PM Knowledgeable Youth
Project management skills have been valuable in your life. What if you had learned them earlier? Do you remember your favorite teacher?
At the PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF), we’re dedicated to teaching project management skills to young people and teachers around the world — giving them the tools and processes they can use to make a difference in their own communities.
PM Capable Nonprofits
Nonprofit organizations do so much good in our world.
At the PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF), we know they can be even more efficient and effective at accomplishing their missions if they deploy project management skills.
That’s why we work to build the project management capability of nonprofit and non-governmental organizations, especially in recovery efforts to rebuild after disasters strike.
Your generosity will be enable us to further extend our profession beyond the business setting — to youth, teachers, and nonprofit/non-governmental organization (NGO) leaders worldwide.
A gift to PMIEF of just $25 by year-end will have a ripple effect on the youth, teachers, and nonprofit/non-governmental organizations (NGOs) we work with who make a difference in our communities every day!
Together we’ll change the world, one project at a time!
Two familiar names in the project management and education world have teamed up to release a new unique book called Project Management for Education: The Bridge to 21st Century Learning (“PM4Ed” for short). Bernie Trilling and Walter Ginevri have decades of educational and project management experience between them and work globally to build fundamental bridges between project management and education. Their innovative new book is a perfect representation of their valuable collaboration…and now you can benefit from their impressive wealth of knowledge!
So, what makes this book so cutting-edge? PM4Ed is actually two books in one: an Educator Guide and a Project Manager Guide bringing the advantages and benefits of project management’s powerful and practical principles and practices to the world of primary and secondary education.
By flipping this book over, you can switch between the two guides to explore how both educators and project managers (PMs) are increasingly moving toward the same goal—to help all students become more successful 21st century learners, and be well-prepared for future work, citizenship, family, and community life.
After reading this book both teachers and project managers will be able to answer the critical question, How do we manage learning projects, and how can we help students be more effective designers and managers of their own learning?

All proceeds from the book will go to the PMI Educational Foundation as the authors have graciously agreed to forego royalties.
