The PM Manifesto, a movement by professional leaders in the project management field, is aimed at promoting PM best practices during implementation of the massive economic stimulus package proposed by new US President Barack Obama. The new PM Manifesto website can be found at http://pmmanifesto.ning.com/
According to David Pells, PMForum President and Managing Editor of the PM World Today eJournal, “The Project Management Manifesto is a call for the US government to properly oversee and manage projects that will be financed with taxpayer money. We recognize that lawmakers and government officials have good intentions and are working hard to address the recession. But we in the project management profession understand how to plan, manage and govern programs and projects. There are best practices available to the government now that should be used and promoted. It is very important that the stimulus funds are used as effectively as possible, and not wasted.”
According to the PM Manifesto website: “We are a community of project management leaders who are experienced in delivering results. As seasoned professionals, we know that there are three key elements to achieving the successful completion of projects that all Americans want and our country desperately needs. We urge that these elements be part of all projects launched through The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.”
