we been able to expand the number of and amount of academic scholarships, but we now offers awards for study related to project management. Furthermore as funding opportunities present themselves PMIEF will potentially support initial employment opportunities for newly graduated project management students with humanitarian or environmental organizations through internships or apprenticeships, and enabling the introduction of project management education more broadly through the potential of funding visiting professorships and the establishment of academic programs in universities in developing areas. We have seen tremendous growth in our scholarship program over the past three years.
This is the Foundation’s second area of focus and the area growing most quickly. Regardless of which country we come from, none of these countries are happy with their educational systems. Additionally, studies show that many new employees do not have the skills essential for job success such as teamwork, collaboration, communication, and leadership. The skills needed to be a successful employee are also the same core skills of project management. Projects are the currency of modern-day work – they provide the learning vehicle to teach students essential 21st Century applied skills. Applying project management basics to teaching methods will improve education for all. In order to further this effort, the PMI Educational Foundation has joined the Partnership for 21 st Century Skills involving other foundations, corporations, educators, and content providers to assist with the program development. Some notable partners include: Oracle, Intel, Microsoft, Cisco, Ford Motor Company Foundation, Buck Institute for Education, George Lucas Education Foundation, and Global SchoolNet Foundation. The PMI Educational Foundation developed the Project Management Toolkit for Youth, something we introduced at last year’s LIM session. PMIEF is offering project management training scholarships for teachers, and is encourage the use of the Project Management Life Skills material to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of local community organizations.
We are working with youth orientated groups. These groups utilized Skills for Life, which is one of the Foundation’s educational resources and created a program to teach youth the life skill of project management. Children International has incorporated a project management module into a leadership class that they deliver teenagers. Once the class is completed the teams are given a stipend to do a project that will benefit their village. The students will be practicing their project management skills while doing their projects, along with mentors from local PMI members. This has been translated into Spanish for the Children International pilot. This handsome gentleman is the symbol for PM4Africa. Local PMI members work with students to do projects and with young adults to build Wendy house while teaching pm skills. In Mexico 400 children learned project management skills to complete in a robotics competition that was run by the Mexico City Chapter
We have partnered with Children International an International Organization NGO whose mission it is to help children in dire poverty. A project management module is being added as part of the leadership development course that CI offers to youth. Local youth learn leadership skills and implement a project benefit their community. Rafael Lara, a PMI member, Microsoft employee and Children International volunteer introduced the PMIEF and CI because he believed that the youth served by CI would benefit from learning the life skill of project management. CI evaluated the PMIEF materials and decided the Project Management Skills for Life contained the information that add value to their programs. The pilot site is in the Dominican Republic. Rafael and a group of Microsoft volunteers translated the materials into Spanish. Rafael trained the local CI staff and also recruited PMI volunteers from the Dominican Republic. The CI staff was so enthused by the training that the have recommended that all CI staff should receive project management training. Local PMI volunteers mentored the staff and will also mentor the students. The student training starts in October and the student will use their newly learned skills to implement the community project. If CI determines that this pilot is successful, and we have every indication that this will be the outcome, we will schedule additional programs in other countries where Children International in located.
The Foundation also collaborates with other entities and was invited to participate in two US states committees to develop secondary school curriculums. Statewide. This demonstrate that educators are recognizing the value of project management as a skill that can help prepare their students to complete in 21 st century work force. The State of North Carolina is developing a series of four project management courses and reached out to the Foundation for help. We quickly pulled together a volunteer team to help. These volunteers are from three PMI North Carolina Chapters, The State of North Carolina is part of the Southern Regional Education Board, a coalition of 16 states that develop curriculum and training resources. There is potential that the project management program could adopted by all of the 16 states. In addition to the creation of these four courses, the Foundation has recommended that the State work with us to create a training program for their teachers. Washington State is evaluating a project management framework that would be incorporated into the state’s Career and Technical Education programs. The framework is based on PMBOK and incorporates PMI principles. Both of these programs provide a wonderful opportunity to teach youth an important life skill.
This is the PMI Toolkit for Youth we noted earlier. 21 st century skills are defined as the skills that are outside of core curriculum which include math and science. Examples of 21 st century skills are communication, collaboration and computer literacy, we believe that project management is a 21 st century skill that should be taught to our students at a early age. Through partnerships with PMI members and chapters we have created the Project Management Toolkit for Youth, these materials can be used to create a project management program at your local school. All the materials can be downloaded from our web site at no charge for non-commercial use. The CD contains all of the material included the translated materials.
