Project Management Networking Forum

Primary tabs

The Georgia Tech Project Management Networking Forum (PMNF) presents an opportunity for the Georgia Tech community to come together and discuss how they plan, manage, and execute projects. We will learn from each other as we share our experiences and explore ways in which we might better equip ourselves to manage the initiatives we have been asked to lead.

The mission of PMNF is to create a community of practice to foster and encourage the professional development of highly skilled project, program, and portfolio managers, competent and confident in their capacity to drive projects.
