Out of concern that most project managers do not receive fair recognition for the work they do, Frank Saladis established the International Project Management Day (IPM Day) in 2006. IPM Day provides an excellent opportunity to do just that. Recognition of project teams and acknowledgment of people who do great things are key factors associated with the project manager position.
There's a wide variety of ways to observe International Project Management Day. On the one hand these can include formal events like internal company meetings, presentations about the value of project management, recognition breakfasts, lunches or receptions honoring project teams, local government recognition or proclamation, coordinated professional association events or recognition at a previously scheduled project management event. On the other hand, informal events can also be meaningful and enjoyable.
However large or small, elaborate or simple an observation may be possible in your circumstances, we urge you to find some way to recognize the value that project management and project managers make to your enterprise on International Project Management Day 2010.
