Join us on November 27th 2018 for an Open House based on Project Management for Social Good®, a collaborative event between ProjectManagement.com and the PMI Educational Foundation, the philanthropic arm of PMI®.

During this event, we’ll explore content from practitioners that are leveraging their skills and knowledge to deliver a huge impact.
Check out articles from recipients of different PMIEF awards and scholarships and learn how they benefited from project management. Explore sample training reports and development plans and even fun family project management ideas to inspire you in your everyday and work life. Take a break from reading, and tune into the webinars presented by project management professionals and PMI members – you won’t want to miss it! Plus, meet individuals, organizations and chapter leaders that use their PM skills to magnify the impact of their community nonprofit organizations.
Don’t miss this once a year chance to explore opportunities to give back in your community with your practitioner skills. We’ll unlock no-cost resources, webinars, blog posts, and articles around this important theme, and open the floor for discussion about how to get involved and – more importantly – why it matters.

PMI’s Project Management Journal (PMJ) is now accepting papers for a special issue on Project Transitions. While a great deal of research focuses on the specificities of various project phases, there are a number of technical, organizational, economic, and managerial challenges relating to the transitions across the phases. Transitional issue examples include, but are far from limited to, challenges such as the handover of data and knowhow, change in the workforce, and scope management.
Surprisingly, transition-related project phenomena remain remarkably under-investigated. Addressing transitional issues in projects is important not only for creating projects that deliver value to their respective organizations, users, and operators but also to maintain a more effective delivery while moving from one phase to the next.
Contributions to this special issue can be theoretical or empirical, based on any project-related topic concerning transitions. Authors may choose to focus on transitions across the temporal phases of the system’s life as the main conceptual framework. However, the special issue editors strongly encourage contributions addressing project transitions under new or different conceptual lenses.
Editors for this special issue are:
The deadline for papers is 31 January 2019. For more information on the special issue, visit https://www.pmi.org/learning/publications/project-management-journal/special-issue-project-transitions.
General submission guidelines are available from the journal publisher, SAGE, at https://us.sagepub.com/en-us/nam/project-management-journal/journal203528#submission-guidelines.
