Process and Change Management Collaborators

Welcome to the PCMC!

Project and Change Management Collaborators (PCMC) is a vibrant and responsive peer network at the University of Minnesota. We strive to advance knowledge and foster exceptional results in project and change management.

The PCMC creates opportunities for UMN professionals to:

  •     Share and learn with each other
  •     Highlight existing resources
  •     Encourage personal leadership
  •     Identify ways to overcome inherent challenges of project and change management at the University

PCMC supports University staff taking a project and change management approach to their work as well as those in formal project and change management roles. PCMC recognizes that anyone can benefit from project and change management principles and tools even those without "project management" or "change management" in their job title or description.
