According to PMForum Managing Editor David Pells, “We are thrilled to have a representative in Zimbabwe, an important African country that has been dealing with serious political and economic problems in recent years. Clearly, projects and project management will be critical for the country’s rebound, so it will be great for us to have a correspondent there. Also, since there is currently no project management professional body, PMI chapter or visibility for the project management profession in Zimbabwe, it is exciting for PMForum to be there first. We look forward to working with Henry to put Zimbabwe on the project management map, to learning about the country’s projects and project management needs, and to helping advance the PM profession there.”
