From Gantthead.com to ProjectManagement.com 20 years and still IT?
I came across this text: "gantthead.com is the premier community for Information Technology (IT) Project Managers."

Does it mean that ProjectManagement.com is still directed primarily to IT project management? Did sufficient efforts are made to be inclusive of all domains, Government, Aerospace, construction to name a few?

Or is ProjectManagement.com still for IT?

I hear your concern but I also agree with Kiron's POV. When I first started engaging back in 2015, this platform was heavily IT based but over the years, I noticed the change in direction and the evolving of other industries like health-care and construction but change takes time and I expect we will see more changes towards more diversity in topics and industries in the near future.

Rami,

I have seen it myself, it did increase over the last four years. I'm advocating to increase the effort. Some articles are "order", maybe the should be directed on all industry or not IT.

Thanks for our feedback.
There definitely seems to be a lean toward IT general, whether within the community, or outside. This is the first time in my career I've been outside IT and since the transition recognize the often weighted opinion/content/etc.toward IT.

Andrew,

Like me, I have been in many industries, starting with IT, now more in Construction. I appreciate having articles covering any industry. Since projects are not limited to IT, ProjectManagement.com is owned by PMI, and is the most interactive arm of PMI it should make it a priority to cover all fields.

Why not integrate things more specific to other industries like Agile and Scrum for IT?
