When there’s a big project on the line, there’s the chance that it will either fall apart, take longer, or cost more if it’s not managed properly.

The heroes that save the day are our project managers, who keep projects on track and running smoothly. International Project Management Day recognizes the significant contributions of project managers everywhere.

“International Project Management Day first came about in 2004, spearheaded by Laverne Johnson and Lori Milhaven in conjunction with the men and women of the IIL (International Institute of Learning) team. They knew the hard work that project managers do, and how much they add to a project coming off efficiently and on time, with all the p’s and q’s crossed,” the Days of the Year website explains.

Giving project managers the tools they need can make their job much easier. A Gartner Software Market Insights report on project management found that 53% of survey respondents purchased project management software in order to increase productivity and improve business efficiency. As we recognize project managers, something to keep in mind is the importance that project management software can play in helping companies achieve their goals. 

In honor of International Project Management Day, we have curated content and resources just for them.
