Driving Event #1: Project Manager Training & Development Program
When the Project Management (PM) Training & Development Coordinator (T&DC)
began work, there was no existing PMT&DC infrastructure at the Center to draw support
from. Additionally, the predominately scientific and engineering community had little
interest in PM and did not view it as a professional discipline. The PMT&DC took
advantage of the lack of existing structure to be creative in fostering interest in and
developing ways to deliver PM training which worked within the Center's culture. This
approach, based on a community service philosophy, has resulted in a thriving PMT&D
program and has made a significant positive impact on the Center's culture. The
strategies used to accomplish this include making and leveraging personal contacts,
developing mutually beneficial relationships with other entities interested in training, and
being actively involved in training scheduling, enrollment and evaluation.
