Program Management Community of Practice.

The Program Management Community of Practice (PM CoP) Web site is being revitalized and refocused. The content that was scattered throughout the former PM CoP has been reorganized under a refreshed scheme that reflects the way the content is presented in the Program Manager's Acquisition Management Courses. This means that the content and information important to PMs can now be found in one or more of the internal and external subject areas and sub-categories familiar to PMs. By organizing the content in this way, interested users can approach program management from their own perspective, seeing what guidance, directives, related Web sites, lessons learned, references, and other information can be used. In addition, users can easily determine if they have content that should be added to the PM CoP from their respective views. As content for these topic areas is identified, editors for specific views will be trained to actively seek out additional contextual information. See the growing CoP at <http://acc.dau.mil/pm>.

The Defense Acquisition University (DAU) wants to ensure that the PM CoP really belongs to the PM Community, not just a few editors. In that light, they are actively soliciting PM experts from throughout the DoD PM community to spearhead development in areas of their expertise within the PM community. DAU will provide training for those experts who would like to take on an editorial role in their areas of expertise. If you are interested in being an active participant and editor for any aspect of the PM CoP, please contact any one of the following three points of contact:
