Project Management


The mission of the Forum's Project Management Work Group is to devise, implement and sponsor events and programs, customized for NYS-based government entities, that facilitate the development and growth of project management best practices and competencies.

Current Programs and Events

The PM Work Group supports government entities and government project managers as they mature project management standards and practices, evolve Project Management Offices (PMOs), and implement program and portfolio management within their organizations. The PM Work Group has established and leads the following groups and programs in this effort:

The NYS PM Community of Practice (PM COP) provides a forum for an interactive exchange of ideas, practices, lessons learned, etc. among project managers in New York government. This knowledge exchange is facilitated by regularly scheduled presentations and discussions. This group is open to all NYS Forum members interested in learning more about Project Management topics.

The PM Work Group also sponsors joint events with other Forum Work Groups and outside organizations, such as the local PMI and IIBA chapters.
As part of the Professional Development initiative, the Work Group has offerings for both new or aspiring project managers who are just starting out on this journey, as well as experienced practitioners who want to continue to learn from their peers and the industry.

To Participate:

Community of Practice, Professional Development and other jointly sponsored events are posted on the NYS Forum's Calendar of Events. All NYS Forum State and Local Government and Corporate members are welcome to join the PM Community of Practice listserv to be kept informed of upcoming PM COP, Professional Development and joint events and to receive other related communications and surveys (select "Join a Workgroup" from the Quick Links navigation menu on the right).

To Get Involved:

If these activities sound like fun, and if you would like to become involved in the planning and execution of these programs and events and in bringing added value to the NYS project management community, consider becoming a member of the NYS PM Work Group.

We have monthly meetings and all we ask is that you come ready to do some exciting work (it is, after all, called a WORKgroup) and contribute your talents and expertise to this important public-private partnership.

To get involved, please contact one of the co-chairs listed below.
