I have an interesting background as a career civil servant, which contributed greatly to my decision to do a doctoral program in Organization and Management with a concentration in Project Management at Capella University.
First, I have grown in a community where there were huge demands for not-for-profit projects like the construction of pipe borne water, education programs for females and small- scale businesses for young professionals. More importantly, my experience in the civil service made me aware that the quality, type, and purpose of each project to the beneficiary community was important. I later noticed that this need was global and huge. I also noticed that project management methodologies have been and continue to be crucial in the delivery of these projects in the not-for-profit sector, to ensure their successful, efficient, and effective impact on the beneficiaries.
While many people failed to notice the importance of project management methodologies in this sector for various reasons, I found it to be of great relevance because there was the need for project control specialists to help monitor and evaluate these projects. It was during my studies in project management that I noticed the existence of another need, the insufficient training personnel available to train more people to become project management professionals (PMP). This heightened my desire to train people in project management to help address the need, hence my great passion for project management.
It is very obvious that there have not been many PMPs globally within the not-for-profit sector in the past twenty to thirty years. Statistics show that most project managers have been predominantly involved in the Information Technology industry. I came to realize that Project Management Professionals are and will continue to be in as high demand in the Information Technology sector as in the not-for-profit sector.
In addition to the relevance and the high need for project managers, I have been motivated to train more project managers to beef up the supply of their skills, knowledge, and services in other sectors like the not-for-profit sector apart from the information Technology sector. It is with that motivation of contributing my quota in helping to augment the skills and services of PMPs especially in the not-for-profit organizations that I offer my services to teach and train people who are interested in becoming project management professionals