This map does not represent all of the pilot programs that are underway globally. A pilot test of the new Project Management Toolkit for Youth was conducted near the PMI Global Operations Center in the USA in an alternative high school of a local school district. The alternative school meets in a local shopping center in space donated by the foundation of the shopping center owner. Simon Youth Foundation provides space in 40 other shopping malls in the USA owned by Simon Properties. Simon Youth Foundation is assessing whether to expand the program to their other locations. The school district hired the instructor from a local university and the PMI Delaware Valley Chapter provided mentors for the student teams as they did in the Philadelphia School District project. The school district is considering whether to bring the curriculum into the regular high school. Additionally, a Rotary Club outside Seattle, Washington USA is working with their local school district and volunteers from the PMI Puget Sound Chapter in Seattle. Rotary club members with project management experience will serve as the instructors. This Rotary Club plans to showcase this pilot at the Rotary Club International Conference in June and will allow the PMI Educational Foundation to participate in their booth. Because it is important for PMIEF to understand how this toolkit functions in other cultures, a number of PMI Chapters and individuals are assessing whether to utilize it – the current list of potential locations includes Sydney, Singapore, Mexico (in Spanish), Germany, Israel, and Bahrain. Obviously adding a new class to an existing school schedule is a significant challenge of stakeholder management. In some cases, it appears that introducing the course as an after-class project may be necessary initially.
The PMIEF is pleased that chapters have used PMIEF materials to create Project Management Programs with and secondary schools, non profits and NGOs around the world. These are photos from high school class in from Washington State in the US, and NGO in Sao Paulo and a middle school in Zabreze, Poland. Program have also been held in Mumbai, India and Sydney, Australia.
As mentioned, there is a potential of expanded use of the toolkit through other Rotary Club Chapters globally. And, discussions about use of the toolkit and/or other PMIEF products are underway with JA Worldwide and Children International, both of which like Rotary International are global organizations with chapters and/or volunteers throughout the world. The intent would be to engage PMI members as classroom mentors either directly or through PMI chapters. Additionally, PMIEF would look to partner with local universities for instructors and potentially college credit for the students. PMIEF would provide books like the PMBOK ® Guide and certificates of accomplishment for the students.
This is the Foundation’s third area of focus. We also continue to fund new initiatives; such as an investigation into the value of setting up a global network of research and education centers focused on project management disaster-related project management research and education. Providing scholarships for project management training to Nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations. Due to the generous support of a donor, we now have made available 40 scholarships per year for nonprofit organizations to take an online training course in project management. And, we recently funded the creation of a workshop for nonprofits on using project management. This will dovetail nicely with the training scholarships available so that once introduced, our hope is that nonprofit organizations will take advantage of the training scholarships. Upon completion of the workshop, we will offer it for free via our website for those who wish to bring it to their local community. We anticipate that local chapters may wish to implement the workshop themselves or may wish to work with their local United Way or Nonprofit Resource Network or other community partner to implement the workshop.
Recently as a result of the devastating flooding in Pakistan, the PMI Karachi Chapter in Pakistan reached out to us to help train their local nonprofit organizations. The Foundation helped to connect them to an organization in Australia to provide training. This connection resulted in a first ever training opportunity in Pakistan for a number of nonprofit organizations. The examples I’ve just noted in the three program areas are just a fraction of the work we do everyday at the PMI Educational Foundation. When you have a chance visit our website to see more. And join our mailing list for our new e-newsletter which will give you examples of the work we do all the time.
We also create and share resources related to project management for social good. All of these materials can be found on the Foundation’s web site at www.pmief.org for PMI Educational Foundation. All can be downloaded free of charge for non commercial use. This means that we hope you will take these materials and use them in your local communities teaching teachers, working with youth, and training nonprofit staff. We also ask that you do not charge for the materials.
Here are some of our many educational resources. Some of these products are available in Spanish, Polish, French and Brazilian Portuguese. Others are in various stages of translation. The PMI Educational Foundation is receptive to translation assistance by volunteers when a local need is identified and then makes the translated version available for no-cost download for non-commercial use.
As I stated earlier, the PMI Educational Foundation is focused on being a grant-giving organization which only happens with donation. Like a car that runs as long and as far as it has gasoline in the tank or electricity in its battery, the Foundation is able to accomplish only as much as we have the funds to support. As a charitable organization, the PMI Educational Foundation is very appreciative of all of the gifts we receive. Consequently, in every presentation and other opportunity, it is important to recognize and thank our donors. As a demonstration of faith in the Foundation and support for our three program areas, the PMI Board of Directors made a matching gift contribution toward initial fundraising and operations of the foundation. Then IIL came forward with the initial leadership gift commitment of $1 Million to fund four Dr. Harold Kerzner Scholarships of US$7,500 annually and primary and secondary education project. Another major commitment was received from University of Management and Technology and from Cheetah Learning. And other significant donors are Cadence Management Corporation, the PMI Arabian Gulf Chapter and the PMI Minnesota Chapter.
