Yes, there’s actually a “day” for project managers: November 6th, 2008. See the link below for more information. Here’s a little teaser quote from the web site.
The international project management day is intended to encourage project based organizations worldwide or organizations who utilize project management methodologies to schedule some type of recognition event within their organizations or coordinated locally with others to truly demonstrate appreciation for the achievements of project managers and their teams.
My job is more than just project management. I oversee operations and projects. I perform project planning, and do lots of project management. I even write a little code from time to time. My gut feeling is that most folks wear several hats these days. Project management is only one of many. But those many things can lead to distraction and bad projects.
An organization like this pulls us back into the discipline. Back into the bedrock rules that make all successful projects work. That’s a good thing. If you haven’t registered for allPM’s webinar, here’s a link to do it! http://www.iil.com/ipmday2008/webcast.asp
