“If I participate in the Community, then I will increase my knowledge of Integrated PM, improve my project’s performance, and have many opportunities to increase my income, but I might not fit into the culture.”
The Center of Excellence is an open Community of Practice, started in Austin TX, by a group of PM consultants in 2009.
Today, it is a group of self-governing people from around the world, organized and constrained within an on-line Community, e-Learning, InnovationSpark and GrandView structure supporting the expansion of Integrated PM.
We hold each other accountable for constantly improving the quality of our shared practice within Integrated PM. As community members, we hold to these four values listed below:
COMMUNICATION - We have an obligation to communicate. Here, we take time to talk with one another … and to listen. We believe that information is meant to flow, and that information moves people.
RESPECT - We treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves. We do not tolerate abusive or disrespectful treatment.
INTEGRITY - We work with customers, members, and prospects openly, honestly, and sincerely. When we say we will do something, we do it; when we say we cannot or will not do something, then we won’t do it.
EXCELLENCE - We are satisfied with nothing less than the very best in everything we do. We will continue to raise the bar for everyone. The great fun here, will be for all of us to discover just how good we can really be.
As an open community, we believe the Center of Excellence, and all its Members, perform a public service that becomes more and more relevant each day, as all of us reach out and help those we encounter, and together become more capable PMs.
