Collaborate to Succeed (C2S) is a volunteer program sponsored by the Project Management Institute-Central Iowa Chapter (PMI-CIC) that supports member project managers engaging with local not-for-profit organizations to the benefit of all involved – organization, volunteer, chapter, and community. The goal is to provide project management services and/or advise organizations on how they can use project management methodology to get more value out of their projects.
We can help by:
1) Mentoring existing staff on use of project management techniques with internally driven projects to improve project execution
2) Acting as the project manager by providing short-term support on a specific project
3) Offering additional development support as part of our partnership with Iowa State University and their information systems capstone class to help with specific needs, such as development of a mobile app or website creation
*Implementation into an existing online environment, hosting applications or websites, and ongoing maintenance is the responsibility of the sponsoring organization and/or their vendor. PMI-CIC is not able to assist with any integration expenses. The PMI-CIC project manager will assist in scope definition as needed with the sponsoring organization and the student-led teams. Our assistance is in the form of content development and administrative functions for use by organization in its ongoing support.
