The combination of the PM World Journal (PMWJ) and PM World Library (PMWL) are global resources for project-oriented organizations. Both the PMWJ and PMWL provide educational content for educating and developing project managers and their teams, new information from around the world of professional project and program management (P/PM), opportunities for corporate executives and professional staff to increase their credentials through publishing articles and papers, and various opportunities for organizations to gain positive visibility.
CONTINUOUS LEARNING IMPROVES PERFORMANCE
Continuous improvement in organizational performance today often requires increased productivity, new methods and technologies for accomplishing projects, new or different resources, new approaches, and even new information. Project managers and their teams must embrace continuous learning in order to develop new knowledge and skills, to stay abreast of changes in the P/PM field, and to manage increasingly complex programs and projects successfully.
Each month, the PMWJ includes new articles and papers from around the world, with new P/PM topics, new perspectives, new knowledge. The PMWJ contents are then archived in the PMWL, where they become available for searching and reading according to topic or context. Whether individuals and teams learn a little or a lot, continuous learning can only help organizations be more successful. Visit the PM WORLD COLLECTION section of the PMWL.
LOW COST PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Most P/PM professionals are anxious to advance their careers, through education, professional certifications and other means. In today’s economy, with increased pressures on budgets and overheads, more organizations worldwide have reduced their investment in professional development for employees. The PMWJ and PMWL offer a low-cost alternative for professional learning and development. Executives and leaders can read and share articles and papers within their teams. Case studies and book reviews can be useful, and the news can help everyone keep up with the PM profession. The authoring of articles and papers can bring positive benefits to authors and organizations alike.

STAY ABREAST WITH P/PM INTELLIGENCE
Many factors can influence the success or failure of programs and projects today, especially those involving multiple teams, multiple international locations, multiple stakeholders, significant complexity, complicated environmental considerations, new technologies, large budgets, long schedules and other conditions. The PMWL contains good sources of important information for project and program managers, and for project-oriented organizations, including access to:
- News – various news feeds related to P/PM from around the world
- P/PM Books/eBooks – the latest information from authors & publishers, access to eBooks at low cost
- Journals and Magazines – all known P/PM journals and mags, plus others
- Websites & Blogs – access to the most reputable worldwide
In addition, with rapid changes continuing in the P/PM field, information about new developments might be highly useful for many organizations. In all cases, program and project managers should stay abreast of changing conditions that might affect their projects.
Each month’s edition of the PMWJ includes papers describing new research results, concepts or applications, along with news stories related to research, education, professional activities, events and other topics affecting P/PM around the world. Reports from industry and about programs and projects are included. While it might not be everything one needs to know, all readers will find something interesting or useful. And all PMWJ contents are archived in the PMWL, so many months worth of information and knowledge is available.
Authors of articles and papers can establish themselves as experts in the subject of their writing. Program and project managers who openly discuss their approaches, experiences and solutions can establish credibility with readers, many of whom may be potential customers or stakeholders. When senior executives and managers author professional papers, their organizations are often viewed as more mature and more capable. Many organizations provide white papers for customers for just this reason. If you want your organization to have more credibility in the P/PM professional field or marketplace, encourage the authoring of professional papers for PMWJ publication. Those papers are then archived in the PMWL where they will be available to readers worldwide for many years.
GAIN VISIBILITY - CREATE SOME BUZZ
Most organizations value positive publicity. If your organization has some news that can be shared about your programs, projects, people or P/PM capabilities, submit an article or story for publication. If your executives or project managers have some great experience or knowledge, showcase that expertise in an article or paper.
If your organization offers RSS feeds or automated distribution of press releases, we can include your news in the PMWL. Send a link to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Gain some visibility! Create some buzz about your organization – personal word of mouth can be the most effective marketing possible.
