Project Management Day of Service (PMDoS)

Help us give back.
Supporting charities with our Community Network.

Project​ ​Management​ ​Day​ ​of​ ​Service​ ​(PMDoS)® ​was started​ ​in​ ​2014​ ​in​ ​the​ ​US​ ​by​ ​PM4Change, a group​ ​of​ ​40​ ​project​ ​managers​ ​interested​ ​in​ ​civic​ ​engagement​ ​while​ ​furthering​ ​their​ ​beloved profession.​ ​ Driven​ ​by​ ​an​ ​all-volunteer​ ​PMO,​ ​the​ ​first​ ​event​ ​brought​ ​together​ ​300​ ​volunteers​ ​to provide​ ​pro​ ​bono​ ​PM​ ​services​ ​to​ ​100​ ​local​ ​non-profits — a​ ​resounding​ ​success​ ​echoed​ ​across​ ​the​ ​DC area,​ ​within​ ​the​ ​PM​ ​community,​ ​and​ ​even​ ​by​ ​the​ ​White​ ​House​ ​blog.

The Wellingtone partnership with PM4Change means we are the exclusive UK partner for this amazing event. We bring together worthwhile charitable causes with project management practitioners, trainers & consultants for a day of pro bono advice. The UK PMDoS takes place every year on (or as close as possible) to Star Wars Day, May the 4th… obviously.


PMDoS​ ​is​ ​guided​ ​by​ ​a​ ​few​ ​simple​ ​principles:

  • Provide​ ​project​ ​management​ ​expertise​ ​to​ ​community​ ​organisations​ ​that​ ​do​ ​not​ ​understand​ ​the project​ ​management​ ​methodology​ ​or​ ​may​ ​not​ ​be​ ​able​ ​to​ ​afford​ ​project​ ​management​ ​services.

  • Create​ ​a​ ​global​ ​framework​ ​for​ ​project​ ​managers​ ​to​ ​provide​ ​pro-bono​ ​project​ ​management services.

  • Promote​ ​and​ ​elevate​ ​the​ ​status​ ​of​ ​the​ ​project​ ​management​ ​profession​ ​by​ ​clarifying​ ​its​ ​unique value​ ​proposition.


During each consultation session at the PMDoS event, project management practitioners meet with representatives of the participating charities to review prepared “problem statements.”

Using these problem statements as a springboard, the project management practitioners identify solutions, develop clearly defined scope statements and create actionable, customised project plans that will serve as blueprints for business sustainability.

PMDOS | Feel the Force

On Project Management Day of Service (PMDoS), Wellingtone and our fellow volunteers helped UK based charities Feel the Force by unleashing the boundless potential of the project management profession to empower and transform.

Over 50 charities have attended our London and Manchester based events receiving support and guidance from leading project management practitioners from a wide range of organisations, including Wellingtone. These practitioners provided consultancy advice across three key areas: Planning & Strategy, Technology, Marketing & Communications. It should be noted that this would not be possible without practitioners donating their time for free. We are also grateful to our friends at RSM and Microsoft for providing venues at no cost.

The Wellingtone PMDoS brings about real practical benefits to organisations who themselves are fighting to make a difference and typically do not have access to project management expertise.