These other PMI chapters made significant contributions along with McBride Consulting Group, Inc. a business partner of Cheetah Learning.
Al most 40 PMI Chapters support the charitable activities of PMIEF. If there is anyone here from any of the PMI components who have donated to the PMI Educational Foundation, please stand and let us thank you. Those highlighted in red are donors who just joined us in within the last year, the others have been consistent supporters of the Foundation or have endowed programs.
A number of PMIEF donors have made legacy gifts, which are gifts that are put into an endowment and the income received from the funds are what is used dot fund annual programs or scholarships they’ve created through PMIEF. This ensures their gift is sustainable and supports program s in perpetuity.
What is really unique about the PMI Educational Foundation is the ability to multiply the effect of its donations by making products developed as a result of its grants and products it chooses to develop directly available on its website for …… (for no-cost download for non-commercial use). And, what is also unique is the generosity of PMI chapters who allow their products focused on helping societ6y through project management be made available on the PMIEF web site. And lastly, PMI seeks partnering opportunities with major charitable and service organizations who have the capability to expand the use of PMIEF products.

And lastly, PMI seeks partnering opportunities with major charitable and service organizations who have the capability to expand the use of PMIEF products. ‘ ‘ Our ability to accomplish this is directly related to the support of others. We put out copies of the map on your tables for you to see as well as a brochure. We are truly leveraging project management for social good all around the globe. – no t only in locally but across continents. And this map is sampling of that work. Since the creation of the map earlier this year, our educational resources have been used in many more countries. And growing everyday!!
Some brand new announcements for 2010 included the addition of the Kerzner Award Sponsored by International Institute for Learning, Inc. We recently were selected by IIL to administer this award and will happy to announce a recipient during next year’s Congress.
Since our tremendous growth over the past four years, we have learned many lessons and have had numerous questions from chapters. Combined with the fact that our family of educational resources is quickly growing we created a new PMIEF Liaison for PMI Chapters. The goal of this role is to primarily be the conduit of information between PMI Chapters and the PMI Educational Foundation. We currently have about 40 Liaisons and are conducting our first discussion with a handful of these volunteers this Saturday at 1:30PM If you are interested you may attend. See one of us at the end of the session if you wish to attend. We will also provide coaching for chapters on ways to leverage project management for social good in their communities. PMI Baltimore was the first chapter to agree to this position.
Another new addition is the Annual Campaign. Because of the foundation’s tremendous growth over the past three years, we are now in a new place, we need to raise sustained annual giving to support the growth in programs and services as well as to help plan for future growth - thus the decision to implement an annual campaign. We are testing the waters right now and offering an opportunity PMI chapters to join the PMI Educational Foundation in this groundbreaking experience. We are looking for partners who are creative, enthusiastic, trailblazers from whom others can learn. Like the PMIEF Liaison position, the Foundation’s staff will help train and guide those chapter’s and provide special recognition to these chapter partners. The PMI Baltimore Chapter was again the first chapter to agree to participate. John Kos from the chapter will tell us more about what they are doing in their local community and the experiences with the campaign. But before he starts, I’d like to take a minute to recognize him, his volunteer team and Eric Perlstein the Chapter President for all other their hard work and dedication. It is because of all of you that the PMI Educational Foundation is able to do is good work. Could you and the chapter volunteers please stand and let us recognize you!
As you have undoubtedly learned, there are many ways in which you can get involved locally and in other communities. And these two chapters have demonstrated how they make a difference.
There are a number of ways in you can bring the power of project, program, and portfolio management to your communicate by engaging with the PMI Educational Foundation or by doing it on your own. You can help to by: Reaching out to your local schools Reaching out to a local non-profit – letting them know about our no cost downloads and offer to help them or teach them to manage their projects more efficiently and effectively Mentor at a local school or non-profit Teach project management to youth or adult Help establish partnerships And, of course, if you are able and willing to contribute financially to the PMI Educational Foundation, please do so.
Who in the audience has utilized project, program, or portfolio management as a volunteer somewhere – please share your experience with us. Where else do you think project, program, and portfolio management can help in your local community or elsewhere? What else should be done by the PMI Educational Foundation? What questions do you still have? Thank you for your time and attention. Please feel free to contact me if I can provide any additional information.
You to can help build a better future through project management. If you want to help or want to know more about the plans and progress of the PMI Educational Foundation, please feel free to call the Foundation staff at PMI’s Global offices in Newtown Square, PA. Also, we would like to recognize those chapters who are supporters of PMIEF, after we close the session, please join us up here to accept the chapter’s certificate for the year. Thank you!
