Project Services

Have you at times been thinking that a project manager could really help your organization out?

Since 2010 PMV (formerly pm-volunteers.org) has helped over 200 nonprofit organizations achieve project goals through professional project management.

Examples of the kind of projects we are engaged with include:

  • Event planning and implementation
  • IT-related projects
  • Renovations & small construction
  • Office moves
  • Fundraising campaigns
  • Websites development or upgrades
  • Strategic planning
  • And many, many other unique projects!

When you contact us,

  1. We will first assess your project and make sure there is a fit between your needs and the support we can provide.
  2. We will then develop with you a project outline and position description for the Volunteer PM.
  3. PMV will use this to advertise your opportunity within the professional project management community.
  4. Project managers who are interested will apply to you; you review the applications, conduct interviews and select the person you want to work with.
  5. PMV will provide monitoring and support throughout the project, and will lead a project Close-Out Session at the end.

“Connecting with PMV provided us the guidance and focus we needed to leverage the skills of our IT Services team to successfully transition all our staff to Microsoft Office 365. This was an ambitious project but our assigned Project Manager was key in supporting the development of our implementation plan.”

Nonprofits rely on PMV to connect them with Project Managers interested in volunteering to help improve their chances of project success. We work with nonprofits to define the specific requirements of each project, and then post them as Opportunities that Project Managers can volunteer for depending on their interests. The nonprofits are responsible for interviewing and selecting final candidates, as well as the terms of engagement. PMV offers ongoing support to both the nonprofit and the volunteer Project Manager throughout the project, and also facilitates a “Lessons Learned” session for all stakeholders at the closeout phase of the assignment.
